DVD Player NTSC / PAL inter-compatibility

Hello, can you please tell me if Emerson's Portable DVD Player Model PDE2725N with 7" TFT LCD Monitor (LCD-0700E) are inter-compatible to either NTSC or PAL? If so, will the player auto-detect the format and play the DVD, or do I have to switch the format setting manual? I purchased the DVD player in the USA which I believe is Region number 1. Thank you.

Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Emerson brand is not readily available in my country and therefore we have limited exposure to their various products. Although from what I was made to understand, more often than not, Emerson units are specifically manufactured for the US market and therefore would have limited or no multi region capability. Sorry. Although normally, the NTSC/PAL feature (if ever available) would be clearly marked in the box or in the manual or as a sticker on the unit itself.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a tcl lcd monitor (l1905az) and I just connected a dvd player to it. I can see the picture and the volume is on but the colour is only black and white. How do I get colour


hi; check your lcd setting if its on ntsc or auto in picture option
if its on pal setting the picture will be balck and white ,
check also your dvd player output if ntsc.
those two has to be the same video system , if you use pal player set your tv to pal,
but most common dvd player is ntsc.

I am able to play CDs but not DVDs


Hi,
Please check the compatible DVD on your player. A DVD player will not play the DVDs if they have different format.
To uncover the dvd player, you can visit this site : www.instructables.com/.../Wikipedia-on-Portable-DVD-Player/
Thank you,
Jay

DVD portable player - protron DVD player model PDV-288


The 4:3 is an aspect ratio the ratio of horizontal to vertical size and the non-HDTV standard; the latter is 16:9.
The PAL and NTSC abbreviations refer to the picture and synchronization standards whereby NTSC is the American standard and the PALs are European. The setting "sp-raw" refers to an unprocessed video format that requires further processing before it can be viewed.
If the disk you have was made for the American market, you should be set to NTSC and the aspect ratio to whatever the disk is specified, most recent disks will be made to conform to HD specifications, but may also  be viewed in "letterbox" form which is a shrunken 16:9 box with pronounced edges around it.
