Hello I have an LM7812CT power regulator and I want to use it to convert a 28V dc to a 12V dc.
I am using the circuit provided in the data-sheet using 2 capacitors, one 0.33uF connected to the input voltage pin(1)and the ground ,and one 0.1uF connected to the ground and the output pin(3).
My problem is that I get output voltage 3.9-4.0 Volts.
I get this value even with 12V supply to input.
How can i fix it to get my 12V?
Where do you think am I wrong? Is it burned??
Any ideas welcome
edit:: ok guys the LM7812ct was burned after all. I replaced it and everything worked ok!! thnx and keep up the good work
