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...
A black and white picture is most often due to a faulty or incorrect RGB (red/green/blue) connection or cable.
If you are using a composite connection (red/white/yellow RCA jacks), you have probably connected the yellow plug to a socket labelled Pr/Pb, Cr/Cb, or Y - on either the DVD player or the TV - most probably the TV. The yellow needs to be connected to a socket labelled "VIDEO". If you connect this to any socket labelled Pr/Pb, Cr/Cb, or Y, you will get a black and white picture.
If you are using a component connection (red/green/blue RCA jacks), one of the plugs is either not fully inserted into the socket or is in the wrong socket. If you remove any one of the R/G/B plugs, you will get a black and white picture.
If you are using a SCART cable (UK / AUS), you may have a bent, damaged or disconnected pin.
I suggest you check and correct the connections between your DVD player and TV. If you are unable to locate the problem, please try another cable as the one you are using may be damaged. If you are still unable to locate the fault, please let me know the brand and model number of the DVD player and how it is connected to the TV. If required, I can also draw a diagram showing the correct connections. It would also be useful to know whether this "fault" suddenly occured, or whether you have just connected the player to the TV.
Hope this helps - please let me know if you need further assistance.
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
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.
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
