PAL to NTSC output

I bought this multi-region NTSC/PAL player recorder. I cannot get it to play on my American TV. The picture is black and white and keeps rolling. How do I fix it?

    I'm using the video and audio cables supplied with it. (red, yellow and white ended cables-sorry I don't know the proper term). But I cannot play anything because the logo JVC is all that comes up and the screen rolls continuously. Also, it's in black and white, not color, if that helps.

  • wrfrhiannon Apr 01, 2008

    From the regular audio video jacks. Not the component/progressive scan jacks. My TV only has the regular or s-video jacks.

  • wrfrhiannon Apr 02, 2008

    Solved my own problem. I finally got the company I bought it from to email JVC directly. The way to change it to or from PAL to NTSC is annoyingly simple. Connect the player to the TV, turn it on. When the "nodsc" letters appear on the front of the dvd player, take the remote and press the "PAUSE/STEP" button and hold it down for 5 to 10 seconds. The DVD player will reset itself to NTSC or back to PAL output. The picture stops rolling and it turns into JVC with a bright blue background. Instructions are included with it telling you how to change it to All Region. Why this isn't included is beyond me.

    We tried that but it was rolling so badly, I couldn't see setup or menu. I had tech support on the phone with me and he spent the better part of yesterday trying to figure it out. As I posted above, an email from JVC to him solved it in about 30 seconds. Thank you for your suggestions and help.

Hi what lead are you using between player and telly and also are you playing original or copies

  • paul proctor Apr 02, 2008

    so you dont have scart socket in back if telly as using scart lead would solve the problem.
    Right now you have two things to try the first is with the telly remote try pressing the av button a few times see if this will pick up the correct signal if not then you might need to enter setup menu on control and then work through the menu untill you find the setting where you can change pal/ntsc ok
    the second to try is with the dvd remote ok without dvd in enter setup or menu and then goto display this should then allow you to change the output settings on the dvd as the last person could have had it set for another setting give this a try then get back to me ok

Would this player be able to play region 1 and 2 discs? Some of the Classical DVD's I would like to order also requires an NTSC (American compatable TV.) Would it work on my new flat screen Samsung?


Answer is... NO, not unless your TV is a multisystem and the DVD player is also Multi-system too. Some PAL/SECAM DVD allow NTSC playback, but will not allow recording through the line in connection EVEN to a NTSC compatible TV. Best to keep your system fully multisystem if you intend of doing this routinely.

Are you in the US? Your TV system is NTSC. The player possibly plays NTSC and PAL(European system) discs on PAL TVs only. Try to find out from the user manual of the DVD player if you can change the output signal to NTSC. Now it is PAL even though you are playing NTSC discs.

Magnovox dv220 mw9 plays in black and white only


Hello
The output signal's colour system to this player is NTSC. Just look whether your TV is NTSC system compactable. Check whether the disc is recorded in any other colour system, like PAL or SECAM. These are the reasons for absence of colour to the picture. Check whether the colour control of the TV is at minimum.

DVD player only plays in black and white on Soniq 42'' Plasma TV. (Have tried 3 different players all have the same problem)


The color loss is most likely due to a NTSC/PAL compatibility issue. If you bought the players overseas in a PAL region (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/0d/PAL-NTSC-SECAM.svg) and the TV is NTSC or vice-versa, there will be a color loss. Thiss because the different regions have different formats and when you go from one to the other, the color does no transfer over. You can buy a PAL to NTSC or NTSC to PAL converter to fix this issue.

Convert ntsc to pal for sony bravia tv


While a modern PAL TV can display NTSC sources (namely DVD players and PAL VHS players that support pseudo-NTSC), an NTSC TV can not display a PAL source, unless it's an expensive multi-standard TV. Sorry pal, bad choice.

Only black and white


If you are playing different region dvds, they can be of different color formats also
(US = NTSC, Europe = PAL). If your television is not multi-format then non-compatible
DVDs will play black and white. The solution is to purchase a mutli-format TV (accepts
both PAL and NTSC formats)

Pal to NTSC


Hi, Based on your post/description, you need to get a multi-system TV to go with your multi system VCR if you are going to playback VHS tapes from different regions. You are quite correct "Plays NTSC tapes to NTSC, Will not Play Pal to NTSC" to play PAL (even Secam) you would need a PAL/Secam TV. They have a different system for color and audio. In some cases, you can still play PAL but you get it in black & white and picture squeezed from top & bottom. Hope this be of some help to you. Good luck and kind regards.

Black & White picture


There can one of two problems here. Either your DVD player's output is set to NTSC and you are attempting to play it through a PAL (European) TV, or you are perhaps using the SVHS output incorrectly. The solution is to access the player's setup menu and ensure the video output is set to your standard (PAL or NTSC). Hope this helps!
