Any chance you can tell me what power supply you ordered. I just got a Car Marty and need a power supply.

I am finding a ton of Info I will post it all when I am done compiling.|

What I found so far...

Power Adapter must be 12V must have at least 1.5A but can go as high as 5A. I am going to use a 12v 3A adapter.
The Center post must be Negative.
Image
Tip size should be (5.5*2.5*12 mm)

I also found the Pin out for the connector..

Image

SO now I just wait for everything to arrive.

Sorry for a bit of self promotion, but the pasted details above came from my website, re-enthused - so if you want to see the information (and more) in it's original form please go here https://re-enthused.com/manufacturer/fujitsu/car-marty-accessory-port-pinout/.

I also have an STL file so you can 3D print a connector.

Again, sorry for the self promotion

Thanks

I think in the context of this topic, and the fact that you've included a link back to the source data which was originally uncredited, that this particular brand of self-promotion is A-OK! Also, I'm really glad you're putting this kind of data on-line. Might not be useful to most folks, but if you're someone who needs it, where else are you going to get it?

Wow, thanks John!
This kind of detailed documentation on old niche hardware is essential to owners, and also very entertaining to me, even if I only wish I had said hardware.
