from past experience

we lived in London for a few years

if you wish to watch on your TV connected to this DVD player you'll

need a PAL TV as well.

Ther is probably a legal aspect if you purchased the DVD from the UK.

Illegal to play or view our side of the license area/region.

you might contact the seller to exchange for a NTSC formatted DVD

If you want or are willing to view on a PC, MAC, Tablet and the end user license allows ther are articles on the Internet on how to change the region code.

MAC only allows the region code to be changed a limited number of times.

or as Phillip suggests use a DVD player/viewer if allowed by the license.

Bought a DVD from London and I can't get a picture-only sound and a message that says “unsupported document”. Is there a nothing I can do yo convert it to our system so the DVD will work??

This problem description implies there is a document format problem, not a DVD region problem. Try the VLC media player. It plays/displays almost anything. Reference https://www.videolan.org/vlc/ . You will need to download and install VLC.

I purchased a DVD from London and it won't play on my DVD player. Apparently their system is different from ours. Is there any way I can get the DVD to play on my player? c

I know of two possible reasons for what I think you are describing. The first is identified by this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_region_code . This item identifies the concept of “region codes” built into the hardware/firmware of a DVD player. A DVD player can be limited to playing DVD's intended for a specific part of the world. If I assume you are trying to play the DVD on a computer, the other possibility is the software does not understand the format of the DVD. My go to solution for DVD “format” issues is VLC media player. https://www.videolan.org/vlc/.

D, thank you for taking the time to offer constructive thoughts. I will look for a “Grammarly” extension for the wiki.

Not sure you will get much participation but this is generally a good idea for the computer literate amongst us. I would encourage posters to be more elegant with their words. The average reader fatigues quickly with higher word count. All the best. DNoe
