Question about Bose 3·2·1 II System

1 Answer

Need to perform factory reset

By accident, my series II system is in PAL mode (instead of NTSC). Because of this, I cannot access the onscreen setup menu to change back because the TV reports an unrecognized format. Is there any way to reset the Bose system without utilizing the onscreen menu, i.e. pressing a series of buttons on the remote/device to force it to factory spec?

When I worked for Philips, I solved one of these. First, try unplugging the unit from the wall outlet for one full minute and see if that alone will reset the unit/restore it to defaults. If not, make sure you have a yellow video connector running from the Bose to your TV rather than another type of video cable - change the tv to the appropriate source channel - now see if the menu will appear. If not, you will have to fly blind (don't mess up): Press the System button, then the right arrow by the Enter key twice, then the down arrow by the Enter key five times, then press Enter. Defaults (including NTSC) will now be restored.

    Easy Solution:
    Swithc off Boss System, Press and Hold Enter key in the System and press and release store. A selection will appear each time you press store button. When it comes to video use volume button to point to NTSC and click Store.
    Hope this will slove the issue.

When you insert a dvd it says PAL DISK


PAL is the format of the dvd and there are two main formats for a dvd and they are PAL or NTSC. The NTSC format is mostly used for the United States, and the PAL format is used more in Europe and Asia. An older dvd player will have the format options in the setup menu for the dvd player, and from the setup menu on the tv screen the dvd player can be set to play the PAL dvd's. However if that is not the problem and the dvd player no longer can tell a PAL from a NTSC format then the dvd player either needs a serious lens cleaning or it has a malfunction. Also, the back of the cover for the dvd should say if it is PAL or NTSC.

How do you change the DVD player mode from PAL to NTSC ?


I just found the way to change the setting from PAL to NTSC.

While the unit is turned off , press the EZ View button on the remote control. Press alternatively the select between the PAL or NTSC setting on the unit display. That's it.

Pal/ntsc


Those are the two common standards; PAL is used in Europe, NTSC in the US and they use different synchronization and resolutions which is causing your problem although it would seem that the menu should still appear since that is an internal function.
I suggest you email or call Koss for a suggestion; I don't believe you are the only one who has done this.

You might try pulling the plug overnight to see if the set will default to NTSC but as most sets today, it probably will remember the last settings and to access the area where this is stored is not a job for users.

A TV shop (if you can find one) will likely have a TV signal generator that can produce both standards and this will enable them to reset to NTSC.

Koss KS5190 Display mode stuck


I'm not ranked and I'm not a Guru, but I can solve this picture rolling when the problem is "the video was accidently changed from NTSC to PAL and you can't see what your doing to get it back". You will need the remote control unit. First, remove the disc from the tray. Now, turn the unit off with the power button. The tray will close by itself. After the display on the front of the unit goes out, turn the unit back on using the remote control. This will let you know the remote control unit is working. When the power comes back on and the display on the front of the DVD player says, "NO DISC", with the remote control and (very important) while pointing the remote at the player, (Remember to point the remote before pressing any buttons) press the "Down Arrow" button 3 times. This will take you to the "Display" box. Now, press the "Right Arrow" button 1 time. This will take you to the "TV Image"box. Now, press the "Down Arrow" 1 time, this will take you to the "PAL/NTSC" box. If you have done everything as I have tried to clearly lead you blindly to your destination. Press the "OK" button 1 time and the picture on the screen will stop rolling and change from black & white to color. You will have now changed your video output from PAL to NTSC. If you press "OK" again, it will start to roll again. If this did not take care of your problem, turn the player off and try it again.
The previous problem solvers were on the right track, but the track was rough and they just about derailed the train. Thanks to them, I had a track to follow. I had no other information, except what I found on "Fixya.com". MR. CD
