If you did not connect the computer to a 220V power-source, i.e., you connected to a 110V source, then you probably are OK, except that the computer-components are probably only getting "half" the power that they normally get.

Turn the computer off, and reset the switch to 110V.
Turn the computer on, and it may start properly.

If all else fails, then take the computer to a qualified technician, for more trouble-shooting, i.e., replace the power-supply, or replace the motherboard, or may even replace _more_ than one component.

This is not a question about a dryer! I have a Sears 10 inch Radial Arm Saw. How do I switch the motor from 220 volts to 110??


If the motor is a dual voltage type the instructions might be printed inside the motor cover or alternatively in the saw handbook.

It is important to find the correct instructions and to follow them exactly.

How to convert 220 volts to 110 volts for the iPod Touch


<p> <p>The battery of an iPod Touch prepared for use in the United States is designed to be reloaded from the current supplied by a 110-volt electrical system. Power is transmitted to the battery charger with an iPod battery, which are connected via a USB cable and then connected to a 110 volt outlet. To use the power of a 220 volt outlet with an iPod Touch, set the current 220 volts to 110 volts. A conversion adapter voltage, also known as "Step Down Transformer," it is necessary and can be obtained from an electronics store, a hardware store and even some drug stores. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Place the 220-110 voltage converter card (aka, "Step Down Transformer") next to a 220 volt outlet. Plug the adapter into the outlet. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the end of a USB cable to the USB connector USB iPod charger iPod. Connect the other end of USB cable into your iPod's own socket on the bottom of the iPod Touch. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Plug the iPod into the 110 volt outlet in the battery adapter for the iPod Touch. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Unplug the charger from the iPod adapter and the adapter from the outlet when the battery is charged. Unplug the USB cable from the iPod charger and iPod Touch. <br />

I want to hook up a 220v motor and a 110v motor with one switch


this will be interesting on one switch
110 volts motor running on 220 volts will end in a flash and plenty of smoke
and a 220 volts motor running on 110 volts will over heat and smoke as well
unless you have some form of transformer to one of the motors it is a recipe for disaster

How to fix couple of DELL desktops where I plugged them into 220 volts Power supply when they were set for 110 volts? More details below.


you could try replacing the power supply. if it still does not work, you probably fried the processor or motherboard. (or both). just make sure the replacement power supply has the same type of connectors on the power leads to the motherboard, hard drive, etc.

I plugged my 110v KG25H3XWH mixer into a 220v outlet via a voltage transformer and turned it on. It immediately sparked, popped, emitting a burnt smell and tripped the circuit breaker. Is it possible for...


First here is the link to a good suuplier with OEM parts for 110 and 220 volt http://www.appliancezone.com/SearchProducts.aspx?ID=9707627&x=12&y=7

you can change any KA mixer from 110 to 220 and 220 to 110, you need the armature stato phase control board and speed swith for eith conversion, the 220 madel number or 220 model has a letter in front of the ka which is the indicator for 220 volt go to http://www.kitchenaid.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/OCManualsLiteratureSearchResultView?catalogId=10552&langId=-1&storeId=10202 for a exploded parts list and part numbers look any where for a KA 220 volt model and you can find the same thing

How do I know if my Hotpoint oven 920 years old0 is on a 220 0r 120 line? The serial plate says 120/220.


An oven uses both 120 & 220 -- actually it would be 120 volts and 240 volts or nominally, 110 volt and 220 volt.

The 120 is used for the lights. The 240 is used for the heating elements.

A 240 volt breaker (nominally 220 volt) -- supplies both 120 and 240 volts depending on how the supply is connected to the appliance.

There will be a 240 volt (nominally 220 volt) breaker in the main panel for the oven. This is two 120 volt breakers side-by-side with their toggle switches connected together with a strap across the top of the toggles.

I cant plug my 120v input vamp2 power adapter into a 110v output voltage regulator its dont works


I don't understand why you are plugging this into a 110 volt regulator.. If by chance you are trying to run this from 220 volt power, you DO NOT use a regulator or a converter intended to run hair driers and appliances. You need to use a step-down transformer from 220 to 110 or 240 to 120.
The V\Amp2 is a switching regulator and it will NOT like to be run from another switching regulator such as found in those cheap appliance type convertors.

Here is the type you need: http://www.world-import.com/tc-100a.htm

Well, as a rule for electronics:
The United States and Canada use 110-volt electricity.
Most countries outside North America use 220-volt electricity.
Unless your appliance is dual voltage, you need to use a "converter" or a "transformer" to change the 220-volt electricity into 110-volt electricity in order to use a 110-volt appliance.
If your appliance is dual voltage, you can switch it to work on 220-volts, without a transformer or converter.

HOWEVER

Desktop units have a selector switch for 110 / 220 volts., which is done away with in the case of laptop one's which sense the input voltage and regulate accordingly.

I think your main concern is just that you have an adapter for the plug to go into the wall outlet.

Hope that helps :)
