I cannot for the life of me find this damn cord! Even ebay doesn't have anything but the adapter brick thing.

Of course I can find the USB anywhere, but not the stupid AC cord!

Where can I get one?

TIA. :thumbsup:

AC cord? Should be a fairly standard part...coincidentally I think the frat house on the corner just threw an HP printer out last night.

You would think it'd be easy to find...but it's got some weird connector where it attaches to the printer itself.

Tomorrow (Friday) is 'cleaning the garage' day anyway; I'll look through my box o'copper and see if I've still got leftover power cables. I'm guessing it's the one where the plug looks like a figure 8 laid on the side? One of the lobes might be kinda squared off, and the other is almost rounded?

I went to Micro Center and he told me I'd have to get it online somewhere...this is it.

Thanks, I found that ebay one (hence the photo I posted) but It's $30 (with shipping) and I'd have to buy another cord for AC. I got this printer for free...and I found I could buy a brand new one for about $50.

...don't have that one. Three plugs on the connector? Interesting.

It probably works 10x's better than my last HP.O.S.
