I took out an AC isolator from an old Toshiba TV, it comes directly after the fuse, which is associated with the AC plug. When I measured it's resistance it gives me a 1 ohm on multi-meter (which is in reality less than 0.01 ohms) and did connect it to my adjustable adapter, it overloads (like a short circuit) so now I'm afraid of connecting it to 220VAC and mess things up. Any advice ?
PS: The TV was working 100% properly, until it was broken, I savaged it, and it's not an LCD or LED, operates on flyback like old techs.
