TV screen is rolling and video appears only in black and white
The jWin website says: Locate a button labeled NTSC/PAL or N/P on the DVD remote control. Press the button mentioned above until the TV displays NTSC, AUTO or MULTI. The problem is the remote has no such button. I'm sure there is probably a way to make the switch under the setting menu, but I can't see the screen good enough to do it. Anyone know how to make it happen?

Maybe the dvd is st to pal/secam, and your tv is set to ntsc...look for the pal/seca/ntsc button in your remote control of dvd player and set the player to ntsc...tv recievers are set to ntsc by default if you are in asia...
Hi, are you using a UK pal tv? Chances are you are watching a US region 1 dvd which is encoded in NTSC. This will play in 525 lines and black and white on a UK PAL tv. Does your DVD player have an NTSC playback to PAL tv swich? It would simply be labeled "PAL" and "NTSC" If not on the back then possibly in the menu. If you have the switch select NTSC and try again.
Hope this helps

PLEASE CHECK PAL AND NTSC SELECTION....IF YOUR REGION IS PAL SELECT PAL IN DVD SETTINGS....OR IF YOUR REGION IS NTSC THAN SELECT NTSC IN DVD SETTINGS....ITS NOT A PROBLEM...JUST TRY TO SWITCH PAL AND NTSC IN YOUR DVD SETTINGS....U WILL DEFINATELY GET THE RESULT
Yes there is video format for our TV and dvd players. NTSC & PAL...
NTSC SYSTEM SELECTED IN TV & DVD PLAYER PLAY PERFECT NTSC CDS & DVDS, BUT IF PAL CD OR DVD IS INSERTED SUCH PROBLEM COMES. EVEN IF, THE DVD PLAYER SETTING IS KEPT AS PAL, AND WE INSERTING THE CORRECT CD OR DVD AND ALSO IT SHOW BLACK & WHITE PICTURE, ETC.... so please check your video system in TV, DVD PLAYER and check the CD or DVD you are inserting is of same video format you have set in DVD player.
You switched to PAL mode from NTSC or vice versa. Most DVDs will only output PAL or NTSC, not both. So even if the disc is region ffree, the fact that it's encoded in PAL (50hz) makes it appear like you describe - no vertical hold / black and white.
Some set top players [Apex, Phillips] will convert PAL to NTSC on the fly or vice versa.
for the black and white screen output of your DVD and VCR.
1) for DVD player: using remote control locate "setup" button and click.a dialogue box should appear indicating " audio setup" video setup" etc..... 2) select and scroll to "video setup". in video setup there should be an option to choose "AUTO" "PAL" or "NTSC" 3) choose "auto" then check if any change in screen color.
for VCR, locate a switch or button indicating "PAL" "Auto""PAL SECAM" "NTSC". same with the dvd choose and select "auto"
note: if you still have the manual for both VCR and DVD check the instruction with regards to video color setting.
If I understand your post/description, the DVD plays OK except it is in Black & White. If so, change setting from PAL to NTSC or vice versa depending on the region you are in. US operates on NTSC, Most of Europe is PAL.
Hope that this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
