Question about Sony ICF-C1IP White Powered Speaker System Docking Station for iPod (27242721739)
I want to use my Sony ICF-C1IPMK2 device in Europe, so I have to change the power adapter that comes with the device, to convert 220V AC to required DC. I've tried it with a 500mA adapter with voltages from 3V to 12V. It work fine with voltages over 6V. What should be the correct voltage for this device?
A transformer type (Linear Mode Power Supply) AC to DC power adapter with a 9.V nominal output, measures about 12.V without load when tested with a multimeter. A power adapter with a nominal output of 7.5 V, measures a little over 9.V. Considering a number of people across different forums reported the adapter's measured power output as 12.V, I think the nominal rating of the AC to DC adapter should be 9.V. However, keep away from Switch Mode Power Supplies.

Closed minded Sony doesn't display this information on their power adapter. And radio displayes 120V input voltage, yeah right. (adapter is hard corded to the radio)
For myself, fu¼&#ng cat has eaten the cord and short-circuited the adapter. Can't read the voltage anymore. Anyone anywhere can pin through the rubber and get a voltage reading between the adapter and radio ?

Check on the AC adapter that came with the device. It should list the DC output voltage and mA. Use the closest setting that works. Try not to go over the output of the stock adapter. A little over should be ok. For example if the stock one puts out 8 and you have to set to 9 volts.
