Anyways I bought a new 37" Inch Flatscreen TV... It's hooked up to the same surge bar as my computer. My pc is worth $3000 easily... So it's actually worth more than the tv since we got it on sale for $800. Well before I got this new tv I used to have an old 1990's type 23" inch tv on the same surge bar as my pc, but it's obviously out of the room now since it's replaced by the new tv we bought.
Well the old tv had these power specs:
The new tv has these power specs:
AC 100 - 240v
I never had any problems using the old tv on the same surge bar my pc is connected to. I'm quite scared that the new tv may draw too much power or something, and ruin my pc since it's on the same surge bar. That it may make the lights go out in my house and trip the breaker downstairs in the basement. I don't understand the new tv's power specs since it says AC 100 - 240v. So what I'd like to know is:
1. Does the new tv use more power than the old one?
2. Can you please tell me how many watts the new tv uses? I don't know how to convert that stuff from it's specs.
3. I'm assuming it says AC 100-240v on the new tv because the power it draws varies when you do stuff like turn the volume up louder or something like that right? Because if not than why wouldn't it just say AC 100v or AC 240v by itself?
4. If the new tv does use more power than the old tv I shouldn't worry unless the circuit breaker goes off and shuts the lights out in my house right? I believe those are meant to turn off power when there is too much electricity flowing through a single outlet no?
I'll have peace of mind using my pc on the same surge bar as my new tv, providing my new tv requires less or roughly the same wattage as my old tv. Because the old one never gave me any kind of problem for years while using it at the same time I used my pc.
- Thank You
