The Fender Passport P-250 has a switch on the back of the unit that allow the unit to work with 120V or 240V systems. If you connect the unit to 240V when in the 120V setting, the fuse should blow without damage to the power supply. This is not 100% safe, but the intended design uses a spark gap device to absorb the overload for this condition with the intent to blow the fuse.

If you replace the fuse, and it blows again or does not work, you will need to replace the power supply module which is a custom part specific to the P-250.

I hope this information helps with your repair.

Hi,


You have to replace the power supply with exact voltage and amperage.
Be careful next time.

DRYER: Switched a 3 prong to a 4 prong and heard a pop when pluged into the wall. I then noticed my hot and cold wire were mixed up. Fixed the switch and nothing works now. Breaker switched off and on many...


Hi - why did you convert the plugs in the first place? In elctricity theres no such term as hot or cold wires. Besides what do you mean by a 4 prong or 3 prong? electrical equipments are designed to operate on 3 pin single phase power or a 4/5 pin three phase systems.

the voltages in both systems are totally different pending on where you live - 110v or 230v for a single phase or 230v - 415v three phases.

A single phase cannot be converted to the three phases or vise versa unless you use sophisticated electronics to do so. Unless you know what you are doing you can modify the 3 pin to opertae safely on a 4 pin by choosing the correct conductors in relation to the three wire conductors in the 3 pin plug.

The sad story for you is this will be a rather expensive lesson - I wont be surprise if the extra voltage has zapped some of the components in your machine.

THE BEST ADVICE I CAN OFFER YOU RIGHT NOW IS TO EMPLOY THE SERVICES OF SOMEBODY TO HELP YOU OUT - ALTERNATIVELY AS YOU STATED "BUYING AN OVER $1000 DRYER"

If the power supply has a voltage selection switch, set this switch to match the voltage in your area


Hi,

230v for the UK and 110v for the USA.

If you live in a different country then you can Google the required voltage for your country

MMP2 seems to have no voltage selector. Manual states power as 230, 240, 110v. I am reluctant to plug my US 110v unit into UK 230v mains. Would appreciate any info?


Check the manual..It's on the Roland site

In that unit , it's most likely an auto-switching power supply ie; universal 105 - 230 volts AC 50-60 hz

What do I need to use my Touchsmart tx2 in France. Do I need an adapter or transformer or both


You live in the US, right?
First check the voltage rating on your power supply / charger's primary voltage range. If it states around 110V only, then you need a transformer from 230V to 110V with an euopean plug. Make sure it's a real transformer (rather heavy, rated at ~100VA will be OK), and not a lightweight high-power adaptor, used for lamps, pressing irons, heaters and similar appliances.
If on your charger it states something like "90-240V", then it will cope with the standard european voltage of 230V, and the only thing you need is a travel adapter that will have an european plug on one side and an american socket on the other.

You are going to have to replace it....obviously. Here are some places that popped as having the supply you need. I have never used any of them personally.

Wireing this type AC with the wrong voltage, will damage more than the circuit boards. I think the installer wil need to be responsible for the damage he created. The factory will also try to get out of the replacement because of the installers lack of know how.
