I bought today a 1040 stf (have already one STE & one Falcon, but I wanted to see some demos that work only on a simple st).
It is in good condition. I plugged it but with a standard cable...
This 1040 stf is in NTSC! I didn't notice it and the correct cable wasn't provided. As you can guess, the computer didn't accept my 220 V cable very well. It worked while a few seconds. There was a strange noise, then a white smoke was dissipated from the machine
I unplugged it fastly, but I guess it doesn't work anymore... So here my question: do I have to change the whole power set? Or do I just need to change some fuses or something like that? Sorry, I'm not electronics specialist, so I have no idea where that white smoke came from (but I assume doesn't smell good=doesn't mean something good)... I opened briefly the computer, and it seems ok.
Another question is: is it possible to change the whole power set in order to put a 220 V one? Is it complicated? Will I have to unweld/weld some stuffs?
Well, if I don't manage to repair this machine, I'd use some components... but it's a pity
Thanks for reading,
