Re: How to build a creatiVision power supply

Thanks guys, I won't give up but i may put it on hold for a while :) Yes definitely used the multimeter in AC mode, I would have gotten pretty much nothing in DC mode (I've done it before :) ) Here is the way I wired up the transformer, I've tried to make it a little bit clearer so rotated the 5 pin...

Re: How to build a creatiVision power supply

I made a mistake with the transformer, turns out the 0v isn't centre tapped so I'm assuming that's what caused the issue I just had :( :oops: I wired it all up and triple checked using my multi-meter, the 18v was actually 19.2 and the 9v was a little high too but as it was not under load, I assume t...

Re: How to build a creatiVision power supply

Ahh makes sense, I reiterate my first sentence last post about being a novice :lol: My experience is replacing capacitors on old consoles, re soldering, and car electronics (hence the +/-) I appreciate your help mate, you're an absolute legend. P.S. Maybe I should complete and electronics course bef...

Re: How to build a creatiVision power supply

OK I have the new plug but just looking for some advice for a novice if anyone is able. On the original diagram there is a red and blue wire, just wondering which is positive and which is negative. Usually red is positive however the fuse is also usually on the live wire which is blue in the diagram...

Re: How to build a creatiVision power supply

I ripped the plug apart and looks like the red cable had come loose as mentioned. I'm going to head to the store over the weekend to buy a new 5 pin din. I'll let you know how it goes. Let's just assume I somehow mixed up the green and blue when testing the lines. :) Thanks for your help guys, much ...

Re: How to build a creatiVision power supply

OK I cut the cable open and the green wire literally just starts part way down, it goes nowhere, it just appears and is mapped to the pin I highlighted

Re: How to build a creatiVision power supply

Thanks Tom, yeah I will have to open the plug up to have a look. I used a multimeter to map the wires to the plug, once it's wired up I'll double check it again. There shouldn't be a short between he blue and green because they each only map to 1 pin using the multimeter. Also I still don't know whe...

Re: How to build a creatiVision power supply

Hi All, I decided to build a replacement power supply for my DSW using the existing 5 pin, when I tested the cable to locate which wire goes to which pin it got weird. There are 4 wires that come from the transformer Yellow, White, Red & Blue, I could align 3 of them to pins but not the red one. The...
