TV Samsung Country Code
Samsung indicates in the TV model number for which country or region the TV is made. On the one hand, this is necessary so that the TVs are delivered to countries in accordance with the standards of the region or country. On the other hand, all electronics manufacturers are trying to minimize the cost of warranty service. So, according to Samsung policy, only those TVs that are officially designed for a specific country are subject to warranty repair. Let’s explain how it works, for example, you live in the UK, you went to France and bought a TV there. You watch it without problems, but suddenly it broke, you go to the workshop, and they say sorry, we can’t repair your TV under the guarantee it was bought in France. It is determined by the letter code in the model number TXXC– France, TXXU United Kingdom.
What does FXZA mean in Samsung TV model number
So the last four letters in the model number of the TV mean the following information.
- U – indicates the type of digital tuners that are installed on the TV. There are several digital television standards in the world. In Europe, the DVB standard is adopted, which in turn combines several sub-standards. Digital terrestrial television, cable, satellite DVB T / C / S, as well as versions of the standards, so far, that there are only two for each standard. Therefore, the TV may have several options for digital tuners.
- As a result, DVB standard televisions are marked with the letters K, L, P, R, S, T, U, W
- In the USA, Canada, Mexico, the ATSC standard is adopted and televisions with tuners of this standard are marked F.
- X – differences in design.
Region code on Samsung TVs
- ZA – the last two letters indicate the region and country. In this case, these are televisions for the USA, Mexico. Why the region, for example, for the USA and Mexico, absolutely identical televisions with the FXZA marking are produced. Also for almost all of Africa, televisions have the same model numbers.
Many are interested in the question of whether the TV purchased in the UK, for example, in Germany, will work normally. The answer is yes, it will work fine. Since most models have similar digital tuners.
But then why divide the TVs by country? And here the company already considers the cost of warranty service. If you bring the TV to Germany from Poland and it breaks at you. Then, when applying for a guarantee to a service center, you will be refused a free repair, since the TV is released for another region.
If we look at the United States, Canada, Mexico, the televisions are the same and are going to either the United States or Mexico. But for Mexico and the United States the same labeling (ZA). For Canada, another (ZC) is why there are differences.
This is done for the following reason between the United States and Mexico, a fairly large flow of goods. In addition, almost the same warranty conditions. For the manufacturer there is not much difference. A television will be bought in Mexico and brought to the United States or vice versa. The same TV models are produced for both the United States and Mexico.
In Canada, other conditions of the guarantee, if in the USA, as a rule, the master arrives on a call to the buyer. In Canada, because of the large distances between the cities, the master of the service center does not go to the buyer, and the buyer must bring the TV to the service center. This is stipulated in the warranty conditions for televisions sold in stores. Therefore, Samsung divides TVs by region.
