Can't display Pal on My Sony 57" KP-57WS520

I have a Sony 57" KP-57WS520 TV. I am trying to play a Pal disc on my NTSC TV. I have a PAL-NTSC Converter and have run my system through that.

How ever when I insert the Pal disc, the sound works fine, but the screen "rolls".

Is there any way with this TV that I can get it to display a Pal [50hz??] signal? Is there a way of stopping the screen from "rolling".

Appreciate your help, it's really annoying I thought the converter would work.

Thanks.

    Hey Dan,



    I am trying to play the PAL disc in my NTSC PS2. When I put the disc in it loads fine, but the screen rolls and appears to be in black and white.



    I can get the screen to not roll and be in color. But I am from Ireland and I am trying to get the Singstar Karaoke Games from there to play. [My Dad sent them over].



    When that happens the audio and video are out of sync....Which is a problem when trying to play Karaoke games!



    I bought a cheap PAL----->NTSC Converter off ebay :



    http://www.mayflash.com/others/pc034/pc0...



    And having run what I think is the PAL signal from the PS2 through the converter it still displays the rolling screen. Almost like it has no effect.



    It does say a lot about your NTSC TV running at 50hz, that may have something to do with it, I don't see a "V-Hold" Button or a menu to change such settings.



    Hope that gives you more to go on, appreciate your response.

There are probably a few problems here. What are you using to play the disc? Some NTSC players will "play" a PAL disc but interpret it as NTSC with the symptom you are describing. You need a DVD player that will play PAL. Many of those will output NTSC directly when set up to do so. The other alternative is to have a PAL compatible player that will output PAL into the converter. To narrow this down specifically, please post the model numbers and the connection scheme for your equipment. Once I understand your current setup, I should be able to describe a method to get this to work for you.

    The problem is that the PS2 has circuitry designed to process NTSC signals not PAL. The output from the PS2 is NTSC. The disc will play fine because it is nothing but a stream of digital information that is converted to an analog NTSC signal. The converter would work IF you had a PAL PS2. The sync info is not being created properly during the digital to analog (DA) conversion. Other than using a PAL system and then the converter, I think you are out of luck.

There are currently 3 main television standards used throughout the world:

NTSC - National Television Standards Committee. The oldest existing standard, developed in the USA. First used in 1954. Consists of 525 horizontal lines of display and 60 vertical lines. Sometimes irreverently referred to as "Never Twice the Same Color." Only one type exists, known as NTSC M.
Here is a list of TV STANDAREDS I had for a while and can finally share it with someone. GOOD LUCK!!!! TECHMAN

SECAM - Système électronique pour Couleur avec Mémoire. Developed in France. First used in 1967. A 625-line vertical, 50-line horizontal display. Sometimes referred to by wags as "Something Essentially Contrary to the American Method" or SEcond Colour Always Magenta!" Different types use different video bandwidth and audio carrier specs. Types B and D usually used for VHF; types G, H, and K for UHF; types I, N, M, K1 and L for both VHF/UHF. Different types are generally not compatible.

PAL - Phase Alternating Line. Developed by German engineer Walter Bruch and the German electronic corporation Telefunken. Walter Bruch
patented his invention 1963 and the first commercial application of the PAL system was in August 1967. Also a 625/50-line display and variant of NTSC. Proponents call it "Perfection At Last." Due to the cost of the enormous circuit complexity, critics often refer to it as "Pay A Lot". Different types use different video bandwidth and audio carrier specs. Common types are B, G and H; less common types include D, I, K, N and M. The different types are generally not compatible.

Your Sony KP-57WS520 television has an analog tuner, so you may need a digital tuner or a converter box to continue to receive over-the-air programming.
If you subscribe to a cable or satellite service, your television viewing should not be affected by the June 12, 2009, cut-off date for full-power analog broadcasting. Please contact your service provider for complete information.

Extremely sorry about the chat session... We're having some connection problems.. ANyways your device is not Compatible with PAL input. Its NTSC only(US). However there is a work around. You can get the PAL to NTSC converter(costs around 30$) that will enable you to play PAL on your Device.
