    Hi
    I have Samsung SCX-4200 bought in USA. It accepts 110V AC @5Amps. Pls direct me to a suitabel solution for using it in Mumbai with 220V AC.

    It will help if u can respond wrt following :-

    1. Cost of replacng the original Power supply of 110V AC with 220V AC through Samsung/3rd party

    2. Cost of a StepDown Txformer 220V/110V 5amp (Approx 500W)

    3. I tried using the 220V to 110V Convertors rated at 1000W but the converter blew up & there was a Spark at printer end also. I don't know if printer is alive or dead. A quick chk with multimeter at printer end showed me that with swithc ON, i get zero Resistance & Infinite with Switch Open.

    4. Any other useful option

    Pls help me asap

    Thanks

    Sanjay

    Mine too blew up (the stepdown that is). This one's a broadband router....

    Thanks. I contacted local Samsung Service centre who sold me a Step down Txfermoer for Rs 1000. My Printer is working fine now.
