Question about Samsung DVD-V4600 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

Blown fuse hello ,I have a problem with my samsung tv, the fuse got blown due to plugging the 110 voltage tv into a 100 watt transformer to upgrade to 220 volts as i am in a 220 volt country. the transformer was too weak for the tv as there was also a stereo set plugged on the same transformer. The transformer started smoking and the fuse got blown, however, I changed the fuse ,but i do not know for sure what size fuse i am supposed to put as the original fuse got burnt to dust. Now the tv powers on for about 2 or 3 seconds and automatically shuts itself off within the two seconds of being on. can anyone tell me what the problem is? Thank you kindly for you help.

    Hi Aj,

    thanks for your help, it is a lasonic transformer, 50hz-60hz. the stereo set, fuse is blown too, but I have not attempted to repair or change its fuse. The tv however, I have bought a new fuse, a 5 ohm, but it only powers on for a couple of seconds. What do you suggest I should do about the tv?



    thanks.

There are products called Step Up transformers/Step Down (Voltage Converters) that can be used. We use these For our 220VAC Australian manufactured lasers when we need to run them in a Dr.'s office that only has US 110VAC.

Info from a website:
Electrical voltage in USA is 110 voltwhereas; the voltage in most of the foreign countries is 220V to 240 volt. A voltage converter / transformer, also known as power converter are usedto convert electricity coming out of the wall to match the voltage of yourdevice. These Voltage transformers or converters can be used safely withRefrigerators, Microwaves, Juicers, Blenders, Coffee makers, Power Tools,Stereo Systems, TV's, Video Games, DVDs, Hair dryers, Chargers, computersand other electronics when travelling abroad..

Remember to leave at least a 100-percent margin for power surges/spikewhen buying a transformer. Some items, such as Televisions, computermonitors spike when you turn them on. For these products you need to buy avoltage converter transformer that is at least 3 times the items capacity.Power tools, laser printers and heating appliances like coffee makers,toasters, microwaves, Halogen, Fluorescent bulbs you must leave a marginof 3-4 times.

Voltage transformers are made to convert single phase 110 or 220 volt.American 220 Volt consists of 2 phase of 110 Volt and European 220 Voltconsists of 1 phase of 220 volt.

Volts x Amps = Watts (i.e. 110V x 0.5 AMPS = 55W). Please make sure not torun any appliance with higher wattage then voltage transformer's wattage.This might damage both: your appliance and the transformer!

I hope this helps.

I have a electric dryer Model WED5810SW0 THAT I WAS TOLD I COULD CONVERT TO 120V from 240v is this true and if so how do i do this?


If you consider doing this the first thing is SHUT THE MAIN BREAKER OFF. Use an auxiliary light source to see when working in a dead panel. Always keep in mind an ARC FLASH ACROSS HOT MAINS HAS ENOUGH HEAT TO PEAL THE SKIN OFF OF YOU. Before an explanation of how to do it you should keep in mind that this is for a single receptacle only. If any other receptacles are on the same circuit they will also be changed to 240 volt receptacles and if you plug any 120 volt device into them, the 120 volt device will be destroyed. That said OK, any 120 volt outlet can be changed to 240 volt by removing the 120 volt circuits neutral, re identifying the white wire with red or black phase tape and connecting it to a new 2 pole 15 amp breaker. The maximum that this circuit will now load up to is, on #14 wire at 80% = 12 amps at 240 volts. The 120V receptacle must be changed to a 15A - 240V receptacle so that 120 volt devices can not be plugged into it. Never use 2 single pole breakers together because code requires that on a fault trip both legs of the 240V circuit must be disconnected simultaneously.

Voltage converter buying guide. Voltage Transformer Buying guide.Voltage converters also known as voltage transformers are devices that convert foreign electricity to power devices from different parts of the world. A step down voltage converter is a 220 to 110 volts converter. A step up converter is a 110 volts to 220 volts converter. Our 2-way converters are voltage transformers that convert power from both 220 to 110 volts and 110 to 220 volts. They also work with 100 volts, 110 volts, 120 volts, 220 volts and 240 volts. This model is a 2 way voltage converter / voltage transformer available in many different sizes including 100 watts, 200 watts, 300 watts, 500 watts, 750 watts, 1000 watts, 1500 watts, 2000 watts, 3000 watts and 5000 watts.

