Question about Technics SA-DX930 Receiver

1 Answer

Plugged into 220V outlet by mistake! Help!

Hey. I moved overseas recently, and took my DX930 with me. Of course I bought a 220V to 110V converter and was using that to power up the receiver and it's been working fine. However, yesterday, by mistake, somebody plugged it in directly to a 220V outlet, and now it's not working. No sign of life whatsoever. I hope it has some kind of protection against this but I am not sure (fuses, etc). Any suggestions ? Thanks...

I don't know for sure, but I suspect that if you open it up, there should be a fuse near the power supply portion of the unit. It may have taken the hit for you and can perhaps be replaced easily. (As a disclaimer... be sure the unit is not plugged in when you open the case! And only replace the fuse with another of equal rating.) If it's not a fuse, then you probably smoked the primary winding of the transformer. If it got past that, you may have popped the rectifier and/or capacitor(s) in the power supply.

If I would buy a Onkyo TX-NR616 in the US (110V) and take it Europe (220V), wouldn't it be a solution to simply exchange the power transformer for a 220v one?

An stepdown transformer is needed should you buy in US and use it Europe

However, if your on a technical side , trace the primary windings , and check

There are European versions which are already 220V, no need to convert.

If i accidentally plugged it to 220 volts and it was burned in a seconds can it be repaired?

Good day sir/maam, Yes it can be repaired. if you have plugged in a 110v device to a 220v ac mains, chances are its toast, your onkyo's power transformer is burnt, the repair is replacing the toast power amplifier, or we usually rewind the power transformer specification, after the replacement, you may need to check the power supply section for shorted power regulators, and rectifiers. If you choose to send it for repairs, the service is usually reasonable.

Hi, I'd like to use my Denon at overseas where

There should be a switch that you could set to the various voltages. Normally a round switch in one of the corners on the rear panel that you can turn with a flat screwdriver

Wrong valtage

I am not sure what your question is but if you purchased the U.S. version and it is 110V and you are somewhere where there are 220V, you will need to purchase a stepdown transformer for it to work properly.
