What could happen with CD player switching on power supply 220v instead needed 110v?


Feeding it with twice the voltage it needs to work on?
In the best case, only a fuse has blown. Worst case? The whole power supply has had a to high voltage, before the fuse blew. All components will be aged and can give up in a few hours, after the fuse is replaced, or in a few months.
It also could be there are already some defect components in the player.

I wish you luck and hope only the fuse needs replacement.

Blender was connected to 220V instead of 110V and ON button was pressed, I heard a sound and perceived burning smell, after opening the bottom i noticed a burnt component(Mica capacitor) with a diode...


More than likely you fried the boards and even if to change them out ,you still run the risk of electrical shock. My advice is to send it back to the company for repair or get a new one. Plugging a 110 unit into a 220 line has happened to me too! I still feel pretty stupid I did it, but stuff like this happens and it is good that you were not injured.

Plugged 110v dishwasher into 220v


When you have a 220v outlet there are two wires that both supply 110volts, thus the 220volt rating. 110volts uses 1 wire that supply's 110 volts and the other wire is a "neutral" what is a non current carrying conductor. In other words there is no 110 volts on the second wire. Most of the time if you supply a 110 volt appliance with 220 volts you most definately fry something if not everything. Probably the main thing that blew was the control panel be it a computer board, dial switch etc. Sorry for the bad news but it might be cheaper to replace the unit than having it looked at and repaired

What will happen if I plug my 110V tv into a 220V receptacle?


If you want to fry your electronics or appliances that's it's a sure way to accomplish that.
While appliance working ONLY at 220v will just not work or under perform (like a hair drier) when plugging electronic equipment that runds ONLY at 110v then that item will be "fried" as all its electric components will be burnt as it will receive twice the power that it was build to receive. Should that happen the safety switch on the 220v circuit where the item was MISTAKENLY plugged will be triggered (hopefully or there will be risk of fire and serious injuries, even death) and the power will be shut off. That's a major but possible mistake.
If traveling abroad those who come to US will unlikely damage their appliances (like electric razors) as they will receive less power (110v vs 220v) and usually these items are protected against these mistakes by the specifications of their own design. The opposite is not true of course as just mentioned above.
So do not play around with dangerous items please! ;) On a positive note though: Nowadays most appliances have dual power and should work whether plugged in a 110v, 60Hz (most common in US) or 220v 50Hz (most common in Europe). So nothing really happens... it just works as long as you have the proper adapters to plug the appliance to the different receptacles.
Note: One of the differences is that (without going into the math of it all), an appliance working at 110v will draw x2 times the power than it draws when working on 220v so if an appliance was drawing 3A at 110v it will only draw 1.5A when working at 220v.
Best.

Over-voltage connection - 220v - instead of 110v


That thing is fried.If you can do your own electronic repair,there are a few components where the plug comes in that would be cheap to replace.Without a solder gun and voltage meter though I would replace.

My subwoofer IC got burned because i accidentally plug it to a 220v power supply, mine is only 110v i want to know the IC# subwoofer.


Most likely what got burnt is the bridge rectifier in the power supply section of the electronic circuit. This usually takes the shape of either a single 4-legged IC, or a group of 4 rectifying diodes connected in a bridge configuration. If you disassemble the unit to which the power cord is attached & trace the circuit starting from the terminals of the power chord, you can easily identify it. You will need to replace the 4-legged IC or the 4 rectifying diodes.
You will also need to replace the fuse, since it is usually likely that it gets burnt if the unit is attached to 220V instead of 110V.
