Hi there. Bit of a serial lurker here and finally got around to registering. I would appreciate any help with my aparantly dead system :crying:
A while ago I bought an NEC clone version of the Laseractive from a reputable seller in japan and got it shipped over to where I live in the UK. According to everywhere I read, japanese appliances work at US voltage but to avoid things that produce lots of heat like hair dryers and straightners and the extra heat could reduce its lifespan etc. So I bought a voltage converter from maplin for up to 100w: http://www.maplin.co.uk/100w-uk-to-u...c=so&u=strat15
I hooked it up and pressed the power button and nothing happened. Like, absolutely nothing, no lights, no noise, no smoke or smell, etc. I guess the easiest thing would be to test another stepdown transformer.
Other than that, what kind of options do I have? Thanks in advance.
