That one on eBay is for a 24-100, I think, and won't work in a 24-500. I have a friend who is searching for a PS for a 24-500 and I've been helping him, but we've both failed. Apparently they are not for sale anywhere. As was suggested, you might be trying to save your recordings and replacing the PS would fix that.static2229 said:Does anybody know where I can purchase a power supply for a HR24-500?
I found one for a HR24-100 on eBay, but it is different and does not work.
Any help would be appreciated.
Would seem logical, wouldn't it? I haven't had anything but a 24 as a replacement for any of my HRs since the 24s were introduced.JBv said:I've never actually seen an HR23/22/21 replace an HR24 on an account. I'm not saying it wouldn't happen, but a very good argument can be made that it would be a downgrade due to it's lack of built in DECA, and it very well might not be compatible with the equipment installed. That's the reasoning for it in my head, anyway.
Looks really easy to swap out a PS for another one. Never did one, but I've examined the board and it seems like a few screws and a couple connectors are all that connects it to the chassis. But to pay $100 for a 40-50 dollar part seems a bit excessive. Weaknees has them, why they don't sell them is beyond me.Shades228 said:People should really do some research on how to ensure that power supplies are disharged completely before doing any repair on them. I wouldn't recommend this path as more damage could be done, to the person and the item.
If it's really that important it shouldn't be hard to track a 24 500 for sale and buy it.
