    Please help

    I accidentally (ok stupidly :eek:) plugged a 120V rated rocketfish wireless speaker kit (model RF-WHTIB) into a 220V socket

    I really did not expect it to not be dual voltage capable.

    I opened up the unit and noticed that the MOV was blown.

    I have 2 noob questions

    1. Are the other components saved? No visual evidence of damage noted (see pics below)

    2. How do I identify the correct MOV to replace? The side with the printed info is what got toasted and i cannot see any specs.

    PS I am no electronics expert...I just figured out what MOV was doing a google search!
