hi i have a marshall mg30dfx. i plugged it in the wall, forgetting that europe uses 220 voltage. well it made this buzzing sound and now it doesnt work anymore. i dont know what to do now is it the fuse or something? if so how can i find it, im not good with electronics..

no idea but people will prolly tell you to get a new amp, for your own good,.

Take it as a blessing and replace it.

I plugged mine directly into the mike input on my laptop and now it makes a buzzing noise too. I replaced it, but I would like to fix it well enough to sell to some loser.

you're going to get bashed because it's an mg...

the nearest tech near me charges at least 30$ american just to look at something. if it's worth that much to get it fixed, then I would go that route. otherwise, i would sell it as is. or if you're adventurous, maybe mess around with a multimeter and try to pinpoint the problem. be careful though, there are caps in there that could electrocute you if you touch the wrong thing, even when it's unplugged..

i dont know much, but i think the output transformer is what goes wrong when you do that. I think so though, im not sure though. putting a new OT in it will cost you nearly as much as the amp.

The problems that could have come from this little mishap are too many to list. Check the fuse. If you are lucky that blew and saved your amp. If the fues didn't blow then it'll be cheaper to replace your amp than it will be to fix it.

If the 220 got to the internals its junk. And how exactly did you plug it in most countries you would have had to modify the plug to even plug it in. And getting SS stuff fixed isnt cheap. If its not the fuse time for a better amp.

thanks for the advice guys i'll probably just forget about it then..

i used this thing that goes on top of the american plug so it can fit in the plugs here. but anyways i'll just look for a better amp though..

Someday maybe there will be a universal electric system. The 110/220 and 50/60 cycle thing is crap.

+1. My offhand guess though is you cooked the input/power supply transformer, which while not as much as an output tranny, is still worth more than an amp. Let this be a lesson to you not to travel without an external transformer for Euro voltages.

I hope so. It annoys me as well.
