Question about Philips DVD751AT DVD Player
So here's the setup. I have a Philips 751 dvd player set up into my receiver that goes to everything else. Since I switched back to my old non-HD tv (my roomate moved out and took it) it plays in black and white. I've tried switching between PAL and NTSC but no avail. Plus, the Philips menu, is in color. I've tried plugging it straight into the tv, different ports, but nothing. When I put in a dvd, it pulls up in color for a split second, then goes to black and white. I've played in the menu and can't seem to get this to work. Oh, and old DVD's I have play in color, no problems. Has there been a change in DVD coding in the past few years or does some divine power just hate me? Please help.

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: DVD's not playing in color
sounds like the problem is the TV . your tv have to different inputs , COMPONENT is for the separate color , BLUE , RED , GREEN this is for better video quality , if your DVD doesnt have this OUTPUT feature , then maybe the YELLOW (VIDEO) , RED & WHITE ( AUDIO ) thats coming out from your DVD player is connected to the COMPONENT input of your TV , GETTING the B&W effect. it should be connected to the VIDEO input of your TV ( yellow , red , white ) hope this is helpful AJ

You can try to reset the dvd player to factory specification with the default function in the preference section of the set-up. Use your remote control and push the set-up button. Use the up and down arrows to highlight the preference section and press enter . Youwill now have entered in to the sub-menu, use the up and down arrows to highlight default and press enter.This will set the dvd player back to factory settings. This should restore the dvd player to normal operation. If it does not restore the dvd player to normal operation, you may have a problem with the drive motor circuits. This could be a failure of components in the power supply circuit for the motor or the the motor itself. For these type of problems it is best to consult with Phillips, they will have all the proper service information to service the problem.You can call their customer support at this telephone number. 1-888-744-5477. Give them the model number of the dvd player and the problem with the intermittent drive operation. They will be able to how to get the unit serviced and repaired. I hope this information helps you with your problem.
