110 volt photo frame connected to 240 volts outlet in India.

I connected a 110 volt digital photo frame to 240 volt outlet in India without using a convertor thinking that the unit was 110-240 volt unit. One I switched on some fumes started appearing from the unit. What could have possibly gone wrong. Is there a way to fix this.

    Can the component that got fried be replaced with a new one. Which part could have possibly gone wrong. I am suspecting the adaptor that connects the unit to the power supply would take care of it. So if I replace the adaptor will it help me. Let me know if my thought is right.



    Thanks in advance.

    It sounds like you put 240volts(220v) across a 120v line,in this case the 120v has a nuetral wire which is neccesary for proper operation,the nuetral wire is a ground,You put 120v across that line (ie. 120v +120v =240v) that how it works in the US.There is a transformer inside the power converter and in some phones or a rectifer bridge to keep and make voltages usable for the equipment you are using,I am sure that it is burned up in what ever smoked,In most cases it is cheaper to replace then repair.

I accidentally plugged computer avr 220v to 110 could it affect my power supply


If the computer power supply is a 240 volt unit and you plugged into 110 volt mains the the computer should be OK.
Some power supplies have a voltage selection switch on the back of the power supply switch to 110 volts and it should work.
If the power supply is 110 volts and you plug it into a 240 volts mains then you will damage the power supply and possibly the computer as well.

How to convert 220 volts to 110 volts for the iPod Touch


<p> <p>The battery of an iPod Touch prepared for use in the United States is designed to be reloaded from the current supplied by a 110-volt electrical system. Power is transmitted to the battery charger with an iPod battery, which are connected via a USB cable and then connected to a 110 volt outlet. To use the power of a 220 volt outlet with an iPod Touch, set the current 220 volts to 110 volts. A conversion adapter voltage, also known as "Step Down Transformer," it is necessary and can be obtained from an electronics store, a hardware store and even some drug stores. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Place the 220-110 voltage converter card (aka, "Step Down Transformer") next to a 220 volt outlet. Plug the adapter into the outlet. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the end of a USB cable to the USB connector USB iPod charger iPod. Connect the other end of USB cable into your iPod's own socket on the bottom of the iPod Touch. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Plug the iPod into the 110 volt outlet in the battery adapter for the iPod Touch. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Unplug the charger from the iPod adapter and the adapter from the outlet when the battery is charged. Unplug the USB cable from the iPod charger and iPod Touch. <br />

I have a electric dryer Model WED5810SW0 THAT I WAS TOLD I COULD CONVERT TO 120V from 240v is this true and if so how do i do this?


If you consider doing this the first thing is SHUT THE MAIN BREAKER OFF. Use an auxiliary light source to see when working in a dead panel. Always keep in mind an ARC FLASH ACROSS HOT MAINS HAS ENOUGH HEAT TO PEAL THE SKIN OFF OF YOU. Before an explanation of how to do it you should keep in mind that this is for a single receptacle only. If any other receptacles are on the same circuit they will also be changed to 240 volt receptacles and if you plug any 120 volt device into them, the 120 volt device will be destroyed. That said OK, any 120 volt outlet can be changed to 240 volt by removing the 120 volt circuits neutral, re identifying the white wire with red or black phase tape and connecting it to a new 2 pole 15 amp breaker. The maximum that this circuit will now load up to is, on #14 wire at 80% = 12 amps at 240 volts. The 120V receptacle must be changed to a 15A - 240V receptacle so that 120 volt devices can not be plugged into it. Never use 2 single pole breakers together because code requires that on a fault trip both legs of the 240V circuit must be disconnected simultaneously. OR USED A Quick 220 Voltage Converting Power Supply
Voltage converter buying guide. Voltage Transformer Buying guide.Voltage converters also known as voltage transformers are devices that convert foreign electricity to power devices from different parts of the world. A step down voltage converter is a 220 to 110 volts converter. A step up converter is a 110 volts to 220 volts converter. Our 2-way converters are voltage transformers that convert power from both 220 to 110 volts and 110 to 220 volts. They also work with 100 volts, 110 volts, 120 volts, 220 volts and 240 volts. This model is a 2 way voltage converter / voltage transformer available in many different sizes including 100 watts, 200 watts, 300 watts, 500 watts, 750 watts, 1000 watts, 1500 watts, 2000 watts, 3000 watts and 5000 watts.

Hi .. am in a country that has 220V power outlets. What do I need to use my kitchen ais that has 120V, 60hz and a maximum of 330 Watts requirements?


You need a Step Down Voltage Converter (also called a Voltage Transformer)
which steps down 240, 230, 220 volts to 110 volts and
allows you to use 110 volts Devices from USA in 220 v / 230 v / 240 v Countries

Will it be okay to connect a 110 volt laptop to a 220 volt LCD projector?


What voltage is your mains supply?
The laptop's adapter should be a multi-voltage type 110 to 240 volts input.
If your mains is 110 volts AC then the 220 volt AC LCD projector won't work unless you connect it to a step up transformer (110 to 220 volt transformer).
If your mains supply is 220 or 240 volts then both the laptop and the LCD projector will work without any problems.

Why use 110 volt power tools and not 240 volt?


really, it's a matter of which power source you have most available. There are more places a person could use 110 versus 220, and support is better for them simply because they're more common. So if you have the 220 outlets in your shop or garage, then by all means, go for it, but don't be disappointed when you have to use them somewhere else and you can't find a place to plug them in.

A diagram of how to wire a 220 volt outlet from two 110 volt outlets.


You can't really do that. The two 110 outlets probably come for the same 'leg' of the 240. If you check them with a meter, there will be '0' volts between the two hot wires. So, they have the same 'potential'. You need a regular 240 volt circuit from a double pole breaker that is rated for the wire size that it's feeding. 20 amp-#12 ; 30 amp- #10 etc.
