    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.

Connecting Virginmedia TV settop box to PC using Philips TV capture card. Result - sound and picture BUT black & white!!


You are either running NTSC into a Pal system or the other way around. Check the setup menu on the Virginmedia box to make sure what it's running, then make sure the TV card is running in the same format.

Hope that helps =)

My tv has NTSC system but our local transmission is pal system. so picture is black & white and has no audio


hi,

It seems you are going to have to buy a PAL to NTSC converter box, check out the following info i got from eHow.

NTSC, or National Television System Committee, is the system used to broadcast television that is still analog in North and South America and parts of Asia. PAL, or Phase Alternate Line, is one of the other two analog broadcast systems used in much of the rest of the world. If you are in an area that can pick up both, but your television is made to receive only one of them, you can buy an PAL-to-NTSC converter that will allow the correct input to your TV.

Purchase a PAL-NTSC converter. Most mid-range converters will convert back and forth between either system, so if you're not sure which system your television picks up, you can buy one of the dual converters. See the References section for an example of a mid-range converter. When you purchase, choose either 110V or 220V power source, and which country you are ordering from (you will need the appropriate power cord adapter for your country).

Plug the included connector cord from the "Input" (or possibly "Antennae") jack on the back of your television to the "Output" on the converter. Also, plug the power adapter into a floor jack or other power supply.

Move the Input switch to PAL and the Output switch to NTSC on the converter if it is a dual converter. This will enable you to receive PAL TV signals and convert them for your NTSC TV.

I have sony wega trinitron and a day back purchased a new LG DVD player but the picture is black and white.I tried the Setup to change the color from auto to PAL but the option color change is permanantly...


Hello
Your TV model has only NTSC system with it. No PAL or SECAM. It is not a mutisystem compactable one. Check whether your DVD has NTSC playback option. If it has, you can see discs writed in NTSC system through your TV. If it has not equipped with that system, it is useless for your TV. Sony KV32FS120 and KV36FS120 models are only meant of US standard, and have only NTSC system with it. Ok.

When you insert a dvd it says PAL DISK


PAL is the format of the dvd and there are two main formats for a dvd and they are PAL or NTSC. The NTSC format is mostly used for the United States, and the PAL format is used more in Europe and Asia. An older dvd player will have the format options in the setup menu for the dvd player, and from the setup menu on the tv screen the dvd player can be set to play the PAL dvd's. However if that is not the problem and the dvd player no longer can tell a PAL from a NTSC format then the dvd player either needs a serious lens cleaning or it has a malfunction. Also, the back of the cover for the dvd should say if it is PAL or NTSC.

Pal to NTSC


Hi, Based on your post/description, you need to get a multi-system TV to go with your multi system VCR if you are going to playback VHS tapes from different regions. You are quite correct "Plays NTSC tapes to NTSC, Will not Play Pal to NTSC" to play PAL (even Secam) you would need a PAL/Secam TV. They have a different system for color and audio. In some cases, you can still play PAL but you get it in black & white and picture squeezed from top & bottom. Hope this be of some help to you. Good luck and kind regards.

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!
