Hi
just started to use this site for my laser disc collection, now my 1st post on the forum :)

Ik have bought the DVL-909 EU model with 2 scart en the switch AUTO/PAL/NTSC
It does not play PAL laserdiscs for some reason only NTSC, 12inch/8inch/5inch

When I insert a PAL laserdisc, the player spins and shows LD but then the drawer opens again it on screen it says: "cannot be played"
I have tried any position of the switch AUTO/PAL/NTSC, no difference, in all settings, a NTSC signal is coming out. I put some deoxit in the switch but the switch seems ok

It seems that the switch to PAL is not happening for laserdisc, Has PAL some special adjustments pots for this switching?

When I insert a PAL DVD however, it plays the DVD with no issues! So a PAL signal is coming out of the unit for DVD

Hi again, is this with one particular PAL LD or does the same problem occur with other PAL discs?

no all PAL discs, I tried a lot, all sizes 12, 8 and 5 inch
Somehow the switching to PAL signal is not happening

Today I managed to test with another unit!, same model, the EAN code of both players are the same

Good unit, switch on AUTO
With no disc inserted, the unit starts up with a PAL signal and when I set the switch to NTSC the signal changes

Bad unit, switch on AUTO
With no disc inserted, the unit starts up with a NTSC signal and when I set the switch to PAL the signal does not change

It is definitely electronics related, and I am afraid this is not related to any adjustment, am I correct?

As far as I understand in my limited knowledge not that I know, of and I’m sorry I can’t offer any more assistance, hopefully one of the rather more knowledgeable guys on here will spot this soon to offer some advice of far greater benefit. In the meantime I’ll wish you the best of luck regarding solving this issue, you could of course perhaps just find yourself a nice and somewhat more reliable/less complex CLD-D925 and sell the 909 combi player on for spares or repair? ;)

OK, it is solved! after checking this post:
DVL-909 converted to DVL-91 (DTS out): How to revert?

I came quickly to the conclusion the DVL909 is modded and is a DVL91! :clap: :clap: :clap:
of course NTSC only

Good catch!

I'll add a note in Pioneer DVL-909 to warn about this.
