Hi Gerhard,

Thanks for that info! I learned something new
I actually thought you could only use the standard Fidelity adapter (or an equivalent one with same output current, and Amper). Interesting stuff!

Thanks,

Ismenio

Hello,

the voice-sythesizer feature only works if you use an AC (alternate current) adapter. (Not DC - direct current).

Greetings, Gerhard

Hi Dany,

I confirm that US Fidelity Computers can talk if they are plugged with French power supplys, so like Mike and Ismenio said, the problem must be in the computer itself.

Best,
Alain

Dany,

I have a spare unit that I was going to use for an experiment. You’re welcome to use it for parts as it is working. I have to double check on that but I think it is working fine and it’s talking! Also if you’re not comfortable replacing parts or playing with a soldering iron I can do it for you. Like Mike said, if the problem is with the wires and the speaker that’s easy to fix but if you have a problem with the circuit board you can use mine.

Let me know.

Hi dany

In England we can get USA to UK adaptors. Maybe  there is something similar available in the beautiful Alpes Maritimes?

The fact that your Voice Chess Challenger works with the universal adaptor to play chess suggests that the speaker is the problem. I have found them not to be very reliable. Perhaps the wires to the speaker are detached?

You can open the case up and have a look. The case is held together with screws which are usually hidden by the felt pads the VCC stands on. It will do no harm to check whether the speaker has come loose and the wires detached.

Good luck
Mike
