HI first of all sorry if this is in the wrong place.

Last night in the lightning storm we had in New Plymouth last night my Thomson Modems plugpack got fried

I was just wondering if anyone knew where i could get a new plugpack for it?
 
The stupid thing is it runs off 22volt !!! How dumb is that but its murphys law really because i have about five 12v plugpacks lying around the place!! haha

anyway if anyone is able to help me find a solution hat would be great!!!

I think i may just build a power supply for it  as im  into making electronic projects and (pirate radio  yes i know its illegal :) )

Damage due to a lightning storm is not usually covered by a warrantee. Should be covered by your contents insurrance (if you have it).

Otherwise you're probably going to have to foot the bill for a new one.

try phoning telecom, If it's under warranty. Although that may not be covered if you don't mention the lighting storm and say it just stopped working they will probably send you a new one
