    I bought 15SS 110V recently and need to change it on 220V.
    Could anyone help with appropriate photo of jumper set J11 for 230V?

    Please see the photo 15ss for 110V

    Here is how the jumpers were set in the SS15 I had at home (original european 240V version):







    Hope this helps.

    I have just noted that I gave the wrong piece of info in my previous post. The jumper on the 220V SS30 connects pins 1 and 4, not 1 and 3 as I stated in my post.

    Here is a different angle which better shows that:



    I had also another SS30, this time mk 2, which was set to 240V, where the jumper connects pins 1 and 5:



    So it seems the correct pin settings are:

    120V: pin 1 and 3
    220V: pin 1 and 4
    240V: pin 1 and 5

    Pin 1 and 2 may be for 100V, but someone from Japan would need to confirm this.

    USE AT YOUR OWN RISK !!!

    So Terry's words looks like blowing a smoke...

    Quite possible, so try Adam's pin reading and see if it works for you, and hopefully he's right and you won't blow up anything.
