In response to the report that some types of Samsung LCD TVs have been banned in Australia, a representative from Samsung China has admitted that the problematic television sets are also sold in China.
However, the representative has told local media that these televisions should not cause problems for Chinese users.
The four types of Samsung LCD televisions are LA40M81, LA46M81, LA32R81 and LA40R8. Their sales have been stopped in Australia because their digital television signal adapters do not conform with the local digital TV transmission standard, but they reportedly don't have any other quality problems. At present, these types of televisions are sold in China, but they won't affect consumers' normal use as the digital television standard has not been popularized yet in China.
Regarding the report that some of Samsung's 42-inch plasm TVs have such technical defects as blank screens, Samsung says that this type of plasma TV is also sold in China, but there is not any identified problem with them, so far.
