I have a friend who lives in the UK and was wondering if my spare SNT-0 would work across there. I know their are models that have the dual voltage switch, but where would I look to find that switch on my machine...if in fact it has one.

If it is actually the multi-voltage model, the definite way to verify that is to open the rear cover and have a look at its main transformer.
If there are multiple taps for input (100,110,120,200,220,240 v, sort of) then you're good to go. [Smile] That will be only a matter of changing the mains input tab to the proper ones.

The more concerning is the mains frequency. USA's mains is 60Hz, while UK's mains is 50Hz. If there's no proper motor pulley for the rated frequency, the projector will be waaaaaay to slow (around 20 fps) there. [Frown]

Just a lone collector from a faraway land...

You can change frequency by swopping drive belts. See page 25 on the Owner's Instruction Manual available on the Manuals section of this Forum.
