Help Needed To Convert NTSC LCD TV from the USA To PAL by Olori(m): 1:15am On Sep 06, 2010
A friend brought a  40 inch SONY LCD television to Nigeria from the US but because Nigeria uses the PAL system for our VIDEO signals unlike North America that is on NTSC. The TV is showing black and white including distorted video from the dvd,dstv and even normal antenna.

Please is there any one in the house that can help with a NTSC to PAL Converter?

Thanks for your help.

Very easy, you don't need a converter. Just switch the color system on the tv remote, to PAL. There should be options of SECAM, PAL, NTSC on tvs of this day and age.

Switch to HDMI as input. Get a DSTV HD decoder, it'll output from a HDMI port so the usual PAL/NTSC restrictions shouldnt apply. Ditto for the DVD. Any decent DVD player (hint: Not those 7,500 naira ones) should do HDMI output too.

Can't do anything about the analog TV. But you can buy the PAL to NTSC converter from some electronics shops. I suggest you try Alaba, it's cheap.

@TexassMan

Thanks for this information. All i need to hear is that there is DSTV HD box. I have been thinking about buying a Mulit-System Tv but you don't get the actual spec you need.

You can change the colour system in your DSTV decoder in TV installation in the menu. Remember the PIN is 9949.
It is strange your TV isnt multi system. As far as I know, alll modern TVs are multisystem connecting via AV (composite, component and HDMI). They only have issues with the tuners.

American tvs and media players are usually single system, lord knows why especially in this day and age.
Re: Help Needed To Convert NTSC LCD TV from the USA To PAL by zebudaya(m): 5:04pm On Dec 05, 2011
Hello Olori did you figure this out? did the dstv hd decoder work for you? Did anyone else figure this out?
Re: Help Needed To Convert NTSC LCD TV from the USA To PAL by dydroy: 8:45am On Dec 06, 2011
I use a pal->ntsc signal converter for mine, and it works quite well.
I have not tried sojiogun's suggestion though, might just give it a try.
Re: Help Needed To Convert NTSC LCD TV from the USA To PAL by zebudaya(m): 12:46pm On Dec 06, 2011
Thank you for you reply. Where did you buy the converter from and what's the make/model and cost ?
Re: Help Needed To Convert NTSC LCD TV from the USA To PAL by niyooo(m): 6:52pm On Jan 29, 2012
Any response to zebudaya's question? Where can one get the NTSC PAL converter in Lagos?
Re: Help Needed To Convert NTSC LCD TV from the USA To PAL by dydroy: 8:36pm On Sep 13, 2012

Re: Help Needed To Convert NTSC LCD TV from the USA To PAL by Ajillo: 1:34pm On Oct 13, 2012
Funny DSTV decoder is set for PAL 1 and PAL G only. You can't change it to NTSC. Why?

Re: Help Needed To Convert NTSC LCD TV from the USA To PAL by dydroy: 5:44pm On Oct 18, 2012
Mentioned above that i got one for sale, used for a couple months but with all the accessories and pack still intact.
If you're still interested i can get it for you whenever you're ready! It's composite video input (eg standard pal dstv) to composite video output(ntsc) though, while the audio (L-R cable) is routed directly to the tv. The conversion is quite good for tvs below 46". I wouldn't advise you use it for bigger tvs.
Re: Help Needed To Convert NTSC LCD TV from the USA To PAL by prince3342: 5:44pm On Oct 19, 2012
There are several types of those decoders... but the best is the one that uses HDMI cable. Some enhance picture quality to up HD 1080P while converting... See pix below... I have sent a RCA 50inches home from USA for me to know that it was a single system TV, so I bought the one with HDMI cable... I hope it does a great job back home.... If anyone needs it I think I can do a little help.

Hi I just found this post and it very appropriate to my problem.
I actually purchased a converter for my US made NTSC Sony Bravia to PAL system from a guy in UK and it has worked fine for 4 years. Suddenly 2 days ago it stopped working. My problem is I am in Bali Indonesia....shipping another in is a problem however it can be mailed to Sydney Australia and I can pick up from there. Nobody here knows what I am talking about so cannot do here. PLease advise and need your help. THANKS!

please can I get Vga to Component converter. I want to use my LG Tv which has Component 480i as monitor for my PC. I already have the cable but it displays coloured lines which are fuzzy. Have done some googling and it seems I would be needing a converter. The Pc output cable is VGA while My TV input is Component.
I will appreciate any help and suggestions available.
