    So like a bonehead.... I mistakenly plugged my Line 6 DL4 power adaptor into my Strymon Blue Sky. I only noticed when some smoke was coming out of the Blue Sky, smelling like plastic death, that something was wrong. I quickly unplugged it, but am afraid the damage is done..

    So, roughly speaking, how screwed am I? Simple part replacement? Expensive in house repair? I have a new shiny doorstopper?


    thanks in advance :rollno:

    Impossible to tell.

    Send it off to Strymon and see what they say.

    Yikes, sorry.

    Just curious what the DL4 and Strymon power requirements are. Is the difference in voltage, polarity, or both?

    I believe the dl4 is 9v ac and the blue sky takes 9v dc

    Oh yikes, AC vs. DC...

    I don't have the knowledge to know what might have been fried or how fixable it is (including cost), but yeah, something got fried.
     
  6. No idea on cost but Strymon is really your only hope of getting it fixed. Presumably only the power section would be toast so it may not be too bad.

    Cool thanks everyone. It seems clear it's a job for the manufacturer as opposed to a local repair person. I'll bite the bullet and send it off, and keep my fingers crossed

    Worst it can be is a $75 repair, that's how much the folks at Strymon charge for a flat repair cost.
