If you are technically savvy, you could check for poofed components in the power supply. Possible bad parts include fuse, switching transistor(s), small resistors, and other components. Sometimes when one component fails, it will take some others with it, depending on the circuit design, and exactly how & what blows up. Electrolytic capacitors often ooze a bit, or bulge when they fail. If you see one like that, it should be replaced as part of the repair.

Blender was connected to 220V instead of 110V and ON button was pressed, I heard a sound and perceived burning smell, after opening the bottom i noticed a burnt component(Mica capacitor) with a diode...

More than likely you fried the boards and even if to change them out ,you still run the risk of electrical shock. My advice is to send it back to the company for repair or get a new one. Plugging a 110 unit into a 220 line has happened to me too! I still feel pretty stupid I did it, but stuff like this happens and it is good that you were not injured.

M-Audio AV20 smells like burnt

Yes, it is possible to burn an IC and not the fuse, because of Safety standards, the fuse has the function to avoid a possible fire, but it should deliver all the power needed by the circuit it is protecting, and that amount of power can burn, in this case, the IC.
From my technical point of view, there should not be a problem to connect the speaker to 110 V instead of 220 V, all that might happen is to have less power available at output, I have no idea about the reason of the burnt IC, but, as we all know, they (the IC's), don't need a reason to burn themselves whenever they decide to.
So, the next step, will be to replace the burnt IC, and that is not a simple task, you need a SMD station and some experience in doing such jobs.
Good luck and best wishes.

I accidentally plugged in epson nx110 to 110v when i shoudl have plugged it in 220v , burnt smell and no power at all

Not sure why it burnt going from 240 down to 110volts. The unit should not have worked. However, if it is a 110 volt machine and you plugged it into 240 volts... different story... At best you have blown the power supply board or board fuse.. At worst, the machine will be fried inside.

My charger is accidentaly connect into 220v and this is burn. im here in philippine. its this to repair and i use again...

Is this a 110Volt version that you plugged into 220v?

There is a ceramic Fuse inside the unit that might be blown. It is the first thing on the circuit board near the power cord connection.

Open the unit up and post a photo of any burned components ?

My system 110v mode i am connect 220v now not working my be what is the problem

your power supply is shorted.. make sure to connect your new power supply to the actual voltage .. 220V is for 220V input PSU.... if you connect your 110V PSU to 220V outlet... it will fry your power supply..

Whilst using my axis 9 it released a burning smell (rubber) and just turned off. Now it won't even turn back on and still has a cd inside.

bad capacitor on the inside of the unit.
usually the 10000uf 16v tall cap blue or black cap.
look for a bulge on the top.
replace it with a higher voltage cap.

Where is the circuit breaker or fuse on a Kenmore Gas Dryer?

no heat usually means your only getting110 volts into your need the full 220volts to run heaters....with voltage meter you checkwires on the plug OUTLET...or inside back cover REDwire to WHITEwire =110v.........BLACKwire to WHITEwire =110v.....REDwire to BLACKwire =220v. you probably have aBAD 220V. 30 amp circut breaker..or if still using FUSES one is burnt out (In house electric panel) or burnt off RED or BLACKwire in back of dryer.....
