    the remote does not have a pal/ntsc button, the instruction manual says to switch between the two systems by using the onscreen menu and choosing pal or ntsc there. so problem remains, how do i see what i am doing?

    Hmmm Thats not a good idea for the manufacturer to not put pal/ntsc button on the remote control.
    What is the model number?
    Also, is the screen a split screen jumping in black and white?

Will my toshiba tv bought in uk work in usa


There are two things you need to know regarding your TV.

Power requirements and broadcasting standards.

1:POWER
Look on the back of the TV and find the sticker or label that mentions the INPUT VOLTAGE.

If it reads 220-240V 50Hz then it will not work in the USA.

If it reads 110-240V 50-60Hz then it MAY work in the USA. At least you know it will work if you change the plug on the mains cable.

2: BROADCASTING
In the UK, broadcasts use the PAL system to display images on the screen. In the USA, broadcasts use the NTSC system to display images on the screen.

You need to check the manual that came with your TV to see if it is capable of receiving an NTSC signal. This signal is used in everything in the USA from PVRs, to DVD/HDD recorders, satellite systems, public access and cable systems.

If your TV meets the power and broadcast requirements then it should work.

I just bought a series of movies from the UK and found out about this whole regions thing. I have a Sylvania sdvd4101c an do can't figure out how to unlock it. Help!


Your trouble may not end at the region of the DVD player. There's the issue of format. There is NTSC (USA), PAL (UK) and a lesser used SECAM format. These are NOT interchangeable unless the player supports it. See this link for more:

What is the difference between PAL NTSC and SECAM

Many players can have the region changed. Most however, are computer drives. Home audio equipment can be tricky - and you might want to have a look here first:

Playing UK region 2 DVDs on American region 1 DVD players


Some players allow you to make several changes and that's all, or allow you to set to "Region Free" (which is ideal).

DVD will not play in color, what am I doing wrong


Hi, are you using a UK pal tv? Chances are you are watching a US region 1 dvd which is encoded in NTSC. This will play in 525 lines and black and white on a UK PAL tv. Does your DVD player have an NTSC playback to PAL tv swich? It would simply be labeled "PAL" and "NTSC" If not on the back then possibly in the menu. If you have the switch select NTSC and try again.

Hope this helps

When you insert a dvd it says PAL DISK


PAL is the format of the dvd and there are two main formats for a dvd and they are PAL or NTSC. The NTSC format is mostly used for the United States, and the PAL format is used more in Europe and Asia. An older dvd player will have the format options in the setup menu for the dvd player, and from the setup menu on the tv screen the dvd player can be set to play the PAL dvd's. However if that is not the problem and the dvd player no longer can tell a PAL from a NTSC format then the dvd player either needs a serious lens cleaning or it has a malfunction. Also, the back of the cover for the dvd should say if it is PAL or NTSC.

Convert ntsc to pal for sony bravia tv


While a modern PAL TV can display NTSC sources (namely DVD players and PAL VHS players that support pseudo-NTSC), an NTSC TV can not display a PAL source, unless it's an expensive multi-standard TV. Sorry pal, bad choice.

How to convert my Philips DVP5990 to play PAL?


Press SETUP
Use the arrows to highlight Video Setup Page
Select TV Type - change it to PAL

There isn't a way to view PAL and NTSC at the same time with this player, but you can always go to the video setup page and switch between the two. Restoring the player back to its factory defaults will automatically switch it back to NTSC.

There can one of two problems here. Either your DVD player's output is set to NTSC and you are attempting to play it through a PAL (European) TV, or you are perhaps using the SVHS output incorrectly. The solution is to access the player's setup menu and ensure the video output is set to your standard (PAL or NTSC). Hope this helps!

If you are using an American TV, then it's because your DVD player is set to PAL. Set the DVD player to NTSC and all should be good. peace. p.d.
