    What to do with a 'spare' wireless printer?

    Long story short, after having a faulty HP 3050 I now have another, spare working printer but no PSU for it, you don't seem to be able to buy them so my next thought was, of course, "what fun can I have taking it apart & messing with it?"

    So, does anyone have any suggestions? I doubt it but it might be worth a shot!

    £15 though, and...uummm...I want to take it apart!

    Oh, and HP support gets a big thumbs up from me, very impressed with their turnaround time & service Same can't be said for Tesco who I bought it from who didn't want to know.

    Any old generic brick of the same voltage rating and power should do the trick. Doesn't have to be HP.

    Does it work? I wouldn't mind taking it off your hands as I could use it for UNI
