I have incandescent Christmas lights hooked up, and yet nothing happens. I suppose I could flip the transformer around, but now im nervous to even be touching this kit. I dont want to die...There is a white dot on one corner of the transformer but I don't see it represented in the drawing. He could try turning the transformer around without risk of (further) damage.
By the way, this circuit was intended to drive incandescent lamps. Other loads might not work at all or might work erratically.
So are you saying that when I plug this in, to not ever touch it?! How can I even interact with it as it was marketed to work...On the subject of safety: Please note that touching any of the circuitry, including the wires to the pots can result in a potentially lethal electrical shock. It would be wise to never touch this assembly or anything electrically connected to this assembly while it is connected to AC.
So are you saying this kit is basically junk and unsafe? Im wondering why the company continues to sell it... bummer!I think this comes under the class of power supply that is prohibited on this forum. I think in this case there is a very great risk of people trying to connect it to an external audio source which could well be grounded. In the best case it can blow the mains fuse in the worst case it will kill the person attempting to connect the items together.
