    Farfisa Mini Compact Power Cord

    Mini Compact that had what sounded like all the keys were being held down. Re-soldered the grounds in PS and replacing 2 caps fixed that. The customer wanted the power cord replaced. In stock form, one side of the power cord goes to a fuse and the other side is switched. Should I rewire to put the fuse and switch on the hot side or leave as is?

    It's an old design with a wire fused and a single wire switched, no matter which one.
    If the third wire (Gnd) is present and well connected, the best is to leave all as it is.

      Thanks JP - I'll leave it stock after I replace all of the PT primary and secondary leads.

        You might be able to do this if the owner isn't concerned about maintaining vintage aesthetics.

          This is a very good idea because the wires are often damaged when you fold the feet to carry it.
          But difficult to achieve because the power supply has no free space to install both a jack output socket and a mains socket, which would be perfect..Click image for larger version  Name:	CompactRearPanel.jpg Views:	0 Size:	61.5 KB ID:	670307
