Are you in the US? Your TV system is NTSC. The player possibly plays NTSC and PAL(European system) discs on PAL TVs only. Try to find out from the user manual of the DVD player if you can change the output signal to NTSC. Now it is PAL even though you are playing NTSC discs.

I have a ps3 40GB.How do i make it play dvd's i bought from Holland or PAL format disc Jenny Canada


Canada & U.S. use NTSC protocols for dvd playback, different frame rates, etc. Europe is mostly PAL. not compatible. get online with PS3, and see if they have a patch that supports PAL frame rates. if not, go to e-bay and find the dvds in region 1 format U.S./Canada.
good luck!

Region code blocks DVD


Hi, you have to delete de region coding on your DVD, by using a computer (either a mac or PC, or linux) then you can play it. However, if the format is not the same (PAL&NTSC) it's gonna be impossible : for instance, if your PS3 is NTSC, you wont be able to playback PAL content, however, I think it might be possible to the opposite for PAL PS3 owners, since every PAL DVD player can read NTSC (but practically, none of NTSC player read PAL ...) Sad indeed mate.

Its a pain in the *** willing to try converting PAL to NTSC. You better forget it .... However, if its just a region code issue, as I said first, you can just backup it up deleting the CSS (it's illegal... whatever) and burning the region-unlocked movie to a blank DVD and play it ^^

Check to be sure that the setup is correct. The picture you are describing is what happens when you play PAL into an NTSC unit. I don't think you are in PAL mode.

"Video in the PAL broadcast standard is not supported"


Hey DLRIII,

One of the most common reasons why you might receive this kind of message is if you are attempting to use a PAL (European) disc in an NTSC-formatted (North American or Japanese) Playstation 3.

To my knowledge though, Sony has not made any kind of statement indicating that North American PS3's may have been accidentally packaged with PAL-formatted or incorrect regional demo discs. Additionally, many demo discs may typically contain both NTSC and PAL-formatted promotional material.

There are a couple of things you might want to try before seeking additional assistance through Sony.

First, I'd suggest testing other DVD/Blu-ray discs from your collection that were purchased within the U.S. or Canada in the PS3. If these discs function properly, you most likely aren't looking at a hardware problem with the PS3 itself.

You may wish to then check out the TV where you currently have the PS3 connected. If that TV is not able to support video in the PAL broadcasting standard, this may also be a reason why you are receiving this error message. Many older or analog TV's that are only NTSC-compliant will not be able to recognize a PAL-formatted signal sent by any external device (DVD player, video game console, etc.), and could possibly result in a similar error message being displayed. The best way to test this is to try connecting your PS3 to a different TV, preferably one that was purchased within the past few years and has an internal digital (ATSC) receiver.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
