I am currently in singapore and am on my way to Egypt for 4 weeks and am looking at buying a panasonic digital camcorder NV-GS55 to record my trip. The question though is that it is a PAL system and i live in Canada (NTSC). i have a Hitachi 53inch rear projection tv that i paid 3500 for about 2 years ago and am not sure if it is PAL compatible. i don't intend to watch much on it anyways and will probably watch most of it on my computer. Am i setting myself up for a big headache or will i be able to watch any of the movies on my pc?
i leave singapore in two days and i'd love to have a video camera if there is an easy way.

Re: urgent - pal ntsc
Pal and NTSC are different formats. If you live in Canada, you?re TV most likely supports NTSC and not PAL. If you bought your TV and it said it is multisystem, so you won?t have problems with if, but i am almost sure this is not you case. If you want it for your PC, you will need to get a program to change your videos from PAL to NTSC. What I would recommend you to do is to buy a miltisystem camera; the format transformation isn't the easiest way.

This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be repaired qualified service technician. .

Try ejecting cassette whilst powered from AC Adaptor. Secondly, try operating Eject from powered off mode. If operation LED starts flashing after any of these attempts, the mechanism is probably jammed or has become mis-timed. Unfortunately this requires professional intervention to avoid further damage to your equipment.
I hope this information is of assistance!
If you do not have an adaptor to play the tapes to a standard VHS viseo player, you can use the camera as the player by connecting the AV out to a DVD recorder.
There are hundreds of models in the market, and do not worry if it is NTSC or PAL because 99% of DVD recorder accepts both.
