Hi,

yes you can, you,ll have to purchase a stepdown Transformer, which is 220-240 Volts AC.
This will reduce the voltage from 220-110V. They are available but will need to be a good quality one ( usually the size Of the power Brick ) I,d suggest the worlds largest on-line marketplace :-) Or Radio-shack Maplins.

You can purchase a volt adapter (rather common in travel stores/airports) but over time the device's power-supply will wear out because of the frequency difference.

North America runs at 60hz
India runs at 50hz

India 220watts how I cAn use brother cs6000i sewing machine in India


The only way I know is a 110/220 volt transformer.
They are available in any electronics supply house.
As I remember the motors in these machines are only two lead, and they put the motor in for the country it will be sold in.
Dual voltage motors have three or four leads (wires).

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.

No, You'll burn up the appliance. When I was in Germany there were commercially available transformers to step the current down. The transformers plug into the 220 sockets and provide several 110 sockets to plug your appliance into. We purchased several transformers and ran our 110 tvs, kitchen appliances and other 110 appliances. The 220 sockets in Germany were different than 110 and 110 plugs sould not fit.

Hi...i have an New Revlon Hair dryer which was bought from US to INDIA n it is not working due to the difference in Voltage to that of US i guess....So could you please suggest me is can i get i repaired...


The voltage of the dryer you are having is 120 volt as compaired to the voltage in India 220~230 volt AC at 50 hz
You can use a simple thyristor voltage controller which will work out cheaper.
If not a step down transformer is needed to bring the voltage from 230~120 V.
As a transformer is expensive then it is possible to get the conversion done with a voltage reducer- solid state.

I bought a BOSE system in chicago. now in India not working


Electricity in India is 240 Volts, alternating at 50 cycles per second. You will require a voltage converter if you are carrying a device that does not accept 240 Volts at 50 Hertz. Check the voltage selector atthe back and set it to teh correct voltage - if not present buy an adaptor. Your component will have to be examined by an expert.

Altec Lansing VS4121, New Speakers, No Sound


If the speakers are brand new it makes me wonder how you know they worked fine in the States? I am also wondering how they were transported due to them probably being intolerant to extremes of temperature/humidity and probably vibration.

I am also wondering if you are using the correct supply voltage and type of supply.
If you are using the power adaptor supplied for use in the USA, it would probably be incompatible with your supply even though you are using a transformer.

If you are certain the speakers are in good order I suggest you obtain a power adaptor designed for your 220 volt 50Hz supply. I have browsed a little and cannot find a note of the power requirements for the integrated amplifier but this is presumably marked on the adaptor, the speaker or in the manual and so the power adaptor could be checked on and off load with a suitable voltmeter. I would be surprised to learn the supply is adequate

110 volt usa xbox 360 to work in a 220volt country


Hi,

The first possibility is that it was simply a faulty transformer, however the more lilkey problem is the transformer was not of a sufficient power to run the Xbox 360, you need to make sure that you buy a transformer that can supply at least 300w of power as this is what the xbox 360 requires, some cheaper models may have difficulty with this.

Further information about step down convertors can be read here

Thanks,
Geoff

XBOX 360 Power Adapter


What happened when you switched on the console? I think the 360 is supposed to run from 240v (at least that's what it says on the power brick) 220v may not be enough to power the console. You may have damaged the console but I'm unsure as I've never run into this situation before. You could try another power brick making sure you use the correct voltage. I'm sorry if this isn't much help but please rate if at all useful, thanks!
