If it were mine, I'd probably cry first and then laugh later. Maybe.

Serves him right buying a grey market USA unit and being too stupid to know that a 120volt unit is going to smoke when fed 240v. RTFM and support your local dealer and too bad about the warranty you do not have.

Just in case anybody missed what EveAnna was saying, this is a case of operator error, not manufacturer defect. I missed it in the video's description, but some genius was feeding 220VAC into a 120VAC unit, and this is the result.

I mean, it's not like plugging in your Atomic Squeezebox into the correct voltage and it catching fire while you're out for lunch.

I agree. No one would walk around filming their MP burning for a good ten seconds, and pretending to be shocked ("...****") unless they wanted attention. I think he put something under the hood (ashtray?).

Really? Compared to some of the responses we've seen from some dealers and manufacturers here, I'd say that her admonishing somebody for something this dumb was fairly gentle.

Not sure whether this has occurred to anybody - but perhaps the power cable was unplugged from the wall socket already when the video maker was shooting the video? There's two ends to a power cable ya know.

I've got to agree with EveAnna that it was the users fault for the smoking though.

Best regards,

If any gear of mine started to emit smoke I would for sure either grab a video camera or write a song about it before anything else... you bet....
