PAL TV in US

I am looking for some assistance/advice regarding a pioneer PDP 507-XD that I own.

Irecently moved to California and brought the plasma with me. It was myunderstanding that the unit could display the NTSC signal that isstandard in the United States. I purchased an adapter which has changedthe F connector on the coaxial cable that provides the digital cablefeed to a IEC169-2 PAL antenna adapter which I have then connected tothe plasma. However, I now have problems displaying the picturecorrectly. The signal is being picked up through auto-installation asan analogue signal and the closest I get to a reasonable picture isthrough using manual adjust and changing to SECAM. However even this isstill black and white and has a distorted line through it.

Inotice that there is a an option to change the colour system to NTSC inInput 1 and Input 2 but I am unsure how to set up my system to feed thecoaxial into either of these two inputs.

Canyou please tell me if in fact the PDP 507-XD is capable of correctlydisplaying the picture from a US digital cable box using acoaxial cable and if so how I should go about achieving this?

Any help that you are able to offer would be most appreciated.

Thanks

Mark

We have had problems switching on our Pioneer PDP-507XD plasma tv. The standby light just flashes. We were advised to change the power supply unit. We hav4e done this and it has not solved the problem ...


I've been running across a lot of plasma tvs where the power supplies are not bad, but the X & Y-sustain boards are faulty. My advice is to change those boards out as they are responcible for lighting the plasma gasses in the tv. You can attempt to replace one at a time (cost reasons), but it is recommended to changed both at once.



Hope this helps, please rate. :)
