audio electronics voltage question

Recommended Posts

hello, i have a behringer mic preamp from america that uses 120 volts. i am in africa and attempted to plug it in where the voltage is 230-250. obviously, this is bad, the amp no longer works and im an idiot. however, what i cant seem to find on the internet is, what actually happened? like physically? i have looked inside expecting to see melted wires and smoke damage, but there was nothing that really showed it was damaged. the amp has a fuse and its holder says 120-250. when you put the wrong voltage in, does it just blow the fuse? if not, is the damage fixable? i know this isnt really music related, but im hoping someone is producer by day, electrician by night. thanks
