all the parts are ready - let's reassemble the cabinet Cool







after putting all the parts together, i'm using the patented "superully's power pressing method" to keep the cabinet in shape! Grin





one day later, i'm removing the weight to find something extremely beautiful underneath Kiss









looks like a taito jungle cabinet to me, doesn't it? Space Ace Space Ace Space Ace

started working on the wiring by checking the voltages going to the board and the monitor. unfortunately, i forgot that the wiring harness i'm using is NOT from the original cab, but from the usa - which means american voltages Embarrassed.

here's the line filter assembly just behind the power cord arrow



because of my forgetfulness, i didn't use a step-down converter and when i plugged in the power plug, i heard a very loud bang and smoke was coming out of the line filter assembly: the metal oxide varistor (MOV) was blown! Angry Cry



the MOV is labeled as V150LA10A arrow



i checked the schematics and found the following arrow



obviously the V150LA10A varistor is used for a 120V line, but you can also use a varistor labeled V275LA15A for a 240V line!

questions:
- can i simply replace the blown varistor with the V275LA15A variant and then use the wiring harness without a 240V > 120V stepdown converter?
- i need to order replacements and of course rs online comes to my mind (free shipping). however, they do not carry the exact model so i was wondering whether any of these would work (differents amps and stuff). i have no experience with varistors, therefore i'd better ask ...
- is it possible that the line filter was blown as well or is the varistor there to protect it?

looking forward to your input, guys!

don't you just love the smell of exploded burned out electronics  Grin

back to the question..
on the line filter it says 115 - 250 v  so no problems there ,
as for the varistor, i dont know, but i guess your fine with those from RS, the values are higher, so they can withstand higher voltages and amps.

let the experts here speak about the varistor, then i can learn also something  Grin

EDIT:
Maybe this helps also a bit ?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varistor

i have these here :



that is in fact the same, only for build in and use with a separate powercord
I can bring one for you to eurocade..
oh no wait, yuo want this to be as original as possible  Cheesy

That is a standard line filter that is found in most PC power supplies.  You can gut an old PC power supply to get at it if you want to save some $$$.

Looking again at the big pic, it looks like i can open it....
