Hi,

Offhand no, conventional US TVs are designed to operate on NTSC whereas to my knowledge, Argentina uses PAL.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

DVD Regions Information The DVD region code identifies a DVD's compatibility...


DVD Regions Information

The DVD region code identifies a DVD's compatibility with the players typically sold in a particular region.


Region 0 (or "region free") is compatible with DVD players from any region.

The majority of all current titles play only in one specific region unless otherwise noted. DVDs sold by Amazon.co.uk are encoded for Region 2 or Region 0. Region 2 DVDs may not work on DVD players in other countries.

Region 1 DVDs sold by Marketplace sellers

Region 1 discs are intended for use with standard DVD players in North America (Canada and the USA). In most instances they can also be played on compatible "multi-region" DVD players (also known as "chipped" or "region-free" players).

They also require an NTSC-compatible television. NTSC is the standard picture format in North America, and differs from the PAL format adopted in Britain and Europe. Region 1 DVDs are usually presented in NTSC format, so you should ensure that your TV is capable of reading the NTSC signal before purchasing Region 1 DVDs.

Regional Coding Enhancement (RCE)

Regional Coding Enhancement (RCE) has been added by some film studios (specifically Warner and Columbia) to selected Region 1 DVDs, with the intention of preventing these discs from playing on some multi-region DVD players. We are therefore unable to guarantee that all Region 1 discs will be compatible with all multi-region players.

some tv are not made for all type of color system. you can read the users manual for forther details. if your tv is multisystem, u can see the menu of your color tv by pressing menu button on remote. it sould be under picture settings or under tunning settings. some set top box provide color system choice. so to get correct color you need to get setellite receiver which has option to change the color system to NTSC.

BOUGHT A TV I N THE USA BROUGHT TO SWEDEN I CAN ONLY SEE THE HEADS OF THE TV SOUNDS OK BUT IT LOOKS LIKE A LITTLE ISLAND IN THE MIDDLE OF IT CAN,T PULL U MINU CAN IT BE FIXED


I don't know a whole lot about TV's but I don't think TV's purchased in the USA will work in Sweden unless they were designed specifically for overseas use. In North America we use a system called NTSC and I believe that in Sweden you use PAL. If the TV has the ability to change the setting with a switch you should set it to PAL.

I assume you are running it off of a step-down transformer to cut the voltage (if you don't want it to blow). In North America TV sets are designed for 110 volts. Don't you have 220 there?

You may also have to change the hertz rate to the proper rate there too I believe (forget what it is -- 50 to 60 or vice versa. You may have to call up a technician there ask, or somebody on this site might know). Some TV's simply have a switch on the back that will enable you to do this if they have been designed for both North American and European use.

if your vcr is a multisystem, select the proper system in your vcr for the video to be played. but if not, you cannot play your PAL in your NTSC vcr. good luck!
