Plays movies in black and white? not in color!

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. Check on the dvd menu for the video format maybe that´s the problem , hope this helps , AJ

Possibly in the wrong output mode. (i.e. in PAL-60 when NSTC is needed)
On the remote, press the PAL/NSTC button to cycle through the output modes.   Choices are: NSTC, PAL, PAL-60 and AUTO.  
Also make sure the correct TV type is selected in the System Setup menu.

My rca 2002 rtdvd1 player only plays ntsc format. I can unlock any codes so it will play PAL?

Unless it's built into the settings but most players designed for NTSC will only play NTSC. Those made for PAL will play PAL.

Theres too many radical changes in video signals to make one device handle both formats.

PAL to NTSC conversion

This is not a converting unit, it will play the format of the tape inside. To convert the signal you need one of the following:

1) A converting VHS player; they are fairly expensive.
2) A separate video converter (hardware); they run for about $200-$500; just put this between your VCR and the TV.
3) Capture the PAL on your computer using a software like Movie Maker via a Firewire cable. Than convert it to NTSC on your machine using software like Nero... do a search on Google for converting software. Or just watch it on our computer in PAL format, most computers do that... For this step I use a separate camcoder that has a passthrough feature. The VCR connects to it and the camcorder connects to the computer via Firewire.
4) send the PAL tape to a specialized shop for conversion. They normally charge $30-$40 for a regular 2h VHS tape.
