My Newell C80 DRO just quit. Before it totally quit, it wouldn't zero. No big deal, just wrote the numbers down. Then it stopped all together. The red light on the rear stayed on so I figured it was dead. Just to be sure I checked the voltage coming out of the power supply as there were several folks talking about this being a problem with C80s. 14 volts won't cut the mustard. New supply from Newell is $120! I then checked with my computer guru and a Dell laptop supply makes 16 or 18 volts. Took it home and suprize ect.ect. ! Working like a champ. Now I'll find another one of these Dell beauties and I will never need it again!
