see if you can identify the transformer and download the manufacturers data sheet

many times the transformer can be re-wired for 120/220 use on the primary side and the colors will be in the sheet

Many transformers have this feature because it is an aid to manufactureres toi just change a connection according to which country it is shipped to rather than use an entirely different part

all else fails contact the amp maker for suggestions

good luck

when looking at the transformer are there more than two connections on the AC side ?

If yes then it can be done but you have to contact the manufacturere for the connection diagram
