I've been really happy with my TC-H purchases (VLP, FX150), but now I'm worried I'm about to lose my FX150 due to a failure at the DC power hand-off from the adapter.
I purchased the unit new in June 2015 and mostly kept in the rehearsal space, but the 2-conductor DC-handoff has exposed copper and is visibly frayed. I didn't notice it until the unit started getting 'finicky' on power-up, then I noticed this. (see attachment).
The unit was purchased through Musicians Friend, whom I contacted about this. They said they couldn't do anything for me and directed me to the manufacturer. I'm hoping that someone at TC-H can help me as I'm worried that my FX150 is going to be un-giggable, and possibly completely useless if this can't be remedied/replaced.
Have any other FX150 owners noticed any problems with the DC cable hand-off from their adapters?
The power adapters are a little unique -- they look like a laptop 12v adapter, but they're actually 42.5vDC --- and appear to be based on an LED driver power supply OEMed from Fuyuan Electronic Co. Easily found on the web, but only on quantities of 100 or more.
