Power surge damage, 120 volt 60 hz actual Model mvd1402

I'm hoping this is a fused product, my wife plugged power cord into 220 volt outlet, she said it went smap, crackle, and pop keyword doesn't work anymore. Was I lucky and only blew a fuse, or I need to gut the console, fill it with dirt, plant a tree and watch it grow for the rest of my Philippine Vacation. If I made you laugh send me an e-mail anyway.

Hi, i'm a Pinoy living in Switzerland. I used to fix several TV's with that problem (TV from US-110volts and from Japan-100volts) mistakenly plugged without the transformer. 95% of the units will have damaged voltage regulator IC or Power transistor even if the fuse will blow. Normally the fuse is not fast enough to protect the power semiconductors. All TV's have fuse. An honest technician will not charge you much, A power transistor used in the voltage regulator will not cost you more than P500. I guess you are from US, judging from the TV that you are describing, I will soon leave Switzerland and move to US this year.

Power connector pinout for CT-13R50 television


Directly from the user manual, Page 5 under "AC/DC Power Sources":
DC Models ONLY
"This TV model operates on both standard household current (120 volt, 60 Hz AC) and car battery (12 volt negative ground DC) through the cigarette lighter. An AC power cord and a car cigarette lighter adapter cord are supplied.
Household Installation
Insert the AC power cord into the connection on the rear of the TV. Connect the two pronged plug into an AC outlet (120 volt, 60Hz). If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the wall outlet, try reversing it. If the plug does not fit, contact an electrician. Do not force the plug or defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug."

The manual goes on to describe the vehicle installation which is identical to the household, with the only difference being the car plug goes into the DC side of the power connections at the back.

There are several kinds of power cord available for older TV models. Unfortunately, after an exhaustive search, I was not able to locate a photo of the back of that model television.
However, I have included three of the typical US power connectors found on a great many devices and in the majority of cases, one of these cords will likely be the one you need. They can be found at most local stores such as Wal-Mart, or can be ordered online from Amazon. Also, the cored generally only fit in one direction, especially if the cord happens to be polarized (thin blade and wide blade).

I hope this helps!

What type of AC adapter does the T790 ellictical machine needs also the voltage and polarity


Dear Sir:

Please read carefully:
Your treadmill, like any other type of sophisticated
electronic equipment, can be seriously damaged by
sudden voltage changes in your homeõs power.
Voltage surges, spikes, and noise interference can
result from weather conditions or from other appliances
being turned on or off. To decrease the possibility of
your treadmill being damaged, always use a surge
suppressor with your treadmill (see drawing 1 at
the right).
To purchase a surge suppressor, see your local
PROFORM dealer or call toll-free 1-800-366-7278
and order part number 14657. Use only a single-outlet
surge suppressor that is UL 1449 listed as a transient
voltage surge suppressor (TVSS). The surge
suppressor must have a UL suppressed voltage rating
of 400 volts or less and a minimum surge dissipation of
450 joules. The surge suppressor must be electrically
rated for 120 volts AC and 15 amps.
This product must be grounded. If it should malfunction
or break down, grounding provides a path of least
resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric
shock. This product is equipped with a cord having
an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding
plug. Plug the power cord into a surge suppressor,
and plug the surge suppressor into an appropriate
outlet that is properly installed and grounded in
accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

If you need Extra help please reach me inmediately.

sincerely. blessing.

I'm going to Europe and wanted to know how to convert electricity so when I plug in my computer it won't fry the computer


This is a copy from the Radio Shack site. The quick answer is go to pretty much any electronic store or most travel stores and buy a Foreign Power Converter.

