Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

1 Answer

Help! I live in CANADA and accidentally clicked the PAL switch on with my remote control the home theater system model DVA - 8700 set-up and now I can here the sound but I can't see anything to find my way back to this screen and click the NTSC back on. I've tried to 'blindly' click through the correct sequence with the remote control to no avail. Any suggestions how I can make this usable again? Thanks

Hi,

Pls try doing a reset by unplugging the unit from the mains for a couple of hours (preferably overnight).

Alternately, you can try hooking it up to a video monitor (capable of RCA/Composite or S-video), a movie camera (switch to external video source), or another TV that is PAL/NTSC capable while configuring it back to NTSC settings.

Additionally, you can try simply pressing the NTSC/PAL button with a few seconds interval while playing a known good NTSC disc.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Check the input selector on the TV, if you have audio only then it is a cable problem,
that means that cables are not connected in the right way.

I need a remote for my ewr20v4 combo recorder


most universal remotes will work may
i would also suggest buying a really nice universal remote from logitec its called the harmony it runs about 30 bucks for the 420 model with an lcd screen. from amazon.com it allows you to connect to your pc to install all the codes for all your devices by just telling the software what tv dvd player etc you have. and unlike most universal remotes it will control everything at once nolonger needing to hit the tv button to change channels and home theater or dvd button to turn on movies and change volume also lets u set up other activities where if you want to watch a movie it will turn on the dvd player, home theater system and tv to the right inputs same thing with gaming and everything different activities one press of the button and everything is set up. also it has a nice on screen lcd with a help built in that will allow you to fix a problem if u accidentally set up a setting wrong via the pc it will fix it and store it in memmory

please let me know if this solves your problem.

Try the help menu in the comcast remote. I believe you have to program it again for the LG to work the sound.

PAL to NTSC


I think your remote control can help you with that. You can switch to PAL or NTSC depending on what will work best. What do you think?

DVD Player - unlock zones


I may have solved it, but will only know for sure when I test it in Canada!

The website I was looking for (and found again) explains how you can programme each DVD player to open zone.

While my Telefunken model was not listed, by following the basic guide I found a setting on my own player that can switch between PAL and NTSC systems, so I guess that will sort out the matter.

Thanks for getting back to me - if I still have problems after the test, I will ask again!

I have a philips DVD home theatre system HTS8100. Its fine except that NO dvds play in synch. I have checked them on my normal DVD player & they are fine. The synch button on the remote sometimes fixes...


Synch problems on Philips machines can be caused by the video output setting.

Usually there are 3 options for video output:
  • PAL
  • NTSC
  • AUTO
PAL & NTSC force playback in that setting, regardless of DVD format, and sometimes cause a time delay in the conversion.

Try changing this option to AUTO. IF you have a modern TV, it should allow both PAL & NTSC playback.

Oritron DAV 3102 home theater system


I found a website for the remote you need. I need one too. Go to remotes.com and put your model number of DAV 3102 in the space. It will show you the original remote and a replacemet you can use. Kind of expensive but worth it to me.

Disk not recognized...loads, but doesn't succeed in playing disk, displaying "no disc" and stops disc spinning. What do I need to do to get the Mintek DVA 8700 to recognize discs. I've opened it to see if...


I had this same problem with my Apex AD-500W DVD Player. I decided since everyone said the player basically needed to be replaced it wouldn't hurt to go through the buttons on the remote just to try and figure it out......I DID!!!! I turned on my DVD Player, inserted a disc, turned on my tv and then hit the SYSTEM Button right below the power button until the screen said MULTI and the machine started working perfectly. There are 3 settings in that button, PAL which made my screen go crazy, NTSC ( i have no clue) and MULTI(this one made it work)! Hope it also works for all of you!!!
