    I have a Panasonic AG-7350 and this website: http://www.seatronics-group.com/vid/7350.htm
    say's PAL or NTSC but I am not sure what that means. Do I perhaps need to throw 50Hz at the unit to get it to playback PAL tapes?

    PAL 50 field has nothing to do with 50Hz electricity.

    You can use NA electricity or Euro electricity with no problem whatsoever. WARNING!!!! look at the back, certain units have automatic voltage switching, certain units require manual switching.

    You can put in any PAL and NTSC tapes in the unit and the unit will output the corresponding signal.

    Certain unit (I'm not sure about this one), have selectable output. That means anything you put in (PAL and NTSC) will be outputted as NTSC or PAL (your choice via a switch, usually at the back, or a series of button push)

    ALL of the above ARE explained in the manual. If you have the manual and haven't read it, then RTFM. If you don't have a manual, get one. I usually read the manuals when it comes to pro-sumer and pro equipments.

    If I had a manual then the first thing I would have done was RTFM before I posted a message here.

    I did a search online for a manual but no luck.

    I could not find any switches on the back.

    Anyone know were I can get a manual for this model?

    Have you tried contacting Panasonic?

    If Panasonic USA can't help you, try e-mailing Panasonic Japan, they will have the library of manuals. That's how I got the manual for my Panasonic broadcast video mixer.

    Thanks David, I managed to find the manual online.

    It states that there should be a switch on the front under a removable panel called "TV SYSTEM" but my unit is blank right were that should be so there must either be a few models out there or the one I have is older to the point it did not have that option.

    A friend sent me a PAL VHS tape that he wanted me to digitize but it does not look like I will be able to do this with the AG-7350 or the AG-7150 decks that I have.
