    I dont have those buttons on my player .. so it seems i cannot change the setting. Manufacturers are crafty in that when a remote is lost/broken, you have to buy a new one.



    Thanks for you're help!

Surprisingly, and I've never understood why this is, the remote has a lot of functions on it that the buttons on the dvd player doesn't have. I think it is more likely that it ISN'T possible to do.

Look on the front of your DVD player. If it has a "menu" button and a four-way directional pad, you may be able to stop whatever dvd is playing, go into the dvd player's menu and change the settings that way. If not, then you can't.

    Tell me about it. It is really annoying.



    Occasionally you can get a universal remote control that will also give you access to the basic menu functions on the dvd player. So that's another direction you can try. Of course, it is hit-and-miss. One universal remote might let you while the other doesn't! ;)



    Thanks for the rating, btw.

DVD will not play in color, what am I doing wrong


Hi, are you using a UK pal tv? Chances are you are watching a US region 1 dvd which is encoded in NTSC. This will play in 525 lines and black and white on a UK PAL tv. Does your DVD player have an NTSC playback to PAL tv swich? It would simply be labeled "PAL" and "NTSC" If not on the back then possibly in the menu. If you have the switch select NTSC and try again.

Hope this helps

Converting NTSC home Video tapes to Pal DVD or NTSC DVD


You need either an NTSC DVD recorder (keep in mind that the US has 110 voltage, while Australia does not), or a computer card that supports NTSC. Some video capture cards support both NTSC and PAL (often switchable). Choose good quality, and pay attention to video/sound sync - some bad quality cards loose sync. Once the tapes are transferred to DVD - and keep it native NTSC all the way, they can be played on virtually any PAL DVD player/TV combo. With an NTSC source, it's best NOT to convert to PAL, while with a PAL source in the US, you'd need to convert to NTSC or only show the DVD on a computer (where NTSC/PAL doesn't matter).

Set up video output


Pal output will only work when it is plugged into a pal tv. The only way you can restore is to use the remote to put the settings back to ntsc without using the display. That should work. If you don't have a pal tv you should never change devices to run on it, because it can damage your tv set. The scanning lines are very different between the two systems.

Oritron dvd 3119 player


You have to blindly instruct the NTSC/PAL menu item, which toggles between NTSC and PAL;
This is how it is done:

1) turn your dvd player off.
2) Turn it back on and make sure there is no DVD in the player tray.
This will ensure the menus are active
3) Using the remote, press the dowm menu selector key exactly three times
4) press the center menu select key once.
This will activate the display adjustement menu
5) press the down menu key exactly once.
This will activate the NTSC/PAL menu
6) press the center menu key
DONE.
The player should now have switched back to NTCS if it was in PAL.

IF it was in NTSC it should have switched back to PAL.

Note: If you still have the manual you can follow the menu tree blindly using the instructions in the manual. The above sequence is for activating the NTSC/PAL menu.
This player can also switch to progressive scan, which creates a similar problem. At least the progressive scan menu has enough warnings before it will actvate.

PAL problem


Hi!

The DVD player you have is only compatible with NTSC TV. There is no way of changing that to PAL.

It is compatible though with PAL discs. It will convert the video signal of a PAL disc to NTSC format.

PAL/NTSC is automatic. if you insert a PAL DVD output is PAL ( most probably PAL-B. Some other brands allow manual PAL/NTSC switching, but at this machine this is automaticaly done. Please verify your TV set allows PAL programs
