Technical question about using an A/C adapter

Hi, I bought a japanese VB on ebay. It came with the connector for a A/C adapter. I have a universal adapter I want to use with it, but I dont know the right settings because everything is in japanese.

Does anybody know what polarity and Voltage to use? I think there should be a little icon on the US version of the VB or maybe even in the instructions. But im not sure about that.

The icon should look a bit like this (this is only an example)
EDIT: Actually, I just found out this is the correct setting. Check the post below.

Open in new window


Any help is appreciated.

And nice site btw. See you around.

Yeah, all the VB's used 10 volts. I set my universal adaptar to 9 Volts which also works, my adaptor didnt have a 10 volt setting.

Just dont go beyong 10 volts, and you should be fine.

If you have a battery pak, you could get a 9-10V AC adaptor and wrap the wires around the +/- connectors the batteries normally attach to.

Its not the prettiest method, but at least you save on batteries. ;)

Probably not expensive, just getting harder to acquire.

Check your local electrical shop for a universal a/c adaptor.

They're not that expensive, and u can use em for pretty much every portable console thats currently out.

just for future refrence aaa-d batteries are all 1.5 volts, so 6 batteries = 9 volts.
