Have I fried my 1029A?

Have I fried my 1029A?

In my infinite stupidity I was trying to fix an infuriating hum and turned on one of my 1029A with the voltage selector set to 115V. I am in the UK. I now realise this was a bad decision as the speaker shows no signs of life. Both power leads work fine with the other speaker so should I assume that I have fried this one? And can anyone offer any advice in terms of having it repaired including a possible cost? Thanks, Sandy

You have fried the mains fuse which can be replaced, but the speaker needs professional service. You should contact our UK distributor for more information. They will tell you the cost estimate, too.

I took it in today and the engineer replaced the fuse while I waited, solved my hum problem and charged me a grand total of £28. I am a very happy chappy! :mrgreen:
