Recently, my American girlfriend relocated to Britain and she brought her computer equipment with her. Some of her equipment, eg. tower and printer are marked 50/60 MHz, 120/230 volts, these are working fine, but her scanner says only 120 volts and we are afraid to try that in case we damage it, because her Bose radio was also 120 volts only and we tried that and it appears something has blown in it.To sum up, what we really want to know is, is it possible to buy a adapter, to use the 120 volts equipment, or will she have to get new and do you think the Bose radio is knackered or maybe just blown a fuse inside. Much obliged for any help. Blackpat.
blackpat, re the Bose radio. If you are lucky, you may have only blown a fuse or similar protection device. If you are technically competent, you can remove the cover and see if there is such a device. If you are not able to do this, then you could ask a service engineer to have a look.
