Koss KS5190 Display mode stuck

I accidentally changed the display from "TV Image" to "PAL/NTSC" in the Display menu and now the picture is rolling/flipping. The user manual is no help. Is there some way to change the setting back to the way it was before? Thanks!

Re: Koss KS5190 Display mode stuck

I'm not ranked and I'm not a Guru, but I can solve this picture rolling when the problem is "the video was accidently changed from NTSC to PAL and you can't see what your doing to get it back". You will need the remote control unit. First, remove the disc from the tray. Now, turn the unit off with the power button. The tray will close by itself. After the display on the front of the unit goes out, turn the unit back on using the remote control. This will let you know the remote control unit is working. When the power comes back on and the display on the front of the DVD player says, "NO DISC", with the remote control and (very important) while pointing the remote at the player, (Remember to point the remote before pressing any buttons) press the "Down Arrow" button 3 times. This will take you to the "Display" box. Now, press the "Right Arrow" button 1 time. This will take you to the "TV Image"box. Now, press the "Down Arrow" 1 time, this will take you to the "PAL/NTSC" box. If you have done everything as I have tried to clearly lead you blindly to your destination. Press the "OK" button 1 time and the picture on the screen will stop rolling and change from black & white to color. You will have now changed your video output from PAL to NTSC. If you press "OK" again, it will start to roll again. If this did not take care of your problem, turn the player off and try it again.
The previous problem solvers were on the right track, but the track was rough and they just about derailed the train. Thanks to them, I had a track to follow. I had no other information, except what I found on "". MR. CD

All you have to do is disconnect the componet cable or s video and connect the regulard video cable and you shoud get a picture to change it. or whlie the dvd try is out, press the down arrow on ur remote 4 time the right push, then down 1 and push to the left and it shoulg change back.

My dvd's play in black & white. cant get any color in pitures.


There are three types of display settings. 1 PAL, 2, NTSC and 3, Auto.

The pal and auto makes a display show color while the NTSC allow a display show in black and white but sometimes NTSC also shows color. It is possible that the display format on the movie is NTSC.

To fix this problem, play the movie that shows black and white. When the movie shows in black and white, press PAL/NTSC or P/N on the remote control and it should display in color.

Or Go to the player menu, check video or display setting, change it to Auto.

Problem should be fixed because that's where it lies....

But if it doesn't solve the problem, please let me know so that I may direct you further on what next to do.

I hope you understand the above.

Good luck.

Change from PAL to NTSC

To begin, the first and second problems are completely unrelated.

If you bought a PAL TV and are playing an NTSC source, the result will be an invalid format. The two sources are not compatible. However, there are converters available, see: (just as an example).

To the second user. My first guess is that you need to select the proper input on your TV. Look for the "input" button on your TV remote and toggle through each input until you see a picture. The problem may be more complicated than that, but, to troubleshoot, I need to know: what TV you have, how many devices and what devices are hooked to the TV.

How do you change the DVD player mode from PAL to NTSC ?

I just found the way to change the setting from PAL to NTSC.

While the unit is turned off , press the EZ View button on the remote control. Press alternatively the select between the PAL or NTSC setting on the unit display. That's it.

Koss ks4102 pal/ntsc output

Those are the two common standards; PAL is used in Europe, NTSC in the US and they use different synchronization and resolutions which is causing your problem although it would seem that the menu should still appear since that is an internal function.
I suggest you email or call Koss for a suggestion; I don't believe you are the only one who has done this.

You might try pulling the plug overnight to see if the set will default to NTSC but as most sets today, it probably will remember the last settings and to access the area where this is stored is not a job for users.

A TV shop (if you can find one) will likely have a TV signal generator that can produce both standards and this will enable them to reset to NTSC.

Incompatible Video Signal

i forget exactly how to do this, and i know how to do it, but your menu should still display on your tv when you press the menu button. but,,,,
worse i did it in a hotel and had to get engineering to fix it for me....

you need to reset the system, the instructions are in the manual,

but to get your picture dislaying on your tv, get an adaptor for the end of your scart cable and plug the yellow video component into the AV socket on your TV. this should work until you wade through the manual. even though the picture wont be good.
