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

How to turn a sony bdp-s790 dvd multi region


Buy two players. One from each region.
If you ave an NTSC TV only, you will also need a PAL to NTSC converter, if you want to play UK PAL DVD`s on US or Asian TV`s. But I think all Euro/UK TV`s are all both color signals (PAL & NTSC).

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.

My philips dvp3560 will only playback in black and white


Check the TV System menu:

[TV System]
Change this setting if the video does not appear
correctly. By default, this setting matches the most
common setting for TVs in your country.
• [PAL] - For a PAL-system TV. (European TVs)
• [Multi] - For TV that is compatible with both
PAL and NTSC.
• [NTSC] - For an NTSC-system TV. (American TVs)

Also try:

[Picture Setting]
Select a predefined set of picture color settings or
customize the personal setting.
• [Standard] - Original color setting.
• [Bright] - Vibrant color setting.
• [Soft] - Warm color setting.
• [Personal] - Customize the color setting. Set
the level of brightness, contrast, tint and color
saturation, then press OK

DVD PLAYS THE MOVIES BLACK AND WHITE


This is usually associated with trying to play NTSC formatted DVD's on this PAL player. As you might not know even if the unit is set region free (Region Code 0) the movie is still encoded for NTSC.

You can also get this problem if you are using S-Video plug with a SCART Adapter and the switch is set to output instead of input something to do with the internal pins. I recommend using SCART to SCART or HDMI if you have it

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)

I bought a dvd player cobusa model dvd-224. the box stated that it can play Pal and NTSC dvd discs.How does one setup for pal region 5 disc? When I setup for pal I get a rolling black and white picture...


Check to be sure that the setup is correct. The picture you are describing is what happens when you play PAL into an NTSC unit. I don't think you are in PAL mode.

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!
