Will a tranformer from a Twilight Zone(5610-12835-00) work on a DCS Indiana Jones(5610-13491-00)?They have the same plugs.Thanks

If the voltages are the same (outputs to all the boards), I don't see why it wouldn't. Most all pins use the same type plugs, Molex.

A non-DCS transformer can be used in a DCS game, but will overdrive the amplifier supply, delivering approximately 50V to the TDA2030, which is only rated at 36V.

Will it work? Yes. Will you damage your sound board? Most likely.

My IJ came with a Funhouse transformer, and the sound board was damaged. Perhaps it's a fluke, I don't know for sure.

It also looks like there is a difference between the BOP (and possibly FH?) transformers vs the other non-DCS transformers. My BOP transformer does not have the 2 wire purple plug for the 100V (presumably since it is one of the few WPC games that does not have a DMD)
