Question about LG 50PX5D 50 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

TV for use in Australia

I'm interested in buying a 50" Plasma TV, but I'm moving to Australia soon which uses standard 220V electrical systems in homes. Can I just buy a plug converter or will there be issues. Currently interested in the LG 50PY3D.

Hey MrBigAl,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, this TV model requires 100-240V, 50/60Hz electricity in order to function correctly. If the electricity provided in your area meets that requirement, you may only need the power cord adaptor in order to use this TV in your new home. I would strongly suggest contacting LG directly for confirmation though, as many electronics may have an optimal voltage at which they operate.

You should be able to reach LG by calling their toll-free hotline at (800)-243-0000, but can always read more about the TV's specifications by checking out the owner's manual through the following link:

Please keep in mind that as this TV only contains NTSC-M, ATSC and 64/256 QAM tuners, it may not be able to receive Australian TV's PAL or DVB-T signals without the assistance of an additional converter or set-top box.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Can a samsung tv be reprogrammed for a different region?


TWO ISSUES: FIRST USA IS NTSC picture and sound format and Australia is PAL picture and sound format---going to need a special box taking one kind of signal and converting it for the other.

Line voltage is likely to be different---120 ac here and may be 220 there---going to need if that a step down transformer for their voltage down to 120 for the USA set.

Both items are fairly common and you can Google and shop for them on the internet once you know the standard voltage --IF memory serves me correctly it is 220 but our good friend Google should have that info as well.

Seems to be a lot of questions like this here lately.

Can I hook up a wii game system to my lg plasma tv ?


it depends on which cables you want to use for your wii. there is the standard A/V cables that are yellow, white, and red; or the component cables which are red, green and blue with another white and red.

For standard A/V connection: on back of TV use "A/V INPUT" (below "MONITOR OUT")

For component connection:on back of TV use "COMPONENT INPUT 1" (or 2)

hope this helps!

LG 50inch Plasma received loud sound then went black


I suggest you guys take your TV's into a repair shop like Sears or Best Buy... The main reason most plasmas go dark is because of decay, but I don't think this is the case. Because what you describe is similar to what happens in LCD's when their back light goes out. Although you can open up and repair the back light your self in a LCD, I would not advise you to do so for a Plasma, because of the hazardous chemicals used in the plasma display plus the fact that plasmas don't use back lighting. And 2 years is way to soon for decay to be a factor. So more than likely a circuit shorted out and the TV has to be opened up to be repaired.

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?

Horizantal lines


Had same problem with my PRO1000 - faint horizontal bands moving from bottom up (sometimes sationary). Turned out to be nothing more than some signal interference from a PC I had plugged into the VGA moniter input on the TV. As soon as I disconnected the PC, the bands disappeared. Hope that helps...
