    Whats the fuse rating supposed to be on the mains cable for a Barco 808?

    Having just struggled to get the barco into my mates flat we noticed that we'd lost the power lead somewhere - I had thought to just use one of the spares he had lying around but then remembered that plugs/cables have different fuses and obviously don't want to use the wrong sort on the Barco! I think it's 5amps from memory?
    Thanks,
    paul

    I had to buy a mains cable recently, it is indeed 5 amp.

    Many thanks, I really didn't want to risk using the wrong fuse in someone else's projector (I'd feel obliged to pay for it if it subsequently caught fire or something :( ).

    5amp will blow, you will need at least 10amp and even that could be borderline after a few days of being off. Fit a 13amp but make sure the lead you fit is of the same rating.
