sparky when a transformer has the wrong voltage applied to the primary it will still induce a voltage in the secondary before it blows/shorts out etc.,the next thing in line ( most times ) is the rectifier diodes and filter caps, if any thing else is going to be blown it should be them, and that should protect the main board......hopefully
Good Luck !
