    I had another Receiver power supply fail on me. Can't really complain - it had lasted over ten years. The Logitech store doesn't sell replacement power supplies for the Receiver anymore. Finding a replacement power supply with the correct barrel size (3.5/1.05mm) continues to be an issue.

    I found a new solution that should last me a long time. Adafruit sells a 30 Piece 5.5 / 2.1mm to DC Barrel Jack Adapter Kit for about $11 + shipping. One of the adapters converts the 5.5mm/2.1mm barrel (which is a standard size) to 3.5mm/1.1mm. That's close enough to the required barrel specs (3.5/1.05mm) and fits just fine. That just leaves buying the power supply itself, which must provide 9V and 5W. Digi-Key sells several, including the ‚ÄčVEL05US090-US-JA, for about $7 each plus shipping. That power supply has the standard 5.5mm/2.1mm barrel. Plug it into the Adafruit 3.5/1.1mm converter, and you're back in business. It's a bit wasteful, though, because the Adafruit kit has 29 other adapters of different sizes that you may not be able to use.

    Anyway, this resolved my issue, and presumably if/when the current power supply fails, I can reuse the Adafruit barrel adapter.

    Best regards.

    I bought the one that w3w recommended (cheap) and agree, one of the plugs worked out of the box. And you get a whole lot of other plugs you may (or may not) need some day!

    Either way, power supply for the receiver or charging cradle, make sure to note polarity. SB's are center positive, but there are power supplies out there (telecom? Musician? can't remember) that are center negative. If the old one is working, but not well enough, test polarity before, say cutting the cradle cable.

    I must have been lucky! One of the several plugs that came with my adjustable power supply fit my receiver perfectly. No need to cut the connector off the original PS.

    If the PS ever fails on one of my controller cradles I will cut that line and make it a A type USB connection and use a standard 5V wall wart.

    Your dead PS should have the voltage printed on it if you want to verify. The receiver takes 9V. Mine isn't the brand I linked, but I just set it to 9V, picked the adapter that fit the receiver and my receiver has been happy ever since.

    Logitech Order Cancelled

    I have two receivers. The power adapter died on one of them after a power failure (I was able to verify by swapping the adapters between my two receivers).

    Ordered one on the Logitech website at the link https://support.logi.com/hc/en-us/ar...zebox-Receiver

    But, alas, after about a week, they cancelled my order stating the item was no longer available. But they haven't taken that page down.

    So, I'll try the other suggestions. The Belker one looks promising.

    I got one something like this for my failed receiver power adapter;

    Set it to 9V and picked the tip that fit my receiver. Been running for at least 3 years now just fine.

    EDIT - PS: It always helps to have your location in your profile so we can point you to the closest item to you.

    DO NOT order this one: Does not fit at all: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ZJA1RX0...roduct_details
    Thanks, saved me from ordering that other one that specifically claims to be compatible but isn't.

    If you don't mind splicing wires, something like this with the barrel plug replaced with the original from the PSU would let you use a USB-C PD source (that can supply the minimum current needed at 9v) and those will be easier to find going forward

    I have 3 duets and 2 of the PSA05R-090 power supplies failed ... You can still measure 9V but the receiver does not start up anymore. As of this writing Logitech still has the power supplies in stock (and yes the package seems to look very old). They work with the existing power plug plate from the broken power supply so you don't need to buy that.

    The alternative would be to buy a cheap 9V (0.56A or larger) DC power supply and make your own adapter by buying a female barrel connecter to match the new power supply male barrel connector (e.g. 5.5x2.1mm or 5.5x2.5mm) and solder that to the cable you cut off the old connector from you broken PS.

    What to do? As Fred pointed out, the Logitech online store continues to sell Receiver replacement power supplies. http://support.logitech.com/en_us/pr...zebox-receiver. I ordered one and it unsurprisingly has the correct sized barrel connector. Logitech charges $15 for it, which seems high except that you will have trouble finding it elsewhere. Mine arrived in a sealed cushioned packing envelope that looked like it had been sitting in a warehouse for ten years - which it probably had. But the power supply worked fine and my Receiver is back up and running.

    So, if the Logitech online store is available in your country, order the replacement from there. If not, then before ordering from Amazon or eBay, ask the seller to confirm that the barrel connector is 3.5mm OD, 1.05mm ID. If the seller cannot confirm that, then it will not work.

    Cheers.

    A couple of weeks ago my ever-faithful Duet was nonresponsive when I went to fire up my music. After investigating, the LED button on the front was blinking red. We had a brief power outage the day before, so I did as I've done many times over the years: I unplugged and replugged the PSU to force a reboot. Only this time, I had a solid red LED which then cycled through yellow and then purple (which isn't a defined color and seemed "off"). The button on the front was nonresponsive, too. I couldn't connect to the Duet with either the original controller or iPeng either. After trying to reboot it a few more times, the LED stopped showing any signs of life.

    Glad I found this thread (and remembered my Logitech forum login). Even though my symptoms didn't quite match anything I was reading online, it seemed to have all the hallmarks of a failing/failed PSU. So I checked Logitech's site (thanks for the link) and discovered -- after nearly 5 years -- that they indeed are still selling replacement PSUs for $15 and have stock! After receiving the new PSU and swapping out the US prong plate, my Squeezebox was back up and running in about six seconds.

    So this is to 1) say thanks, 2) add my troubleshooting details for historical record, 3) confirm that as of December 2021 Logitech still sells the replacement PSU in the US, and 4) to confirm that, indeed, the paper pouch containing the PSU does appear to be new-old-stock that's been sitting on a warehouse shelf for 10+ years (it was really yellowed around the edges and the tape flap had seriously degraded)!
