Re: Rolling White Screen

Sounds like your inverter board has failed.

Yes, it is an expensive fix. You can try asking Best Buy if they can repair the unit if it is still under warranty, or what it will cost to have it repaired by the Insignia people.

If the player still works, you can try using it as a set-top unit and connect it to another monitor through the A/V outs.

Yeah I have a Sylvania model # SP A2751 106. It is a old **** tube tv. When I go to hook up the the dvd player and switch it to vcr/aux the picture rolls in bars upwards. Its not the dvd player tried it on...

There should be a preset resistor on circuit board of old CRT based TVs, designated as vertical rolling adjust. Try to locate it and adjust a little till rolling stops, while playing the DVD. The set will be live during this process, so be careful. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock. Instead, contact any experienced service technician, or the nearest service center.

The display screen is rolling and is in black and white.


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.

Remember, PAL/NTSC is not the same as Region.

Here's some detailed info:

You can convert the DVD to NTSC, and strip the region code by following


[This is very time consuming.]


What DVD

Most players are either NTSC or PAL, however increasingly DVD players from the Far East (Apex, Phillips etc)

, which is 50hz instead of 60hz, hence the lack of vertical hold

Cyberhome 402 DVD "rolls"

I think I had switched to the PAL format by mistake. Fixed the problem by buying a new DVD player, was cheaper than the factory fix.

Press the n/p button on the original remote control that came with the unit. It's located between the stop and rewind buttons.
