Always, check too see that any attached adapter is a correct match.

Match volts & amps (and brand) exactly whenever possible. Voltage must match exactly. Higher amperage is usually permissible, except on "regulated" devices. Do NOT use a power adapter with less amps than the device requires, you will get a false negative on the device, either because it will not turn on at all, or because it will but not work properly.
