Have I fried my amp beyond repair?

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!


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!

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.
