That can be tested to be sure it is bad and not just a blown fuse. Do yo have a small digital multimeter? About $20 at most hardware stores and easy to use. I can direct you in some testing. We can see if the converter really is bad or something more simple. All follow ups are included in our fee. No time limit.
