Please check the type of disc that you're playing.
Generally, if the NTSC format disc being played in PAL Player or vice versa will cause this issue. Please use the NTSC format disc in NTSC player and PAl disc in PAL player.
Please check if the Player is connected to the display device with the correct cables and to the correct jacks.
Please make sure to connect the Component OUT (Red, Blue, Green cables) to the Component IN (Red, Blue, Green).
If you are using the Compiste connection (Yellow, Red and White), please connect the Video OUT of the Player to the Composite or Video IN on the TV using the Yellow cable and Red and white for audio according to the color codings.
Please try with different jacks on the TV to confirm if the issue is with the Jacks on the TV.
Please try power resetting the TV and check if that helps.
Turn off the Player. Unplug the Player power cord from the electrical outlet. Let the Player remain without power for 60 seconds. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.
If the issue is still unresolved, the Player needs to be Serviced at the Authorized Service Center.
As long as the NTSC DVDs are not region coded, and your TV is multi-standard (able to receive NTSC as well as PAL signals via A/V inputs or similar connections), the player should play NTSC just fine through it
I assume this is a PHILIPS player? If so, most PHILIPS DVD players support NTSC playback on PAL TV.
You are correct, Australia is region 4 for DVD standard. The only restriction would be region codes.
Check that the TV doesn't have the option to display PAL transmissions. It might be able to do it via any of the connectors. Otherwise your best option is to find a TV that can indeed convert both signals, or get a converter box.
You would have to either convert the DVDs to NTSC by ripping them to your computer and using conversion software, or you need to get a player that supports PAL and NTSC. Phillips has players that do both NTSC and PAL but it sounds like the one you have doesn't. I have a Phillips DVP 5140 that does PAL and NTSC and is region unlocked. There are other players on the market that do support it, but you will have to look around a bit.
If you are playing different region dvds, they can be of different color formats also
(US = NTSC, Europe = PAL). If your television is not multi-format then non-compatible
DVDs will play black and white. The solution is to purchase a mutli-format TV (accepts
both PAL and NTSC formats)
