    so i bought this retron 2 at a thrift store near my house they guy said he tested it so i bought it. I got home at it turns out it didnt have the the power supply that plugs into the DC port. Does the retron 2 work with off brand power adapters

    just buy one that matches the output of the console and you will be fine

    [​IMG] you cant just cram an adapter in there you will fry it the console says very clearly dc12v 2000mA for example thats what you need a 12v adapter if thats the case

    i think you are misunderstanding dude the connector doesnt need to fit it has to supply the right amount of power. i could plug a playstation power cord into my laptop but it wont work because of OUTPUT
