We are tring to switch the input voltage of a mag ballast from 120v to 220v.

Does anyone know how to do this on a quartzcolor compact. It is done by hard wiring on the inside. I believe that the Neutral line has to become hot by moving it to a different location.

I've talked to a couple of people on this and neither of them knew.

Thanks
Chris

Usual procedure for 120-240v switchable magnetic transformers is two primary windings in parallel for 120v, in series for 240.
