Jumper wire ?missing? MX5050 BII 2
« on: February 10, 2012, 12:25:03 AM »
While switching speed modes, cleaning, etc. etc. (it never really stops, does it?) I noticed there is a jumper wire (WHITE in pic) on the pcb above the supply reel motor and NOT one on the take-up motors pcb. Jumper goes from "Line" to "117V" (choices of 100, 117, 220 & 240 volt). Is this correct??
Thank you,

Yes. At least that's how my machines are wired.
