Dead speakers!?

    Wonder if anyone can help, I (stupidly) plugged in a set of US
    speakers into a socket in Australia. They worked for a few minutes
    then died. Have I stuffed them altogether or just blown a fuse?
    Appreciate any advice.

    Thanks,
    Danny

    Stuffed. If they'd had a fuse, it would've blown the second you
    switched it on. (I'm an Aussie local, & I've seen this way too many
    times.)

    Probably burned out the primary of the power transformer, if you know a
    bit about electronics you should be able to find a suitable substitute,
    something that even has the correct 240V primary even.
     
  4. How? The Aussie socket is a US 240 volt socket.
    Maybe. Ask around for a local repair guy.

    open them and find out. Or if you dont know to open them and find out
    whats wrong, maybe best leave them alone.

    Whats the time/value ratio for pc speakers?

    If you use a multimeter you should be able to find out whats going on
    where.
