Question about Koss KS4192 System

8 Answers

Accidentally switched to PAL output.

It is an NTSC tv. Koss Manual says if this happens, you lose ability to switch back because the on-screen menu is no longer readable but gives no remedy.

    Koss Electronics no longer is providing customer support for this product. So I'm on my own. There must be a way to switch this DVD Player back from PAL. I get sound but no video, no menu and no way to even switch Surroundsound settings let alone watch a DVD.

    I unplugged it for 24 hours. Made No Difference. Thanks anyway.

  • hughcameron Jan 20, 2009

    Not exactly what worked but close. Got me on the right track. I followed the menu printed in the manual and even tho I had no video was able to "down" "over" "OK" the right number of steps and was able to switch back from PAL. Many thanks. Working great.

Heft it and turn it over in your hands and you will see that the DVD-L50 is a solid, well-made piece of equipment. Connect it to a television via the built-in S-Video port, and you will be surprised by the image quality, as good or better than most full-sized players.

    You'll want to pick up a spare
    battery at a cost of about $150, otherwise, you'll be out of charge at
    somewhere around three hours.

I went through same mayhem: I had to find a PAL enabled screen.
Plugged in and changed setting.
I got a video capture device (Video HO) configured as PAL input and I used PC capture screen.
Try to borrow a Pal screen (many flat/digital/PC screen allow Pal/NTSC/Auto selection.) or bring your device to a shop for few minutes test with their screen (simulating you have to buy one) change your settings to test your interface and voila'

Have you tried disconnecting the cable/satelite etc from tv then go into the menu after you unplug for a few minutes. The user guide should be readable after this with no signal coming in.

You can also try to set a dvd player to PAL so the tv gets a pal signal then set both back to NTSC.

Hi there
With your remote, press down, down, down, ok, down, ok. This should set all settings back to factory settings.

Good luck

Welcome to Fixya! The Remedy is to locate an Authorized Repair Center for repairs. This is a Common Problem on Koss Products. Stay on here though, Maybe someone Else has located a Way around it. But, Repair is the Only remedy that I have Expierienced.

    I have researched a Bit since your First Post on this Subject Here and on Other Tech sites. Not one person has been able to reverse this Problem. Mostly they all just Purchase a New Reciever. I wish there was a Better Solution to this Problem. Probably the Reason that Koss will not provide Customer Service any longer Also!

I have a Koss KS4190 DVD player with unreadable menu screen.


follow this steps and fix it. Merry Christmas.
Turn on your DVD player.
    • 2
Open the DVD player's main drive, also commonly called the DVD "tray." The region cannot be changed while a DVD is in the machine, so many DVD players require the tray to be open as an extra precaution.

    • 3
Push "Info" or "Setup" on your remote.
    • 4
Use the remote to select the "Region" option as indicated on your TV screen.
    • 5
Select "Region 9" to change the system to multiregion formatting. Regions 1 through 8 represent specific geographic locations and will not allow multiregion playback.

You have to blindly instruct the NTSC/PAL menu item, which toggles between NTSC and PAL;
This is how it is done:

1) turn your dvd player off.
2) Turn it back on and make sure there is no DVD in the player tray.
This will ensure the menus are active
3) Using the remote, press the dowm menu selector key exactly three times
4) press the center menu select key once.
This will activate the display adjustement menu
5) press the down menu key exactly once.
This will activate the NTSC/PAL menu
6) press the center menu key
DONE.
The player should now have switched back to NTCS if it was in PAL.

IF it was in NTSC it should have switched back to PAL.

Note: If you still have the manual you can follow the menu tree blindly using the instructions in the manual. The above sequence is for activating the NTSC/PAL menu.
This player can also switch to progressive scan, which creates a similar problem. At least the progressive scan menu has enough warnings before it will actvate.

PAL mode ?


PAL/NTSC is automatic. if you insert a PAL DVD output is PAL ( most probably PAL-B. Some other brands allow manual PAL/NTSC switching, but at this machine this is automaticaly done. Please verify your TV set allows PAL programs

Koss KS5190 Display mode stuck


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
