American disc won`t play on my ps2 console in the uk all i get is please insert disc


if your ps2 is not a modded one sorry to tell you but yours is a pal ps2 (means you live somewhere in asia europe)so there is some difference i the american ps2 disc(ntsc) and pal ps2 disc both are designed to play in specific consoles so if you bought they console from ntsc territory(japan ,north america) it should work for sure but sometimes in japan and all they sell pals also but there is still chance try returning the cd to the shop and buy a pal disc or you can mod your ps2 from ps2 technicians (they are all around the world,every console shop has one) and then you can play american disc this is the only chance it will only take a small 25 bucks from you just mod it and u can play games u burned from your computer and also any pal ,ntsc territory original discs also

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 ^^

Can a PAL Game be Played on Japanese (NTSC) PS3 console?


No. All PS3s are region locked. The PS3 will play games that matches its programmed region.

Since you have a Japanese (NTSC) PS3, it only plays Japanese (NTSC) games

That PAL game you have will only work on a PAL PS3.

"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
