Re: Purchased in Australia-can I use in USA? Is it dual...
Most printers will work quite happily on 110 or 240V but you will need an adapter for the US power point. Try Tandy of **** Smith. Note that the adapter doesn't change the voltage in anyway it just makes the plug fit.
There will be a sticker or engraved fine print next to the power socket or on the bottom of your devices that will say what voltages it is compatible with. If you're unsure don't take the risk.Have a great trip!
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

The 790cc shaver has a dual voltage charger and will work with any country's voltage. However, it will almost certainly have a North American plug if purchased in the US. Therefore, you will need a simple plug adapter. You can see one at shaveroutlet.com at the link below
Mains voltage in Australia is 230V 50Hz. Travellers from most nations in Asia, Africa and Europe should have appliances that work on the same mains voltage as Australia - therefore you will not need a voltage converter. Notable exceptions to this are Japan, USA and Canada which uses 100/120V 50/60Hz.
If your country does not use appliances within the 230V 50Hz mains voltage range, you will need to purchase a voltage converter. This will transform the voltage from the power outlet into one your appliance can use. You will also need a power adapter.
You will probably need a voltage converter. Unless you purchased the general export model with a switchable voltage power supply, your PMX2000 will have the power supply for the 120V 60 Hz electrical mains and a 10A H fuse. To confirm this, look on the back of the amp. I wish that I had better news for you. Cindy Wells
You have to check the working voltage of the adapter of you device. If it purchased from US then it will be 110V. I think the Line voltage in Australia is 220V.Also You have to check is there is any input voltage selector in the in its adaptor . If it there you have to change it to 220V. If there is no such selector then you have to buy a 220v to 110v converter .Then connect the out put of that converter to to your device. You can by this converter at any electronic spare part shope near to you. Or you have to by a new 9V 1.3Amps AC adaptor. When you going to by the converter or a new adaptor take the device. If so they will explain you how to connect the converter or adaptor . By changing a fuse you can't change the operating voltage. If The adapter is designed to use in 110V then the fuse will blow. If you change the fuse and make more experiment with it it will make the full system useless.
Did you check if it was a 110V machine before you purchased it??
USA appliances are 110V so good chance by plugging it in in Australia's 240V electricity supply without putting a voltage adapter between you've fried it.
Check the plate on the machine beside the power in point - if it says 110V then you are going to have to buy an adapter (try **** Smith) to use this machine in Australia. However, if you saw sparks then good chance you've fried something already in the machine.
There are a very few quality machines that were made with Dual Voltage such as some of the Elna Stellas and they have a switch in the base of the machine to switch. But certainly not all and you can assume that most appliances coming from USA would be made for 110V power supply only.
The only obvious problem is that a saw purchased in USA will have a 110 volt motor. Mains voltage in Australia is 220, so you would need to purchase a transformer in Australia to step the voltage down to 110.
