    I bought very old used overhead mobile video.
    I intend to use inside the house with AC and mobile video has 12V with
    two wires.
    I have universal AC-DC adaptor with 1.5 - 12V and wonder I can cut the
    end and attach the wires from mobile video and use it?
    Is it possible?
  2. First determne if it needs 12 volts AC or DC. Next detemine how much
    current it draws. If it's DC note the polarity. If universal power supply
    matches, you can wire it up.

    you most likely need a larger adapter in current rating.
    don't think your adapter will deliver enough current for the
    i can only suspect that you have one of those little mini
    universal types? if so, they normally do not have that much
    current rating.
    if you have an amp meter you may want to try connect to a
    12 volt battery and measure the load.
