Changing to PAL format...

...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? Thanks!

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 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 incorrectly entered PAL in video format setting now screen is stuck and says change resol utio n but can not change it need help!!! protron pd-dvr100 dvd recorder

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.

Set up video output

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.

I have a philips DVD home theatre system HTS8100. Its fine except that NO dvds play in synch. I have checked them on my normal DVD player & they are fine. The synch button on the remote sometimes fixes...

Synch problems on Philips machines can be caused by the video output setting.

Usually there are 3 options for video output:
  • PAL
  • NTSC
  • AUTO
PAL & NTSC force playback in that setting, regardless of DVD format, and sometimes cause a time delay in the conversion.

Try changing this option to AUTO. IF you have a modern TV, it should allow both PAL & NTSC playback.

Nextech N600 DVD player problem

You may have connected one of the component outputs (usually colored red, green, and blue) of your DVD player to the composite input of your TV. Connect yellow to yellow. See section 3.2 for hookup details. Also, if you've hooked up component video, check the three cables to make sure one of them hasn't become disconnected or developed a short and that they are connected in the correct order. If you use an s-video connection, the chroma wire maybe broken -- try a different cable or try the composite connection.
If you live in a PAL country (most countries outside of the U.S., Canada, and Japan) you may be playing an NTSC disc in a PAL player, but your PAL TV can't handle the signal. If your player has a switch or on-screen setting to select the output format for NTSC discs, choosing PAL (60 Hz) should solve the problem. See section 1.19 for more information.

PAL problem


The DVD player you have is only compatible with NTSC TV. There is no way of changing that to PAL.

It is compatible though with PAL discs. It will convert the video signal of a PAL disc to NTSC format.

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!
