What i want to do is change the power supply unit in the console from 110v to 220v and change the capacitors for the clock . I need abit of info first.
1: Can i just swap the power supply in the unit to 220v ?
2: What capacitors / how many are needed for the clock ?

Update:

Took it apart.

The capacitor for the clock had been leaking so i removed it by wiggling it back and forth until it came off.

I believe you can just swap the PSU straight over. also the clock cap is only 1 cap. I would lookup a guide how to find out which one it is as I don't remember correctly

Yes you can but i belive you will need a 1.0 to 1.1 psu for it, I swapped a american dvt-4 from 110 to 220 so it's possible and the caps are the same as normal clock caps

There is a guy on ebay that has a power supply but im not sure what ver it is all i know is:

It’s from a PAL UK Crystal edition original Xbox console.

Also found these for the clock:
Eaton branded 2.5V 1.0F supercapacitor.

We always remove the caps, but where is the solution? I recall finding a non-volative suitable chip to replace the volatile memory in Pokemon GameBoy games. The problem here was that the in-game clock was broken.

The solution IMO is something that won't leak and corrode the board.
It could be a battery placed far enough away to prevent damage.
It could be an NTP server that the system reaches out to.
It could be BIOS that don't care about the time.
- Games might not like this :?

Looking back at this thread...

"Metalica Man X" says:
perhaps instead of installing a new battery for the clock, instead use of those slow drain caps

There's some interesting conversation in that thread
They're only instant discharge if there's enough load on them to discharge them instantly. You could use a low voltage capacitor with a decent capacitance. The big capacitor in the xbox only lasts a few days, though.

And some not so interesting conversation
don't know why it would not be keeping the Pokemon Gold Version Clock in memory...

I guess that's how we learn. Miss those days 😥

I will also echo the sentiment that you can just straight up replace the power supply.
Your motherboard expects certain voltages.
Its your power supply's job to convert to those voltages.
By "power supply" we mean the rightmost circuit board in your xbox, not any kind of external component.
