There is already a voltage regulator circuit in situ but the DC voltage was 19V instead of 12V. Is there any simple way to step down the voltage without rebuilding the whole circuit? Can I add resistors across the output terminals to bring down the voltage?
Thanks
What kind of voltage regulator is in now?
Does it need a minimum load to function properly?
If so, what happens to the voltage when you apply that minimum load?
If that does the trick, the question to you last answer should be "yes", provided you use resistors that can deal with the power they're dissipating.
