Re: MADrigal's creatiVision collection

Re: How to build a creatiVision power supply

OK just to make sure that everyone understands your diagram: that is a NON-working adaptor! Is this correct? :)

Re: How to build a creatiVision power supply

It well may be the 7805 is gone, still easy to replace. Hopefully that's the only damage occurred internally.
Good luck and cross fingers on your next attempt. Please dont give up! :)

Re: How to build a creatiVision power supply

Mate, there is no "+" and "-". The power supply is AC (alternate current). You have positive/negative on DC only.

I am unsure if you can use one single transformer to obtain two power lines. In my case I utilised 2 separate transformers and that worked 100%.

Re: How to build a creatiVision power supply

Mark, I suggest you look at the connector on the console side. You will find out that the pins/power lines are coupled 1-2 and 4-5. Pin 3 (centre) is not utilised.

This obviously reflects on the power supply DIN

Re: How to build a creatiVision power supply

Hi all

I have made contact with DOSS and unfortunately they confirm the product is now discontinued:

Hi Luca,

Unfortunately these have been very discontinued, and there is no replacement.
