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.

WhAT HAPPENS IF I plug a 110 volt machine to a 220 outlet

Normally the plug connector would not fit, they are different. But for some reason, if you have one that takes 110 and you plug it into 220, there will be af ire. You will burn through the circuits immediately and short the entire thing out at every solder point. The real problem is the wattage. The watts are pushed with 220 volts of fource, which will fry your 110 setup.

Turned it on for the first time this year. After a few minutes it would stop working but all the light indicators are still on. I made sure that the energy saver is off, that is is getting the full 220...

Yes, it could very well be a burned capacitor or a burned wire from over heating, Best advice is to unplug the unit and do not attempt to use it, until it is repaired.

I Accisentally plugged My 110 Volt xbox 360 into a 220 volt outle

The reason for this is the power overwhelmed the circuit boards and burnt them out you may need to talk to someone up the Game shops or go to and see what other people think. even if microsoft tell you to DONT send it in for repair as it gets rattled in the post and rattling the console causes the Open Tray Error an extremley annoying error. hope this helps

Can i use an Xbox 360 bought in USA in India - given the voltage conversion required? would there be any seperate adaptor available for 220 volt usage in India

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

Blows fuses

I found a post where someone replaced several capacitors with ones he described as titanium and a higher voltage like 100 v rating rather than 50 as oem. He states no more problems. I found this site while searching again. I also found a free download pdf repair manual from JBL - site defined as Harmon, and they show revised parts replacements for these caps - 100 volt. I just bought a used one and not hooked up as yet, but I plan to use slow blow fuses and possibly a little higher rating - not much though, and I believe there is a ceramic type - color solid white - that may withstand the apparant surge. Theres also a recent post somewhere for sale of the amplifer board... 64smi or something like that. Hope this helps. Ken
