Hi, I'm looking for some assistance with moving my tv from one region to another.
I own an LED TV made by Samsung.
The model # in Australia is UA60ES6500MXXY.
I now have to unexpectedly move back to Canada and am wondering, can the TV work there? I don't mind shipping it there because my move is paid for. What I do mind, is selling my TV for a massive hit! I love this TV!
I've been researching quite a bit. I found this website from the states that says the model I have is "global" and that is supports multi voltages and also supports PAL, NTSC, SECAM
since it is "multi-system".That would lead me to believe that I could take my TV from Australia to Canada and perhaps by a converter box from PAL TO NTSC to get the tv to work. Can anyone verify this?
I called Samsung and the agent was not very helpful (actually, they didn't seem knowledgeable). They said, that cable on the tv wouldn't work for sure but I would still be able to use the TV to if playing external devices (dvd, bluray, usb, xbox). I asked her about any sort of converter box and she didn't know the answer.
The input voltage on the back of the tv says 220-240V. I know I can get a voltage converter for a reasonable price and at least get the TV to turn on. It's actually using it to watch television shows that I'm wondering about.
Can anyone provide more insight? Has anyone successfully had their TV work? Thank you in advance!!
