I'm not completely familiar with the JVC wireless headphones, but I'm assuming that the charging unit uses an AC adapter as it's power source. If that's the case, there's a chance that the adapter itself fried before any damage was done to the base unit itself. A simple test using a volt meter should tell you if the adapter is still working or not. That being said, the base unit may have been damaged before the adapter died, and in that case it would be like tbreeze47 said and probably not worth repairing. What I would do is bring your unit into a store that sells the same exact model with a plugged in demo model and ask if you can test yours out using their adapter (assuming that it is a current model). If you find that your unit is still working, the store may be able to order you a new adapter or you can check the JVC online store for a replacement. Best of luck.

Testimonial: "Thank you! That was a very thorough explanation. I already called up JVC and was advised that they do not sell this model in the Philippines (I got mine in Japan) and they could not service the unit. Maybe I will just bring the unit to a shop who could do the adapter-testing. If still no success, I guess I'd just have to settle with my old reliable ipod earphones. =) Thank you to both of you!"

It no doubt can be repaired, but chances are it's going to be pricey. The power input circuit will be blown for sure, and probably most everything ahead of it, since voltage came in on the ground side also (a 220V line is just 2 120 lines, and it's usually more like 228-240). You would be better off trying to get one off ebay, or on sale, than to repair this one. Sorry to relay the bad news. Of course, the headphones will still be good, that's the good news.

Testimonial: "Thank you for the quick response to my inquiry. It truly is bad news but thank you for the information, at least I know that I wouldn't have to worry looking for a service center to fix it. I just don't know how to use the headphones anymore without its main base. =("

I accidentally plugged my kuerig 45elite to 220v, it's not working now. Can you repair it and how much?


Everything inside it electrical will be ruined. I don't understand how you can get 220 volts into a 110 appliance as the plugs and sockets are so different?

Anyway, you would have to phone them as their website is useless unless you want to buy one.!

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.

No, You'll burn up the appliance. When I was in Germany there were commercially available transformers to step the current down. The transformers plug into the 220 sockets and provide several 110 sockets to plug your appliance into. We purchased several transformers and ran our 110 tvs, kitchen appliances and other 110 appliances. The 220 sockets in Germany were different than 110 and 110 plugs sould not fit.

I am trying to figure out if I can plug my new router into this 220Volt plug or do I have to plug it up to the transformer I was given since I live in south korea


Hi,

Please see on the adapter of the router if the range of voltage is from 110 to 220. If it is then it is called auto-volt. The adapter can adapt whether 220 or 110. You can directly connect it to any socket.

If it is not auto-volt then you must use a step down transformer to use it.

Thanks.

My drier 110 volts was accidentally plugged to 220


The least of your problems would be a burnt out relay or internal switch which can be replaced at reasonable expense. In a worst case the motor or heating element "fried" and it'll be cheaper to buy a new dryer.
BTW 110 and 220 plugs are entirely different and a 110 plug cannot be plugged into a 220 outlet.

Plugged a 110 volt kenwood receiver accidentally to 220 volts


Considering 220 and 110 systems have different receptacles, you worked at doing this.
Since it is already inoperable, you may as well remove the housing and inspect the guts. If you see burned traces or boards, don't bother to have it repaired.
If you see a fuse in a clip, you might replace it once, two would be the waste of the second fuse.

Wii 110 voltage plugged into a 220 socket


Well your warranty won't cover it thats for sure. So with that bit of knowledge, locate your nearest console/modchip shop. They also do console repairs etc and should be able to repair or replace the power supply as long as the internals are ok apart from that.
