NTSC -> PAL converter: would it help my prob with my PS3?

We have this LG tv model: lg4250 with NTSC and Our PS3 from EU (Europe) which gives out a PAL signal which renders the output using HDMI's blank and my AV's all black and white and fuzzy. my question is would it help me to fix my fuzzy problem if i use a PAL to NTSC converter? or should i just buy the YGBRW component jacks? thank you for helping me out!

You'll need to buy the converter. Ebay usually has them for the best price around. If you wanna keep the hdmi they're usually around $200 for the converter. You could save yourself a bit of trouble depending on your situation by just selling your pal ps3 and getting an ntsc version instead.

Let me know if you have more questions.

Best of Luck!

    it should work but u never know when you're dong a conversion. You might also want to try adjusting a few of the hdmi settings on your PS3 under the display settings.

    On the XMB go to Settings ---> BD/DVD Settings ---> BD 1080p 24 Hz Output (HDMI)

    That might fix the problem, it's worth trying.

My PS3 plays some movies but some say my region code is not correct so I was wondering how to fix it.


Your region code is based off of where you got your PS3, the regions are US(NTSC), Japan(NTSC-J), and Europe(PAL). The only way to fix this is to reburn your DvD's after converting them with dvdShrink

No sound on playing games but have sound on movies


You need to check your audio settings
1) ensure they are correct
2) ensure games are ntsc if your region is ntsc and not pal because video might revert and not audio.
3) If wma is enabled make sure you are using ntsc again and also
4) If the ps3 is using jailbreak game could be corrupt
but i would guess it could be 2 so check your tv settings properly because pal games work when ps3 is in pal mode and ntsc when ps3 is in ntsc mode with sound.

Black and white display screen


If you have an HDTV use HDMI or component to connect to get colour...if you have an SDTV and use the RGB cables unfortunately the PS3 will output NTSC signals for JApan/NA and your SDTV will accept PAL signals (EU). THere may be an adapter, but if you have an HDTV this problem should solve itself via HDMI/component cables.

Region code blocks DVD


Hi, you have to delete de region coding on your DVD, by using a computer (either a mac or PC, or linux) then you can play it. However, if the format is not the same (PAL&NTSC) it's gonna be impossible : for instance, if your PS3 is NTSC, you wont be able to playback PAL content, however, I think it might be possible to the opposite for PAL PS3 owners, since every PAL DVD player can read NTSC (but practically, none of NTSC player read PAL ...) Sad indeed mate.

Its a pain in the *** willing to try converting PAL to NTSC. You better forget it .... However, if its just a region code issue, as I said first, you can just backup it up deleting the CSS (it's illegal... whatever) and burning the region-unlocked movie to a blank DVD and play it ^^

Bought american playstation games on holidays and cannot get them to work on my irish console? is there a programe i need to download


Hey nnaughton1,

Unfortunately, the problem that you're encountering is most likely the difference in broadcasting standards between Europe and North America/Japan. North American and Japanese PS3's and games are made to be NTSC-format complaint, as that is the broadcasting standard used in those areas. In Europe however, the PAL format is used instead, so PS3's and games sold there are generally PAL-compliant. In order for a game to function correctly on any console, it should be in the same format as the console itself.

Please keep in mind that while PS3 games may be “region-free,” Sony does not currently provide official support for NTSC/PAL conversion on PS3 consoles.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Pal or ntsc


Hey abinanth,

NTSC and PAL refer to two different analog TV broadcasting standards. In North America and Japan, PS2's and other electronic devices generally are sold in the NTSC format only, as that is the standard used in those parts of the world. PAL devices, on the other hand, are primarily used in Europe, Australia and portions of Asia.

While NTSC and PAL do share some similar properties, images are not displayed the same way on a TV screen with both formats. What this means for the average consumer is that in order to ensure that a PS2 will work with their TV, it will probably need to be purchased in the format used in their home country.

Please keep in mind that while NTSC-to-PAL/PAL-to-NTSC adaptors do exist, many electronic devices (including PS2's) are still subject to regional lockouts that prevent the use of any media/discs that were not purchased in the same region of the world.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Playstation 3 for europe


All the machine manufacture for Usa work on 110 volt 60 hz and the format is Ntsc.You should check availability on line about region Format like NTSC-PAL -PAL2 SECAM and which country are using the same, and make sure the hz is 50.Most of the new Game system support Dual Voltage But not the Ps3.You need to let your seller check on the machine tag to make sure everything is correct like 220v 50 hz.
