During 'Setup' accidentally switched to PAL, while connected to a NTSC TV set. That resulted in a complete loss of sync and made the change back to a NTSC output impossible. How does one get out of this situation, i.e. hoe does one get back to factory defaults without relying on the TV display ?
Apparently you accidentally reset some of the video specs. I was able to resurrect mine by doing this:
- Press and hold the front panel STOP button for 10+ seconds. May take a few tries.
If that doesn't work, try the same press and hold with other front panel buttons.
- If you need clarification, ask it in the comment box above.
- Better answers use proper spelling and grammar.

You are either running NTSC into a Pal system or the other way around. Check the setup menu on the Virginmedia box to make sure what it's running, then make sure the TV card is running in the same format.
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.
for the black and white screen output of your DVD and VCR.
1) for DVD player: using remote control locate "setup" button and click.a dialogue box should appear indicating " audio setup" video setup" etc..... 2) select and scroll to "video setup". in video setup there should be an option to choose "AUTO" "PAL" or "NTSC" 3) choose "auto" then check if any change in screen color.
for VCR, locate a switch or button indicating "PAL" "Auto""PAL SECAM" "NTSC". same with the dvd choose and select "auto"
note: if you still have the manual for both VCR and DVD check the instruction with regards to video color setting.
To my understanding, both are inter-compatible to either NTSC or PAL.; the player will auto detect what format the disc is and auto-switch over. As the manual says, "DVE-5207 automatically changes the video output signal (NTSC or PAL), according to the disc." On the other hand, the TMX-R705 needs manual settings (2 ways): 1. NTSC and PAL can be directly switched when the DISP on the TMX-R705 remote button is pressed for at least 2 seconds; or 2. On the TMX-R705 remote, press the SETUP button, press the DOWN or UP button within 10 seconds and select AUX 1 SIG. or AUX 2 SIG., press the LEFT or RIGHT button within 10 seconds to set the selection.
Just an after thought, pls verify that your DVD Region number is either 2 or ALL. Additionally, you can verify the color format the unit is using (as well as the disc) by pressing DISPLAY during playback on the player.
Should this not be corrective, perhaps you need to check the grounding/wiring and the interconnections cables.
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
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!
is your tv is the same tv that u playing before? coz according to you if u play ntsc there is no problem. if ur tv is multisystem, u can change the tv system menu to auto, but if not u cannot watch coz ntsc tv only accepts ntsc signal.
