Well there's no warning because you are supposed to buy the product from your own country. I bet in the warranty it states you should check the voltage of your country.
People often buy from the US to save money but the problem with this, along with different voltages and plug types, is that the warranty is only valid in the US, so in the long run you may not save money - definitely not in your case. You would either have to send it back to the US under that warranty - if that warranty is even still valid given you plugged it into incorrect mains supply, or you will have to get it repaired locally but out of warranty at your own cost.
The first thing to try however is a power supply rated for your country and with the exact same spec - it must be AC - not DC! This is very important as most common PSUs available in shops are DC. Get the voltage and ampage correct too.You may find that just the PSU has been killed and your FFP is OK. However from your description it sounds like the FFP suffered too.
