    Default [SNES] Help with power supply for SNES NTSC

    I've got an SNES NTSC and I don't have a power supply that can fit the power plug on the back of the console. After trawling through articles, it seems the specific DC connector was uncommon (7mm outer diameter).

    Has anyone with an SNES NTSC console had a similar issue been able to get a solution locally? Or am I stuck having to pay $60 shipping for a $2 part from eBay?

    Thanks!

    Just to be on the safe side, I'd get a universal power supply for the your NTSC SNES. You want to avoid having any voltage or polarity issues.
    And FYI, the power supply for a PAL SNES console unit is incompatible with that for the NTSC SNES.

    You'd most probably have to import. eBay or Amazon. As I recall, retro-bit had a decently priced 3-in-1 power supply (NES/SNES/Genesis). I haven't checked recenlty though as to their availability.
