    It is not a region problem. I had a picture before I went from NTSC to PAL.

  • lddstchad Mar 10, 2009

    My player was fine when it was on NTSC.But I lost sound. In trying to remedy it, I clicked on PAL, and the picture was broken, diagonall, and running. All I need to do is to get back to NTSC, but I cannot get back to set up.The disc is region free.I can hear the sound, but the picture is broken diagonal lines, and running.

    I clicked on suggested links, and they did not address my problem.

  • lddstchad Mar 10, 2009

    I went from NTSC, with a picture, to PAL, and lost the picture. I cannot get back to set up to click on NTSC.

    I am not getting any new comments.

  • lddstchad Mar 11, 2009

    I appreciate the help I have received, but nothing has worked. Let me emphasize that once the distorted picture comes on, I cannot click on anything, and I cannot get back to setup. If I could, I would click on NTSC, and get my picture back. So any suggestion that I click on setup is not relevant. Secondly, I have received at least 9 e-mails over time, and each one still contains the same suggestion. Am I doing something wrong?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Hopefully, there may be a way to display the DVD MENU correctly even if the unit is locked in PAL mode while your TV is only NTSC.

Try to hook up the DVD to your TV using component video; Y, PB, PR. This is of course assuming that it is currently connected by some other way such as S-Video or component.

The idea is to bypass NTSC/PAL and to just display the MENU that it may be moved back to NTSC.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

That the picture doesn't stay stable with component and S-video no color points to that the system output is set to a different standard (NTSC/PAL) then the TV - as RabidDog pointed out. Go into the setup menues of both the DVD/VCR system and the TV and look what TV standards have been set. If the standards are not the same, then you need to change that - you live in the US so it should be NTSC on both. 
Also what DVD you are trying play NTSC or PAL?... on one of my players the default setting is auto, so the DVD player outputs the standard of the DVD - once I changed that from auto to NTSC it converts PAL DVD perfectly to NTSC output. 

I am unsure why you are getting a fuzzy picture from your video player when set in Pal mode. If you get this when the Video is connected direct to a TV, it could be your video NTSC/Pal cnversion is poor. Also, some TVs (in UK) purport to be dual Pal/NTSC but don't seem to work well in NTSC mode (I know - one of mine does not work that well - NTSC has less lines that Pal and when they play back, they start at the top Pal line and leave a wide bar at the bottom, so the picture is offset).

Ok, please don't rate this, I am throwing out ideas. to try to help you, so please don't rate this first post. unless it helps.
Try to put a dvd in the player with it running.  Most electronics will detect the NTSC dvd and convert the player back.  If the dvd plays, hit power off.  unplug the unit, wait 30 seconds.  plug it back in and power it up.  does that work?

    oh, you do need a NTSC disk, region 1

  • Shadow1989 Mar 10, 2009

    if that did not work, is there a N/P button on your remote.  Some remotes have it and that switches from NTSC to PAL and vise-versa

  • Shadow1989 Mar 10, 2009

    ok...did you try to play a NTSC region 1 dvd in the player?

]click the link.

This is a common problem.

Your NTSC DVD's run at 30 frames per second. But your PAL TV likes to accept 25 frames per second.

That said, many modern TV's can accept both NTSC and PAL signals so if I were you I would have a look in your DVD players setup menu to see if you can set your player to output NTSC!

Also check the back of the DVD player to see if there is a PAL/NTSC output switch.


also this 1 more link for more help on how to adjust the settings.

My tv has gone black and white I dont know how to get the colour back


check color system matches . If tv uses PAL then DVD player needs to be set to PAL. If TV station uses PAL then set devices to PAL. If TV station uses NTSC set devices to NTSC for color system.

Change ntsc to pal


The manual seems to indicate that the TV will automatically detect what signal type is present, so PAL should be recognized. There is, however the possibility that the "Color System" setting under the system menu may not be set to "AUTO", but NTSC. This would cause a conflict when detecting PAL input and affect picture. Check the "Color System" and either select PAL or AUTO and see if that helps.

My philips dvp3560 will only playback in black and white


Check the TV System menu:

[TV System]
Change this setting if the video does not appear
correctly. By default, this setting matches the most
common setting for TVs in your country.
• [PAL] - For a PAL-system TV. (European TVs)
• [Multi] - For TV that is compatible with both
PAL and NTSC.
• [NTSC] - For an NTSC-system TV. (American TVs)

Also try:

[Picture Setting]
Select a predefined set of picture color settings or
customize the personal setting.
• [Standard] - Original color setting.
• [Bright] - Vibrant color setting.
• [Soft] - Warm color setting.
• [Personal] - Customize the color setting. Set
the level of brightness, contrast, tint and color
saturation, then press OK

PAL problem


Hi!

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.

Can't get colour when playing back videos and dvd's


Is the picture still or it scrolls? You may be playing NTSC tapes and DVDs on a PAL TV or vice versa. If your TV supports multiple systems, try switching from one system to another (like NTSC from PAL).

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!
