Use a NTSC 3DO on a PAL TV ? It's possible!
NTSC Decoder box for 3do and similar systems [Marty etc]
Got a PANASONIC FZ-1 3DO??? Having problems playing it on a PAL tv??
Getting colour problems? Well im here to say its now been fixed with
ease, no internal modifications, no mess!
This does not transform NTSC to PAL, it keeps NTSC
but allows colour to be displayed. So you still
need a TV etc compatible with 60Hz signals.
The NTSC Decoder System:
A box which connects your 3DO to your non true NTSC Television or
Monitor and then gives a quality 100% colour picture.
- S-VHS[VIDEO] -> SCART/EURO-CONNECTOR
- SCART/EURO-CONNECTOR -> SCART/EURO-CONNECTOR
- NTSC DECODER SYSTEM/BOX
- POWER ADAPTOR
The box is pure black to match your PANASONIC FZ-1 3DO system. With
2 LED's on the front, one GREEN and one RED[RED lights up when powered
and when 3DO is powered up, the GREEN light comes on also].
The box contains two female Scart/Euro-connectors on the back, one for
INPUT and one for OUTPUT. So you have the S-VHS->SCART going from the
FZ-1 into the INPUT scart and the SCART->SCART going into the OUTPUT
then into your TV/MONITOR.
The box has a normal power adaptor [switchable, but switch removed for
safety purposes] which is directly wired into the Decoder.
The box is about 2Inchs high, 7Inchs long, 4Inchs wide.
Certain Televisions etc may need the box to be adjusted, as sometimes
you may have a perfect picture on a MITSUBISHI and then on a SONY
it could be too light etc. Inside the box is 4 potentiometers
[Pots to most] these are RED, GREEN, BLUE and BRIGHTNESS/CLARITY.
A small trim on these will cure any weird colouring or brightness
problems [BEWARE this could void your warranty!]
