A UK Xbox will work on a uk TV, which uses the PAL colour system. Canada use NTSC so the image is black and white. Can the Xbox be configured for NTSC ?

What voltage converter should I have to use this DVD in Canada?


Hello, Jarosaw -

Clarification: You are asking about a DVD player?

I have no idea where you reside now. If you reside in the USA and want to use your DVD player in Canada, you do not need any kind of voltage converter. Both Canada and the USA use 120 volt electrical service.

If you live in the United Kingdom and wish to use your U.K. DVD (220 volts) player in Canada (120 volts), I refer you to the information here:
https://whatplug.info/from/uk/to/canada

If you are not in the U.K., I suggest you use your favorite search engine to find the proper kind of voltage converters for electronics purchased in the country where you are located, so you may use them in Canada. I used Google with the following search strategy, using quotation marks as shown:
"voltage converter" "220 v to 120 v"
Or, you can use this kind of search strategy, with quotation marks as shown:
"voltage converter" "Your Country to Canada"
Example:
"voltage converter" "New Zealand to Canada"

Best wishes.

I bought brand new lg in canada i can only see black and white in malta is there anything i can do


The set from Canada is like those from the USA(I am currently in southern Alberta but live in USA).

Canada and America both use the NTSC system for sets---I suspect where you are now (aside from possible voltage differences) the system is PAL or even SECAM.

What you need to look into getting is a unit that will take the PAL/SEACAM and convert it to NTSC.

Seen this before from someone in the down under who had same issue.

See if a converter is available to do this. (Note that Pal will usually come out black and white when going to a NTSC TV.

Boxing day was interesting this year but you have another issue.

I have an xbox 360 from the US and am now living in Ireland. Is there a plug that I can order to get power here and are the games purchased in Ireland compatable with the US console?


Games bought in Ireland are not compatible with your US console. So rather than buying a converter plug, you're better off buying a new Xbox 360 console. (Of course if you have brought games with you from the US these will ONLY work on your US console, meaning you need a plug. You should be able to find a converter in an electronics store.)
But do not forget that certain games are region free (meaning any console can play it, regardless of where the console was bought.
Just to warn you so you don't buy the same game for both your consoles, when you may not need to.
You can find a list of compatible games vs consoles here:
Region Free Xbox 360 Games

NTSC-U/C - US + Canada

NTSC/U - USA

PAL - Europe

NTSC/J - Japan

Hope this helps. =]

Not enough electric to power xbox 360


Hi

Oh dear sorry to hear that, What a mare! you will need a piece of equipment called an 'Inverter', this will convert the 110v (usual voltage in these countries) to 240v and you should have hours of fun :)

I hope this helps

Let me know

Cheers

Will this appliance work in England


If the power requirements for line voltage are compatible with the UK supply, then yes it will work. If the unit was designed for 120-volt operation in the US, then no. You'd burn it up on the UK 240-volt power system.

Xbox 360 issues


Hi Demirtas,
I'll try and help you out...
1.  You could try the paper clip method but I wouldn't recommend it, if you are able to take your console to a near by games store they may open it for you using one of their power bricks...
2.  You'd have to run the correct voltage through the console or you could cause irreversible damage to the unit, you don't want to fry the motherboard!  You could pick up a pre-owned brick or use a voltage converter...
3. Yes you can use any power brick as long as the voltage is correct..
I hope this helps a bit, sorry if not.  Please rate!
Thank you!

110 volt usa xbox 360 to work in a 220volt country


Hi,

The first possibility is that it was simply a faulty transformer, however the more lilkey problem is the transformer was not of a sufficient power to run the Xbox 360, you need to make sure that you buy a transformer that can supply at least 300w of power as this is what the xbox 360 requires, some cheaper models may have difficulty with this.

Further information about step down convertors can be read here

Thanks,

Power brick red light


yeah you definitly need to have a uk to usa power converter. you guys run on 220V which would create way more current then needed which is why the power supply blew. I hope you didnt fry any internal parts in the 360. You need to get a power converter that gives you 120V.
