I am moving from Taiwan to Singapore and would like to know if my electronics will work. Specifically, I would like to know if the PAL signal format that is used in Singapore televisions signals works for Taiwanese televisions. Has anyone current on this information?

Taiwan is all 110v apart from aircon which is 220v.
Singapore is 230v and the plugs are 3 pin. and 2 pin round. different shape to Taiwan, I would sell your electronics if made for the local Taiwan market or leave them with your family, and buy new!
If they are made to International standards there will be dual voltage switches.
I know because i have also lived in Taiwan. I blew some amp speakers, because I forgot about the difference, and plugged into an 2 pin extension lead......so don't bring them if they are not changable on voltage. Also TV is American system but most have a chnage over switch, but the voltage would be a problem if no dual voltage, you would have to check all your equipment and change plugs
Yes you can use a converter, but see if the TV can be converted for you at the service centre in Taiwan or Singapore for a nominal amount it's better.swmnchef wrote:Thanks for the information.
The video color system Is PAL/SECAM/NTSC 3.58/NTSC 4.43/PAL 60
If I use a voltage transformer can I still use the television? I just bought it and would hate to loose value on the sale and have to buy another when I reach Singapore.
