Will my Australian DVD recorder & Plasma TV work in the USA?

Hi there - purchased in Australia, I own a Panasonic Viera digital Plasma TV Model no. TH-50PX70A, a Panasonic DVD Recorder Model no. DMR-EX85, and a LG wireless DVD receiver system (home theatre) Model no. LH-W750TA. I understand that I would need to buy a converter for each of these to adjust the voltage/wattage differences. Aside from this, is there any reason any of these 3 devices would not function properly if we brought them with us when we move to the USA? Thanks, Natalie

Hi. No they won't work. Different systems here (found out the hard way). Ironically we are now moving back to Australia from New Jersey and we have nearly the exact same system that we have to sell before coming back !

I have a Panasonic TX-P42VT20 and a SCART switching box from a number of devices (2nd Satellite receiver, DVD players etc.). This works fine with my old TV, but I only get sound and no video when I connect...


I expect the new Plasma is configured to RGB or S video. Check your menu settings and adjust to whatever the old TV was set at. Composite Video I suspect!

Connecting JVC television set model AV29LX2 / JVC home theatre system/satellite decoder / Sony DVD recorder


You need to buy a splitter in order to put one to the DVD recorder and one to the tv from the decoder. You should be able to get one at the Local Radio Shack or other electronics store.

If you need help locating a store, please let me know

Otherwise Thank you for using Fixya and Have a Good Day!

and Good Luck...

My volume stopped working on my panasonic viera plasma TV


Make certain that it is not muted or turned off. If it isn't check to make sure that the audio type matches what you are watching. If you are on SAP and there isn't anything on the channel in SAP the audio will be dead. If all those check out you probably have a bad control board. $130 to $200 to fix. Let me know how things work out.

I'm confused about HD (high definition) and digital


In Australia analogue TV signals will be phased out and finished by the end of 2009 (I think).
If you have a standard analogue TV you won't be able to receive any more free to air analogue TV programs when they stop brocasting these TV signals. To recieve the new digital signals you need to buy a digital set top box (which receives digital TV signals and converts it to analogue signal that can be displayed on your old TV). The set top box will only receive Standard Definition signals and this is a lower screen resolution that is available from High Definition signals.

Digital TV signals offer approx. 15 TV channels ln High definition and Standard Definition, different programs channels will be available from the same TV broadcaster, although the High Definition pograms will also be repeated on one of the Standard Definition channels.

High Definition gives a sharper image than Standard dedinition, but you may not notice much difference because it depends much on the material you are viewing, You will notice how clear DVD and BlueRay movies are compared with the VCR tapes. To get the best images from DVD movies your player must be connected to the HDMI connector on your High Definition TV (provided your DVD player has one, usually BlueRay players will have one, they also will play normal DVD disks).

If you purchase a new High Definition TV you will also be able to receive all the Digital TV programs. Currrently these TVs are avail in Plasma or LCD screens and there are newer technologies within a few years. The Plasma screens use twice as much energy (electricity) as a LCD screen. It is suggested that the viewing distance to the TV should be 3.5 times the size of the TV screen.

Hope this answers your query.
Get back to me if you have any more questions.

We have just moved from he uk to perth


I beieve you have a TV standards prolem. According to the chart available at the website below, the UK is PAL I and the Aussies use PAL B/G. So if you bought a TV in Australia and are using the DVD Combo from the UK I think you are out of luck. A reputable TV repair shop would be able to answer further questions about this without charge.
