Question about Toshiba Sony ICFCD855V Clock Radio
My power supply for my Sony ICFCD855V Dream Machine went south. Do I just replace it with another 110 VAC to 9 VDC power converter?
Power supply seems to be 12 volts. I have ICFCD855V's and the power cords on both broke just past the strain relief on the power supply. That shorted the supply and blew the fuse (1.6 amp). I soldered in a new fuse and the supply (with no load) puts out 12VDC. Since it happened to 2 in my house I can't believe Sony doesn't have a recall on these things

I read that the 1-468-809-11 POWER
UNIT is input ac 110 volt and output 8.5volt dc. I got my ICF CD855V at a yard sale. The power cords were frayed and I shorted the PS out. As per Kalvinb I decided to check on that blown the fuse (1.6 amp). As for those SONY proprietary triangular screws, I just took a drill and drilled the heads off. Then the cover pries off and one can replace the screws or just slide it back on and tape it. The fuse is there to replace, but I just ran a bead of solder across the circuit board until I can get a proper 1.6 A fuse. The Dream Machine works great!!

Yup, another SONY POS. Had the same problem the transformer is way too large and heavy so the power cord broke right at the strain relief, got twisted and shorted. Of course SONY used these propritary trangular screws so you can't salvage the power supply. Had a Sony camcorder which went bad you would not believe the nonsense I went through to tey to get it fixed. Forget SONY. Just have to train my family members to avoid their products. If I have the time I would try Kalvinb's method

The cord has bare wires exposed just past the strain releif of the power converter. Can i repair it inside the converter or do i need to buy a new one? Please advise
