Hi all.

I am based in the UK and bought my G2 in october.

It's been fine: until now.

When powering on yesterday, it died. I checked the internal fuse, which had blown, and bought several 160ma 240 volt 20mm glass replacements (there were no 125mA available.)...

But it keeps blowing. Do I need a Time delay fuse or quick acting, and is the power supply potentially faulty?

Any advice would be most, most welcome, as i do not wish to do the unit anymore potentail damage due to my ignorance..

: Confused Crying or Very sad

Thank you.

Yup, a slow blow one, or type T.

Because the startup current is pretty high, a quick blow will act on that, and a slow blow not.
