I have a older boze disc player which I bought in the U.S.. It has a U.S. Two prong plug. Can it run on U.K current or do I need converter as well as a two prong strip?

It depends on the voltage the disc player was designed to work with and there should be an identification label somewhere on the outside stating the voltage and the current it requires.

110/120 volt AC supplies used to be common around the world as did local direct current supplies but 220/240 volt AC supplies are gradually becoming the international standard.

lots of appliances used to be truly universal but as local direct current supplies are now virtually extinct, modern appliances are either dual voltage or single voltage.
Many small and portable appliances have been produced to work on either voltage - mostly selectable by a barely exposed switch and sometimes requiring adjustment to be made by removing a cover plate. Modern electronics has sometimes provided an automatic adjustment.

Most larger appliances are a single voltage type designed to work where they are sold. The information you require is contained in the instruction manual for the appliance and on the identification plate.

If your disc player is suitable for only a 110/120 volt AC supply you will need a small auto-transformer to make our 220/240 volt AC supply suitable for use.
If your disc player will operate on our voltage, all you will need to do is cut off the 2-pin plug and fit a British 3-pin plug and fit a suitable (3 amp) fuse.

Blown fuse again and again, mistakenly plug in 220 then blew the fuse because its power rating is 110

OK now so you plugged it into 220 when it is supposed to work with 110 and after you replace the fuse it still blows again this may be because of the high voltage the voltage could have caused the insulation on the wire in the transformer to burn off resulting in a short thus lowering its resistance and increasing current flow which will cause the fuse to blow over and over again no matter how many times you replace it . so my advice is to not plug it on again as it poses a risk of fire

My sony DVD player DVP was plugged in to 220 v. instead of 110., it malfunctioned. what ot do?

If you're really lucky then you've blown a fuse inside the unit in the power supply ... If not then you night need to consider shopping for a new unit.
If it's a fuse, then take it to a repair shop, if it's not, then take it out to the dumpster :) Sorry.

My Panasonic S35 DVD player was plugged in to 220 volts instead of 110 volts. The problem is just after replacing two (2) capacitors, diode, and fuse. the unit was accidentally plugged in again to 220...

If the unit is designed to operate at 110V AC, then plugging it into 220V or more without the appropriate multi-current (240-110V) transformer and relative voltage switching circuitry to the PSU (to accommodate the higher current load) is very dangerous. Because of the excess voltage applied, the DVD player's power supply cannot handle this, is basically destroyed, and therefore it would be uneconomical/expensive to repair; although due to the possible extent of the over-voltage damage, I doubt it would be repairable.

To put it bluntly, the whole unit would be a write-off, as the damage to the power supply may have also compromised many of the components on the motherboard. It wouldn't be cost-effective to replace every single part in the circuit. You most likely will need to buy a new player (or find a similar used working one which is not damaged for a cheaper price if that's what you want) and if you do, check to make sure it is a mulit-system/multi-voltage model (can operate between 110V and 240V AC, and is capable of doing so SAFELY) to prevent a disaster like this from happening in the future.

The risks of electrical incidents like this are far too great to even contemplate. One can be lucky sometimes.

Hi I got a dvd portable player Sony DVP-FX950 from the US but I live in the UK, how can I make it work here?

you will needs a power transformer adaptor form 220 volt to 110 volts at 50 hz at the out put/because current there is 220 /50 hertz and us is 120 at 60 hertz..
hope that will help you

Inadvertently plugged in device to a 220 outlet verus a 110.

I'm not sure about this model but most have a "universal switcher" power supply inside that works up to 220 volts.

Also ( with NO power connected ) take the cover off and check for a glass fuse ( 20mm long) . See if that has blown . Radio Shack has plenty of fuses

Accindentally pluged it to 220 volts instead of 110 volts

hello , i suggets you replace the power supply with a 110 v input boerd .
or do this if the damage is big replace the all sytem with a new one then get a voltage step down ie 220 to 110.

thank you
