 29th February 2012, 07:52 PM #13 diyAudio Member   Join Date: Sep 2004 Location: Oregon Measure the AC voltage going to the bridge. If the AC voltage more than 20 something than you are using 18v to 18v taps for a total of 36v. Wire up the transformer from one of the 18v taps to the 0v center tap. This will drop your voltage by half since you are only using one of the two winding available.

No, Here in My city it is hard to find a Transformer with primary 120volt, I am 100% sure that the Ac input for my trans is 220v because i needed it that way.

My Bad.... It seems i made a mistake while making the connections, Connection was as Shown below.

Trans AC1 (18v) -------->> PCB AC1 in
Trans 0volt -------->> PCB AC2 in
Trans AC2 (18v) -------->> PCB 0v in

Now i have disconnected the bad connections. Before I make the correct connections, does any one think that i might have some how damaged the transformer because of the bad connection???

Thats good to know, so should i be worried about some faulty component.
