You have just fried your power supply and it will need replacing, that doesnt mean that is all that will need replacing, depends on how well protected the main board is from the power circuit

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.

gamecubes are NOT 120 volts you got that from yahoo answers other websites say 12 volts which sounds bout rite i think you need to rethink the problem and post again if that little blue box takes that many 9 volt batteries to power (just an example) then that is not a gamecube but a nintendo god (treat with care)

Will my Logitech X-230 speakers work in a country with 220-240 V power outlets or would i need an adapter to use them there? If i connect them directly to the 240 V outlet, will they run properly or would...


Check the back of your sub to check your voltage range. You will see something like this: 110V-120V or 110V-220V. If you see the later, you are ready to go. If you see 110-120V only, you will need a power converter to power your speakers as well as any other 110-120V equipment. But no matter what, if it is 110-120V DO NOT PLUG DIRECT TO 220V!! It will blow your speakers. (I lived in Germany for 11 years.)

Wii power source probably broken


Plug something else into the adapter to make sure it works, if it works you may have blown the Wii's fuse which will need repair.

My sharp LC-20AV4U tv did not turn on when i plugged it in


The fuse is blowning because most likely when you plugged it it, it took a power surge. And the power surge blow a proection diode. As long as you opened it up... in the power section you will see a bunch of diodes. Get a multi meter and check these diodes out. Besides the diodes... you will see a transformer.... if you are looking at the unit with the fuse to the left... then look to the right of the transformer... you will see a transistor on a metal heat sink... that could have blown also.. if that did... then you should also check the diodes just on the other side of the heatsink too.

Good luck

Plugged 4w 120v trimmer into 220v outlet with a 50-2000w 220-110v coverter - it blew fuse and doesn't work. soldering melted off wire inside


scrap the trimmer...
probablly damaged beyond cost of new one

a step down transformer would have been a better choice than a voltage converter ( not trying to be a wise guy here)..
