Having problems with your Bose Companion 3 Computer Speakers ?

Companion 3 problem

\015 Hi \015\012\015\012I have bought Companion 3 from US recently.I mistakenly plugged them in 220V supply in India.Since then the control pod is not working.I also bought a step down converter but to no help...\015\012Can anybody tell what is the problem\015

Answers :

It is not the pod that isn't working, a 220v power supply would overload the circuitry in the subwoofer. And since the damage is done, a step down converter would be no help at this point. I would take it to a electronic repair shop and have them take a look at it.
Try to change the LED in the control pod...really, what would you suspect the problem is?
