I need two 240v Xbox power supplies, preferably in Australia. I'm willing to do a direct swap for two 120v power supplies.

Cheers

Sorry, but I don't really wanna let go of a power supply until I have something to replace it with. Don't want an Xbox with no P/S smile.gif

As far as I know, neither of my 120v power supplies will work off 240v.

The first 120v Xbox I had I plugged into 240v (No, I'm not really that stupid, but there was a mis-communication with my brother. Long story...) and it blew the big capacitor. That PS had no fuse. I managed to replace the capacitor, no big deal.

My second 120v PS has a fuse, but I've never tried it in 240v. This one actually has a sticker on it (the 1st didn't) with specs. It states input power as 100-127v~2.5A The fuse that was originally in the PS was rated at 1A 250v. But that fuse blew, so I replaced with another 1A fuse, but that blew again (went through 3 of those). So I went up to 1.25A, and the fuse hasn't blown yet.

I've just read your tutorial about replaced the fuse, and I really can't believe that the Xbox PSes have 15A 250v fuses in them. I know with 100% certainty that my Xbox PS had a 1A 250v fuse in it. Perhaps you thought the fuse read 15A, when in fact it read 1.5A The decimal point is quite easy to miss.

no 15a is correct for the fuse, those i hold it in my hand and i have replaced many fuse's. 2nd the capacitor is a bitch to get cause i tried replacing it and they put in the code and listed unknown vendor. so you lucked out on the part =/. 1.5a rating would be really tiny for a PS rating seeing that most small electronics with 30gauge wires have that rating to 3a.

Seems strange, 'coz I know for sure that the fuse in my PS was 1A, and the PS is now running fine with a 1.25A~250v fuse.

You're right, the capacitor wasn't that easy to find. You won't find it at Radio Shack smile.gif In fact, I wasn't able to find one rated at 680 micro farrads with the same physical size. The one I found was slightly larger in height, but it still managed to fit. I think it touches the plactic HDD tray, but no big deal.
