CDJ bought from USA to use in the Uk

Well Ive been using a converter for it and its been working fine, but I did notice some over heating at the back, went to bed came in the next day and it had stopped working. The converter ive been using is a 1875w conair and I think this is the reason its stopped working. Any help than can be offered would be greatly appreciated and if I can fix it, need to go and get it fixed, how much etc!!! Thanks

I understand you are only trying to fix only the converter. Is this for going from 220/50 to 120/60? If so there are a lot of non-servicable parts inside that converter. It'll be cheaper to replace it than repair it unless you have an electronics background and the test equipment. There is one other possibility. Check for fuses inside the converter. !. Unplug the unit let sit for a few minutes to let any possible electrical current drain off. (some have "storage capicators" that will knock you on your butt and I'm not sure about this one) 2. You may have to open the case and look for fuses inside. You have to take the fuses out of the holders to check unless you have an "ohm meter" and know how to use one. 3. If they are clear galss look for the filament inside to be intact. If ceramic (usually white color instead of glass) you need an "ohm meter". The fuses are replaceable if they are "not "soldered in". If they are soldered in you might not be able to buy the correct fuse and that means buy you need a new converter. Hope that solves your problem.

I have bought a Braun epilator 7 , Braun type:5377 , in USA and have purchased the charger in the UK which is 100-240 v , do I still need to get a voltage converter to be able to use it in the UK ?

If the charger is 100 to 240VAC, it should work. USA use 110 volt so the charger should be OK with 240. The UK charger will probably have a UK 3 pin plug on it. If you use it in the US, you will have to change the plug again or buy an international adaptor which can be adapted to fit most outlets anywhere in the World.

Power problem, CDJ wont turn on propperly as it is from the US and i live in Birmingham UK

The step down adapter should work fine as long it supplies the voltage and any other ratings shown on the turntable power supply indication pannel. However the problem might already have happened. If the fuses were before the power entered the mains transformer of the unit, then if they were set to blow above the USA voltage then things could be OK. However if the the fuses were in the secondary output from the transformer then the mains will have caused possible damage to the transformer. Maybe even elsewhere.

Hello i need some help,i have pioneer 800 mk2 cdj i buy from usa but im live in london so difirent pawer supply here i bought the converter but try connect and its not showing nothing maybe the problem...

You can have a fuse problem only in you plug it diectly to 240V, the UK voltage. Check that the converter is a step down transformer, 240 to 110 volts. The system should work with 110Volts. If everything is ok, then you blew the system´s powersupply with the 240Volts. that is difficult to solve.

Yes, fuse may be blown, first check out the fuse of CDJ,
if it does not work. Install a physical 120v American transformer
also change the switch of 240v to 120v from back of CDJ

I bought an American CDJ-1000 Mk 3. Does anyone know how difficult / expensive it is to change the power supply to 240V (UK). Cheers, Bob

Not difficult, all you need is step down adaptor. it will convert the voltage to 240 voltage. Dont try it directly with Uk voltage because its might cause damage to your decks. Good luck ! djflexxy

CDJ 200 without electricity fuse blow off?

no you cannot do that , the device works on 120v( 117v around me) , but it cannot be changed like that , you would need a trans former that breaks down the voltage to 120v
changing the fuse will not change the circuitry in the device

Cect p168 phone

Unfortunately you can't use this phone in the UK from what I've heard it's only Valid in China, Japan, USA and Canada, I myself have one. But it might just be your connection. Try buying a SIM card online from At&t and it might work, just buy a USA one..

yeah you definitly need to have a uk to usa power converter. you guys run on 220V which would create way more current then needed which is why the power supply blew. I hope you didnt fry any internal parts in the 360. You need to get a power converter that gives you 120V.

USA to UK CDJ800

Unless you want to spend some serious money, a multi unit step down will run you about US$300 or so. If you buy 2 or 3 individual converter's, your looking at about US$40-70 for a good quality model. Besides, it's better this way. If one of the converter shorts, only 1 unit will be affected.
