We recently plugged in our home theatre system that was purchased in the US (110v) into an outlet in India (220v). We did not see the instructions to flip the switch in the back to 220v before plugging it in. Now the player does not even power up (it did power up a few times initially before finally giving in).
Just wanted to know if something can be done to fix this...

Your Logitech remote should be able to work on a 220 volt system so ling as the AC adaptor that plugs between the wall and the charger is rated 110-220v. Unplug it from the wall an read what it says on the outside. In should say "Input 110-220v" to be safe to put on a 220 system. If it is only rated 110v input power, you may need to purchase a universal power adaptor in order to provide power to the charging cradle. Another solution is to buy a "power transformer" which is a box that plugs into the wall and steps down the voltage and provides an outlet that can be used to power multiple 110 devices. What ever you do, do not plug in a 110v only device into a 220v circuit. If you do, it will "fry" the electronics rendering them useless, but it could potentially even start a fire.
With regard to your lighting system, the Harmony will emulate just about any remote controlled system that uses an IR signal. You may just need to program that device into your remote. Since you will not always want lights on or off during a movie, I would teach the remote the the audio systems * key is the same IR command as your lighting system. That way you can control the lights at the push of a button, independent of that activity.
plugging a 110v device into a 220v outlet is not likely, as the plugs are a different configuration. In the event that you somehow managed to do that, your device is probably fried, as that would be to much voltage. Hate to say it; but you are probably gonna need a new one
If the AC unit is 110V then you must plug it into a regular 110V outlet. You cannot plug it into the 220V outlet. Either get a bigger 220V unit or use a 12 gauge extension cord to get it to a 110V outlet.
If you are lucky you would have lost the fuse on the sub woofer module which powers the whole unit. If not, yes you will need a qualified technician to look into the matter because its not a small offense to plug a 110 device into 220v.
Since this unit dose not come with power adaptor. It has direct plug in in to the port behind the sub-woofer unit and other end to the wall outlet. Is there any way to convert the power supply from UK to US (220v to 110v). For example Desktop PCs have a switch behind every desktop unit to change power from 110v to 220v or vise versa. Anyone has any idea how to make this happen in Bose Companion 3 system. I bought it from UK and now moved to US and I want it to work in US. othervise use waltage adapter to use it
your power supply is shorted.. make sure to connect your new power supply to the actual voltage .. 220V is for 220V input PSU.... if you connect your 110V PSU to 220V outlet... it will fry your power supply..
So confusing...Laptop AC Adapter nowadays has AUTOMATIC VOLTAGE, meaning it doesn't matter if it is 110v or 220v. Maybe you've got a FAULTY BATTERY. Remove the battery and plug in your AC Adapter to outlet and to your laptop and try to power-on.

Good day mate, no problem you can plug your dvd direct to your outlet since it indicates 100 - 240V it only means your player is capable of having either 110V 0r 220V.
note: also try to check 1st if you will see a voltage selector at the back of your dvd player. it's either a slide switch indicating 110 or 220V. if no sign of this selector no problem you can plug your player straight to your socket.
You probably have too much power running to your power strip that you probably have your xbox, playstation, tv and home theatre system plugged into, try using seperate wall outlets for your tv and home theatre system
