Question

LED TV transfer

I have a Samsung LED TV model UA40D5000 bought in the Philippines, can I use it here in New Zealand? Is the multi system features of the TV good enough to use it here? THANKS

Usually the TV works

But the smart TV fails (it's regional) as well as the tuner doesn't work. But as I don't know of a standard for TVs called multi-system, you would have to detail that here.

Smart TV also fails

The multi system is the PAL and NTSC capability of the TV, in the Philippines we use NTSC but here in New Zealand we uses the PAL system. I am worried why the smart TV fails does this model doesn't have the multi system functionality? My concern now if my ordinary Samsung LED tv with multi system will work here in NZ? My Samsung LED model is UA40D5000. Thanks!

So far, smart tvs are regionalized.

You'll have to ask the maker if this model has a setting for the country(s) in question. I can't check this for you as I don't have this model (not in the USA.)

If it's a true multi-system HDTV...

...you are good to go. Usually they are designed for NTSC as an add on to PAL systems and not the other way around.

If the number is correct, it says DVB-T and Secam too, so it sounds quite flexible. Just verify your model numbers(!)
