Eee PC 2G power supply

The power supply cord is rated 110-240V. When using it on a 220 power supply the plug end of the cord popped and began smoking. No damage to the computer, but now I need a new power supply cord. Where can I purchase such a cord or can I snip off the plug end and attach a normal 110 plug so I can once again recharge my Eee PC?

Why don't you contact the supplier and get a replacement. It must still be within its 1 year warranty period?

Hi . I'm moving from USA to Europe. Can I use my HP 2159m monitor with 220 V instead of 110 ?


Yes. But you'll need a different power cord:
The monitor power supply is provided with Automatic Line Switching (ALS).
This feature allows the monitor to operate on input voltages between 100-240Vv, 50/60 Hz, 1.5A.
The power cord set (flexible cord or wall plug) received with the monitor meets the requirements for use in the country/region where you purchased the equipment.
If you need to obtain a power cord for a different country/region, you should purchase a power cord that is approved for use in that country/region.
The power cord must be rated for the product and for the voltage and current marked on the product's electrical ratings label.
The voltage and current rating of the cord should be greater than the voltage and current rating marked on the product.
If you have questions about the type of power cord to use, contact your HP-authorized service provider.
A power cord should be routed so that it is not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon it or against it.
Particular attention should be paid to the plug, electrical outlet, and the point where the cord exits from the product.

Dyson upright vacuum with kinked cord kept stopping. There was a loud bang and smoke and the vacuum stopped. Has the motor blown up, or can it be repaired?


This happens a lot the supply cable bending or damaged shorts out causing smoke and a bang if fitted with or backed up with a high amperage fuse .
check length of supply cable if you find damage/ burning smell,
either replace cable, or you could fit a inline rubber socket and plug by cutting out damaged part of cable and fitting female part of plug first into supply cable 1. then on the vacuum side of cable fit the male part of plug 2 . supply 1. -----o o----------2.--- vac
using insulation tape if you like you can tape plug and socket together to stop it pulling apart, normally cable damage will not damage the vacuum cleaner. and fit the correct fuse rating for the machine 1000 watts at 240v divide 240 into 1000 =4.166 amps
so with a 1000 w load you do not need a 13 a fuse fitted 6 amp fuse should be ok. or go online and see what is recommended re fuse size for appliance ,

I will be in Asia where the power is 220. Will I need a transformer/converter to use my laptop? My digital camera says it will work on 110 or 220 and a tranformer will damage the camera. Is this the...


The power cord for your laptop is a transformer. However, is is in all likelihood, meant for use in the U.S. only and does not have a selector for 220v. You will need an power cord that is meant to work with 220v. I'm sure there is one available for your laptop. Just make sure that when you purchase it, that the output is rated the same as the one you use now and you will have no problems.

I accidentally plug my aiwa excelia cd player model xc-003 to 220 volts instead of 100 volts. Iheard a small popping sound when i plug the unit to 220 volts.


If you're lucky you'll have just blown the internal fuse.

You need to remove the cover and look for the little glass fuse on the PCB where the power cord comes in. If it has blown then look at the metal cap on the end of the fuse and is should tell you what rating it is (2A etc). You should also check to see if any other components appear damaged before replacing the fuse.

You have damaged the power supply unit and this would have caused some failures on the power supply and sometimes on the drivers.
So first of all please check the power supply unit, alternatively the DC power required can be supplied by incorporating a new power supply with the same rating but working on 220volt.
repairing the 110 volt supply is no good as you will need again a step down to work , so I suggest this change.

An International Power Supply usually has a power selector switch on the back of the printer. Asia uses 240 VAC (At least I think it does).

Check the back of the printer and make sure that it is set properly and try again.

Be aware that if you plugged a 220/240 source into the printer and the printer is set for 110, then more than likely, you have fried the power supply.

I plugged power supply into 220 volt. do you


check out for the main fuse in system, and if you have 110v, rating..then the transfomer for the device is damaged, just replace the transfomer and on the system again..the whole system is not damaged, could be the transfomer, and the fuse.

My AC needs a new 220 cable


If the damage is close to the end of the cable, simply get a replacement plug end from a home repair store and put it on.
Cut the old plug off and install the new plug.
when you go to buy the cord end, take the old one with you so you get the correct configuration.

Plug in 220 v power line, it burns and smokes. Can data be saved?


Is the power supply internal or external? If external, then just find a similiar or identical unit. If internal, then you could try removing the hard drive and installing it temporarily in a desktop system. Obviously, interfaces must match (SATA, IDE). You could then see if it is accessible, and get any files.
