Default Pinball Magic Voltage Converter

I just found this forum in search of help for a voltage conversion of my Capcom Pinball Magic machine. I bought it when I lived in Europe and thus it runs on 220v. Now that we have moved to Canada I need to convert the machine to 110v. There is a card attached to the voltage converter but the card is ripped in half, showing only the instructions for 220v.

Does anybody know what the configuration should be to run the machine on regular 110v?

Well, Page one of your manual does show it can be switched to 115vac or 220vac. Most likely you re-configure the plugs on the mains to the power transformer. Here is the manual.http://mirror2.ipdb.org/files/3596/C...gic_Manual.pdf
You are in luck as page 186 shows the pins for various voltages.

Thanks so much! I had found the manual and looked through some of the diagrams but I had not connected that page with the voltage regulator (which is obvious now). I'll look into it tomorrow.

Thanks again for your quick reply!

wtg gj wd ty coil_smoke for finding the parameters on this voltage conversion. you saved me the time looking it up. in that wico thread you talked about using a VOM. do you still have and use one? is it a simpson 260 with mirror scale? i learned on one in high school electronics vo-tech back in the 70's. a VOM is a volt-ohm-milliameter and is now replaced with the DMM (digital-multi-meter)
