I have had the power supply checked and it only blowed the fuse in my plug the unit is ok. Thank god we have fuses in our plugs in the UK, I have had a variac to bring 240v down to 120v and the power supply is working on my bench at work, I am going to try and change the taps at lunch and tap in the the centre pin so i can run 240v straight through. I had no idea the power supply was external. Why is this the case?

Well it may be compatible but it should hav a switch on the rear side to choose either 110 or 240V.Check for this but you probably burned primary side of main transformator and you'll have to replace it or to find somebody who is able to fix it

There are only two answers to this. One is the microphone plug damaged the headphone socket. Easy and cheap to fix. Two that the plug shorted out the main power amp. Sadly though easy to fix it won't be cheap as that is what does all the work.

You can get a 3 pin plug from many shops, but make sure the voltage rating on the back says it will work on 240V if using in britain as America use 115v electriccal system.

Rowe Ami R-80 imperial jukebox

Hello Andy,

Yes I know the 1976 Rowe Ami R-80 jukebox very well as well as most of the other Rowe Ami jukeboxes.

The turntable motor and the lighting work off of the 110 volt output from the power supply.
The other power voltages are connected to the power supply via the molex plug.

Pin 1 30VDC white/red
Pin 2 30VAC yellow/black
Pin 3 Common black
Pin 4 Ground gren/yellow
Pin 5 No connection
Pin 6 Common black

All the voltages are protected by circuit breakers.

I assume that you may be in the UK if this is the case here are my contact details.

When i plug in my sound docking station it makes a knocking sound

The only 2 possibilities are: 1. The power supply IS bad and needs to be replaced. (not the cord, but the supply itself) 2. The 4-prong power supply plug at the back of the SoundDock isn't connecting properly (try flipping it upside down, or making sure "DC power" is written on top if it's a later version.)
If this is the SoundDock Portable or SoundDock II, then the problem is definitely the supply.
Bose can send a new supply for $50+, or repair a non-warrantied SoundDock for $99.

JBL on stage II speaker doesn't work

If your 120v unit is not marked for use with 220-240v and you plugged it into such a socket (even once), you probably fried the AC adapter and will need to get a replacement.

Can not turn power on

You didn't mention why it was disconnected and this may have only showed a failure that was going to happen anyway. There may be an internal fuse that was just tired but it will require some disassembly if there is no back-panel fuse holder evident.
Most all consumer electronics use a more efficient type of power supply called 'switched mode' (SMPS) and they are fussy by nature. In your case, the supply was probably close to failure and it was only working because it was plugged into AC but now unable to restart.
You might be able to jog it into working again by repeatedly plugging and unplugging the AC and watching for any signs of life. If an LED somewhere on the front panel turns on, leave it plugged in then. This may not work but won't hurt anything either.
