Midi out from edp.

Weird thing, playing with some guys right now, and they need midi clock from me, they say that thr clock they are getting from me has a kind of stop In it... So their gear is not working... Weirdly this happened to me recently when this same edp was plugged into the repeater, the repeater would just stop after one note...

Sadly I can't test the cable with anything else because I don't have anything that uses that type of cable unless theres another way to test it?

I was wondering if I could use an adapter with the american cable as the echoplex has its own voltage switch I shouldn't need a voltage converter should I?

Ahh 2.5A 250V~ mines 10A 250V~ don't know if this is the actual problem because the lead that came with it reads 10A 250V~ but I might go and look for another lead anyway.  

thats not the problem
if one was only 130V it would theoretically be possible to create a short circuit when loaded with 230V but very unlikely
the current through the EDP is far below 2A anyway, so if there was a fault in it, the internal fuse would blow, exept if there is a short cirquit right at its power socket.

the safety switch reacts to much smaller currents that "run away" so if only this switches off, there may be a insulation problem in the EDP, maybe even a cap between power input and ground which is too big for your safety switch.

first test would be whether the power cable itself makes the fuse blow

It's lucky my house has a safety switch when things like this happen =]

Cheers for your help halim

hi james. i had the same problem with the edp when i first got it from the US. i live in malaysia and we run the same voltage as the UK (230-240) But i'm thankful because the guys here at LD helped a total noob like me to make it run. i did not put my edp in use for quite sometime until i'm sure that i'm using the right cables..even learning how to flick the voltage switch at the back :P . i used a cable marked with the voltage 2.5A 250V~ (a regular computer power cable which i snatched from my pc) and voila! the edp was alive. I'm sorry i can't help you with the blown fuse but i'm sure it's fixable.

i googled my old posts and it did bring some memories of how nice people in this list can be. sorry to butt in.

Well, the only you can do to the plug is take the fuse out theres no way to get into the plug without mangling it up. Its a 5a fuse.

I just purchased the EDP and as I got from america and I live in england I thought it would be easiest to buy a replacement power cord. The replacement looked pretty much identical so I decided to it in, switched the voltage on the EDP to 230 and then switched it on, all my outlets blew. 

so I was wondering if anyone can help me with this? I'm thinking it must be the lead because the guy I bought it from said it was working fine before he sent it. Is it possible to just plug adapter and use the american lead?
