you need both of them, and connected the right way - + to plus for both of them, or you'll fry the writer

It could be too late if you have already crispy fried it, but you may want to try a variable power adaptor.  Take a look at places like www.quasarelectronics.com/accessories.htm

you could also try ithe writer on another system, so you are sure that it is still ok, before buying things

I would contact HP and purchase an exact replacement if I were you.
