Buying a UK Tv and taking it to Portugal

Hi guys.


I'm Portuguese and living in the UK for 2 years now.


My old Portuguese TV stopped working (I used the VCR to get sound on UK channels) and I was thinking about buying a new one but am afraid that the sound settings might not work when I go back to Portugal later this year.


Any practical advice/solutions?

Philips TVs are multi-standard, and will work in most of Europe, providing the country has 220v-250v mains electricity.

Just select the relevant region in the tuner menu.

Hi! I received a Philips pet729/37 7" as a present but i live in Europe. So, how can i set the time zone of my region (PORTUGAL) in order to see a DTV? Thanks!

The time sets itself because it has got a digital tuner, so when it is tuned in it will show the correct time for the digital TV. For Portugal CET.

My 3 year old son accidently knocked our T.V. off landing on a rockinchair, and I hope I can replace the flat screen instead of buying a new T.V.

you can definately replace it but it is quite expensive where did you purchase it and its possible that its covered by warranty as long as you forget to mention that your little guy knocked it over :)

My rca L32HD31 tv stopped working suddenly no sound no picture just A yellow light on I took it to repair center said it was the converter and can"t get part I am A recovering cancer patient hardly watched...

With no sound and no picture it would not be the INVERTER, (no such part as "converter") You have a main board problem and it would cost around $300 to fix. These flat panel sets only last about 2 years, as much as they cost! You need to get a older type CRT television, pawn shops, tv shops, and yard sales have these, they are made much better than these newer sets and last 10 to 15 years or more. They also can be cheaply repaired when they breakdown.

If However you live in the us I am sorry I dont know what your consumer rights are but you check it out as it is possible you are protected in the same way .. here in the Uk you can check this out on hope this is of help regrads Vortash

42'' LG Plasma bought in Australia doesn't work in UK?

Find out if Australia uses a different standard of HD programming than Guernsey or not since it's not picking up any channels at all with an attenna. Does the skybox use only scart connections and that's how your small lcd is connected to it?

Power to Protron TV

I had a power supply for my Protron 32 inch TV that was not working. I bought the one on ebay and it stopped working after only three weeks. Ultimately I found a guy who could fix my original power supply for a reasonable price. It's been working for a year now with no problems. I wish I would have tried him first!!!! If anyone is interested his email is

Magnavox TV not working in the UK

I don't know about the frequencies being different or not, but to get to youse your TV you can use the tuner in an old VCR if you have one sitting around.
