My parents have a reasonably ancient Visioneer 4400 USB scanner. The power supply has died. (I figured this out because I have a hard drive enclosure with a very similar power supply, and it worked.)

Where can I find a replacement one?

The start of the 1st sentence read like the ad. :-) – Frank V Apr 5 '10 at 16:24
Yeah, it felt a bit odd writing it. I’d Googled a bit, and I found a similar question on another (much inferior) Q&A site. I answered it there, but I figured if I put the info on Super User as well, there’d be more chance of other people finding it in the future. – Paul D. Waite Apr 5 '10 at 22:07

The eBay thing didn’t actually work out — the item got lost in the post, and the chap was out of stock after that.

I found one at Blackmore though:

I’ve ordered it; I’ll update here if/when it turns up.
