Is the power supply on this unit Multi Power Source Capable?

I recently moved overseas. My TV says it is specced for 110V, however online many people claim that Samsung labels the TVs this way on the outside, but on the inside the power supply board is in fact multi-power source capable, possible for import/export or customs reasons?

I've searched google extensively for power supply part:

BN44-00772A (the part number of the internal power supply board)

but I have not been able to find any site that says this power board is capable of 220V, in addition to 110V.

Thanks in advance for any input/guidance!

Hi, have you also checked that it is capable of receiving the local terrestrial TV signal for where you are now or aren't you going to use that option?.

Jimfixer,

That is what we are currently using, and yes it works, but my wife would like that transformer out of our front room, and the TV is the only piece of electronics that need the transformer (modem, router, hard drive, apple TV, etc, are all using native 220 power).

Thanks!

Jayjeff,

We use the TV only for appleTV (netflix, itunes, etc,) and a NAS media drive, so I am not concerned with receiving terrestrial signals.

Thanks!

Could you also not try something like this

My daughter spent a year as an exchange student for university overseas and she used a convertor for her laptop , hair dryer and other appliances she took.

If you use a converter, make sure it is a transformer type (not made just for hair dryers) and the wattage rating is higher than the TV input rating. There are two types of electronic power supplies, one uses a switch or jumper for 115/230 VAC (this would likely be inside the TV) and the other is a universal power supply that operates from 90 - 264 VAC. The universal type costs more and usually has power factor correction so it is not likely the type used in TVs.
