Hi guys. May I ask, if I plugged the scanner to a 220v outlet instead of a 110v accidentally and switchee it on, is it still repairable? Didnt realize that the scanner was a 110v.

Any answer is helpful. Thank you!

Probably fried. I did that with a portable grinder when I was 12 years old. It set a new RPM record for about 5 seconds, then became an odd looking doorstop.

That's one mean looking doorstop. Haha Thanks for the info! Hopefully someone thinks or knows its still fixable. It would be hard looking for a new one with that model here in my country. Very sad. I should've checked that it may be 110v. Forgot that those things existed. Oh well. Hind sight is 20/20. I owe my gf a nice scanner for film scanning.

The outlet and plug are not the same. We are just used to using an adpater everytime the plugs are different. Forgot there was a time that not every/most of the appliances are 220v. My gf was so excited in trying out the scanner. It was her dream to scan negatives. Its a sad day. Its a lesson for me to always check the power rating.
