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


You have connected your portable DVD player to the TV.

  • The colour system of the movie does not match the settings of the DVD player.
    Set the AV OUT to NTSC or PAL in the VIDEO SETUP page of the SETUP MENU of the player, according to the encoding of the movie you want to play back. 
  • The TV does not support the colour system of the movie. Refer to the user’s manual of the TV. You cannot playback the movie on this TV.

Notes: NTSC is the colour system used in the USA and PAL is used in most countries in Europe.

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