    when i play some of my region 2 discs (classic B &W films/progs)flashes of colour appear on the screen

    should i set the dvd player to output as NTSC, PAL or Auto ??

    Why don't you just try it - nothing will get damaged by that ...

    R2 disks are PAL and so your DVD player should be set to PAL (or AUTO, try both).

    If it only happens on B&W footage though, it may be a problem with the TV set ....

    If disc = NTSC
    If player = Auto, output is in NTSC
    If player = NTSC, output is NTSC
    If player = PAL, output is either PAL50 or PAL 60 depending on the player. PAL60 is more common.

    If Auto works, use it. If not, set it to PAL. If that doesn't work, you need a new TV or a repair.