AC to AC Power Conversion (Foreign Voltage Converters) Purpose of Converter / Explanation of Operation AC-to-AC voltage converters, or travel converters, are designed to convert the voltage used in a foreign country to the voltage required for a particular AC device. These converters are either transformer-based or solid-state, and this affects what type of devices the converter can power. In addition to converting the power, you will often need to also use a plug adapter. Plug adapters are generally either built into the converter, or provided as separate parts. They are also sold separately, for use with multi-voltage devices that are designed to convert the power internally.
Selecting a Converter These are one of the more confusing of the power conversion devices. Because of the range of voltages, plug types and converter designs, many customers find that they need help determining exactly which converter they need. To aid in that process, we have put together a short worksheet to help you determine what type of converter is needed: We recommend that you print out thi sheet when taking a number of different devices to a different country.
First, you should determine the electrical requirements (voltage, frequency, and wattage) for the device(s) you will be taking with you. This information is generally on a label or embossed into the back or bottom of the device. Make a note of the voltage(s), frequency or frequencies, and the wattage indicated for each device.
  • The voltage may be given as either V, VAC or VDC. The standard voltage for US devices is 120 V. Devices that are designed to operate using different input voltages will be labeled, such as 110/120 V, or 120/240 V.
  • The frequency will be given in Hz. The standard frequency for US devices is 60 Hz. Devices that are designed to operate using different frequencies will be labeled, such as 50/60 Hz.
  • The wattage will be given in either watts (W) or volt-amps (VA). If the wattage is not listed on the device, you will need to contact the device's manufacturer for this information. If you have the maximum current consumption (in amps), you can calculate the wattage by multiplying the voltage (V) times the current consumption (A).
Next, you will need to know the electrical requirements for the country you are going to be visiting.
Next, you will need to compare your equipment requirements to the country's information to determine whether you need a Step-up or Step-down Voltage converter.
  • If your equipment accepts the voltage and frequency provided by the country you will be visiting, then only a Plug Adapter will be required.
  • If the voltage of the target country is higher than the voltage required by your device(s), you will need a Step-Up Voltage Converter.
  • If the voltage of the target country is lower than the voltage required by your device(s), you will need a Step-Down Voltage Converter.
Once you know what type of converter or adapter you need, consult our list of travel power conversion products to find one that meets your requirements.
Cautions
  • The AC outlet in many foreign bathrooms is for low-wattage devices only. To avoid damage to your converter and/or attached device, check with your host or hotel before powering a high-wattage device (such as a hair dryer) from this plug.
  • Do not use a voltage converter with electronic devices such as televisions, VCR's and computers unless the device indicates that it can handle both 50 Hz and 60 Hz.
  • Do not use heating appliances, such as hair dryers, irons and coffee-makers, on a transformer-based voltage converter.
  • Do not use non-heating electronic devices, such as calculators, electric razors and portable audio players, on solid-state voltage converter.
  • Do not use 110-120 VAC Surge protectors or Uninterruptible Power supplies on a 220-240 VAC system. Even with a step-down power converter, damage could occur as the two power systems are wired differently.

SR573... Does it support NTSC/PAL?.


There's no mention of either NTSC or PAL in any spec sheet.

This link leads to Onkyo and the rear view of the amp lacks the voltage selector.

http://www.onkyousa.com/model.cfm?m=TX-SR573&class=Receiver&p=s

The manual for the similar model SR575 says the North American model does not have the voltage selector. Too bad. Under the general specs for the variants of this family of receivers they list the following power specs. I have no idea where you have to go to buy one from the "Others" group.

Power Supply North American: AC 120 V, 60 Hz
European: AC 230 V, 50 Hz
Others: AC 120/220-240 V, 50/60 Hz
AC 220 V, 50/60 Hz

Some aliases for the SR575=
TX-SR505
TX-SR505E
TX-SR8550
TX-SR575

You could do what I did over 30 years ago. Join the Army, go overseas and buy one in the PX. Every HiFi product we bought in the PX in the 70's had the dual voltage feature.

Can I use a Powerline product on a European 220 volt electrical system?


No. Currently we are only offering Powerline products for the North American market, with support for standard 120 Volt AC, 60 Hz electrical outlets. Simply plugging a 120 > 220 volt adapter will not work, as the transformer will block the broadband signal, not to mention that the increased voltage that is likely to leak through a standard adapter could destroy the product.

Can I Use My Camcorder In Another Country?


Each country or region has its own electric and color systems. Before using your camcorder abroad, check the following items: Power sources * You can use your camcorder in any country or area with the supplied AC Power Adapter within 100V to 240V, 50/60 Hz. * Use a commercially available AC plug Adapter, if necessary, depending on the design of the local wall outlet. **Note** The United States and most of the Western hemisphere use electrical systems operating at 110-120 volts. Almost every other country uses 220-240 volts as a standard. Provided that your power adapter displays the following information, (100V~240V) 50/60 hz - it can be used overseas. **You may require an adapter to change the plug shape to match the outlet. Color system You can view your recording in the viewfinder. However, to view it on a television or copy it to a videocassette recorder, the television or VCR must be NTSC compatible and have the appropriate audio/video jacks. Otherwise, you may need to use a transcoder. Note: You can make recordings with your camcorder and view pictures on the LCD from anywhere in the world.
