Transformer main coil shorted.

What is the voltage output for this Transformer they are 4 different variants 6v 9v 12v and 15v. Ive looked at the service manual on line and it only tells you the input voltage ..being 240v, not what comes after the transformer.

Re: Transformer main coil shorted.

You have to do the math according to the circuit path, and all components in between. Break out the voltage meter.

Do I need to replace the battery and buy a converter, or buy a completely new one? Is it completely broken?

Normal the high input voltage should influence the output voltage. The120V AC to 9V DC will be blown, but with a bit of luck, your Crosley cruiser will be ok. Only if the power convertor is poorly made, the high voltage could have gone through the convertor and then it damaged everything in the cruiser. Try a new 9V power supply and see what it does.

I need to know the outpout voltage of my numark ttusb power transformer

the usb output is off course 5 volt. Your phono output you can measure with a reasonable meter, depends on the needle and your line output is something you really need to know , since it's a constant , just like usb which has four leads. Two with a constant voltage 0-5. and the other two are for data transport.

I need to know the secondary output voltage of power transformer.

If the primary of the transformer has failed it doesn't follow that the main power supply parts are also faulty. However since the transformer is a safety part you need to replace it with the same thing.

However it seems from this website that transformers are not expensive compared to a new deck, so a look around here might solve the problem.

I have a crosley CR8005A and i conected in my country (CHILE, SOUTH AMERICA) and here we have 220 v. can it fix it?

You need a step-down voltage converter to convert 220V to 120V.

Amazon has them. One example - or

Look for words like "voltage converter", "voltage transformer" and "travel"

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.

Crosley CR24 transformer rating

As transformers are Safety parts they must be replaced by the excat same part or one that is approved by Crosley. You should not attemp to use another transformer unless it's approved by Crosley. Otherwise it could become a fire hazard.

My technics 1200 mk5 is blowing a 125V 250 mA fuse on the board just after the transformer

There must be a shorted power transistor in the power supply area. Check the voltage output of the transistor to determine which part is having a short circuit.

Philco american stereo system

Well since we in the UK use 240 volts and over the sea they use 120 volts, it should be no surprise why it no longer works. What the effect is couldn't be any clearer. Since most units only use around 30 volts to work, a transformer is employed to knock the mains down. These have what is known as a primary winding, this takes the mains, however the coil of wire will be designed for the mains it is going to be connected with. If it is connected to one greater they tend to burnt out. Often transformers have fuses built. However they don't tend to be replacable. So you will almost for certain need a new transformer. If you are really lucky a fuse might have been employed in the power leads going to the transformer. As long as it wasn't rated a 250 volts it could have gone and transformer is OK. BUT I WOULDN'T BANK ON IT!
Now you have an option, you could replace the transformer with the same type (which you would need to do for safety reasons) or you can get a very experinced technical person, to replace the transformer with one that will meet safety standards and have a 250 volt primary, for the UK. You can even get them that have two mains, one 250 and one 120!
If you just go for the replacement then you will still need a mains adapter.
PS There might be other damage, such as the mains switch!

I pluged my american stanton T60X (125V) to 225V. Any solution?

if you can find a fuse or reset switch, replace/reset that first. look around where the power cable enters the device.

if it has no fuse, you've probably cooked the transformer which converts outlet voltage (mains) to whatever the voltage the device is designed to run on. if that's the case, then you'll just need to swap in a transformer that matches the requirements of the deck to the output voltage of whatever country you want to use it in.

if this sounds too daunting and you're not confident with taking electrical stuff apart, go to a shop and get them to sort it for you.

long and short, don't ditch your deck just yet, Chet.

No signal from the Left output + Tinny sound

1. Assuming there is no problem with your amplifier of input cable, the headshell/tone-arm needs rewiring. This is very thin flexible wire and not easy to do, but can be done if you are careful.

2. Turntables require a special input on your amplifier which has a frequency response that is suitable for them. If you connect a turntable to an ordinary input, it will sound tinny. If you don't have a turntable input (known as a phono input [from phonograph]) you will need to use a preamplifier with your turntable.
