Do UK playstations work in Spain
 
My sister has emigrated to Spain and I have recently given her a PSOne. She can get a good picture but cant get sound. Someone told me that UK Pal is different from Spanish PAL and it wont work.

Is this true. Can't I get an adaptor or something to make it work?

More to do with the image, if you can get that, could just mean you have a dodgy sound cable, try another one, or plug the sound in through the vcr rather than the tele

If you're connecting via direct video and audio outputs, there should be no problem, so it's most likely a bad cable or connection.

If the unit in question has an RF output which you're trying to tune on a Spanish TV, then it won't work. The British system has the audio carrier set at 6MHz above vision, the Spanish is at 5.5MHz.

a ps1 will have either a scart lead or an ariel lead. one or the other. if you plug the scart into the tv, it should work perfectly on channel av1, which most tv´s will turn to automatically when you turn on the pSone...

if it has a tv ariel input, exactly the same.

is it being connected directly to the tv ?



woah..


hold up..

is it a spanish tv? that may make a difference, but i doubt it very much, as you are using a scart and not a ariel...hmm..confusing. probably a bad connection on the scart, or the tv´s turned down :D
