    Just like anything else designed for 110V, using 220 instead smoked the unit. It could be as simple as the power supply or more drastic like the internal ICs that are blown. In any case, this unit will require repair at the least. It is quite possible that this will not be recoverable without extensive work and expense. This will not be covered under any warranty and would be considered customer damage. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

    In general, unless equipment is marked for use on both 110 and 220V power, you MUST only connect to the proper lines.

I suggest contacting the manufacturer as there may be an internal "reconnect" that would allow 220v operation. Good luck!

I have a Behringer xenyx 802 audio mixer and have lost the power supply. I tried to buy a replacement, but cannot find any in stock. I'm very resourceful and thought I'd make one. The spec sheet calls for...

No, you can't just jump the pins together. The power supply in the mixer needs two separate 18-volt AC inputs because it makes two supply voltages, +15 and -15 volts.

The external supply is just a potted 36-volt transformer with a center-tapped secondary. I bought an open-box Behringer (not your model, but similar) that was missing its supply, and found this transformer which works fine. (I actually did find a couple of sources for a replacement Behringer supply, but it cost more than I paid for the mixer!) Just connect the three output leads to the appropriate places on the mixer's PC board. In mine, I removed the original input connector and soldered a pigtail with a 3-pin connector from Radio Shack to the PC lands, then attached the matching plug to the transformer leads. You'll also need to provide an enclosure of some kind to prevent contact with the line voltage input to the transformer and to protect the thing if you carry it around.

I bought a mixer with this model "Behringer XENYX 1204USB 12 Ch USB Mixer". And i'm planning to have a set-up of 2 electric-acoustic guitars and 3 microphone vocals. What would be the best wattage of...

Hello Sir, Hi, the amplifier best suited for it would be a Behringer also, the EP2500 would be a match, and the eurolive B815neo speakers, but this cost a lot, any amplifier and a corresponding speaker will do. for your electric guitars or acoustics the GTX30. If you will use your 15" speakers, match it with a right amplifier, you did not mention its watts rating, If your speakers are 250 watts, then buy an amplifier slightly higher that 250 watt,

I accidentally plugged my 110V amplifier to 220V outlet.It has no power anymore.what possible solution for this. Thank you very much. Do I need to replace the rectifier in it's circuit?

Hi and welcome to the site,

Initially, on a completely dead Sony TA-N9000ES, primary suspects to be checked would be:
  • 8A F1 fuse;
  • primary winding of T1 transformer;.
  • fusible resistors R816, R817 and R818.

Good luck and thank you for asking.

Power input switch to 220V?

This is a bit of a guess, but a lot of "switching" power supplies are capable of using anything from 97 to 230 volts without using a switch to pre-set what you are going to plug them in to. That is a guess about why there is no switch, and if I'm right, it is likely that the capacitors in the power supply are...were...strong enough to survive with American voltage, but 220 is a bit too strong for their age. The repair requires parts and soldering.

I'd like to know the real answer if you eventually get it fixed. Please post it here.
