Question about Sharp 13VT-N100 Combo

Power supply zapped

I have my tv/vcr overseas where they use 220V and 50Hz. My son plugged it in and it blew up. Is there some possibility that it has an inner fuse that blew or do I have to throw away the whole machine?

It could have blew a fuse but if you heard it or somethiung blow its probably trash. You may want to have it looked at first though

My relative send me a luxor tv its 50hrz..here in the philippines we use 60hrz.,is it possible and safe


is there no small slide switch at the back of the tv
10 volt difference
may need an converter to make up 10 volts

The more significant difference is that 60Hz systems usually use 110V (120V) or thereabouts for the domestic power supply, while 50Hz systems tend to use 220V, 230V etc


read this information on the 50 and 60 hrz

Will Freezer run overseas on a transformer?


Step Down Voltage Converters You can use this link to find a converter that should work. There are several other sites as well. You need to get a converter with enough wattage capacity to operate the freezer. I recommend you get one with a somewhat higher wattage rating than the freezer's wattage rating. For instance if the freezer is rated at 700 watts, I would get at least a 1000 watt converter. Good Luck !!! and Bon Voyage !

Can this unit be plugged into a 220v power supply overseas? The manual says it accommodates 100v-240v.


Yes! If you look on the back it should say the voltage ratings. Beside that UK voltages can be as low as 220 at times and in some areas!

What will happen if I plug my 110V tv into a 220V receptacle?


If you want to fry your electronics or appliances that's it's a sure way to accomplish that.
While appliance working ONLY at 220v will just not work or under perform (like a hair drier) when plugging electronic equipment that runds ONLY at 110v then that item will be "fried" as all its electric components will be burnt as it will receive twice the power that it was build to receive. Should that happen the safety switch on the 220v circuit where the item was MISTAKENLY plugged will be triggered (hopefully or there will be risk of fire and serious injuries, even death) and the power will be shut off. That's a major but possible mistake.
If traveling abroad those who come to US will unlikely damage their appliances (like electric razors) as they will receive less power (110v vs 220v) and usually these items are protected against these mistakes by the specifications of their own design. The opposite is not true of course as just mentioned above.
So do not play around with dangerous items please! ;) On a positive note though: Nowadays most appliances have dual power and should work whether plugged in a 110v, 60Hz (most common in US) or 220v 50Hz (most common in Europe). So nothing really happens... it just works as long as you have the proper adapters to plug the appliance to the different receptacles.
Note: One of the differences is that (without going into the math of it all), an appliance working at 110v will draw x2 times the power than it draws when working on 220v so if an appliance was drawing 3A at 110v it will only draw 1.5A when working at 220v.
Best.

Kitchen aid stand mixer bought in US, moving to Europe, 220v 50hz


I can not respond to the warranty issues. My kitchen aid mixer is past warranty as well. I live in a country that uses 220V and my kitchen aid mixer is 110V. I have been using my kitchen aid mixer for almost 4 years with no problems at all.

The converter boxes are supposed to blow the fuse on the converter before it reaches your appliance and cause any problems.

If you purchase a 220V kitchen aid (although it would cost more money) it would probably have more power because of the higher voltage.

Hope this helps!

125 v 4 amp fuse keeps blowing


if you plugged a 125 volt tv in to a 220 volt outlet you more than likely fried alof of the componets in the tv. Putting a bigger fuse in there is only going to increase the risk of it catching on fire so i would not recomend that. you might replace the power supply and cross your fingers and hope that nothing else cooked when the 220 volts hit it
