    I recently acquired an old Hammond organ from a friend. He said it worked fine, but the power cord was missing the tip. Replacing it should make everything all happy and good. Another well-intentioned friend said he could fix it, so I said "sure." After the tip was replaced, the organ seemed to work and sound was coming out. After a while it became quieter and finally the sound vanished. It works erratically. So, we checked things out and it looks as if the friend replaced the tip with a 125v tip. The actual organ is 120v. Is the whole thing ruined now? If not, what type of tip should we use? Any help is dearly appreciated.
