I have unplug it into 220v instead of 110 as it require it smoke....can we fix it?
We fail to notice the it require only 110v as power source...and when we plug it in, it smoke like it almost explode...i can feel it was difected, can there be a chance for it to be fixed? or can somebody send a details where can i find the store in the philippines where i can acquire for technical support.?please help.

Re: i have unplug it into 220v instead of 110 as it...
To be honest; the integrety of the electronics have been severly compromised. Your best hope is the damage was limited only to the powersupply.

One phase of your power is missing. Lights work on 110v . Heat requires 220v . Measure voltages where the power comes in. You should have 3 wires coming in. Measure 110 across center and one side . Measure 110 across middle and opposite side. Measure 220 across 2 outside wires.
this will be interesting on one switch
110 volts motor running on 220 volts will end in a flash and plenty of smoke
and a 220 volts motor running on 110 volts will over heat and smoke as well
unless you have some form of transformer to one of the motors it is a recipe for disaster
talk with an accredited electrician
More than likely you fried the boards and even if to change them out ,you still run the risk of electrical shock. My advice is to send it back to the company for repair or get a new one. Plugging a 110 unit into a 220 line has happened to me too! I still feel pretty stupid I did it, but stuff like this happens and it is good that you were not injured.
If the dryer is electric and bought in the United States then you can plug it in. The 110/220 power rating basically means that some parts if the dryer use 110v. All 220v is is 2 110v independent circuits sharing the same common ground.
Hi , If it says it needs a AC 110V connection , you will fry at least the sub . Don't do it ! Connect the device to an AC 220 / 110 V transformer you can find on the net or in all specialized retail shops . Best regards
It most likely has a 110V plug on the power supply; however, all you have to do is buy the appropriate 220v cable for the power supply for your country, and it should work fine on 220V.
External power supplies are designed to use either 110v or 220v -- all you have to do is change the cable or use an adapter and you're good to go.
The moment you plugged it in and tripped the fuse bad things happend, so most likely it won't hurt it anymore to plug it back into 220, although it could over volt and catch on fire. I would check the back of the screen to find out what it's operating range is. Many electronics are designed for a range of voltages to deal with other countries and power sources. I would guess something failed inside the system, most likely the Power Control Board (PCB) Why it held up for the night I have no idea.
If you did not connect the computer to a 220V power-source, i.e., you connected to a 110V source, then you probably are OK, except that the computer-components are probably only getting "half" the power that they normally get.
Turn the computer off, and reset the switch to 110V.
Turn the computer on, and it may start properly.
If all else fails, then take the computer to a qualified technician, for more trouble-shooting, i.e., replace the power-supply, or replace the motherboard, or may even replace _more_ than one component.
There are two systems in use in the states
110v dryers are available that fit a standard 11v 15a socket
110/220v fit the oversize 'dryer' sockets, and they are two 110v phases 90 degreees apart
the motor runs of a single phase 110v.
there is 220v between the 'outside', the active lines of the two phases, at any time, but it is not useable to provide mechanical power as a single service, due to the complicated shape of the wave form when you add out of phase voltages together, but is ok to drive the heaters, they have no mechanical efficiency requirement
A 2 phase 110v heater it means 3kw can be supplied without a 30 amp circuit
but it becomes difficult to use a single phase 220-240v transformer to provide 2x110v 90degree 2 phase current unless you specially buy one in. .
High power applications in 220-240v are generally supplied by 415v 3 phase 60deg supplies,
Any transformer would be onsellable at the end of your posting, to your replacement, who would doubtless be in the same boat as you, with a heap of 'stuff' that needs to run.
UK Aus NZ may be sources of transformers, or dryers to suit.
check with Australian UK NZ suppliers as well as local Indian ones, as those countries are also nominal 240v single phase home suplies and they may have (1) the dryer, or (2)the transformer to suit the 110 2 phase dryer
