You might need to input a code on your VCR Remote. Try looking it up on the Internet.

My tv has NTSC system but our local transmission is pal system. so picture is black & white and has no audio


It seems you are going to have to buy a PAL to NTSC converter box, check out the following info i got from eHow.

NTSC, or National Television System Committee, is the system used to broadcast television that is still analog in North and South America and parts of Asia. PAL, or Phase Alternate Line, is one of the other two analog broadcast systems used in much of the rest of the world. If you are in an area that can pick up both, but your television is made to receive only one of them, you can buy an PAL-to-NTSC converter that will allow the correct input to your TV.

Purchase a PAL-NTSC converter. Most mid-range converters will convert back and forth between either system, so if you're not sure which system your television picks up, you can buy one of the dual converters. See the References section for an example of a mid-range converter. When you purchase, choose either 110V or 220V power source, and which country you are ordering from (you will need the appropriate power cord adapter for your country).

Plug the included connector cord from the "Input" (or possibly "Antennae") jack on the back of your television to the "Output" on the converter. Also, plug the power adapter into a floor jack or other power supply.

Move the Input switch to PAL and the Output switch to NTSC on the converter if it is a dual converter. This will enable you to receive PAL TV signals and convert them for your NTSC TV.

Is the TV a USA model? In which case it will use the NTSC system of colour and not the PAL one. You will need to check if the TV can be switch to PAL system for DVD or if the DVD can output it as NTSC. Or you need a convertor box.

I'm sorry to inform you that the TV cannot be used directly with PAL color system. However, you can use a PAL to NTSC converter to resolve the issue. You can get the PAL to NTSC converter from any local Electronics Shop.

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

That's a problem with the video IC it might shorted. You need to send your TV now to the nearest electronic repair center and have it fix there.

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.

PAL to NTSC conversion

This is not a converting unit, it will play the format of the tape inside. To convert the signal you need one of the following:

1) A converting VHS player; they are fairly expensive.
2) A separate video converter (hardware); they run for about $200-$500; just put this between your VCR and the TV.
3) Capture the PAL on your computer using a software like Movie Maker via a Firewire cable. Than convert it to NTSC on your machine using software like Nero... do a search on Google for converting software. Or just watch it on our computer in PAL format, most computers do that... For this step I use a separate camcoder that has a passthrough feature. The VCR connects to it and the camcorder connects to the computer via Firewire.
4) send the PAL tape to a specialized shop for conversion. They normally charge $30-$40 for a regular 2h VHS tape.

Pal to NTSC

Hi, Based on your post/description, you need to get a multi-system TV to go with your multi system VCR if you are going to playback VHS tapes from different regions. You are quite correct "Plays NTSC tapes to NTSC, Will not Play Pal to NTSC" to play PAL (even Secam) you would need a PAL/Secam TV. They have a different system for color and audio. In some cases, you can still play PAL but you get it in black & white and picture squeezed from top & bottom. Hope this be of some help to you. Good luck and kind regards.
