maybe the dvd is st to pal/secam, and your tv is set to ntsc...look for the pal/seca/ntsc button in your remote control of dvd player and set the player to ntsc...tv recievers are set to ntsc by default if you are in asia...
You have to use an external device to convert NTSC to PAL or vis versa. The device cost between 175 to 250 $. I think you can buy a small new generation multi system TV for that price !!!!. If you still want to buy click on the below link.
It is very simple, the mode of your DVD or TV is not correct. Check the NTSC/PAL setting's on your remote control for the DVD player. If your DVD player is on PAL system, then you TV should also be on PAL system. Likewise for the NTSC system, possible to put both on AUTO mode then do it. Don't get confused it is just a simple setting which you can do it without any problem, and in future you can do it for others.
PAL is the format of the dvd and there are two main formats for a dvd and they are PAL or NTSC. The NTSC format is mostly used for the United States, and the PAL format is used more in Europe and Asia. An older dvd player will have the format options in the setup menu for the dvd player, and from the setup menu on the tv screen the dvd player can be set to play the PAL dvd's. However if that is not the problem and the dvd player no longer can tell a PAL from a NTSC format then the dvd player either needs a serious lens cleaning or it has a malfunction. Also, the back of the cover for the dvd should say if it is PAL or NTSC.
You have to blindly instruct the NTSC/PAL menu item, which toggles between NTSC and PAL;
This is how it is done:
1) turn your dvd player off.
2) Turn it back on and make sure there is no DVD in the player tray.
This will ensure the menus are active
3) Using the remote, press the dowm menu selector key exactly three times
4) press the center menu select key once.
This will activate the display adjustement menu
5) press the down menu key exactly once.
This will activate the NTSC/PAL menu
6) press the center menu key
The player should now have switched back to NTCS if it was in PAL.
IF it was in NTSC it should have switched back to PAL.
Note: If you still have the manual you can follow the menu tree blindly using the instructions in the manual. The above sequence is for activating the NTSC/PAL menu.
This player can also switch to progressive scan, which creates a similar problem. At least the progressive scan menu has enough warnings before it will actvate.
Surprisingly, and I've never understood why this is, the remote has a lot of functions on it that the buttons on the dvd player doesn't have. I think it is more likely that it ISN'T possible to do.
Look on the front of your DVD player. If it has a "menu" button and a four-way directional pad, you may be able to stop whatever dvd is playing, go into the dvd player's menu and change the settings that way. If not, then you can't.
