Have I fried my amp beyond repair?

Need to know how to setup your guitar? How do you lower your action? How do you get rid of the Milli Vanilli stickers? Look here first.

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

After weeks of searching - I finely found a H&K cream machine.

In my excitement I didn't realize it is a 110v model when I plugged it into 220v supply.

The red LED lit momentarily then it died!

Help!

Do I just replace the fuse and then try a 110v supply. Or maybe the transformer inside? Or have I fried my unit?

Any help most welcome!

Cheers

I would try a new fuse first, remember to plug into 110v when you try it again. Did you see any smoke? Any funky smells?

I looked at the schematic, if the fuse replacement doesn't work then suspect the power transformer but the fuse should a fast blow fuse to protect the trans. Remember to replace the fuse with an EXACT same rated fuse.
When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming......
like the passengers in his car.
