Tip & How-To about Televison & Video


Here is a quick and simple way to code your wall warts (transformer power supplies for drills,camera, electronic items etc). I have many wall wart style chargers and sometimes I forget which item they go too. I have lots of guitar effects, bass effects, camera, camcorder and much more. Now after I have figured out what they go to, I buy multi-colored tie wraps and put one color on the wall wart and the same color on the tool or device it goes too. If I run out of colors I buy colored tape and do the same thing and you can resuse colors that way. It has helped me eliminate a frustrating situation.

the dual charger does not charge the batteries

Simply fix the wall wart. AE6JI 704-745-2067 Extra Class FCC VEC +45 years practical electronics.

There is a fine wire, (under the paper wrapping) or on the transformer, re-close, and it will work 99% of the time.

WARNING random wall warts WILL vary, up to 200% of what their rating label states!

Next time do not have the wall wart plugged into the Wall AC, until AFTER you plug it into the radio.

doesn't work no power

Is it a wall wart transformer? By this I mean an external power supply that plugs into the amplified speakers. If so, you might just replace the power supply.

external power problem

It's actually the opposite. 1/8" jacks are almost always positive tip. I think you are best off using a 9VDC supply. If the voltage is not staying constant at 9 volts it could certainly do damage. If the supply you used was a negative tip positive sleeve you may have burned out a component or two...and more voltage than recommended could have done some other bad things. If it does not work with a 9VDC supply with the correct polarity you can fix it yourself if you have electronic experience. You could also send it to me and I'll fix it at a reasonable rate.
