(back) Subject: Re: [Residence Organs] Just when I thought I had it all figured out.... From: "Paul Soulek" <> Date: Wed, 6 Aug 2003 09:41:53 -0700 (PDT)   Quick update: I received an e-mail from someone that works at Rodgers confirming that the power supply is supposed to put out 19 volts. (I'm kind of glad---the power supply is more expensive to replace than the circuit boards, should it come to that)   Thanks for your help Paul     --- Larry Chace <> wrote: > Paul Soulek described a problem.
