Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

I have a Samsung LN408500 LCD TV that was bought in Canada, and when i tried to plug in my sister's Wii (Also bought in canada) the screen was black and white.. I googled my issue and different websites and forums suggested changed from PAL to NTSC or vice-versa, but i can't find the option in the setting that would allow me to change this.

Well, unfortunately your TV supports only the NTSC System, while the most of South American states are using the PAL TV System.
Your only chance is to connect a TV tuner supporting both system to make the conversion between the systems.

SOURCE: using NTSC device on PAL TV

Hello
If you can buy one NTSC to PAL converter, you can use this device with your TV which has only PAL system. But it will be very difficult to get it from New Zeland, as these type of device will have no market at your country, and the no dealers will stock it of sell it. I assumes that your daughter is now in US or other countries, whch have only NTSC system adopted for both transmission and reception. Just ask her, whether dhe can get this type of device there. OK.

I hit the screen with the wii remote. its damaged


It is obvious that the screen is cracked and must be replaced. There are a few problems in doing that. First, it is NEVER covered b warranty. Second, the LCD panel likely cost at least double the price you paid for the TV, if it is even available. Many are not available. Time to shop for another set. Sorry; John

Is it a new TV? I am not familiar with the Ireland/Canada signals. But it could be a PAL/NTSC conversion issue.

There may be multiple problems with your nintendo wii if there is no picture showing your AV cable may be broke i would buy a new one if thats not it return it buy a AV cable somewhere where there is a loose return policy if this doesnt work i believe UK and Canadian electric outlets are different.

Plug in the wii system and everything comes in black and white


Try plugging it into another scart socket, this sometimes happens when a tv does not support 60hz. the result is a screen that has no colour. You could try just plugging it onto the seperate av inputs. Most tv's these days have one scart that will work ok and in colour.

Europran wii


Wii consoles are region-specific and different regions also use different television standards.

You have potentially three problems:
  1. Wii consoles are region-specific. Games for US/Canada won't work in a European Wii
  2. European Wii consoles output PAL video signals. US/Canada/Japan TVs except NTSC video signals.
  3. European Wii consoles likely require 220-volt power. US/Canada/Japan is 100-120-volt power.
So now your solutions for each:
  1. You need to get games from France (or at least Europe)
    You can also look into a device called the Freeloader, but I'm not sure if it works with Wii games yet (the original allowed Gamecube consoles to play games from different regions)
  2. You'll need a multi-standard TV, or a television standards converter. Tourist-y camera shops often sell converter boxes. You need to convert from a PAL video signal to an NTSC video signal in order to connect it to your TV.
  3. Check the power adapter of the Wii. If it lists "110-240 volts" or "100-240 volts" (at least a voltage number in the 100-something range) on it, then the power supply will work and you just need an international plug adapter. You can get these from most travel stores and electronics stores.
    If the power adapter does not list a voltage in the 100-something range on it, then you will need a step-up transformer - that will convert power from 120-volt to 220-volt or 240-volt. The transformer may or may not have the right type of power receptacle, so you may also need a plug adapter. Check your local electronics store for this. Tell them you have a device from Europe and want to run it on your local electrical power. They should know what you need. If you have a choice, get one that is designed for computer or laptop use, as the cheaper ones provide "dirty" power which is fine for hair dryers and such, but bad for electronics.
Hope that helps...
