Will my toshiba tv bought in uk work in usa


There are two things you need to know regarding your TV.

Power requirements and broadcasting standards.

1:POWER
Look on the back of the TV and find the sticker or label that mentions the INPUT VOLTAGE.

If it reads 220-240V 50Hz then it will not work in the USA.

If it reads 110-240V 50-60Hz then it MAY work in the USA. At least you know it will work if you change the plug on the mains cable.

2: BROADCASTING
In the UK, broadcasts use the PAL system to display images on the screen. In the USA, broadcasts use the NTSC system to display images on the screen.

You need to check the manual that came with your TV to see if it is capable of receiving an NTSC signal. This signal is used in everything in the USA from PVRs, to DVD/HDD recorders, satellite systems, public access and cable systems.

If your TV meets the power and broadcast requirements then it should work.

I have bought a Braun epilator 7 , Braun type:5377 , in USA and have purchased the charger in the UK which is 100-240 v , do I still need to get a voltage converter to be able to use it in the UK ?


If the charger is 100 to 240VAC, it should work. USA use 110 volt so the charger should be OK with 240. The UK charger will probably have a UK 3 pin plug on it. If you use it in the US, you will have to change the plug again or buy an international adaptor which can be adapted to fit most outlets anywhere in the World.

UK plug in USA


You need a US to UK transformer if there is not a voltage selector switch on the unit. The motor however may not like being connected to a 60Hz electricity supply. Best contact the manufacturer.

My new andis t outliner making a loud noise


The Andis T-Outliner that you purchase from the USA is not for UK voltage 220 50 HZ, the Voltage is too high, the only way to control the voltage is transformer from 220V to 120 V. The Andis Trimmer that may work for you is the GTX trimmer this trimmer was manufactured for Canada and there voltage is 220V 50HZ.

Have a JBL Encounter 2.1 Multi Media Speaker System need to find a power lead and speaker jack for it im resident in uk and need voltage requirements regards


you shouldnt have to worry about a speaker jack for it. it should work anywhere and a simple usa to uk power adapter will work for you it just changes the plug type and up or downs the voltage (i cant recall if uk is higher or lower then the u.s)

Dell Desktop brought from Switzerland to USA.


Generally you just need to have a US plug instead of a Swiss plug on hand. Most PC power supplies have a red switch on the back that allows you to use 115 or 230 volt power. If there is one, switch it from 230 to 115 and plug in your computer.

Hope it helps!

Plugged an american computer speaker set into a uk plug and it turned off. will not turn back on. blown fuse or is entire set dead? is it possible to simply change the fuse and replace with voltage...


USA = 110 Volts AC
UK = 220 Volts AC

If there is a fuse, you will find a piece of toast in its place

How did you manage this in the first place, the plugs are dramatically different. You fix this yourself?

You might be better off with a new speaker. If the power got through, it probably smoked your transformer.
