Hello all,

just picked up a BVP4+ from ebay. it came with power adapter (US plug).

my question to UK owners is : should i use the supplied adapter with a Stepdown transformer ? or because the BVP4+ works on a 9v power supply , try to find a "low ripple" 9v supply with UK plug.

i have seen elsewhere on these forums, the Panasonic KX-A11 adapter is available from the US Panasonic site, but cant seem to find one on a UK site.

If any UK user has the BVP4+ working in the UK , please advise what power adapter i need.

many thanks,


Powellfan

Step transformers can be very dirty power-wise, and cause on-screen visual signal distortions. So be careful about whatever device you choose to buy. If you're positive that the unit will run on a UK 220-240V system, and not fry the unit, then get a low-ripple power supply of appropriate watts/volts.

However, I didn't think the BVP-4 was made for UK power. (I could be wrong. I just don't want to be blame for a charbroiled BVP4!)


This was an unanswered question or unresolved issue found during a site audit. It's hard to have an FAQ when the answers are missing, or final outcomes are unknown. At The Digital FAQ support forum, questions are never intentionally ignored, and may have been missed due to a forum glitch or human error. More details on the audit. (In some cases, threads have been edited/updated with newer information.)

Lordsmurf,

thanks for the kind reply.
i think i will try the 9v with a uk plug , rather than the stepdown transformer.

thanks again,

Let us know what you ended up with, maybe even where you bought it.
