The rectifier bridge will work with DC as well; it'll just use the same pair of diodes all the time. The VIC-20 doesn't need alternating current for anything; the 9 VAC input goes directly to the rectifier bridge, which will convert it to DC. 5 volts is generated with a regulator; there's no transformer inside the VIC-20. > (Or those another type exist I do not know of and should I keep my big > mouth shut?) I was not aware that there could be several different versions of the old VIC-20 board (with the two-prong power connector). I only know that there are different two-prong connectors; the European two-prong power adapter won't fit to my NTSC VIC-20's power connector.
