Why does it only play dvds in black and white

check color system settings pal to pal
TV PAL then DVD player has to be PAL

If mismatch in settings you may experience black and white

My sony dvd player only plays in black and white. Any ideas? my model is HCD-BC150.

See if you are having a color system issue. PAL TV with NTSC DVD player or the other way round.

I cannot play NTSC DVD's on my Bose system

thats because your region is for PAL-SECAM. Your unit cannot recognize this format unless it has been programmed to automatically play NTSC & PAL-SECAM.. Browse the menu and try switching to NTSC format. hope this helps ;-)

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.

No color when playing DVD

your player is set to the wrong format ie either ntsc if your in europe or pal if your in america, you need to go to the setup and make sure the dvd setup is for your region. pal in europe,ntsc in america..most dvd players automatically switch.but sometimes people change the settings without knowing.

Playing burnt dvds in black and white

Cause: You are trying to play a DVD with NTSC-standard on a PAL-videodevice. Solution: switch your video-device to NTSC-standard or to "AUTO". Explanation: I had this "Black&White" problem after I played a DVD which I downloaded from Internet. My video-device (beamer) was set on PAL and gave black&white pictures, but when I switched it to "NTSC" the problem was solved. Apperently the Sony DAV-DZ100 switches automatically from PAL to NTSC when needed.
