Edit: on a closer look, I think marra is right... plus to V- is not good.

merlin2069er - Yes, your primaries are connected incorrectly. And the AC. I can't comment to the PCB connections because I'm not familiar with the layout of the board.

Hang on for a little while longer I can draw all of it out for you this evening, but I must take my son to his swimming lesson right now!

You are very close, just a few re-arangements on your terminal strip and you will be there!!

How much smoke did you see and do you have any idea where it came from.

Btw. I edited my response above. If you mains connection is correct, you could try to swap the + and - on the V- bridge and fire it up again. Do you have a variac?

It was a small quick poof, not that big - I got it because I had the resistors in the wrong spot.

ok, I see where I've made my mistake. I've got the light bulb on power cord.


But, I'll have to pick up additional fuses, I've blown them all.

I've colored the wires, it's should be crystal clear.

That's not correct. (Although you do have the secondaries colored properly.) The primaries have one red lead and one black lead each.

Here is the AnTek datasheet -
