Power supply for G25/G27 - Where to find?
« on: March 18, 2016, 12:02:21 PM »
Anybody know where I can get a replacement power supply for my G25 (same as G27)?

I have a problem with mine. It started out that my G25 would turn itself off and back on whenever certain light switches in my house were turned on or off regardless of where I had it plugged in, and has now progressed to the point where it just does it randomly. Happened last night on the 2nd last lap of race 1, luckily I was lonely on the track at the time and it didn't cause issues for anybody else, but it ruined my chance of a 5th place finished.

I have a mate who recently bought a second hand G27 and he brought it around here for testing purposes and it didn't have any problems, so we swapped power supplies and then my one was fine and his started doing the same thing, so it seems the power supply is at fault.

Problem is, I can't seem to find a replacement unit for any kind of reasonable price in Australia (ie. they're expensive enough to make me consider just buying a second hand G27), or they're reasonably priced but overseas.

No chance of getting a universal powersupply from Jaycar?

Just match the output voltage, amps and plug, or manually change plug yourself?

Yeah I've had a look and it doesn't look like they have anything that can do the 1.75A that this one does! (Well, they've got a 2.7A one, but it's like $60, which is in that "might as well buy a 2nd hand G27 area...)

This seems to be the best option I've found so far

If I can find something that would be quicker than 3-4 weeks I'd be much happier.

Do you reckon this would do the job? I don't know enough about electronics to be sure  :-\

Yes ,this would be OK, higher amperage is fine. Just verify it is 240 ac input, does not say in spec
but as is sold in Australia should be 240AC.

These are are a possible good replacement for G25/27 pedal pots.
