transformer for EC8?
« on: July 04, 2018, 02:30:47 PM »
My little EC8 amp has died. No light comes on and no amplification. Haven't used much, though purchased several years ago. I loved the sound, so would like to bring it back to life.
I dissected the guts and tested for voltage at the port on the circuit board where the transformer plugs in. I don't get anything, which suggests that the transformer is dead. I can't find any information online about this transformer (BD25R12060 Guangzhou Xinning Electronic Company).
Does anyone know of a suitable replacement part?
I can't find circuit board specs for the EC8 online, so flying blind.
Thanks for any info.

Hi dstern ,
 
Welcome to the Garden!

Sorry to hear about the problem with your EC8.  Unfortunately Eden doesn't provide schematics to anyone who is not an Eden Authorized Tech or Repair shop, so you won't find one of those anywhere.

HOWEVER,  Armin (Bassmann1968) should pop in shortly and if he doesn't know off hand what you need for a replacement, he will be able to get you the info in short order.  So hopefully you'll get your amp back working again soon.

Dan

(***Edit - added second "n" to Bassmann1968 for correct spelling***)

Thanks for your reply. I haven't seen any messages from Armin (Bassman1968) in reply and I can't find him on the forum. Would be grateful if you could suggest anyone else who might be able to help.
Thanks, David

Thanks!
I think I just need to know the output voltage for the power transformer. I should then be able to purchase an alternative transformer and pop it in. If it doesn't work, not the end of the world.
