Need Help Determining The Damage Done To A Clavinova CLP-220

Hello everyone,
This is my first post here and probably the most important one I'll ever make. I have a Yamaha Clavinova CLP-220 which I've been using most happily up until now. The other day, I accidentally plugged it into an incorrect as I live in a different country than the one where I had originally bought it, and I've now realized that I sent around 220V when it was only made to take 110V. It won't even turn on now no matter what. I would just like to know the kind of damage I've likely done to it and what I can do about it and whether or not I can repair it. I understand this is a question that I should probably ask an electrician about but I figured that I might hear helpful comments and replies here.
Any help would be appreciated,
and a huge thank you in return.

No idea, really.

But there could be a fuse that's blown. That's the ideal case. Try to hunt down a service manual (from https://elektrotanya.com/keres perhaps?) and if you have a multimeter and any DIY spirit in you, check that first and see if there's anything suspiciously black inside the piano... wink

And as always, power electronics might kill you even if the device is unplugged, so on a second thought...you need a bit more than just "DIY spirit" before opening up anything.
