Hi,

It would be logical to assume that the charging circuitry is damaged. If you are considering a DIY (do-it-yourself), then pls determine the limiting resistor that reduces the 220 to 110. Thereafter check the diode, capacitor and regulator. The final output voltage of the charging circuitry is slightly higher than the voltage rating of the battery. It might also be worth your while to check if the battery will still charge (using an external charger or a multiple voltage adapter). Soon as the battery is charge, pls check if the motor will still run. Failure of either the battery to charge or the motor to run would make repairing the charging circuitry pointless and you might be better off purchasing a replacement unit.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

What is required to use it as far as electrical outlet.


Dryers come in both 110V and 220V.
If you plug a 220V dryer into a 110V socket, it will run very slow.
If you plug a 110V dryer into a 220V socket, it will burn up.
If you can find a 220V extension cord, then you should be able to use it.

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

How to use it if we have 220V outlet?


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.

I live in South Africa and my son has brought back a Panasonic shaver from the USA. Can our std 220v power outlet be suitable to charge the shaver? The power pack only mentions 120v input AC?


If the power supply that came with the unit says only 120V, you must use a voltage converter with the unit. If you plug the charger into your 220V system without a convertr, it will damage the charger

I am in Europe and need to recharge my Norelco shaver 5861. Will it damage the batteries if I use an adaptor and plug the shaver into a 220v outlet?


Model 5861 has worldwide voltage capability and can be charged from 100-240V without requiring a voltage converter. If your shaver cord has an American plug, you will need a simple adapter to fit European wall outlets. You will find this item at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

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..

Plugged my computer into a 220 outlet!


You burned the Power supply you don't need to switch motherboard out just knew power supply. And in the future there is a switch located on the back of them that will make them a 220v powersupply. But usually only a high end PC for gamers will need that so just put in a new powersupply and you should be good

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)..
