Brother Brother MFC 6490CW

plugged my Brother MFC-6490CW into a 220-volt outl

I accidentally plugged my Brother MFC-6490CW combo printer/copier/scanner into a 220-volt outlet instead of the 110-volt.Display backlight came on for about 4 seconds until I heard a loud "pop" sound and some smoke came out. Then the printer was completely off. Have not been able to turn back on again.
Could it be a matter of replacing the fuse? Any other suggestion please? Thank you. Daniela
Forget it the printer is now toast. The parts necessary to repair cost more than a new unit.
