I'm thinking about getting a TAF that started life as a 110 machine and was later turned into 220. How hard is it to change it back?

Thanks,
Jeremy

Your manual should have the things you need to change on the connector plugged in on top of the on/off switch box.

I'm getting ready to do a few of these myself, sounds simple enough. Can anyone explain how the machine compensates for the difference in hertz?

The seller says that someone removed the "main filter when doing the original conversion." Does that change the answer in any way?

Maybe. If he's referring to the line filter, you'll need to source and install a replacement. It will be located inside the metal box, just inside the coin door.

Nothing needs to be done to accommodate this.

Actually, looking at the pictures now, I can see the whole metal box was removed, which is unfortunate but that's still manageable I think. Just need to find the replacement.

Hey Chris, yeah I know, the tinkerer in me just wonders why.

I wish I could tell you, but I don't think it will make a difference at all.
The only thing in the game that truly operates from AC is the GI dimming function (via the 4 quadrant Triacs). And the human eye and the "persistence" of the lamps make the difference imperceptible.

Sorry to keep hijacking this thread - converted 3 pins no problem today, have 2 more WPC's to do in the morning. I have a non-WPC (EATPM - Sys 11-B), to which I don't have good references for conversion. Can someone please point me to what would need to convert this game back to 110v? I'm looking in the manual right now & not seeing what I think I should be seeing.

No worries. If I actually buy the TAF, I'll rehijack it or start another one.

Right now it's only theoretical for me, though it sounds like I wouldn't have as easy a time of it since the stock factory stuff is missing in favor of some different hardware.
