No. If the printer has a seperate power supply you should be OK just buying a new power supply but if the power cable plugs into the printer itself you will need to take it to a service centre.

How do I contact kindle in uk ?

I've heard of these problems before but without knowing your exact model number just try pressing and holding the power button for a FULL 40 seconds. Ensure that it is not plugged into any power outlet or PC first. Hold it for 40 seconds. Time yourself. Better to go longer than not the full 40. Hope that helps. After you've done that, power it back up.

Kindle is made by Amazon so contact

I plugged in my Dell PC from US with 115V in a 230 outlet in Asia. Heard a pop noise and all went dead. What is the fix for this? Please help.

If you're lucky, you'll only need a new power supply for this machine. It probably hasn't damaged the rest of the PC (from my experience of repairing such things), but you'll need to try a power supply to find out.

Loud pop with smoke

Don't know why just plugging it into a new outlet would cause that unless you have a problem with that outlet. Sounds like it may have burned out the low voltage circuitry. I would advise having the outlet checked and certified safe before plugging anything else into it. Also, it sounds like the oven is toast, (Sorry!)

Hitachi Ultravision 53"- went blank

If it popped, it may have done one of 2 things, the convergence amps may have gone out, or there may be something in the horizontal output section that is shorted, either way call the repairman.
