Cannot see menu

I tried holding the enter button when first turning it on. I see nothing but a split white and black screen that seems to roll up quickly. Thanks for your help.

could be a pal/ntsc region code problem, either the menu setting is pal and your playing a ntsc region coded dvd or the menu is correctly set at ntsc and the dvd is pal that you are trying to play

The display screen is rolling and is in black and white.


Hi

You switched to PAL mode from NTSC or vice versa. Most DVDs will only output PAL or NTSC, not both. So even if the disc is region ffree, the fact that it's encoded in PAL (50hz) makes it appear like you describe - no vertical hold / black and white.

Some set top players [Apex, Phillips] will convert PAL to NTSC on the fly or vice versa.

Remember, PAL/NTSC is not the same as Region.

Here's some detailed info:

You can convert the DVD to NTSC, and strip the region code by following http://www.videohelp.com/guides/how-to-convert-interlaced-pal-dvd-to-ntsc-dvd-id1107#1107

What DVD



Most players are either NTSC or PAL, however increasingly DVD players from the Far East (Apex, Phillips etc)


, which is 50hz instead of 60hz, hence the lack of vertical hold

Try holding the stop button and the DVD dubbing button at the same time and waiting about 3 seconds. I had to do this twice, but it solved my problem.

TV screen is rolling and video appears only in black and white


Somehow we were able to get it fixed ourselves. We pressed the SETUP button on remote, then pressed the DOWN button 4 times then press the RIGHT button, then ENTER button for factory default setting.

No picture on tv when i turn on dvd. get split screen black & whi


Give this a try. Using your user's manual, locate the "Configuring your recorder" section. Under this section there will be "System setup - general" subsection. Being that you are unable to see anything on your tv display you will need to use your manual as your display. Press the "SETUP" key on your remote. Once again using your manual as your display, scroll down to "Restore factory settings" and press "ENTER" As long as you are located in North or Central America and using interlaced video outputs you should have your normal display back.
Hope this helps.

I get a double black-and-white image when the TV is running through the VCR


I had this same problem once. Go on your dvd menu and go to settings and hit "reset default settings". That worked for me. Hope this helps.
