I was recently given an old (dates to 2000) Samsung 17" LCD monitor, model 170MP, which was missing its power supply. I ordered one on ebay (the seller was advertising the supply for the exact model I had). The power supply that I was shipped is rated at 16V. I didn’t notice when I ordered, but the monitor specifies 12V input (the monitor uses a nonstandard plug, otherwise I’d use one of the many 12V regulated power supplies I have sitting around).
The seller claims that it is safe to use this power supply, but of course it’s not his screen that will be killed if it’s not. Any ideas?
