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 :)

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.
