Tip & How-To about Philips HTS3400/37 System

Stuck in Progressive Scan? Can hear movie but Can't see Video?

Here's the scenario:

All cables hooked up correctly.

System is stuck in Progressive scan (P-SCAN on display viewer)

SITUATION:  You can hear the movie playing, and you are certain all connections are correct.  Your Television may not support Progressive Scan Video so all you hear is the Audio Track.  Here's what to do.

SOLUTION:

Step 1: Remove DVD from player.

Step 2: Unplug from power source for 20-30 seconds, plug back into outlet.

Step 3: You need to press two buttons at the exact same time.

Step 3a: Prepare to press #1 on your HTS remote
Step 3b: Prepare to press OPEN/CLOSE button on your HTS.

Step 4: Press both OPEN/CLOSE button and #1 on your remote at the same time and HOLD until P-SCAN on your HTS display turns off. Should take no more then 20 seconds max.

Step 5: Repeat all if human error occured and no improvement. Or call 1-888-PHILIPS for HTS tech support

Enjoy!

NOTE: This solution was given to me by Philips Tech Support Division when I encountered same issue.

I pushed the pscaan button by mistake n now I can hear the movie but no picture


This is probably the 'progressive scan' feature for your DVD player.
If you haven't had any other problems with the player, try pushing the button again (a second time). This feature is likely a 'toggle-on, toggle-off, so a second 'push' should turn-off the progressive scan.
If this doesn't correct it, power the unit off, then power-on again. It it doesn't automatically power-up without the progressive scan, try pushing the pscan button again. Hopefully this will turn-off your undesired progressive scan. Good luck!

Stuck in Progressive Mode


Had the same problem; here's what i did. Take DVD out of Receiver, close door to receiver and hold down stop button on receiver itself for five(5) seconds. changes should take effect and progressive scan screen should revert back to sanyo screen.
