Is there a way to disconnect or bypass a low voltage shutdown operation? I have a factory made electronic shooting gallery (toy) that runs on 4 AA batteries. I want to run it to a steady 6VDC supply from a power converter that plugs into 110VAC so there is no more replacing the batteries. The target (receiver) has an on/off switch on the rear. If it is turned on, you can shoot the target all you want as long as it is consistent.
But if you leave the target ON and idle (don't shoot it) for more than a couple of minutes, it turns off. Turn the switch off and then on again and it works/receives the shots again. I have tried this with batteries and a steady 6VDC power supply and it continues to go off after non-use for a couple of minutes. I want it to stay on all the time, unless I flip the switch to the off position.
Could it be something different since it still has the same problem with a steady, unwavering power supply? Is there a way to bypass whatever is causing this?
