    I have a friend that just received a Sony DVPNS-400D Multi Region. His instruction sheet says the player has been upgraded using I.C.O.S. modification. He has a region two disc, but when he tries to play it all that comes on the screen is a black and white image that scrolls. I take the same disc and put it in my computer and it plays.

    Do any of you have any ideas? Any help would be appreciated.

    Is the Region 2 disc from Europe or Japan? It sounds like your friend is trying to play a R2 PAL disc on an NTSC only monitor. This would cause the black and white, rolling image you describe.

    If this is the case, your friend will need a new multistandard television to watch this film, or a new standards conversion DVD player such as a Malata.

    Television formats aren't an issue for computers, hence your ability to play the disc.
