    no, it won't.

    None has problems that is the same as yours and we could conclude its a hardware problem. So, begin testing out different cables, different TVs, different discs etc

    have a run of cIOS Downgrader, choose the same firmware, but choose one that is according to where you live in.

    US?? = U
    Europe?? = E
    Japan?? = J

    You need to link that thing up to a TV that supports NTSC and PAL.. or a monitor.

    Basically, you're stuck unless you have a PC that can support both input signals.

    You could be banned for this as it publicizes another website and it does not relate to the thread.
