If you can obtain a new power supply unit(external, of course), sometimes referred to as a "Brick", that would be your best first test. However, if that doesnt work, then the unit is pretty much cooked. It is not recommended that you disassemble your unit and attempt to repair it yourself, though if its that broken, you dont have much to lose, unless it's under warranty. At that point, you'd be at a loss for parts, as they dont really sell Xbox parts in your local electronics store. So what you're looking at is either a fried brick, or fried internal hardware. Could be a cheap fix in the former, or a new unit in the latter, there. Check Ebay or similar sites to find a replacement external power unit. As with any tech problem, fix the cheap part first :)

What will happen if inserted the 110v input d-link wireless router power supply to a 220v outlet? does my router busted or just the power supply?


Most likely you have damaged not only the power supply but also the D-Link wireless router unless the power adapter is a multi-voltage power adapter. Check the label on the power adapter and if the input voltage is a fixed 110 volt power supply you are in trouble.
You can try getting a 110v power adapter and connect it into the D-Link and if it works then you are lucky.

I accidentally plugged in my pulmoneb in a 220v outlet


plugging a 110v device into a 220v outlet is not likely, as the plugs are a different configuration. In the event that you somehow managed to do that, your device is probably fried, as that would be to much voltage. Hate to say it; but you are probably gonna need a new one

I bought my kitchen aid at the US it's 110v. I plugged it at 220v. Now it still works but not on bread mix


A device which is designed for 110 volts MUST NEVER be used into a 220 volt outlet. This can damage the unit and make the motor winding burnt.
You need to buy a STEP DOWN TRANSFORMER with a good rating (220volt to 110 volt) so that the unit works perfectly without damaging the motor.

How to use it if we have 220V outlet?


If the AC unit is 110V then you must plug it into a regular 110V outlet. You cannot plug it into the 220V outlet. Either get a bigger 220V unit or use a 12 gauge extension cord to get it to a 110V outlet.

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.

What will happen if I plug my 110V tv into a 220V receptacle?


If you want to fry your electronics or appliances that's it's a sure way to accomplish that.
While appliance working ONLY at 220v will just not work or under perform (like a hair drier) when plugging electronic equipment that runds ONLY at 110v then that item will be "fried" as all its electric components will be burnt as it will receive twice the power that it was build to receive. Should that happen the safety switch on the 220v circuit where the item was MISTAKENLY plugged will be triggered (hopefully or there will be risk of fire and serious injuries, even death) and the power will be shut off. That's a major but possible mistake.
If traveling abroad those who come to US will unlikely damage their appliances (like electric razors) as they will receive less power (110v vs 220v) and usually these items are protected against these mistakes by the specifications of their own design. The opposite is not true of course as just mentioned above.
So do not play around with dangerous items please! ;) On a positive note though: Nowadays most appliances have dual power and should work whether plugged in a 110v, 60Hz (most common in US) or 220v 50Hz (most common in Europe). So nothing really happens... it just works as long as you have the proper adapters to plug the appliance to the different receptacles.
Note: One of the differences is that (without going into the math of it all), an appliance working at 110v will draw x2 times the power than it draws when working on 220v so if an appliance was drawing 3A at 110v it will only draw 1.5A when working at 220v.
Best.

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


no heat usually means your only getting110 volts into your dryer.....you 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.....

I have plugged wii in 220 volt recepatacle though it was 110 volt what to do


Hello,

There are two possible scenario's when you accidentally plug a 110V device in a 220V outlet:
1: The power supply to the device you plug in gets fried. this is your best case scenario. See if you can borrow a Wii power supply from a friend and test your console with this power supply. If this works, you just need a new power supply and all is well.
2. Your Wii gets fried. Worst case scenario: your Wii got fried. If it is still in warranty, see if they will cover this damage under the manufacturer warranty, if not, I am afraid you will either need to pay for repairs or buy a new console.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but plugging a 110V device in a 220V outlet generally will fry one thing or the other or even both.

Thanks for using the FixYa forums!

Read the back of the transformer and see what the output voltage is. Find another transformer with something within 1-2 volts of what the broken transformer is. If you are lucky you will find one with the same size plug, if not you will have to change plug. Any transformer within 1-3 volts over will work.
Most people have them in junk drawres.
