Customer Question
I'm in Australia. We...

I'm in Australia. We switched to Analog about 2012. I have model LC-32AX5X ( about 2006). I have had this tv in storage for 5 or 6 yrs. I have lost power cord and remote as well. I'm wondering if this TV would work w analog and if a power cord is available?

Technician's Assistant: Is your LC-32AX5X connected to a surge protector or power strip?

No, I don't have a power cord

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried to power reset your TV (unplugging the power for 1-2 minutes, then plugging it back in)?

. I don't have a power cord for the TV anymore?

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the TV expert to know before I connect you?

Is the Tv useable w current analog system in Aus?

Not easy to do really and how will that answer the question I'm asking?
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 6 months ago

There are regional versions of this model hence the socket may and can vary. The picture would as posted serve as common reference.

Well I can't fit an i pad in the area where the socket is. It is a strange set up its in an indentation and it's up at the top.

I am asking technical questions. WILL THIS MODEL WORK W ANALOG AND ARE POWER CORDS AVAILABLE ANYMORE.
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 6 months ago

To my understanding, there is no longer any analog system within Australia.

Ok will this tv work with the current system in Australia it changed since I bought this TVs. Many people bought new TVs when the change occurred 5 years ago or so?
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 6 months ago

Directly, no. The Sharp LC-32AX5X is only capable of PAL: B/G, D/K, I SECAM: B/G, D/K, K/K1 NTSC: M systems.

It does not have the necessary digital hardware and therefore not compatible with the MPEG-2 / MPEG4 h.264 OR AVC codec variants that DVB-T is currently in used in Australia.

Your right it switched to digital here, my mistake. So sounds like it's no good for the current system?
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 6 months ago

As posted above, directly no. There is however a workaround but an add-on / external device would be needed.

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Hmm do you have any ideas of the cost of that? Also do you know if power cords are still available here?
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 6 months ago

Please click HERE for these add-on/external devices.

The power cord would look something like the product shown HERE except that the AC plug would have to conform with Australian standards.
