I moved my cyberhome dvd recorder/player and when I began to reset it - I inadverdently pressed the pal button on the setup for our region - now I cannot reset it using the setup as it rolls continuously and i cannot see the choices - How do I stop the roll in order to get back to ntsc?
Once you set yor dvd Cyberhome 300 in PAL/NTSC then suddenly the picture blank in tv screen, you may turn on your dvd power then press stop buttom in your dvd player until picture appear maybe 10-15 seconds.
After checking today to see no one offered any suggestions - I solved the problem the hard way - I went into settings and although the screen rolled, I was finally able to click onto the ntsc setting after about a half hour of tries and once I clicked it, my screen returned to normal -- i was then able to enter the code that made the player an all region player and was happily able to play a pal dvd I received recently. The procedure was simple -- offered by a European Cyberhome user -- the company is in bankruptcy so you cannot gt help from them. Note - my Cyberhome dvr is 1500- not 1600 as you listed it.

Yes there is video format for our TV and dvd players. NTSC & PAL...
NTSC SYSTEM SELECTED IN TV & DVD PLAYER PLAY PERFECT NTSC CDS & DVDS, BUT IF PAL CD OR DVD IS INSERTED SUCH PROBLEM COMES. EVEN IF, THE DVD PLAYER SETTING IS KEPT AS PAL, AND WE INSERTING THE CORRECT CD OR DVD AND ALSO IT SHOW BLACK & WHITE PICTURE, ETC.... so please check your video system in TV, DVD PLAYER and check the CD or DVD you are inserting is of same video format you have set in DVD player.
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).
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.
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
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.
This might be a case of the player being in the PAL system. Your player is supposed to employ both PAL and NTSC systems. Just look for a key listed N/P on the remote.Press that key once, and you are supposed to be ok.
you can reset it by opening and closing the tray without a disc inserted. Then, press "stop" button for 5 seconds. This is suposed to reset the player. If you change the region to "0"
you don't need to switch between pal/ntsc.
To change the region code:
Switch player on and make sure there is no disc in the tray. CLose tray and press menu,1,9.
A menu should appear with the region option at about the third line from the bottom. Press enter and enter the region you want. Next press open/close. Put in your movie and enjoy.
You might want to reset to factory defaults, but there is an error in the manual. In order to reset to factory defaults, turn on (with no disc inside), DO NOT OPEN THE DISC TRAY, just press the stop button on the player for 5 seconds.
