No color TV on my Trutech 7'' LCD TV + DVD under the cabinet model KLV3170


The TV broadcast system in Brazil is PAL-M.
If this TV was bought from the US then the TV will be expecting the NTSC system.
Your other American TV may be a multi standard TV and is able to detect and adapt to your PAL broadcast system. Not all TVs do this.

How do you connect the DVD to the Trutech TV? Is it with a Scart connector? If so then the TV will not be using any broadcast standard at all and that is why it works properly.

Unfortunately if you have searched all the menus and manual instructions without finding a TV system selection, then this TV may never be able to receive TV broadcast in colour.

Why cant i change the tint of my picture? the menue keeps skipping the tint option


If you're watching UK TV broadcasts then we don't have a need for tint. Similarly, with HDMI sources you shouldn't need tint either because the TV's colour decoder isn't active.

Tint is a throw-back to the American analogue TV system called NTSC. Their system doesn't lock the colour phase to the sync signal. So depending how far the TV was from the transmitter the colour would be further and further out of whack. Hence the industry joke that NTSC stood for Never Twice (the) Same Colour ...N - T - S - C. The Tint control was used to re-time the colour signal. The UK didn't have this issue because our TV system (PAL - Phase Alternate Line) includes information to lock the colour signal phase.

Strictly speaking, Tint is only required with NTSC analogue composite signals. This is where the brightness information is mixed with colour on a sub-carrier frequency. So, that would be signals via an aerial lead or from the yellow video connection which is how most of us first see a composite signal. These signals are encoded as NTSC. Any signals where the colour and brightness (luma) information is kept separate shouldn't need Tint. So, S-video, Component and RGB at 60Hz all bypass a TVs NTSC decoder. If the TV is correctly designed then the Tint option should not be available. Some TV manufacturers break the convention though, for the simple reason that many old school US consumers grew up adjusting Tint, so it's too much of a culture shock to take away that feature.

To recap then, if Tint isn't available then it's because the signal doesn't need that adjustment. The colour timing is already bang on accurate.

I bought a sanyo tv hdmi 1080p from california while on vacation and took it to Nigeria where I live. However when connected there was no clear picture no colour and no sound. What could be responsible?...


There are several different television standards in the world.

American TV's will only work correctly in North and South America. Japan and South Korea use a similar system but not identical.

The channel frequencies are different and the channel bandwidths are different.

The color systems are also different - NTSC/ATSC, PAS, SECAM.

Even the sound frequencies are different.

Do UK and US tvs have different model numbers? I have looked at several tvs in UK stores and when I search for them online I can hardly find any reference to them. I thought this might be because most...


USA TV's have different model numbers to UK one's, because the USA uses different power voltages and colour system to the UK, so a USA TV in working in the UK would need a power adapter. Shipping costs would be higher and incresed risks of faults from transit knocks!
Amazon, Richer Sounds, and E-Buyer have good sets try them.

Nope. UK TVs are set up for PAL video format, which isn't compatible with NTSC format.
The only way to do it would be to get a modchip for your Wii (I personally don't recommend this), or find somebody with an American TV.

Black and white playback with sony handycam dcr-hc20


There is no problem on your camera, DCR-HC19E is PAL system(European system) DCR-HC20 is NTSC(American system). Are you in US or Europe? I think your TV is NTSC, cause the tape recorded on DCR-HC19E you played has no color. To confirm, connect your HC20 to TV in camera mode, not recording yet, just look at the TV as your monitor, If its in color, no problem, just erase the old video recorded on the HC19E, but if its important to you, you can convert it to NTSC using a PC. thanks

No sound


Go into the TV Menu and access the sound settings, for the UK it would normally be set to I. This MAY need to be changed to a different setting. Try the options that are listed. Might fix it!!
