All the machine manufacture for Usa work on 110 volt 60 hz and the format is Ntsc.You should check availability on line about region Format like NTSC-PAL -PAL2 SECAM and which country are using the same, and make sure the hz is 50.Most of the new Game system support Dual Voltage But not the Ps3.You need to let your seller check on the machine tag to make sure everything is correct like 220v 50 hz.

I buy My playstation 3 in u.s the power supply is 110v 1.5A. In my country the voltage is 220. Can i use 220v 150watts transformer

The playstation 3 is dual voltage, meaning that as long as you have the right cable (plug for the wall socket) it will run 100 - 240v.
I believe the only exception to the universal power supply is the PAL 60GB PS3 (CECHC01) model. That power supply APS-227 is not compatible with voltages under 220V.

Will my BES800xl espresso mechine (canadian version) work in Ukraine running on 220v? I also have a Juice & Blend BJB840xl and want to know the same thin. Would a high wattage bump up transformer wirk...

Hello, if in canada you have 110V in europe you will have 220V so, you need to find out if next the plug of your devices you have a switch that you can change between 110V to 220V. That will help otherwise you can burn the device.

If I would buy a Onkyo TX-NR616 in the US (110V) and take it Europe (220V), wouldn't it be a solution to simply exchange the power transformer for a 220v one?

An stepdown transformer is needed should you buy in US and use it Europe

However, if your on a technical side , trace the primary windings , and check

There are European versions which are already 220V, no need to convert.

Hi I have GE Microwave (model no JES738WJ02) which has suddenly stopped working from yester day ... the problem is when I am starting it,the inside light gets on and the inside dish is rotating properly...

The easiest way to fix a problem at m.w. ovens is to check out if the 220V (Europe) volts feeds the transformer. You must remove the cover, put a glass of water inside the oven, turn on for 3 minutes and measure the tension that come to transformer.
Don't try to measure the transformer output, the tension is very high ~2400V !!!
If at the transformer input there are the 220V (Europe) but the oven still don't heat, the magnetron (m.w. generator) is burned out and must be changed.

I bought a game inported from japan but when i played, it wont let me due to a region pattern , and i dont kno what that mean

Hello there,
Video games, just like DVD, have regional restrictions placed on them. If you buy a game from Europe, you will only be able to play them on consoles designed to work in Europe. This is the same for Japan, America, Australia, etc. Unfortunately, there is no legal way for you to be able to play a Japanese bought game on an American system or vica versa.
Here is some more information on "Regional Lockout."
I hope this helps. Thumbs up if you think so!

Dryer timer counts off to fast

The only thing that I can think of is that you are using a dryer intended for Europe in the US. While they both run on 220V, the timer motor will be specific for the frequency of the country. The US uses 60 Hz. Europe uses 50 Hz.

To keep the explanation simplistic, your timer motor expect 50 electric (frequency) "beats" per second but instead is getting 60 beats per second. Your clock is turning an extra 12 seconds every minute.
