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!

If bumps affect the noise then you should be looking at loose wires and connections for the speakers and at the back of the system. Look for a bad earth or the earth wire connected up to something that is not really a good earth

Is there any good record players for under 100 pounds? (UK ONLY)


A brand that has a solid reputation but may be hard to find in your area is technics. I would think you could find one to fit in that price range. You could for sure find a Pioneer in that price range and they are not bad at all. These are vintage, not new, I am talking about but they will outperform most consumer made ones of today.

What's your problem?have a problem with security code. The stereo cannot work without the access code. Can anyone help me please? Is there a universal security code? Thank you muamar m. pontino


No there's no universal security code. First, check your car user guide and your radio user guide if you have one, see if the code has been written down in the back somewhere.

or

There are usually plenty of Auto electronic engineers / fitters who provide this service. Have a look in the phone book for one near you.

They can also be cleared on line:- http://www.radio-code.co.uk/
or :- http://www.sws-solutions.co.uk/radio_coverage.php

Finally, you could google "Car Radio Codes" see if there's a site you prefer.

Need code for ufc4220 to Philco


I am not certain that this Big Easy universal remote will control dvd players; there aren't any listed in the users manual.

Please find the users manual for your URC-2585 Big Easy here. I recommend searching for a compatible code by following these instructions.

I hope that helps.

Need security code for car stereo installed in a Toyota Previa 1995.. tried the last 4 numbers of the VIN but it doesnt work as our number pad only goes from 1 to 6... can anyone help me :(

Hi Barak, I have not seen an easy adjustment on any car stereo for converting the frequencies. The Crossfire stereo is manufactured by Becker. Try Becker of North America in Upper Saddle River NJ.
