Hi,
I just purchased a new Rob Zombie (Spooky Pinball) it runs on 110 volt. Is there a guide to convert it to 220 volt?

Easy.

You need to unscrew the large power supply at the bottom of the cabinet.

At the rear of it, there is a switch you can slide to make it 230v.

Obviously - do this before you plug it in.

Then you will need to get a new AC power cord to plug into the connector at the back of the machine.

Easy!!

No kidding? Is this true for all Spooky Pinball? I am about to do it with my TNA and had not investigated how difficult it would be.

Why change it ... are you moving to a 230v country?

If so - yeah!

Also - just double check the second power supply in the game (present in Rick and Morty, probably in TNA). Spooky generally uses a auto-ranging unit but I know some R&M had manual adjusting units installed. Should be fine but it’d pay to double check before powering up.

Yes indeed. Just got my pins delivered to me in Belgium. I verified with the owners manual and again with Spooky. You are correct. Just a little red switch on the back of the power supply and everything is up and running. Now I just need to figure out how to get my other 7 games going. Any advice on any other manufacturers. I am going to do my WOZ next, followed by the SS Hulk, and then on to the Bally/Williams games. (I will leave my 2 Sterns for another day. That's a whole can of worms.) I have a Bally EM, but it needs some repairs, so it is low on the priority list.

The BW games are the easiest, you just need to change the wiring loops and the line cord.

Details in the manual.

WOZ will probably be the same I imagine. Or maybe similar to the spooky, depending on how they’ve done the transformer/supply. I have no experience with those.

Hulk, you’ll need to check the transformer number, but 95% it will have a 110v only transformer and you’ll have to use or install a stepdown transformer.

Your EM, same thing ... but if it’s a later Bally or Williams it could have a universal transformer. It varies by model. Games like Wizard and Capt Fantastic generally have the new transformer.

Sterns - depending what they are, there are workarounds.
