Question about LG 42LC2D 42 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

I bought a LG Plasma TV RZ 42 PY 10X in in Italy where it is 220V 50Hz and now live in Mexico where it is 110V 60Hz. Although the TV Data states it's working range is 100 to 240V and 50 to 60Hz after a while of being on it starts a hissing noise as if some interference and also heats up a lot after some hours. Do I need to but a transformer?

You need a power supply adapter. Might I suggest a 12v dc converter/inverter? The upside is that, for the money, you also get backup power to run your tv! Bonus!

You will need a good sized 12volt battery that will charge off of 110v house current and then the inverter will cover the rest. If the power there is bad or drops cycles you have everything covered because your inverter/tranformer does it all. Nice!

Here is the link to a website that sells these kinds of power supplies.

My relative send me a luxor tv its 50hrz..here in the philippines we use 60hrz.,is it possible and safe


is there no small slide switch at the back of the tv
10 volt difference
may need an converter to make up 10 volts

The more significant difference is that 60Hz systems usually use 110V (120V) or thereabouts for the domestic power supply, while 50Hz systems tend to use 220V, 230V etc


read this information on the 50 and 60 hrz

How to operate a AEG Washing Machine Electrolux 50hz with 60hz power supply?


In general, it is NOT recommended to operate an appliance 50hz-to-60hz OR 60hz-to-50hz UNLESS the manufacturer specifically says it can do it.
Additionally, you must also account for the voltage (110V vs 220V), which you have not indicated.
Therefore, it is best to get your exact model number and contact the manufacturer, but get ready for disappointment. The larger and more complex the electronic device, the less compatible it is.
Good luck.

Kitchen aid stand mixer bought in US, moving to Europe, 220v 50hz


I can not respond to the warranty issues. My kitchen aid mixer is past warranty as well. I live in a country that uses 220V and my kitchen aid mixer is 110V. I have been using my kitchen aid mixer for almost 4 years with no problems at all.

The converter boxes are supposed to blow the fuse on the converter before it reaches your appliance and cause any problems.

If you purchase a 220V kitchen aid (although it would cost more money) it would probably have more power because of the higher voltage.

Hope this helps!

240v 50Hz Zanussi zwf14581w wont start code EH1 with 220v 60Hz


Hi,
EH1 is a fault code that relates specifically to the frequency of the electrical supply. The power board is designed for 50Hz and will notice if it does n't get what its looking for.
You may be able to purchase a new main PCB that works with a 60Hz supply. You would need to contact Electrolux to ascertain whether this would be possible.

Different HZs problem (from 60Hz to 50Hz)


Hi,

Yes there are frequency converters available but most are relatively over rated (industrial) for your requirement such as MDS Power or VisiComm Industries. What you need is a Low Power Solid State Frequency Converters lower than a
Electrocon Frequency Converters. However, I expect this devices to be rather expensive.

A few other options you may want to consider:
1. Contact the store where you bought if from; swap with an International version (Model SL-1210 Mark II; same price as SL-1200 Mark II); dual voltage switchable on rear of unit: 120 volts/60 Hz (U.S.) or 220 volts/50 Hz (Europe). You hopefully just spend for the cost of shipping + a restocking fee;
2. Contact 3rd party Technics TT specialist like TopDJGear, Quality Electronics, Planet DJ or DJHardware
and inquire if they would supply you the part(s) that you need to convert the 1200 to a 1210; or
3. Offer a swap on eBay.

Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
