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.

This sony ccd fx620 plays tapes but they only show in black and white on the TV. Should this unit show in color and if so can it be fixed?

the tv and the camera need to be set at the same system, both on ntsc or both on pal. pal system is used on europe and ntsc in america and japan-.

I Have SONYbravia 55HX800 . It only supports NTSC brought from USA how to change the settings to PAL because i want use the television in INDIA. Please help me with the solution

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.

No,if the tv it is not a Regions free tv set.If the manual or tv dose not say it is a Regions free tv set.All tvs sets u bought in the USA and Canada are alway used and set on NTSC signal frequencies.Which will not work on Asia as PAL systems.

Please advise me what to do: recently I moved to Hungary with Sony TV Bravia KDL-40VL130 bought in the USA. I thought that this advanced TV would work anywhere in the world. However, it turned out it is...

Sorry u can't use this tv,because the US,Mexico and Canada tvs use a signal which run in call the NTSC signal frequencies.The European Union,Asia and the Middle East tvs use a signal which run in call the PAL signal frequencies.So,Pal or NTSC tvs signal frequencies can't not be mix.Can't modtifies these tvs it a PAL or a NTSC tvs and all it eclectronics circuitries run on that signal design frequencies.Those tvs,that call regions free tvs,Those tvs are design to run all over the world.Run on NTSC or PAL signals frequencies.

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.
