...also, I tried changing the video setting since the DVD output was now B&W!
I chose something I didn't understand under the PAL dropdown and now, there's no picture at all and spotty sound!
So, now I can't even see the setup screen to change it back.
Is there a way to reset the thing?
I have the same issue i don't know the solution to ur original problem of B&W..
I think you might have unknowingly changed the "Video Output".. don't worry...to change it back.. do the following steps
1) Switch on dvd player with no disc
2) wait for few secs and press setup on remote
3)press -> (rt arrow) once
4) press enter
5) press down arrow twice
6) press enter
7) press up arrow once(or twice)
8) press enter
hopefully this shud work..

I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing as the Video output settings on the DVD Recorder is set incorrectly. Please perform a power resetting by following the below steps and check the operation. To perform power resetting, unplug the DVD Recorder from wall outlet for more than 5 minutes and press and hold the Power button for more than 15 seconds. It will discharge power from all circuit and move the Recorder to factory default.
Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if the issue persists.
Check that the TV doesn't have the option to display PAL transmissions. It might be able to do it via any of the connectors. Otherwise your best option is to find a TV that can indeed convert both signals, or get a converter box.
Pal output will only work when it is plugged into a pal tv. The only way you can restore is to use the remote to put the settings back to ntsc without using the display. That should work. If you don't have a pal tv you should never change devices to run on it, because it can damage your tv set. The scanning lines are very different between the two systems.
you might want to try changing the settings settings just go to sound settings>audio output settings and choose the type of cable you're using sfter that select automatic and press X. if that doesnt solve the problem may be you accidentally chage the BD/DVD audio output format. is locate in BD/DVD Settings change both BD/DVD audio output format (HDMI) and BD Audio Output Format (optical Digital) to linear PCM or viseversa try both to see wich one works.
p.s. it can also be a problem with your sound/ hometheater system.
To my understanding, both are inter-compatible to either NTSC or PAL.; the player will auto detect what format the disc is and auto-switch over. As the manual says, "DVE-5207 automatically changes the video output signal (NTSC or PAL), according to the disc." On the other hand, the TMX-R705 needs manual settings (2 ways): 1. NTSC and PAL can be directly switched when the DISP on the TMX-R705 remote button is pressed for at least 2 seconds; or 2. On the TMX-R705 remote, press the SETUP button, press the DOWN or UP button within 10 seconds and select AUX 1 SIG. or AUX 2 SIG., press the LEFT or RIGHT button within 10 seconds to set the selection.
Just an after thought, pls verify that your DVD Region number is either 2 or ALL. Additionally, you can verify the color format the unit is using (as well as the disc) by pressing DISPLAY during playback on the player.
Should this not be corrective, perhaps you need to check the grounding/wiring and the interconnections cables.
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
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!
