Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Wii image gone

Wii was working fine for few days and I was seeing what difference switching settings would have.( silly me !)
I switched from 50 hz to 60 hz and screen then lost the image ( just "whiteish" screen) Can hear that its on and when moving remote can tell its "on" behind the white screen but can't see menu to change it back to 50hz.( if thats the problem)
Tried resetting and get a momentary flash of the start up image before whitescreen appears again. Can anyone help ?

Try connecting to a tv that supports 60hz. But you should read up on this stuff before you do anything like that again. Understand , understand? alright! but do not do anything like that again!

Need to transform 120v power to 240v

Bad news:

UK has 50 Hz electricity, and appliances are rated for local power..
Any appliance made for US market is rated 60 Hz.
50 Hz and 60 Hz electricity are different.

Look at label on your mixer, and then look at labels on local appliances. You will see 50 cycles or 60 cycles. Rarely appliances are labeled 50-60 cycles.

Hz Hertz or cycles or frequency is number of rotations the electric generator turns per second.

Some appliances are rated 50-60 cycles and will work worldwide.
However most appliances are rated 50 or rated 60 but not both.
60 cycle motor will not perform as expected when connected to 50 cycles. And might overheat.
Generally, most motors can be converted to different voltages by taking motor to motor shop (if you can find one these day)
However electronic controls cannot be converted between 120V and 230V, nor will 50 Hz electronics work with 60 Hz power

Sorry Sue.
Buy another mixer.
Business will benefit from surge of consumer buying.

How do I program the H5CX ASN timer to turn on 5 mins and off 25 mins in an endless cycle. I don't understand the term Output Mode so from that point the instructions become meaningless.


I believe you have 230Volt 50 Hz electric power.
Omron is rated 50-60 hz
US timers are rated 60 Hz.
Maximum load on Omron timer is 5amp at 230 volt
Timer should be connected to 2-pole contactor (relay) instead of directly connected to pump.

Does Amazon sell percentage cycle timer in your country?
A cycle timer makes one full revolution each hour, or 4-hours, or 12 hours. Then percentage is set for 8% for 1 hour cycle.
Contact Intermatic and ask if they have 50 cycle percentage cycle timer, or ordinary cycle timer in 50 Hz.

Will a UK SONY KDF - E50A12U LCD Projection TV work in the USA?

In the United States we have one flavor of electrical power. That is 117 VAC (Volts Alternating Current) at a (alternating) signal of 60 Hz.
Hz stands for a man named Hertz who discovered the phenomena of frequency in the 19th century. It was originally was called "cycles per second" but has been renamed long ago.

The UK uses 220 VAC at 50 Hz which is a different flavor of electricity.

Since Sony (as do most manufacturers) produce sets for the differences in regional use your set simply won't work in the U.S. There are transformers available to convert 220 VAC to 120 VAC (Your set draws 210 Watts when it's on and 17 W when it's off. That means you need a fairly heavy duty transformer to make the change. Unfortunately because your set was set up to work with 50 Hz (it is branded as a British production set)
I wouldn't risk operating it at 60Hz which is the type the U.S. uses. Besides that your tuner is designed to receive a different format video than the United States uses.

New Nintendo Wii

check you've got it on the right PAL/NTSC setting.It's very likely the 50/60hz setting. 480i running at 60hz is NTSC resolution although the PAL Wii of course uses the PAL signal. The TV probably tries to interpret the signal as a real NTSC signal because it's 480i 60hz and thus can't handle the colors. There has got to be an option to switch between NTSC and PAL.
Are you using the same SCART socket that you use for your other consoles or a different one? My SCART3 input on my Panasonic telly has two different modes - one which displays in colour, and one which displays in a sort of grainy black n' white. There is a purpose to it but I can't remember what it is. :-)

Anyway, you switch between the two by pushing the AV button and then hitting the colour button which corresponds to SCART3 a few times 'til you reach the correct setting.

It probably isn't that, but... y'know. Sanity check.

Try a different driver if your not happy, remove cam and uninstall driver again through add/remove programmes. When you re connect use a different USB port if available. Sometimes the frequency needs to be set at 50HZ, the same as an Eye toy when it's used as a web cam, as the drivers are usually multi country.
