Question about Amplifiers & Preamps
8 years ago I bought a Marshall amplifier in Sao paulo, Brazil, and used only for a few days. I packed it in its plastic bag in my home. Sao Paulo mains is 110V. The vendor made it ready for the town customers.
Now I am back to my city home which mains is 220. I don't remember using transformer 8 years ago. The first thing I did was to plug into the mains. I heard a faint noise but no more afterwards. The amp sounds dead as there is no static when the classical guitar cord connected to the am is swung.
I am wondering if I damaged the amplifier or just a part of it. That is, I wonder if there is a fuse to protect for such idiot action. Apparently there is no visible apparatus to suggest changeable fuse.
I don't want to send to some adventurer who claims to fix and make it worse. On the back of the amp says not to open it. What can I do?
