Need power cable for SHARP LCD TV to use in Turkey
I have a 42 inch SHARP LCD TV. It can be used wıth both 110v and 220 v. My cable is for 110 v with 7A 125 V. TV is 235 W. I think, I can not use it in Turkey (220V). I can attach a european plug converter to the electic end. But I want to know if my cable (Longwell LS-7CWA 7A 125 V) works with 220v in Turkey. Do I need to find another power cable for use with 220V (TV is 235 Watts). If so, where can I find it. Dont worry about the color system and the tuner. I wıll connect a PAL tuner with VGA output. My problem is with the power cable.

Re: Need power cable for SHARP LCD TV to use in Turkey
It is not the power cord that makes the rating of the power supply. You can use a transformer, and not a solid state converter to lower the 220 V to 120 V.
What you will find if this is a North American TV set, it may not work in other countries due to the standards for TV broadcast.
If the set is rated for PAL, this will only work with the video inputs, and not the tuner. The tuner frequency allocation and the video and audio carriers are also different between the some of the different countries.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Please check the power outlet and ensure that it has power and it is on. Secondly, check whether the power cord is inserted into the rear of the TV. If there is an on/off Switch at the rear of the TV, check whether it is on. Hope you have checked what is the power rating for the TV like: if it is meant for 110V and you have used it for 220 or more V AC, I am sure something might have gone wrong inside. These are the basic things I can suggest.
Check the power source?Try unplug,replug tv an hour later.Let the tv resetting itself back to factory setting.The tv should work now.No,LCD tv have common problems power supply board died alot.This tv is new,call Sharp for warrenty repair.
Call Sharp for warrenty repair.This problem very common in Sharp tv.Picture will come on turn power on/off button few times will work.But still under Wareenty call to Sharp to replaced the main Tuner Signal board.
The lcd screen is the most expensive component of the lcd screen/tv/monitor.
It makes no sense to try and replace it as first of all you won`t be able to find the part number required to do that job (e.g. the screens are internally made by sharp // special orders are placed to companies that only start the process for orders greater than tens of thousands of items) and secondly after a lcd panel has been replaced / installed you need to configure the colors, luminosity, contrast, balance etc through a data cable.
well I am guessing you live in the us and are moving back to europe. So I will approach it from that end. To answer your question is yes and no. US is on a system called NTSC, europe uses a format called PAL for its signals. This is like the difference between Mac and PC formats. You will need to research first a power adapter for the tv. I would recommend a power conditioner as well. You will also need so check into is a PAL to NTSC converter.
The voltage rating of the cable is not a problem. For all home appliances, including TV sets, the voltage rating of the power cable is supposed to be up in the 600 Volt to 1000 Volt range depending on the particular manufacture of the cable. This is not an issue. I have never seen a home appliance that could handle more than 240 VAC.
As for the Amperage rating of cable, it is more than adequate for the appliance that the cable is sold for. The 220 Volt appliances use about 1/2 the amperage that their equivelent 120 Volt appliances use. This is because the wattage for the power consumption is normaly constant.
The power cable is not a factor here. If the power supply in the TV can take the 220 VAC, and the 50 Hz power line frequency then there are no problems from that point.