My country use the 220 volts system do have to use a step down transformer of plug it in direct.it has been a year i have not used the appliance having no information on wattage


If your microwave is wired for 220 volts AC and your country standard house current is 220, and the plug is of the proper configuration, plug it in.

Standard microwave size is around 1100 watts at 110 volts Normally, two times the voltage is 1/2 the wattage. Ohms law, Voltares Law and Watts Law apply.

If your microwave is 1100 watts at 110 volts --- yes you will need a step- down transformer of some type.

Screen does not switch on at all , and no sound either. However standby light is on only when plugged. TV repair told me it is transformer and line up, however asking for more then 100...


Hello, most common faults, such as CRT TV will not turn on. The reason stems from the low power supply failure, or from the high power supply. There are two transformers suppliers, with more common high-tension transformer goes bad. Price of 80 or $ 100, sounds reasonable replacement of transformer. Along with this need to perform some tests that require a professional, to confirm that the problem is due because of transformer. One test is to test basic stability, voltage power reaching the high-voltage transformer. If lower than normal voltage. Then perform the same test, when you break the initial snap of the transformer. If the voltage rises to the desired level must be to replace the high voltage transformer. Good luck!

Hello ,my germ guardian 5A54A265 ultra sonic humidifier is 110 volts from what i read on it ,i moved to Germany with my husband ,and here the voltage is 220 volts ,my Question is can i plug it in the...


You need to use a transformer and it needs to be capable of supplying enough power to operate your humidifier. There should be a plate on the humidifier that shows it's requirements in Voltage and either AMPS or WATTS. The transformer needs to be able to supply approx 20% more Amps or Watts, at least, than your humidifier uses. It's ok if it can supply a lot more than this but not if it supplies the bare amount required or less. The transformer will show this as Output in either WATTS or AMPS.

As some appliances quote AMPS and others quote WATTS you may need to convert between amps and watts this is how you do it.
WATTS = VOLTAGE multiplied by AMPS. and
AMPS = WATTS divided by VOLTAGE.
Also note Kw stands for Kilowatts or thousands of watts.

The voltage you're drawing is 110 so that's the figure you use.

I used to live in america and i moved to australia, mcan i use my mixer? it says 110 volt


Maiins Voltage in Aus is nominally 240 Volts, so plugging in directly with an adaptor will fuse motor. The only way to use the Miixer is to purchase a step down transformer (ie 240 V to 110 V) with a minimum rating at least equal to the power of the mixer which is 250 Watts. You should be able to purchase the transformer online or through Jaycar Electronics (branches in most major cities) . They are not that cheap but would be less than getting a new mixer rated at the correct voltage and it would also let you power other 110 V items that you have provided you don't exceed the transformer rating.

Without Knowing the Output Chip or transistor Numbers, I don't know but Most 100 Watt anps use 60 to 70 Volt Centertap Sacondarys. Also if You Take the Cover off The Transformer you will find a Thermal Fuse in the Primary. I have bypassed the Thermal Fuse and went with a external fuse, Go for it.

No power.its plugged into the outlet and it works. red power buttom not on tv


HELLO. it sounds like it could be a couple of things why your set will not come on. 1. you could have a blown fuse.on the chassis. 2. you could have a bad power supplly transformer. 3. you could have a bad horizontal output transistor and a bad fly back transformer. it could be one of them or both of them as well as a blown fuse. because the fuse is blown from the horizontal output transistor burning out or the fly back transformer burning up. check and see if you have a burnt fuse, the size iof the fuse will be 5 amp to 6.3 amp fuse on the chassis right inside where the 110 ac cord comes in and hooks to the chassis. the fuse should be right there, look for it. hope this helps you"GOOD LUCK"

No screen on/no power to tv


1. Check whether the fuse in the Tv is blown or not. it may be located before the SMPS power unit.
2. if fuse is ok,then there might be problem with ur regulated power supply. Check for 110 voltage before the SM transformer
3.Check whether the EHT is working properly
4. these must be done by authorised service personnel.
5. No rectification from user part without the knowledge of servicing. More caution
