I am afraid this reply is too late, but if you happen to stop by the site: The set has a built-in NTSC tuner, with no PAL tuner, as it is advertised in the US. So the answer is: No, you can't do PAL.

But if your manual says it has the PAL tuner, then you should be able to find a switch on the set or a button on the remote to change over to PAL.

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.

Will a LG LED TV model 42LV3500 bought in Canada work in India

I'm sorry to inform you that the TV is not directly compatible with the power and color system available in India. The TV is only designed to work with 120V/60 Hz and NTSC color System. The power specification in India is 230V/50Hz. The color system is PAL.

However, you can use a Voltage converter and PAL to NTSC converter to make use of the TV in India.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

I have an LG 17LX1R LCD TV/monitor that won't go on. The power light on the TV flashed red . . . but that's it.

My LG 17LX1R had a almost the same problem. Red standby went to green for 1-2 seconds then back to red standy. Turned out to be bad caps on the power supply board. Yours is definately going to need to be opened up. Not a generic fix. You gotta ask yourself if its worth fiixing a 6-7 year old LCD tv with limited LCD life. New ones can be had for about $130-150.

Convert ntsc to pal for sony bravia tv

While a modern PAL TV can display NTSC sources (namely DVD players and PAL VHS players that support pseudo-NTSC), an NTSC TV can not display a PAL source, unless it's an expensive multi-standard TV. Sorry pal, bad choice.

Cant see Picture

Nope. The AV inputs except a composite video signal that is either NTSC or PAL. You will need to convert the PAL signal to NTSC.

Sony Bravia KDL 52 XBR-5

If you purchased the TV in the US, it is probably strictly for use with the NTSC system and will not work with any PAL components. You can get some multi fornat devices (DVD, VCR) that will output NTSC, PAL and Secam. That is probably your best option.
