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

My name Devi from Jakarta , Indonesia, I was buying sewing machine Brother CP 7500 from amazon, i just want to make sure, in indonesia voltage is 220V, how about CP 7500 ? is the voltage 110V or 220V ?...


Amazon is in USA so item would probably be 110 V and not suitable for you. You need to buy a machine locally or from Australia with same voltage as you, 220V. If you try to use a 110V machine you will fry the engine and electricals.

You should be able to buy the same model, just buy it in your voltage.

Compatbility of product in Australia?


Hello,
if you connect the boombox direct to the your mains of 240v, the appliances will blow up , to avoid that you need a step down transformer to connect the boombox before it goes into the mains source. you do not need any adapter, only if you want to use battery that is when you to swicth to 12v

no, it will definately run fine in Australia.Electricity in South Africa is 230 Volts, alternating at 50 cycles per second which is the same as Australia. The voltage in Aus and SA will be somewhere between 220/240v most of the time.
