I purchased this player a couple of years back and after several moves through PAL regions, where it worked fine with both NTSC and PAL discs on PAL tv's, I have now moved back into NTSC territory only to find that it will not play my PAL discs on my ntsc tv (my ntsc discs work fine though). I have played with the output settings that I can get to but during several moves I have misplaced the manual and am not getting any response from Pioneer regarding getting another so ... can someone help me out and let me know if I have a simple solution( some people have posted that it is as simple as switching from auto to ntsc in the output but without the manual and with the setting not being in the main menu I don't know where to go....any help would be appreciated as my wife's pal discs are getting dusty and that doesn't bode well for my future.:)

Re: Pal/Ntsc playing problem
Is your tv is the same tv that u playing before? coz according to you if u play ntsc there is no problem. if ur tv is multisystem, u can change the tv system menu to auto, but if not u cannot watch coz ntsc tv only accepts ntsc signal.

Are you in the US? Your TV system is NTSC. The player possibly plays NTSC and PAL(European system) discs on PAL TVs only. Try to find out from the user manual of the DVD player if you can change the output signal to NTSC. Now it is PAL even though you are playing NTSC discs.
As long as the NTSC DVDs are not region coded, and your TV is multi-standard (able to receive NTSC as well as PAL signals via A/V inputs or similar connections), the player should play NTSC just fine through it
I assume this is a PHILIPS player? If so, most PHILIPS DVD players support NTSC playback on PAL TV.
You are correct, Australia is region 4 for DVD standard. The only restriction would be region codes.
Where did u bought this DVD player?US,Canada,and Mexico?The DVD disc. used NTSC region format.Asia,Europe,Africa,and the Middle East.The DVD disc. used PAL region format.They can't be mix or it will not play as u find out.If u move in and out to another region of the world.U must have a regions free DVD player to play either NTSC or PAL regions.
Hi, you have to delete de region coding on your DVD, by using a
computer (either a mac or PC, or linux) then you can play it. However,
if the format is not the same (PAL&NTSC) it's gonna be impossible :
for instance, if your PS3 is NTSC, you wont be able to playback PAL
content, however, I think it might be possible to the opposite for PAL
PS3 owners, since every PAL DVD player can read NTSC (but practically,
none of NTSC player read PAL ...) Sad indeed mate.
Its a pain in
the *** willing to try converting PAL to NTSC. You better forget it
.... However, if its just a region code issue, as I said first, you can
just backup it up deleting the CSS (it's illegal... whatever) and
burning the region-unlocked movie to a blank DVD and play it ^^
Yep, your dvd player may be capabile of producing a PAL video signal, but that does not mean it will play DVDs from a different region.
If you require that functionality, do some research on the internet to find a player that will play any regon before making a purchase decision.
No, the PLAYER has to be PAL Regional - any tv will play the signal it is given.
If the player was purchased in the US, it is NTSC.
Some players are Region Free (especially older ones) - However symphonic states yours is a NTSC Region player. I would suggest purchasing a cheapo PAL DVD player off eBay, and connecting to the A/V inputs on your TV.
