Looking to buy a new or original power supply for my Panasonic FS-A1 MSX2 computer. I've read all the threads on the rarity of these but before I spend time making one, I thought I'd see if any one had one available for purchase.

Thanks,
ISB

Hi!

I'm sorry, as i don't have any compatible power supply for this model, but as i have an MSX2HBF1-MKII which uses a similar power supply (3 pins with dc9v and ac18v) i finally decided on making a small mod to use this power supply:

https://es.aliexpress.com/item/Env-o-gratis-35-w-5-v-12-v-12...

It's a power supply with dc +5v, +12 and -12v which is enough to power up the msx (and more :-) ).
I'm going to use an usb A/B cable to connect the power supply to the msx, as i am going to replace the msx power socket with an usb B female socket, and use a usb A female socket in a custom box for the power supply. This way i can use any usb A/B cable to connect the power supply to the msx without changing the msx aspect.

Inside the msx the usb B socket will drive the +5, +12 and -12 to the corresponding points after the stepdown from original DC9v and AC18v

I'll post a message with photos when i manage to finish this mod :-)

Very cool, looking forward to your reply. I was able to find one of these compatible power supplies on a Japanese ebay type site. Just waiting now for it be shipped my way.
