Not a problem but you should use a surge protector as to have constant stable voltage

SOURCE: xbox plugged into a higher volt outlet

If you can obtain a new power supply unit(external, of course), sometimes referred to as a "Brick", that would be your best first test. However, if that doesnt work, then the unit is pretty much cooked. It is not recommended that you disassemble your unit and attempt to repair it yourself, though if its that broken, you dont have much to lose, unless it's under warranty. At that point, you'd be at a loss for parts, as they dont really sell Xbox parts in your local electronics store. So what you're looking at is either a fried brick, or fried internal hardware. Could be a cheap fix in the former, or a new unit in the latter, there. Check Ebay or similar sites to find a replacement external power unit. As with any tech problem, fix the cheap part first :)

SOURCE: I plugged a 110V power brick for my xbox 360 slim

Unfortunately, no. You will have to replace the brick. What happened was, when you plugged the brick into the 220 outlet, you doubled the amount of voltage and far exceeded the rated amperage of the transformer, causing it to burn up. Amperage is based on the amount of voltage divided by the amount of resistance, so if you double the volts and have a fixed amount of resistance, like in a transformer, you also double the amps. This excess caused your transfomer to blow. Sorry for your poor luck.

Rainbow e2 type 12 120v , accidentally plugged into 220v, would barely power up, possibly controller board defective?

probably need both as the extra 100 volts would burn the board and the motor
it is never advisable to buy electric equipment from another country because of the voltage differences but even then the plugs are made different so that the cord will not plug directly into the power outlet.

I accidentally plugged in my pulmoneb in a 220v outlet

plugging a 110v device into a 220v outlet is not likely, as the plugs are a different configuration. In the event that you somehow managed to do that, your device is probably fried, as that would be to much voltage. Hate to say it; but you are probably gonna need a new one

My xbox 360 has 110V. i have portable transformers that say 3A 250V, 6A 125V. i live in the philippines so our outlet has 220V. can i use it for my xbox 360 kinect?

I live in Norway and our outlet has 230V, and I can use my Xbox + Kinect without any problems. And basicly, the Xbox 360(both original and slim) can be used on outlets from 210V up to 240V safely.

Generator 4 prong220v outlet to 3 prong 220v plug

Go to your electricians store and ask if they have a converter plug, Don't go to a Homedepot type place, go to the specialty place where electricians go. Their depth of knowledge is way better.

How can i go from a 4 prong 220v outlet generator to a 3 prong 220v plug for oversea appliances

Last time I was in europe, they were using AC current at 50 cycles.If you check the specs. on your genset I think you will find it is a 60 cycle AC generator. If I am correct,you can slow down the genset to get the 50 cycles needed but then you would need to adjust the field excitation to get the voltage back up. Then change the outlet to a european type that you should be able locate on line or through an electrical supply house.

How to use it if we have 220V outlet?

If the AC unit is 110V then you must plug it into a regular 110V outlet. You cannot plug it into the 220V outlet. Either get a bigger 220V unit or use a 12 gauge extension cord to get it to a 110V outlet.

Changing a 3 prong plug into a regular outlet plug.

Your plug is for 220v and a regular wall outlet is 110volts. It simply will not work. You will burn out your dryer, and place yourself at risk of electrocution.
