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.

My tv has gone black and white I dont know how to get the colour back


check color system matches . If tv uses PAL then DVD player needs to be set to PAL. If TV station uses PAL then set devices to PAL. If TV station uses NTSC set devices to NTSC for color system.

The tv is connected to a dvd player and someone was playing with the buttons, now the picture wont stop rolling


It is possible that the MODE of TV SYSTEM was shifted possibily from PAL to NTSC and so the pciture can roll or be in black & white.
So open the menu and check the settings, look for TV system , colour system and change.

The display screen is rolling and is in black and white.


Hi

You switched to PAL mode from NTSC or vice versa. Most DVDs will only output PAL or NTSC, not both. So even if the disc is region ffree, the fact that it's encoded in PAL (50hz) makes it appear like you describe - no vertical hold / black and white.

Some set top players [Apex, Phillips] will convert PAL to NTSC on the fly or vice versa.

Remember, PAL/NTSC is not the same as Region.

Here's some detailed info:

You can convert the DVD to NTSC, and strip the region code by following http://www.videohelp.com/guides/how-to-convert-interlaced-pal-dvd-to-ntsc-dvd-id1107#1107

When I hook my playstation 2 to my trutech tv, it plays in black and white. How do I get it to play in color?


You need NTSC TO PAL converter or a RF converter for this problem.

your console must be of NTSC type and your TV PAL type or vice versa.

check your tv settings to change from pal to ntsc to get color. Mostly modern TV sets would have the settings to change on their remote controller from ntsc to pal, secam etc.

check you've got it on the right PAL/NTSC setting.It's very likely the 50/60hz setting. 480i running at 60hz is NTSC resolution although the PAL Wii of course uses the PAL signal. The TV probably tries to interpret the signal as a real NTSC signal because it's 480i 60hz and thus can't handle the colors. There has got to be an option to switch between NTSC and PAL.
Are you using the same SCART socket that you use for your other consoles or a different one? My SCART3 input on my Panasonic telly has two different modes - one which displays in colour, and one which displays in a sort of grainy black n' white. There is a purpose to it but I can't remember what it is. :-)

Anyway, you switch between the two by pushing the AV button and then hitting the colour button which corresponds to SCART3 a few times 'til you reach the correct setting.

It probably isn't that, but... y'know. Sanity check.

TV plays color, dvd black and white


Hi,

If I understand your post/description, the DVD plays OK except it is in Black & White. If so, change setting from PAL to NTSC or vice versa depending on the region you are in. US operates on NTSC, Most of Europe is PAL.

Hope that this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

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!
