mp250- dance club lighting.

i recently bought one from a garage sale. and i cant seem to work it. i plug it in the light goes on my nothing else seems to power up. not fans, motors, not lights, not even the led menu display.

can someone advice me on some of the things that may be wrong with it? could it be the transformer? ic chips? ballast?, fuse?, igniter? anything would help.

i forgot to mention that im not a great electonic guy so the simpliest term possible.

thank you in advance

There are all sorts of dance club lights. I would research what you have and start there. Terms might include DJ lights, club lighting, studio lighting, dance lighting, etc. Check out what local music equipment stores carry since that may give you a clue as to what you have.

Depends on the appliance, but it would most likely burn out fast or possibly catch on fire.

Plugs and receptacles for 240V and 120V are different shapes, so you can't accidentally plug one in the other.

What is the appliance in question? Does it have any electrical requirement markings on it at all?

faulty transformer?

im getting 120v on the line. but the LEDs on the cicuit board is not lite on. is that beacause the low voltage side of the transformer is bad? anything to do with an ic chip?

You are going to have to be far more specific with your questions.

What sort of 'transformer'?

How is it connected?

What is it connected to?

How are you measuring things?

What are _all_ of the symptoms that you see?

Small 'wall wart' transformers for electronics can fail, can have fuses blow, etc. Additionally, some electronic devices have various internal protection features, eg. fuses or TVS components which can burn out. Finally, it is very common to have a wire or connector fail on the cords that connect transformers to electronics, or even the power cord going into a transformer.

I have merged all your threads together, since it seems they all refer to the same device.

Please do not start separate threads for the same issue.
