      It is probably not putting out the proper voltage under load. Putting a meter on it with no load it may appear to be within spec but once you load it, it drops out of spec and can't supply proper voltage and current.

      Sounds like your adapter went slightly out of tolerance for voltage.

What's up with the Illegal Voltage message?  Thanks in advance for all input.
