I assume that's a typo and you mean 120VAC power port, not 12V -- if you really meant 12V absolutely not!

While it's becoming increasingly common for electronics to support both 120V and 240V into the same port, I would still check the manual before sparking it up. You didn't mention which it happens to be, but your TV has a make and model, right? In this day and age it's way too easy to find the manual on the web and know for sure. What possible incentive could you have to risk a guess? If you guess wrong you'll destroy the TV, and even run the risk of injury and/or fire.

So the best advise is RTFM. :-)

The 12v & 240v switch is to change voltage supplied to the camper. You use the 12v if you are running things from the battery; you use the 240 when you're connected to what the US calls "shore power" or "land power"

How can i convert the dremel 8200 cordless to corded 12 v DC

Why bother? A corded 12v will have barely adequate power for a number of jobs. If you're going to corded, then a 240v would be my preference, keeping the 8200 for jobs where the cord will be a nuisance.

INPUT: 100-240V ~ 1.0A MAX
50-60VA, 50-60Hz

I Googled the part number and found that several power supply dealers sell this unit.
The Jameco Company sells a power supply with this model number.

Fried HD?

Yep, it's probably fried, a little too much juice went in.
While the drive itself might be ok, the external casing is another story.

Try opening the case and removing the HD and plugging that in on your PC directly as a slave drive.
