Question about Sony DVP-NS51P DVD Player

Open Question

Why is there no sound out of my Pal or NTSC movies on my dvd?

I have a sony DVPNSS1P dvd player and I havea samsung slim line new TV. Initially when I plugged the two I could hear and see NTSC dvds but got nothing out of my Pal DVDs. Now I moved the cables around the TV and managed to get both Pal and NTSC movies to show clearly (on component and not AV1 or AV2) but now no sound comes from either of them. Can you help?

    Dear welcomejee, thank your for reaching out. I have one three line cable and at each end there are three plugs, one red, one yellow and one blue, I hooked one end of the three to the dvd player and one end to the tv player. There are lots of spots to plug in the samsung tv, three horizontal lines (for the three plugs) and one vertical line (for th three plugs). and one on the side (for the three plugs). When I had the three ends of the cable on one of the horizontal ones (AV1) it worked for NTSC with sound and picture, when I changed it to the vertical line, I got picture in both NTSC and Pal movies but no sound. Now there is no sound for DVD only my TV has sound. When I turn all back to what it was, i now lost both the image and the sound of the NTSC. What is there to do?

    Ok, will go out and try to get the red white cable. I dont have that. All I know is that I was able to see and hear NTSC dvds before with just the three cables and was unable to hear or see the PAL. Now I can see both but hear none. I will try what you say. Thanks

    Below is an image of rear of dvd player connections.
    If you hook component video (3 wires) also need to hook audio (2 wires) with TV, so total 5 wires.

    If you hook Yellow video cable then hook 2 audio cable with TV so total 3 wires.

    TV model is incorrect so can't see/ guide its rear panel.

    Let me know Samsung TV model, I will try to post image of hook up of both units.

    Hook audio cable red-white for audio.
    3 Component cable is just for video signal and audio requires 2 more cable (red-white) in same input.

SOURCE: how to unlock it to play either NTSC/PAL

Here is the sequence to unlock your DV Player. Clearly this needs to be done exactly to access the secret menu. So, you may want to copy and paste this info into a word program and then print it.

- Begin -
1. Turn off NS55P, leave TV on.
2. Using the original remote supplied with the NS55P, press these buttons in order: DISPLAY, TOP MENU, CLEAR, POWER.
3. NS55P will turn on, displaying the secret menu on the tv screen.
4. Select 2: Drive Manual Operation, then 4: Tray Aging Mode.
5. The screen then shows two input lines: Input Count and Current Count. Use the code 00030 on the first line. Pressing zero first will take you back to the original menu, so instead of trying to type 0-0-0-3-0, try something like 1-0-0-0-3-0 so the 1 in the front disappears after the last zero is entered.
6. Press ENTER on the remote. Disk tray will then open and close automatically 30 times. Let it do this until it finishes.
7. Repeat steps 4-6, but instead of using 00030 in the Input Count, use 00000. Press ENTER, and the NS55P is now capable of reading Region 2 dvds.

- End -

SOURCE: Can't switch from AV2 to AV1 with Samsung DVD-VR375 DVD Recorder / VCR Combo

To be able to select AV1, you have to first go into the setup menu and set the control set top box setting to OFF. I think you go to the menu >> setup >> features >> set top box control >> select OFF. Note that this has the side effect of erasing any previously stored timer settings.

Would this player be able to play region 1 and 2 discs? Some of the Classical DVD's I would like to order also requires an NTSC (American compatable TV.) Would it work on my new flat screen Samsung?

Answer is... NO, not unless your TV is a multisystem and the DVD player is also Multi-system too. Some PAL/SECAM DVD allow NTSC playback, but will not allow recording through the line in connection EVEN to a NTSC compatible TV. Best to keep your system fully multisystem if you intend of doing this routinely.

I am burning a movie to a disc and I do not know which format to put it in so it will work for this player, PAL or NTSC format?

Check out the link below for a rundown on which countries use PAL or NTSC -


Another method is to grab a DVD cover from a movie you have bought and have a look on the back, they usually state whether they are PAL or NTSC somewhere in the small print.

Thx, if this solution helps please rate :)

We live in ireland and we bought a dvd on amazon but it says ntsc, we have dvd player and xbox, help

NTSC, known to us as Never Twice the Same Colour due to the way the picture is made up will not play on a PAL player. The NTSC format uses a 60Hz frame rate at 525 lines resolution and 15KHz line speed and the UK system is PAL usind a 50Hz frame rate and 16.250 KHz line speed. Pity as some DVD players will play NTSC Movies in "Simple PAL" but somewhat degraded picture and sound quality.
Hope this clarifies your situation.

New lcd tv and dvd player is playing movies in black & white

1. Verify connections are color coded.

2. If they are correct, take out movie, press Play/Stop at same time on the front of the unit (not remote) to reset any settings that may have been changed.

Coby dvd player 536 only plays movies in black and white

it has something to do with your TV's video system and your player's video system...they should match...that is,PAL-PAL,NTSC-NTSC and etc..or if your tv has a multisystem then just set it to AUTO..

Convert ntsc to pal for sony bravia tv

While a modern PAL TV can display NTSC sources (namely DVD players and PAL VHS players that support pseudo-NTSC), an NTSC TV can not display a PAL source, unless it's an expensive multi-standard TV. Sorry pal, bad choice.
