Disks are not NTSC


What device are you trying to play the file back on? What type of disc (commercial video or homemade)? If homemade, what device wrote to the discs?

If these are commercial discs, they may be PAL discs and will not play on a NTSC video player. You'd need a different player.

If these are homemade discs made on another device, check if the discs were finalized by that device. If the video was made on a computer, try a different format of the video files; check the DVD specifications.

I hope this helps. Please add comments with additional information on the problem if you need more help.

Hi. I'm trying to play a homemade dvd with several slideshows and a selection menu. It works jst fine on my PS3 at home but nothing shows on our son's TV that's connected to a lifestyle 38. Other DVDs...


The dvd may be in the wrong format for your Son's t.v. PS3's play several formats that the lifestyle 38 may not be compatible with. You can download a video converter such as Any Video Converter and format the disc for whatever format you need. Probably mpeg2. Then it should play on most players.

The tv works but the dvds wont play. The symbol showing the disk is trying to read appears and stays on screen but nothing ever happens. When I try to eject the disc it won't. I have to turn it off and on...


my dvd player doesn't play all types of discs, especially homemade like ones ripped from a home computer. However, i do not play many dvds, yet i have replaced the players many times. I dont think that most dvd players are built to last. Sounds like you have 1 built-in (to tv). The players are cheap now-- your better off saving the headache and replacing it- The last one i bought was $30.00 on sale-get a cheap 1 cause i think they all have a short lifespan.
