Those are the two common standards; PAL is used in Europe, NTSC in the US and they use different synchronization and resolutions which is causing your problem although it would seem that the menu should still appear since that is an internal function.
I suggest you email or call Koss for a suggestion; I don't believe you are the only one who has done this.

You might try pulling the plug overnight to see if the set will default to NTSC but as most sets today, it probably will remember the last settings and to access the area where this is stored is not a job for users.

A TV shop (if you can find one) will likely have a TV signal generator that can produce both standards and this will enable them to reset to NTSC.

    I'd still try pulling the plug overnight to see if it will default to NTSC since I suspect their sales are still greater in the US than across the pond.

Sony dav s550 dvd has no colour


Hello, welcome to Fixya!

The display setting is set to NTSC either on the TV or DVD that's why it is showing in black and white.

Check the DVD display settings and change it to Pal or auto, save and try again. Also, check the PAl settings on the TV.

If the above doesn't solve the problem,then it means there is an incompatibilty problem between the TV and DVD.

I hope the above is clear.

My dvd's play in black & white. cant get any color in pitures.


Hello,

There are three types of display settings. 1 PAL, 2, NTSC and 3, Auto.

The pal and auto makes a display show color while the NTSC allow a display show in black and white but sometimes NTSC also shows color. It is possible that the display format on the movie is NTSC.

To fix this problem, play the movie that shows black and white. When the movie shows in black and white, press PAL/NTSC or P/N on the remote control and it should display in color.

Or Go to the player menu, check video or display setting, change it to Auto.

Problem should be fixed because that's where it lies....

But if it doesn't solve the problem, please let me know so that I may direct you further on what next to do.

I hope you understand the above.

Good luck.

Dvd is showing black and white


You are running in the wrong format.
If you are in the USA then you need to set the Bose system to NTSC. If you are in another part of the globe then set it to PAL.
The other thing is to make sure your TV is set the correct way as well. The only other thing that will cause this is if you are trying to playback a PAL dvd on an NTSC system (and the other way around of course)
All the options you need will be in the setup menus for both the TV and Bose.
Hope that helps
That should solve your problems.

Koss KS5190 Display mode stuck


I'm not ranked and I'm not a Guru, but I can solve this picture rolling when the problem is "the video was accidently changed from NTSC to PAL and you can't see what your doing to get it back". You will need the remote control unit. First, remove the disc from the tray. Now, turn the unit off with the power button. The tray will close by itself. After the display on the front of the unit goes out, turn the unit back on using the remote control. This will let you know the remote control unit is working. When the power comes back on and the display on the front of the DVD player says, "NO DISC", with the remote control and (very important) while pointing the remote at the player, (Remember to point the remote before pressing any buttons) press the "Down Arrow" button 3 times. This will take you to the "Display" box. Now, press the "Right Arrow" button 1 time. This will take you to the "TV Image"box. Now, press the "Down Arrow" 1 time, this will take you to the "PAL/NTSC" box. If you have done everything as I have tried to clearly lead you blindly to your destination. Press the "OK" button 1 time and the picture on the screen will stop rolling and change from black & white to color. You will have now changed your video output from PAL to NTSC. If you press "OK" again, it will start to roll again. If this did not take care of your problem, turn the player off and try it again.
The previous problem solvers were on the right track, but the track was rough and they just about derailed the train. Thanks to them, I had a track to follow. I had no other information, except what I found on "Fixya.com". MR. CD

Picture rolling when I play DVDs


I used to have that same problem with my system. Fortunately for me, I still had the instruction booklets at the time so that helped me to figure it out. step 1: make sure there is no dvd in the dvd player before you start fixing the problem. Step 2: Press the "setup" button on the remote. Step 3: Once you have removed the dvd from the dvd player it should allow you to go to "preferences" in the setup menu. So do that. Step 4: Go to "TV TYPE" and make sure it's on NTSC. And then exit setup by pressing the setup button once again. And it should work. That's how it worked with my system at least. It seemed to switch the tv type by itself from NTSC to PAL which must be a flaw in the system. I thought I was the only one with that problem. Well, I hope that helped you at all. Have a good day.

Playing burnt dvds in black and white


Cause: You are trying to play a DVD with NTSC-standard on a PAL-videodevice. Solution: switch your video-device to NTSC-standard or to "AUTO". Explanation: I had this "Black&White" problem after I played a DVD which I downloaded from Internet. My video-device (beamer) was set on PAL and gave black&white pictures, but when I switched it to "NTSC" the problem was solved. Apperently the Sony DAV-DZ100 switches automatically from PAL to NTSC when needed.
