Imported Yamaha Aventage RX-A1000 fried :(

Recommended Posts

My mate just arrived back from the US with a new Aventage RX-A1000 which he promptly plugged in to try it out as soon as he got home, much smoke was discharged from the unit after about 10 seconds...power was turned off immediately but i imagine the damage has already been done.

Clearly this was a result of the Australian 240v power being too great for a 120v component.

He's planning to see if a local Yamaha service agent can repair it then endeavours to buy an inverter to connect it once it's repaired.

Anyone have any ideas about what type of damage has been done and what the chances are it will be repairable.

Any assistance that can be offered would be much appreciated.

The auxiliary power transformer will almost certainly be smoked. It will need to be replaced. The problem may be that 240VAC units may be the only ones available. He may need to import a 117VAC unit specially. If not, then either a third party tranny will need to be fitted, or he will have to replace both the main tranny and the aux tranny. Approximate expected prices of the trannies are:

Aux tranny - AUS$20.00

Main tranny - AUS$250.00

Labor costs could be lie from around $100.00 ~ $250.00

I'd suggest you tell him that he is an idiot, but I suspect he knows that already.
