Normaly there will be much more damage than the internal fuse. On this model, if I can remember correctly, there is a pig-tail fuse that is solder connected to the circuit board. When this fuse is blown, normaly there are serious problems in the power supply or some other areas of the set.

It would be best for you to take the set to a service center to have it properly checked and have an estimate. I have had your described situation before. Most of the time the set would be very expensive to service in this type of case.

I plugged my 32hlc56 into 240 outlet in Cebu and its only 120, no power now, can I have it repaired and where?


You should take your TV to some good electronic service and they should check if it can be repaired. Obvously you overcharged it and PROBABLY some part of the circuit board burned out. Maybe it's just a cable, or the insulation or maybe it has a massive damage. it's a question of verifying if damaged part can be replaced or repaired and for how much.
No way to tell for sure extente of damage, I'm just guessing.

I accidentally plugged it into a 220v outlet


Amperage = voltage divided by resistance.

When you applied 220 volts you effectively doubled the amperage going into the unit and you may have already burned out or seriously damaged the motor windings. Sorry.

Rainbow e2 type 12 120v , accidentally plugged into 220v, would barely power up, possibly controller board defective?


probably need both as the extra 100 volts would burn the board and the motor
it is never advisable to buy electric equipment from another country because of the voltage differences but even then the plugs are made different so that the cord will not plug directly into the power outlet.

Plugged 120v home theater into 220v outlet


No. I wouldn't suggest trying that. It would be hazardous to your health and I seriously doubt you would be able to troubleshoot it. My question is, the power cords are nothing alike between 220 and 120 volts. How did you even plug it in? For more information, or should you have any further questions, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me directly through the website. Thank you.

What will happen if inserted the 110v input d-link wireless router power supply to a 220v outlet? does my router busted or just the power supply?


Most likely you have damaged not only the power supply but also the D-Link wireless router unless the power adapter is a multi-voltage power adapter. Check the label on the power adapter and if the input voltage is a fixed 110 volt power supply you are in trouble.
You can try getting a 110v power adapter and connect it into the D-Link and if it works then you are lucky.

I accidentally plugged in my pulmoneb in a 220v outlet


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

My son accidentally plug a 110v bose 3-2-1 to a 220v outlet. What do you think is the damage? Do we still need to send it to a service center?


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.

110v lcd tv was plugged to 22ov outlet


Hello nik286, hi, check first the label at the back of the TV, look for a voltage input something like a 90V-240V, if you see this, its an autovolt system, this type of power supply input is standard nowadays. Assuming your asking what would be damage, this could be anything from the fuse, thermal resistor, rectifier diodes, and the regulator IC of the power supply board.

I have plugged wii in 220 volt recepatacle though it was 110 volt what to do


Hello,

There are two possible scenario's when you accidentally plug a 110V device in a 220V outlet:
1: The power supply to the device you plug in gets fried. this is your best case scenario. See if you can borrow a Wii power supply from a friend and test your console with this power supply. If this works, you just need a new power supply and all is well.
2. Your Wii gets fried. Worst case scenario: your Wii got fried. If it is still in warranty, see if they will cover this damage under the manufacturer warranty, if not, I am afraid you will either need to pay for repairs or buy a new console.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but plugging a 110V device in a 220V outlet generally will fry one thing or the other or even both.

Thanks for using the FixYa forums!
