Question about Sennheiser RS 110 Consumer Headphones

2 Answers

Bought my headphones in South Africa, now living in the UK. My AC adaptor to power my charger of my headphones is not functioning properly. Could this be caused by the incorrect power adaptor, as it wants to charge but seems as if not sufficient power. Not sure if it is the charger itself or if a UK compatible adaptor will do the trick. Your advice will be much appreciates

Hi, the voltages and frequencies are the same in the UK as they are in SA, though different style plugs are used. If you are staying in the UK I would tell you to cut the SA plug off and fit a UK plug.
There are other problems that may cause charging problems, the main one could be the batteries, how long have you had these headphones (could the rechargeable batteries need replacing), li-ion and ni-mh do not last forever (normally 3-4 years).
If you are using a plug adapter this may be causing a transmittance problem.
If you still have problems, a new charger should be easy enough to source on ebay.

Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. You can check if the power output in South Africa and UK is the same. If you have 110 or 240V in africa check if the Voltage in UK is 110 or 220V aswell. If it is the same it only means that the adaptor is bad. If you can go to a store in UK find an adapter that is compatible with the headphone you can test it and see if it will work.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I live in South Africa and my son has brought back a Panasonic shaver from the USA. Can our std 220v power outlet be suitable to charge the shaver? The power pack only mentions 120v input AC?


If the power supply that came with the unit says only 120V, you must use a voltage converter with the unit. If you plug the charger into your 220V system without a convertr, it will damage the charger

US Nintendo DS-Lite with converter problems in South Africa


Hi,

It should work straight out with a step down transformer. That is of course if the mains supply in South Africa is 240 240 and the unit being American is 110.

This is of course not unless it was initially tried without a transformer or stepdown converter which would mean that the charger/adapter has been fried and therefore damaged.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Hey thomas952,

While they may not be region-coded, PS3 consoles and games sold within the United States are going to be NSTC compliant, instead of the PAL format used in the United Kingdom and South Africa. What this means is that in order for any game to display properly (or even operate) it must be purchased from the same region of the world as the console itself - NTSC games can only be played on NTSC consoles.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
