Yes you can fix.
please go to repair personal with power adapter or buy same type one or by alternative power adapter but output must be same as the original and 220v as in .i think buying new one is a good idea.
Its dead, and whatever you do, DO NOT plug it into any power again, it could cause a fire so fast that you would be in mortal danger.
Most of the world uses 'real' levels of power, your american appliances cannot handle it.
Do you know A thing that there's inside some lighters, those lighters, I mean, it isn't a lighter stone, it's other kinda lighter, it's a lighter that you have to push the button and it gives a "shock" at the gas, and the fire come out, well, you need to disassemble that kinda lighter and get the thing that makes shock when you push it, and give a shock in your go pro by the usb, it works if you do correctly.
I have a broken gopro, and I just get the way to give shock and do it at the usb on gopro, and the gopro turns on!
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.
The power supply is bad. The transformer more than likely survived however some fuses and possibly filter caps could have been blown. Also some of the regulatory circuitry for switching or digital lines could have been damaged. This being said you should be able to get the amp working again without any problems.
Most generators have several circuits incorporated within the windings. There are usually two 115v windings, one or two windings that produce power and sensing voltage for the regulator that supplies power to the armature (produces magnetic force) and sometimes a 12v winding to supply power to charge the battery. The two 115v windings power one 115v plug each and together power the 220v plug. Each outlet has a breaker and or ground fault. Since the 115v plugs are working indicates that the 220v plug must have an open/broken wire or faulty breaker. Easy to check, however you must open cover to wiring compartment and trace wires. Should be easy fix. You do not have to start engine to find broken wire. Use ohm meter instead. With engine off, Insert probes into 115v plug and obtain ohm reading. Then insert probes into second 115v plug and obtain similar reading. Look for same reading at the 220v plug (remember 2 circuits of 115v, ground and neutral). Good luck with your repair and email if you have other question.
This is a bit of a guess, but a lot of "switching" power supplies are capable of using anything from 97 to 230 volts without using a switch to pre-set what you are going to plug them in to. That is a guess about why there is no switch, and if I'm right, it is likely that the capacitors in the power supply are...were...strong enough to survive with American voltage, but 220 is a bit too strong for their age. The repair requires parts and soldering.
I'd like to know the real answer if you eventually get it fixed. Please post it here.
Car subs can NOT be connected to 220v. Not directly anyway. You will have to get an amp that can run on 220v & then connect it to this sub. Good luck finding a home audio amp that will run the sub though it's really hard. If you look at home theater setups you will find that all the subs have their own built in amps that are really hard to get a hold of seperately.
