Question about Pioneer VSX-453 Receiver

1 Answer

Connecting a 110 volt unit to a 220 volt outlet without a step-down transformer!? The safety fuse (glass body) looks fine and intact, so what could be blown, and can this be a cheap and easy fix?!? Thanks!

What do i have to do to plug my 110 air conditioner into where my 220 window unit


You need a step down transformer, to convert 220V to 110V. You can't just plug the 110V A/C unit in directly unless it is clearly marked as being suitable for multi-voltage supply (110V - 220V input).

Such a transformer has to be of sufficient capacity to handle the current, or wattage, that will be required. The Frigidaire unit in your question is a 3.5 kW cooling capacity, so the transformer would need to be about the same, ie for a 10A supply at least. They are quite big boxes, about $120.

You would put this in the roof or in a cupboard.

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 plugged 110 volts xbox 360 into 220 volts outlet. and it's dead. what will i do?


Unless the item has internal fuse, it is burned up.
Look for product manual.
Many times, there is a glass fuse rated for unit voltage.
Replace fuse.
Each fuse has specific markings.

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.

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

I have philips hts8100 from usa , can I plug it in 220 volts or 110 volts


The Philips HTS8100 is designed to use 120 Volts AC. You could use a 220 Volt AC to 120 Volt AC Step Down transformer to power this using a 220 Volt outlet. Here is what you will need:

Our window AC unit stopped suddenly. Completely dead. The outlet has power. It's a 220V unit. LG window AC LW2510ER Any advise what it could be? Does it shut down when it's 100F outside? Thanks...


No - the outside temperature will not shut the AC down.
You say the outlet has power? Does it have the needed 220 volts? Most of the time 220 volts is on one switch, (that operates both 110 volt legs of power at the same time). - but sometimes each leg is on a separate breaker and if "one leg" trips you will still have power at the outlet (110 volts) but you won't have the needed 220 volts. While this is not likely - it is possible - so I would want to test the outlet with a voltage tester and determine the voltage. You might try checking in your breaker box and seeing if another breaker (110volt) is tripped. The same thing applies if you are dealing with fuses instead of breakers - determine the voltage at the outlet - and if you don't have 220 and only have 110 then look for a blown fuse or as I said above - a breaker tripped.
If you do have 220 at the outlet and nothing is running - I would be looking for an inline fuse of some sort within in the unit. Many of the newer units have them and they are usually easy to spot and all you have to do is to unscrew the fuse holder and replace the blown fuse. Be sure to have the power off when handling fuses.
Note: Be aware that while breakers/fuses can trip and blow without a serious problem going on - they (blown fuses/tripped breakers) are usually a sign of something significantly wrong with the unit.
Good Luck!

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.

I need the instruction manual for a Sears submersible pump model M4D02B-01. I would like to use it to pull water from a lake and about 25 feet in elevation. It is rated at 230 volts but I currently only...


Assuming that your Sears submersible pump Model
M4DO2B-01 can pump water at more than 25 feet
elevation. You can run it even without a manual. Just connect your discharge hose up to the point of discharge. Use a 220/110 volts transformer with a rating of at least 3KVA. Connect your 110 volt line to 110 outlet of the transformer and the submersible pump to 220 outlet of the transformer. This 3KVA transformer can handle up to 1HP pump.Send your
e-mail for further assistance.

HP laptops power supply


Well, as a rule for electronics:
The United States and Canada use 110-volt electricity.
Most countries outside North America use 220-volt electricity.
Unless your appliance is dual voltage, you need to use a "converter" or a "transformer" to change the 220-volt electricity into 110-volt electricity in order to use a 110-volt appliance.
If your appliance is dual voltage, you can switch it to work on 220-volts, without a transformer or converter.

HOWEVER

Desktop units have a selector switch for 110 / 220 volts., which is done away with in the case of laptop one's which sense the input voltage and regulate accordingly.

I think your main concern is just that you have an adapter for the plug to go into the wall outlet.

Hope that helps :)
