How long will a 28v drill last with a 36v battery

Worrng fully supply 220 volt in xerox 7345 110v now this machine is showing error like 009-383,380,382 and after NVM reset one or two copy diagonal bar type print come out and then code is come -

The last time I looked at one of these power supplies I'm sure you had to move over a small sheet metal cover but putting 110volt onto a 220 volt power supply shouldn't cause a problem the other way probably would. However as you seam to get prints out of the machine I don't think you have a power supply problem.
Further investigation needed.
Good Luck.

Conection 220volt in A 110VOLT

You've made a great mistake indeed. Contact any service technician. With some sets, there will be a protection fuse [over voltage protection]. If your set have been included this protection device, your luck. If not, you might have to replace the power supply section to this device.

We bought electrolux washing machine ewf 85761 in penang malaysia, before we brought on board ship test is done on the store,the washing machine is in good condition..Then we brought the washing machine on...

Just as a wild guess, the control circuit in the washer may not work with 60 Hz shipboard power. The motor probably is not affected. You must be getting awfully tired of hauling that washer back and forth!

Washing machine w/ 110v plug in to 220v


Never plug a 110 volt anything into a 220 volt supply and never plug a 220 volt anything into a 110 volt supply. They are just not designed to do so. Their electronic's power supply and their motors are specifically for the specific voltages. Changing the plug at the end does absolutely nothing.
I just hope I have got to you in time!!!

Plugged a 110 volt kenwood receiver accidentally to 220 volts

Considering 220 and 110 systems have different receptacles, you worked at doing this.
Since it is already inoperable, you may as well remove the housing and inspect the guts. If you see burned traces or boards, don't bother to have it repaired.
If you see a fuse in a clip, you might replace it once, two would be the waste of the second fuse.
