Question

Why does the movie have a distorted picture on my TV or is in black and white?

Answer

You connected your portable DVD player to the TV.

  • The color system of the movie does not match the settings of the DVD player.
    Set AV Out to NTSC or PAL on the Video Setup page of the player's Setup menu, according to the encoding of the movie you want to play back.
  • Connect the portable DVD player's CVBS-to-SCART adaptor to a SCART connector on the TV.
  • The TV does not support the color system of the movie. Refer to the user’s manual for the TV. You cannot play back the movie on this TV.

Note: NTSC is the color system used in the USA, and PAL is used in most countries in Europe

 

More details of the color system used in different countries can be found in the attachment.
