I got a used Velodyne SC1250 Amplifier from a friend in the states. Can I switch the power supply from 110 V to 230 V? A pretransformer from 230 to 110 V is to big and not a wishable solution. Are...

If its a transformer based Amplifier you can rewind the primary winding for 230Volt. But it has to be done by a transformer specialist.
All one has to do is unwind the primary on a winding machine and make a note of the number of turnings in the coil. Then wind back twice the number of turns using half the thickness of the wire that was used for 110v.
Eg: if the there were 1000 turns of 20 swg wire in the 110 circuit when you rewind you have to use 40swg wire and wind 2000 turns on the bobin.

I would contact Sherwood as Transformers are deemed to be safety components and should be replaced with excat parts or those recommended by the maker.

I have a Peavy "Classic 30 BT" guitar amplifier that stopped working. When the power switch is ON, the pilot light glows but the vacuum tubes don't even glow. Using a volt meter, I found that 120 Vac is at...

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

I have to agree with you that that component is a thermal fuse. In my country, they are readily available in most electronics/hobbyist parts store. These components are also used for small motors and therefore would also be available in some (but not all) kitchen appliances parts stores. A temporary workaround is to install an ordinary fast blow fuse.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Samson Servo 170 protection circuit problem!

my friend resistors and diodes don't just go off your circuit without a real problem. those parts gave up because of shortage on your power section, i suggest that you check your power transistros first along with the diodes and resistors.

noisy transformers... hmmmm why is that making sound? the solution there is to dip the power transformer to a thick shellac varnish let it there for let's say an hour then let it dry for a day. then place it back in your unit and see if still sounds

Make shure with an ohm meter that the primary and secondary windings have very little resistance on the main trasformer,then check voltage in trasformer and out from transformer...BIGRED
