thanks for your rapid response.
there is s a code on the board ; KE10W-12V-1.
the board has the following items on it:
2 x 2way screw connectors
4 x diodes (i assume the bridge rectifier)
2 x large brown resistors
2 x small wire wound resistors
2 x transisor things (although they may be voltage regulators but too much damage done to read)
1 x transformer
1 x large black thing (possibly a coil).
i am guessing that this is some kiind of smothing circuit for the ac
if you know of a rapid start set-up that i can use to replace this junk, please advise me.
