Dvd not PAL

Hi all, I bought a Dvd from the USA for Christmas, when she tried to play it on our Toshiba Dvd player it says not "Pal" and therfore wont play. Is there anything I can do to rectify this.

in your toshiba there should be a way to enter its setup page - this may then be set for other than pal.

Depends on your player - read the book
USA standard for TV/DVD is NTSC as opposed to UK and most of Europe which is PAL

Your player may be dual standard -most are these days- all you have to do is find out if yours is and how to make the switch

My Dvd player is a Toshiba SD-210e and is probably at 6 years old if not more. Hope this helps you to solve this for me.

Thanks all now sorted. Set up menu, changed setting from PAL to Auto.
