Most likely the clock radio is damaged beyond repair. If it can be repaired it may cost nearly a much as a new clock radio.

Is a Hampton Bay HBD240A window A/C 120v or 240v?


I have never seen a 240-volt window A/C unit for the U.S. market. So, my guess is it's 120 volt.

The best way to verify this is to read the name-plate on the unit.

Another way is to look at the plug on the unit's cord. There are at least three types of plugs :: 120 volt, 15 amp; 120 volt 20 amp; and 220 volt. 120 volt 15-amp will fit a standard household wall outlet. The 120 volt 20 amp plug is similar to a 120 volt 15 amp, but will not plug inot a standard household outlet. The 220 volt plug is altoghether different.

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.

BOSE DOESNT TURN ON AFTER PLUGGING TO A 220-240V PLUG AND ITS ONLY 120 VOLTS


It sounds like you hav blown a fuse. Hopefully just a fuse, connecting a 110 to a 240 will hurt.
Most equipment survives short term high voltage but sometimes it just can't take it.
if it's not the fuse then it's very likely damaged the power supply which will require the expert help of a technician..
good luck !
Ps the 321 is a very nice bit of kit..
