Hello all:

Hopefully someone can help me with this! I purchased an Akai S950 from Ebay UK, not realizing that the power supply required 220-240V. Despite buying a converter box ( ... UTF8&psc=1), I cannot get the machine to turn on (I live in the USA).

Does anyone have a solution to this problem? I would hate to have to sell the S950 now.

Many thanks!!!

What did you guys end up doing?

I am in the same boat. 220v s950 in USA, and no power cord. It's got this input for the power (with 3 prongs), but the uk version is usually 2 pronged.. so I'm confused what kind of power cord to get..?


I have a step up transformer, so hopefully that works. I don't get why yours didn't work with one. Did you ever get it working?
