NO,No,No!!
IF you have only a 230 volt supply in your home then I assume that you are living outside of the USA, yes?
If so then you need a transformer of 120 volts to feed the motor and control systems AS WELL AS the 230 volt supply.
If your machine is a digitally controlled appliance then it is very possible that this will not work for you because the control system is cycle dependent and can only use a 60 cycle supply anyway.

Question is a bit vague, does this apply to your washer dryer? This seems to imply that the appliance will need to have the 240v option selected on the appliance before it's connected to 230v. It's NOT the same as a device which can accept between 110- 250 volts, it's 120 OR 240 ( 240 is to all intents the same as 230). My answer is NO

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.

Tries to reassemble the plug and rescrews tighten all the screws or supper glue it together again.If the power transformer charger it is a standard A/C plugin chargers,tries places like Walmart,Best Buy,Radio Shack or online shopping too like Amazon.com,eBay.com and the product manufacture too can buy the original transformer charger or a clone one should work too, if charger it have the same A/C input and output of the transformer charger plug in power like Amp,Voltages lable that in the transformer plug in part of the charger.

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

The fuse is intact but there is no output voltage


Is the 115 / 230 volt voltage switch in the back of most units in the proper position for your country's voltage? Also, are the wires from the on / off switch on the computer tight, in the proper place. Some use a direct on / off switch that breaks the mains line directly, some use a small momentary push switch that activates a switching circuit on the motherboard.
Just some thoughts.
Good Luck.

My computer will not come on , it is plugged the screem is in power save , it sound like it's dead, I have no solution can you help


Check the power supply first to make sure it hasn't gone bad. Note: I had a case where somebody changed the input voltage from 115V to 230V. It did not work on a 120 Volt outlet until I discovered the red slide switch on the back of the power supply was in the wrong position. Maybe somebody thought it was an on/off switch. It isn't often that people get off so easily, but it's worth a look.

(The voltage setting switch is next to the power cord socket, is generally recessed slightly so it's hard to mess with it. Usually it's colored red, but is sometimes black, and is always marked 115V in the correct position for U. S. operation. If it reads 230V that is the problem, unless you are outside North America and using 230 Volt power. In that situation setting it to 115V may cause major damage.)

Installing an 24,000btu air conditioner. The original wiring at that outlet has an double pole 20amp circuit breaker. The old air conditioner that was their was plug into an outlet box that sat on the face...


yes your ok if they say the unit doesn't need to be changed in the incomimg power from 208 up to 230 volts or vice-versa,normally they classify motors as120/208/ 230 /460 volts, instead of 120/240/480 volts,but all line voltage varies in this voltage range between 230 to 255 volts a.c. with a +10/-10 percent tolerance either way,and as long as the instructions dont say anything about changing motor connections your good to go, just look on the motor body if possible and make sure theres no wiring diagrams to change voltage,but i would say no in a package A/C like that, and as far as the current goes your good with the 20 amp tandem pole breaker,let me know if i can further assist you. thanks

Hi, I bought my samsung 2333 syncmaster in the U.S. but moved to New Zealand where the voltage is 230, can I use the monitor with a converter plug or with a NZ compatible cord?


Samsung 2333 have switching power supply and it can work from 100-240VAC 50/60Hz with out any modification or adaptors. Feel free to use it in USA or New Zealand. You need only to arrange plug converter. Check specifications on Page 49 of 2333SW user's manual available on: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/201694/Samsung-Syncmaster-2333sw.html?page=11#manual Samsung SyncMaster 2333SW User Manual Your Monitor Initial Settings

What is the power input voltage required to operate the phonic 1805x audio mixer? is this an AC, or DC input? unit missing power supply and needs to be bench tested for possible future use. no manual...


i have seen the manual. most mixers use ac mains supply with smps inside with +48V for phantom and ur mixer is one of those. u will see a three pin mains connector at the back. but phonic made these mixers for different countries. for us/canada 110~120Vac/60Hz - for uk/australia  230~240Vac/50Hz, europe/ asia 220~230Vac/50Hz.
Look for these or a voltage selector near the power input terminal. if u do not find any of these one sure way of finding which mains supply u should use is to open the case and look at the biggest rectifier filter capacitor on the smps board. 110~120V supply will have capacitors working voltage around 250Vdc and for the others around 400Vdc working voltage. (eg 1000uF, 250V or 1000uF, 400V)
so depending on the DC working voltage of the filter capacitor and country u either step up or step down the mains supply. 
18Vac supply will never work.!
the rated mains voltage sometimes are printed on the smps board itself. Hope this helps.
