Recently got this korg that needs help. It would not get any power. After opening it up and testing things, it seemed the transformer is at fault surprisingly. 1st bad transformer Ive ever seen. Got power going to the transformer from the plug/switch, and on the primary side of the transformer... but the secondary side only read 13v..
Now this is where I need some advice or help. After considering the options of replacing the transformer I ended up uncertain about some things.
The transformer has printed on it "100v 19.9v 35.8va"
Looking at the boards schematics in the manual, that line says 25v, and not 19.9v... |:
At first I blamed the regional difference for what is printed on the transformer, but the more I thought about it, the more puzzling it got. I wondered if a mis-specification is why the transformer is bad to begin with. I know some electronics get sent out that way...
My main question is, would the specification of transformer make a difference?
Say if I used a typical transformer with 40va and 120v/24v? Could that effect the performance of the dw8000?
Also could it effect/hurt other components down the line?
Or would the board just take what it needed off the 24v?
Im curious to know what someone else is getting on their secondary side, so if anybody else on here happens to have tackled this problem and knows, or has their dw8000 open?
Any advice is seriously appreciated.
