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.

How to convert my Philips DVP5990 to play PAL?


Press SETUP
Use the arrows to highlight Video Setup Page
Select TV Type - change it to PAL

There isn't a way to view PAL and NTSC at the same time with this player, but you can always go to the video setup page and switch between the two. Restoring the player back to its factory defaults will automatically switch it back to NTSC.

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.

Pal to NTSC


Hi, Based on your post/description, you need to get a multi-system TV to go with your multi system VCR if you are going to playback VHS tapes from different regions. You are quite correct "Plays NTSC tapes to NTSC, Will not Play Pal to NTSC" to play PAL (even Secam) you would need a PAL/Secam TV. They have a different system for color and audio. In some cases, you can still play PAL but you get it in black & white and picture squeezed from top & bottom. Hope this be of some help to you. Good luck and kind regards.

Cyberhome 300 DVD Player: pal to ntsc mode?


You might want to reset to factory defaults, but there is an error in the manual. In order to reset to factory defaults, turn on (with no disc inside), DO NOT OPEN THE DISC TRAY, just press the stop button on the player for 5 seconds.

There can one of two problems here. Either your DVD player's output is set to NTSC and you are attempting to play it through a PAL (European) TV, or you are perhaps using the SVHS output incorrectly. The solution is to access the player's setup menu and ensure the video output is set to your standard (PAL or NTSC). Hope this helps!
