Hello, a friend of mine found what probably is an US 1541 drive since it is powered by a 117V 0.5A power supply. Its board P/N is 1540050 and there are many "patches" (I think these are official upgrades). But the problem is that, here in Italy (and in Europe) the power is 220V. So I have compared the 117V power supply and the 220V one from another drive and I noticed that, on the 220V one, the FUSE is connected to a red and to a black piece of cable and that a black cable is free. Instead, on the 117V unit the FUSE is connected to two black cables from the PSU and the "free" one is red. So, if I exchange the cables connected to the FUSE holder, can I successfully convert a 117V unit to 220V? If yes, should I change the 500mA fuse with a 250mA fuse like an European drive? Or a drive modified in such a way will definately be like a bomb? ;-) P.S. the PSU P/N is the same but the 117V one ends with "-02C" and the 220V with "-03C". ____ __ / ___|____ Daniele Gratteri, Italian Commodore and Amiga user /// | | |___/ E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org __ /// | |___|___\ IRC: FIAT1100D - ICQ: 53943994 \\\/// \____| URL: http://spazioinwind.iol.it/danielegratteri \/// Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
