DVD will not play in color, what am I doing wrong

Hi, are you using a UK pal tv? Chances are you are watching a US region 1 dvd which is encoded in NTSC. This will play in 525 lines and black and white on a UK PAL tv. Does your DVD player have an NTSC playback to PAL tv swich? It would simply be labeled "PAL" and "NTSC" If not on the back then possibly in the menu. If you have the switch select NTSC and try again.

Hope this helps

I just bought this unit and I really like it but it will not play my burned dvd's in color. Why not?

Not seing color is only a matter of PAL & NTSC support by your DVD.

Does it play both original (bought) USA & EU DVDs? Does it play them OK? If yes, there is a color system issue with your DVD - ripping software.
If not (even the bought ones) thens check:

1. Is your TV both PAL & NTSC compatible?
2. Is your DVD player as above?
3. If you are connecting your DVD via another device (a receiver, switcher...) is it supporting both as above?

That's all.

Convert ntsc to pal for sony bravia tv

While a modern PAL TV can display NTSC sources (namely DVD players and PAL VHS players that support pseudo-NTSC), an NTSC TV can not display a PAL source, unless it's an expensive multi-standard TV. Sorry pal, bad choice.
