Question about Sony (ICFCS10IPBLK) Clock Radio for iPod

3 Answers

I bought the Sony ICF-CS10iP Clock Radio in Canada, so it comes with a power adapter for 120v ac. I now want to use it in Hong Kong, which is 240v ac. Does the original adaptor transform 110v ac to 240v ac or to 3v dc? I can buy another adaptor to convert the 240 to 120, but I'm wondering if the original adaptor converts 110 to 240, can I just cut the original adaptor off and connect directly to the 240v ac? The crucial question is what does the original adaptor do: convert to 240ac or 3v dc?

    No, the adaptor doesn't say what it adapts. I took it to an electronics store and was told that the adaptor converts 120v ac to 3v dc. I then asked if I could just cut the Canadian adaptor off and fit a local 240v ac to 3v dc adaptor. The guy said yes, but you'd have to go inside to make the connections and that was a bit risky. Anyway, I've taken the easy way out and bought an adaptor for 240v to 120v ac and it works perfectly fine - just a bit bulky with the Canadian adaptor and the Hong Kong adaptor.

The adapter indicates 120v~. The power cable leads to a door held on by a screw. Behind is where the A/C adapter plugs in. I have seen the same product available in another country that is 220v. If you can find the 220v version of the power adapter, it will be an easy swap.

    I have discovered that the clock is set only to specific time zones in the USA. If you use an iPhone it will sync the time, but it will offset the time zone you are at in relation to the time zone set in the clock by the iPhone DSappli app. My suggestion is to set the clock to a time zone exactly 12 hours away. For example, if you are in Hong Kong (UTC +8:00), set it to UTC -8:00 (California time) and regard PM as AM, and PM as AM.

My answer may be too late for you; however, it's for other who would have similar questions. You cannot connect this adapter directly to a 220v outlet. The backup battery is 3v and that's only to maintain the time & preset stations.

The adapter's conversion to DC power could be 6v and that's my assumption. In India, any electrical shop technician can wind a transformer for 220v for just $5. May be, in Hong Kong or China, they do it that cheap.

It will say on the adapter which voltages it is compatible with.
If it is not listed, be sure to get a voltage converter from an electronics store.

If you're lucky, you blew a fuse. If you're not, you blew a transformer. Either way, it will need to go to a service center. However, ask for an estimate as it may be cheaper to just replace it than fix it.

Use Sony ICF-C1IPMK2 in Europe


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.
