Question about Onkyo TX-SR605 Receiver

1 Answer

Usa to uk

I have just purchased the tx605 from usa. When I changed the plug to uk the amp stand by light came on but would not switch off. I bought a 110v transformer to 240v and the same thing is happening. Does it matter that it is a 120v connection on the amp ? Can someone please advise as this cost me a lot of money, what is the solution please help.

    Thanks for the help, but the one I have doesn't have a voltage selector, I think it's north American. I purchased a trnsformer and changed the fuse inside on the circuit board, and all is good now.



    Thanks again

Hi mick

the unit has a voltage selector switch on the rear. Have you selected the 220v option. this will solve your need for a reduction transformer. If you have just gone ahead and fired it up in 110volt settings.... internal damage may have already occurred.

What is the switch set to now? Let me know

regards
Graeme

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.

UK plug in USA


You need a US to UK transformer if there is not a voltage selector switch on the unit. The motor however may not like being connected to a 60Hz electricity supply. Best contact the manufacturer.

Usually they come preloaded with some maps and you purchase additional ones. Check the manual that came with it or the box and that should tell you which ones it has. Generally speaking a basic unit bought in the UK will come with UK & Ireland preloaded, more expensive unit may have UK, Ireland & Europe and the most expensive may have all three plus USA. It's unlikely you will have 'lost' your USA map. The unit should have a 'drop down' menu which allows you to choose which map to load. Hope this helps!

No power to decks


sorry to say but you may have destroyed the units. USA uses 110volt. Uk is 240volts. There may be circuit protectors, pico fuses, internal fuses, and transformer fuses that have failed. replacing them first is the first approach to getting them going again. An adapter plug is not what you need. You require a step-down transformer to reduce the voltage supplies to 110volts. Check on the units also. There may be a voltage selector switch that you can select the right voltage for the UK. Be careful with how you go. Mains voltage kills. If you are not sure then please go to a tech and have them check the decks over for you. Good luck

Converrt USA electronic to european electronics


I have the same mixer and I moved from the States to the UK.  I just bought a really good power step-down converter (has to be step-down rather than a standard adapter, and watch the wattage of the adapter).  It worked fine.
