Need a DVD Player that can be modded

My old DVD player has just died (power supply packed in). Looking for recommendations for a replacement that can be modded / firmware patched. My old player was macrovision free, allowed me to watch NTSC discs as Pal 60. UOP flag could be ignored so I didn't have to sit and watch ads and the like. Don't need any unpscaling as I still have a good old CRT TV.
Thanks
Mark

SOURCE: how to unlock it to play either NTSC/PAL

Here is the sequence to unlock your DV Player. Clearly this needs to be done exactly to access the secret menu. So, you may want to copy and paste this info into a word program and then print it.

- Begin -
1. Turn off NS55P, leave TV on.
2. Using the original remote supplied with the NS55P, press these buttons in order: DISPLAY, TOP MENU, CLEAR, POWER.
3. NS55P will turn on, displaying the secret menu on the tv screen.
4. Select 2: Drive Manual Operation, then 4: Tray Aging Mode.
5. The screen then shows two input lines: Input Count and Current Count. Use the code 00030 on the first line. Pressing zero first will take you back to the original menu, so instead of trying to type 0-0-0-3-0, try something like 1-0-0-0-3-0 so the 1 in the front disappears after the last zero is entered.
6. Press ENTER on the remote. Disk tray will then open and close automatically 30 times. Let it do this until it finishes.
7. Repeat steps 4-6, but instead of using 00030 in the Input Count, use 00000. Press ENTER, and the NS55P is now capable of reading Region 2 dvds.

- End -

SOURCE: PAL to NTSC conversion

This is not a converting unit, it will play the format of the tape inside. To convert the signal you need one of the following:

1) A converting VHS player; they are fairly expensive.
2) A separate video converter (hardware); they run for about $200-$500; just put this between your VCR and the TV.
3) Capture the PAL on your computer using a software like Movie Maker via a Firewire cable. Than convert it to NTSC on your machine using software like Nero... do a search on Google for converting software. Or just watch it on our computer in PAL format, most computers do that... For this step I use a separate camcoder that has a passthrough feature. The VCR connects to it and the camcorder connects to the computer via Firewire.
4) send the PAL tape to a specialized shop for conversion. They normally charge $30-$40 for a regular 2h VHS tape.

SOURCE: PAL to NTSC

I think your remote control can help you with that. You can switch to PAL or NTSC depending on what will work best. What do you think?

Won't turn on manually


Hello,

The reason you DVD player wont show turn on a green or red light is simply because there is no power supply entering the player.

This could be as a result of the player being exposed to a very high current and has burnt a capacitor on the power panel.

The best thing is for you to get the appropriate screwdriver,
  1. open the cover of the phone,
  2. get a meter reader and test all the component of the board,
  3. you will discover a part that is burnt,
  4. you will see a power pack that is connected to the main board by a cable or more,
  5. disconnect the cables,
  6. replace the power pack,
  7. couple it back
  8. try to turn it on.
Take care

No power; no lights will come on. I was watching a recorded DVD and then all of the sudden it turned off and will not come back on.


Hello,

The reason the DVD went off was because it was exposed to a high current and the power pack got burnt during the process.

To fix this, you have to get the appropriate screw driver, open up the cover of the player,

You will see the power pack, if it is covered, open it up and if it is not just go ahead and test the capacitors with a meter reader.

You will discover some burnt capacitors.

Disconnect the power pack, get another power pack and replace the old one, and the player will be okay once again.

Take care

If you can't find a replacement searching the internet, I suggest you take it to a Batteries Plus store. If they don't have an exact replacement, they can make up a battery pack that will work.

Replacement for Onkyo DVD Player


You do not worry about the DVD player, any brand of DVD Player has compatible for that system because the output of all DVD player has already synchronizing the output impedance of the DVD to the input of your system. And you are looking for the best resolution of DVD player so you can try either sony, jvc, pioneer.and many more, but the best thing you can do is to bring the sample CD that you already know the picture and then you can try to play into the DVD that what you have selected.
