Question about Toys
You CANNOT measure the health of the transformer winding, either primary or secondary with an ohmmeter so resistance value is a moot thing. A single shorted turn is fatal but will not show up on an ohmmeter. This is the way you test the unit: Put the core back in if it has been removed. Apply 120 volts using a 15 Watt lamp in series with the power, The lamp will limit the current to a safe value. What looks like a burn mark often is discolored varnish. If the lamp goes out, the winding is OK. The core MUST be in for this test!
