Go into main menu on the DVD player, then (probably) the picture menu and find a setting that says either Pal or NTSC. Then change it to the opposite one. These are to do with the signal coming into the TV from the aerial. Just go through all the menus until you find it, or post on a forum specific to your player (and say what sort), so someone with the same one can help you navigate the menus.

It all depends where you are writing from and where you got the DVD player from. I know Pal is used in NZ and the UK, and NTSC is used in the USA. I don't know about other countries, these are the only ones I have experienced, through buying foreign DVDs. Your signal is obviously coming through in one format and your DVD player is set to the other (incompatible) one. Change the DVD player to match your TV and you'll be fine.

Magnovox dv220 mw9 plays in black and white only


Hello
The output signal's colour system to this player is NTSC. Just look whether your TV is NTSC system compactable. Check whether the disc is recorded in any other colour system, like PAL or SECAM. These are the reasons for absence of colour to the picture. Check whether the colour control of the TV is at minimum.

Unlock my DVD player to watch VCD's.


VCD's do not have "regions" specification. The DVD player either can play VCD's, or cannot play VCD's. It's a format that is not very popular among manufacturers. I have two players that both play my VCD's, but I had to make sure they accepted that format before I bought them. This player accepts DVD and CD's but it did not say VCD's. It's kind of a proprietary format that was only really popular overseas. The PHILIPS DVP5140 is one that I just found that does play pretty much everything.

VHS plays in colour and DVD plays in black and white.


there is a circuit in the color section to put the tv to black and white if the color subcarrier is missing from the broadcast signal.
it is called a color killer and needs to be adjusted.
it is for a technician to do.
it operates off the 3.58mhz color subcarrier.

Cannot play dvd's from overseas


Your BluRay player is probably set/fixed to Region 2 (if you are in UK/EU). Most devices let you change the region bashing some strange combination of buttons on the remote control (engineer code/command), that allows it to be set to different regions or preferably REGION 0 (region free).

You can most likely find this by google'ing your BluRay player with the words region engineer code, but if you supply the make and model, don't mind having a look for you.

Picture only shows in black & white when playing DVD


Same problem with an older JVC player. One end of the S-video cable was loose. Pushed in in tight and everything ok again. Cheap fix if it works for you.
