Question about Philips DVP3020 DVD Player

1 Answer

I have a Philips DVP-3010 DVD player which I purchased in Europe and thus it was set to PAL video output mode. Connecting it to a US television (which understands only NTSC) and playing a DVD produces a "mode not supported" error. (The region lock on the DVD is not relevant here, as I have a DVD from Region 2 and the DVD player is set to the same region.) I know that in order to see an image on screen, I have to change the DVD player's output to NTSC. The problem is that the system menu is only displayed on the TV screen, and thus assumes compatible and operational video output signal. Thus, I have to "fly blind" in order to make the change from PAL to NTSC.

Check that the TV doesn't have the option to display PAL transmissions. It might be able to do it via any of the connectors. Otherwise your best option is to find a TV that can indeed convert both signals, or get a converter box.

SOURCE: how to unlock it to play either NTSC/PAL

Here is the sequence to unlock your DV Player. Clearly this needs to be done exactly to access the secret menu. So, you may want to copy and paste this info into a word program and then print it.

- Begin -
1. Turn off NS55P, leave TV on.
2. Using the original remote supplied with the NS55P, press these buttons in order: DISPLAY, TOP MENU, CLEAR, POWER.
3. NS55P will turn on, displaying the secret menu on the tv screen.
4. Select 2: Drive Manual Operation, then 4: Tray Aging Mode.
5. The screen then shows two input lines: Input Count and Current Count. Use the code 00030 on the first line. Pressing zero first will take you back to the original menu, so instead of trying to type 0-0-0-3-0, try something like 1-0-0-0-3-0 so the 1 in the front disappears after the last zero is entered.
6. Press ENTER on the remote. Disk tray will then open and close automatically 30 times. Let it do this until it finishes.
7. Repeat steps 4-6, but instead of using 00030 in the Input Count, use 00000. Press ENTER, and the NS55P is now capable of reading Region 2 dvds.

- End -

What video format does this dvd player support.if i write a dvd it is not working in this player


Philips DVP3020 does not support popular vidoe formats such as DivX / xvid / mp4. so if you download movies from the internet and burn to a DVD, chances are it will not work. this philips player is very basic and can only play regular DVDs, VCDs and audio CDs. that is why it is cheap. you should try Philips DVP 3010 or 5140, even better the 5960.

Try to go under the settings in the dvd player. Be sure all the setting are set up according to your TV.

Sometimes if you dont have it set to N. American standards it can output like that. Be sure its set to "NTSC" if you live in N. America or Japan. If you live in Europe be sure its set to "PAL".

Let me know If this is not a issue in comments and I will help you further but I think this is it.

How to connect dvp 3356 t0 samsung 29 inch tv with crt tube.


Please check the connection. If you are connecting the 3 RCA cables to DVD component input/output, you need another pair of RCA cables to connect to audio out (FL&FR rear of DVD player) and Audio in (L&R) in your TV set. Else connect 3 RCA cable in 1-Video out & 2 Audio out of DVD player and 1-Video in & 2 Audio-in of TV.

If you are using the component output from the dvd player (3 wire video) progressive scan connect corresponding cable to tv . Besure to match colors. If you are getting a black and white double image you need to set the output of the dvd player to progressive scan. See owners manual for dvd player to set this. The yelow color jack on the tv is composite video and is not compatible with the 3 wire video .

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)

Vcr only plays in black and white


Hi Ryana,

Check if the recorder is set to output in 'S-Video' or 'SuperVideo' mode, if your TV doesn't understand S-Video you'll get a grainy B&W picture. The VCR should be set to output in PAL for the UK and most of Europe.

Hope this helps

No video in my philips dvd622


The black and white picture is caused by only 2 things.
  1. You are trying to play back an NTSC disc in a PAL dvd player (or the other way around)
  2. Your DVD player is set to NTSC when it should be set to PAL (or the other way around)
You will find options for setting PAL or NTSC in the setup menu under Video.

PAL mode ?


PAL/NTSC is automatic. if you insert a PAL DVD output is PAL ( most probably PAL-B. Some other brands allow manual PAL/NTSC switching, but at this machine this is automaticaly done. Please verify your TV set allows PAL programs
