REWIRING THE POWER SUPPLY FOR 115V OR 240V AC
If you have bought an SX camera that was intended for operation on a different AC mains voltage (perhaps a European 240v camera that you want to use in the USA on 115v) then the power supply may be modified, as follows:
WARNING! You will be working on a high voltage circuit. Please take care to disconnect from the AC supply and don’t leave the wiring exposed with power applied!
You will need a small ‘posidriv’ screwdriver and a soldering iron. Don’t try this if you are not familiar with soldering electronic parts – ask someone who is to do the job for you!
First, unplug the power supply from the wall socket and camera, then unscrew the four posidriv screws in the bottom panel of the power supply. Lift off the bottom panel and pull out the mains transformer to expose the mains wiring. You will see something like this if your power supply is set up for 240v AC:
This is the wiring for 115v operation:
You may rewire the transformer into either configuration, as required.
