  • FIXING A FRIED MICORKORG

    hi yall

    a friend just gave mea microkorg that he killed..
    Apparently he used a wrong a power adapter and plugged a 110v instead of a 220v to it [we use 220v here].

    Obviously the korg didnt like it much, and now all it does is momentarily turn on the audio in lights when i try to switch it on.
    i googled around and i saw some people who were able to fix it.
    i cant really find anything that /looks/ fried, but im going to take a voltmeter to it.

    is there any tips you could give out, or do you know someone who did this?
    for some reason i feel like its just a burnt cap/resistor, and i'd just need to find it..

     

    there's this guy >>

    always wanted a microkorg, now i got one eh..


    any help would be rewarded with at least a virtual bow.
    thanks

    tragedy...
    but in my opinion, wrong voltage issue - 110v instead of 220v, it won't damage the device, there be big problem when 220v using on 110v...

      Are you saying you are now using the correct power adapter and it doesn't work?
