Question about Dell Dimension 8200 PC Desktop

1 Answer

PC won't start - Moved from Australia 240V 4 amps to US 110V 8 amps

PC does nothing when pressing the start button post traveling halfway around the world.

Not sure if the trip effected the hard drives too, but the power supply seems to indicate it can accept the US 100 volts. Everything seems to have traveled well in the move, and all teh internal components seem to be OK, although I'm not sure how to test the hard drives.

Well..you may need to change the input switch on the power supply try that first.

I received a ryobi 36v battery charger as a present. It was brought in America and has a American plug. Can I use this charger in Australia


Australia has a 230v supply, and the US 110v. The power supply for your charger will indicate what input voltage it can handle. PCs, for example, typically have power supplies that can use anything between 100v and 240v, which means you can take your laptop from country to country without worrying. My Ryobi charger on the other hand says 240v input, so it doesn't have this flexibility - usually it wouldn't need to. If yours says 110v then you'll need a converter for it to function properly in Australia.

How do you unlock region code on Samsung BD-H6500 smart blue- ray player


The hack for this 3D Blu Ray player is the same as for previous models.

1. Make sure NO disc or usb stick is inserted into the player.
2. Turn on your your blu ray player.
3. When the main menu appears, press the REPEAT button followed by the region code your player is currently locked to - depending on which country
you are in (eg: in Australia press "REPEAT 7 6 8 8 4".
4. In the top right corner you will see your region code flash (eg: 4 for Australia).
5. Press 9.
6. Turn off and on and your BD-E6500 is now region free.

How this differs from the opening post is no need to open and close the disc tray.


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

So, after pressing REPEAT please enter one of the following codes the matches your current region lock:

1 - 2 9 3 3 4 (US)
2 - 5 7 5 3 8 (Europe)
3 - 5 6 7 3 2 (South East Asia)
4 - 7 6 8 8 4 (Australia / South America)
5 - 5 3 8 1 4 (India, Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, Africa)
6 - 2 4 4 6 2 (China)

9 - Region Free

Then press '9' and your player is region free.

How do i re wire it to 240v


for a start - if you want correct answer, then provide model, original voltage. if i am judging it from the picture this is skill floorboard saw made for us market (110/115v 60hz), you cannot rewire the motor - full stop! purchase step down transformer 240v/110v 6amps to 10amps, if in australia - this transformer will set you back about $60.00 if in euro, this transformer (depending on country) will cost you anything between 40euro and 60euro. transformer will have cable on one side for connection to the main and socket to connect to the saw cable.

you can modernise this arrangement by permanently mounting the transformer on the saw (there is enough room on the end of the runner to mount it there), cut the cable to sufficient length and connect it to the transformer on 110v side, leave as is on 240v side.

YOU CANNOT REWIRE FROM 240V TO 110V, NOR FROM 110V TO 240V to do so you will need to rewire rotor as well as stator, and that unfortunately is not really easy job... i know i was doing that about 50 years ago...

if you find this answer helpful - do not hesitate to vote..

I have a Et 70115C Intermatic Timer, I want to install it on my Hot Water Heater, I have connected the 2 110V leads from my breaker to Terminals 1 & 2 and connected the two leads from the hot water...


A) 5 terminal ET70115C.
Voltage selector set to 240.

B) BUT you say you have 120Volts from breaker >>> confusing, so I'm proceeding on basis that you meant to say 240V from breaker.
Add a comment at any time.

C) Review timer:
5-terminal ET70115 timer has NO and NC terminals
NC is normally closed >> this terminal has power when timer is OFF
NO is normally open >> this terminals has power when timer turns ON
For water heater, you want NO terminal 4 so water heater turns ON when timer turns ON

D) Wire for 240Volt water heater

Two hot wires from breaker connect to terminals 1 and 2. This powers timer clock.
Jumper wire connects between terminal 2 to terminal 3. This sends power to the switch circuit.
Wires to water heater connect to terminals 1 and 4

E) 5-terminal timer turns off 1 hot wire to 240V water heater.
Turning off 1 hot wire will stop 240V circuit from working; Water heater thermostats also turn off one hot wire.
240V water heater has black and red wire.
Wire from terminal 4 should connect to Black wire on water heater.

Diagram shows two wires on terminal 1
Two wires on terminal 2
One jumper wire on terminal 3
One wire on terminal 4
Zero wires on terminal 5

I recently purchased a Pioneer SC-07 in North America(110v/60Hz) and need to convert it to use in Australia (240/50Hz) Am I able to purchase power supply to make this happen?


You need to locate a power converter. This is basically a trqansformer that will convert the 240V system into a 110V system. These are generally available anywhere where travel supplies are sold. You can also contact Pioneer and see if they have a conversion kit which would require the replacement or alteration of the internal transformer on the unit.

What do I need to use my Touchsmart tx2 in France. Do I need an adapter or transformer or both


You live in the US, right?
First check the voltage rating on your power supply / charger's primary voltage range. If it states around 110V only, then you need a transformer from 230V to 110V with an euopean plug. Make sure it's a real transformer (rather heavy, rated at ~100VA will be OK), and not a lightweight high-power adaptor, used for lamps, pressing irons, heaters and similar appliances.
If on your charger it states something like "90-240V", then it will cope with the standard european voltage of 230V, and the only thing you need is a travel adapter that will have an european plug on one side and an american socket on the other.
