Hi all, another one of these converting posts here.

I read a bunch of them, so I’m pretty sure I’m on the right track, just want to be certain as well as ask a couple other things.

If I understand correctly, based on the schematic I just need to move the jumpers on the plug below so that 2 goes to 8, 3 goes to 6, and 7 goes to 10. My understanding is that the yellow wire is 1 and the blue wire is 5, but I also just want some confirmation on that.

Is there a safe way to unpin the plug in the pic, or should I get a new one? I think I have all the right pins and tools coming, but just want to be certain that I’m on the right track and that I’m going to do this correctly and safely.

Thank you all!

Quoted from Dan_Halen:

That appears correct and everything you stated matches the schematic you posted.

For your absolute confirmation of pin numbers and future reference, look at the plastic connector housing under high magnification and you should see microscopically small numbers imprinted into the plastic near some or all holes. Unplug and check each side.

Example: I think I can make out a "6" and then a "5" in your photo. Therefore, the photo presently shows jumpers at 4-8 and 7-9, which matches the 220 V configuration on your schematic.

Excellent! Thank you for confirmation.

I do now see the numbers, and I have a pin extractor tool coming as well.

Thank you so much!

If the connector housing doesn't show the numbers, usually one corner will be shaped different to the other corners signifying it's pin 1.

Here's an old picture showing the pin 1 tab - you can see it on your housing too.

I do see it, on mine! It was super dirty, but I was able to see it to confirm.

Thank you for the info, I feel so much better about this now than I did when I got the game. I saw plenty of pics and had it shipped, but the seller never once mentioned it was 220V. He did give me a step up transformer, so at least I can play it, but I don’t want to keep using that.
