Quoted from daniel0265:
Can you show me a pic of what you did? I need to do the same for my POTC. I have so much mods attached to the 12V that now I don't think I can connect my 2 Noflix Pinball Cards on there. They each draw 400mA (about 1/2amp) so I just ordered a 120V-12V power supply. I was going to used the service outlet also but I was also thinking if attaching another switch to it and drill a new hole on the bottom of the pin for the switch. But now i wonder if I can just tap into the 115V for the validator also. I just hope it can handle a but over 1 amp.
Here's all I ended up doing to wire up this mod:
1. On the Dollar Bill Validator, located the hot lead.
2. Crimped two .062" contact sockets onto two strands of 18 gauge wire (I still need to go back and place both terminals in a Molex connector as the pic shows: I didn't have one at the time--so I shrink-wrapped as a temporary measure).
3. Cut off the end of a standard two-prong 120 V extension cord (my mod had no neutral).
4. Joined the four wires with two wire nuts and sealed with electrical tape--note: on your cord you're hooking up, generally the flat or bigger plug is the Neutral (white). The cord will have a smooth and a ribbed side. The ribbed side is always neutral and smooth side is hot, live or black. Since the 120 V mod I was hooking up was a light and only had a two terminal plug, there was no ground needed.
Good luck in your mod.
