DIY for a broken LED floodlight

Hello DIYers!

I hope you can help me with a dilemma. I purchased a couple LED floodlights from Ebay (2x10 and 2x30W) a few months ago. They work great. I decided that i need more lighting and ordered 2x50W floodlights from the same seller. They arrived today and I wired one, and when I plugged it in, it lit up for a second, made a noise and died. Upon closer inspection i realized that the seller sent me the floodlight which takes only a 12-24V current (my mistake), whereas my outlet is 110V. Bummer, i should have paid better attention!! So, one light is baked, the other I didn't touch. Is there a way for me to replace some of the parts in these lights to make them work with my 110V current? And if yes, will i then be able to fix my broken light somehow? Please help, they are pricey!
