The TV could be on the wrong channel.
Make sure the video cable is going from the OUT of the DVD player to the IN of the TV.
Try multiple discs to see if same result.

I am seeing two pictures that look like two screens. and the pictures are not coming in clear.


Sound like the unit might be in progressive scan mode and the tv cannot display it correctly. Try finding a button on the remote that says progressive scan and see if you can turn it off.

Why is picture scrambled on my memorex dvd mvd2016


The MVD is a progressive scan DVD player if your TV is 1080i or shows interlaced images only and doesnt have the option for progressive scan this would be an issue. I would suggest trying this DVD player on another television first. Also what is the model of your television?

Another issue is if you have and HD TV and are hooking up the A/V jacks to the HD component inputs this would also provide a jumbled picture. It would be a good idea to check and make sure that the A/V cabled are inserted into the correct input.

I have a surround sound Zenith model # ZHX313 (vcr,dvd and turner). I turned on the progressive scanner while in menu but now I can't turn it off. I've tried unplugging and also tried holding down the stop...


Hi there,

It's unlikely that you've broken it - you appear to be using the wrong method for switching it off.

Correct instructions for turning Progressive (P) Scan off:

1. Remove any disc from the unit and close the disc tray.
2. Wait for the "NO DISC" message to appear on the display
3. Press and hold the "STOP" button on the front of the unit for at least 5 seconds then release.

The video output should return to the normal setting and "P/SCAN" should disappear from the display on the front of the player.

If you are still unable to switch P/SCAN off, please post back for further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

I have the tv only hooked up to a dvd player, picture only comes in black and white, i am hooked up with componant cable and audio cables


Check to make suer you ae not on progressive scan as that will display the images in a black and white format. Also check your system settings and make sure they are correct, NTSC, PAL, SECAM, etc. i hope this helps. Good Luck.

I have a HD TV with cable and a go video DVD/VHS player hooked up. I went to change the time and accidentally changed the setting on the DVD player from auto scan (I think) from off to on and now when I...


It sounds like you may have enabled the progressive scan output on your DVD-VHS combo. This is a correct setting if your TV support it. However most DVD players that support progressive scan will not support an interlaced signal and a progressive signal at the same time.

It would appear that you are using a composite type cable (3 RCA ends. 1 for video and 2 for audio) for this hook up. This means you have two choices.

#1 Look in the manual for the unit for the FACTORY Reset option. Its usually a combination of plugging the unit in while holding the power button or something similar to that. Without a model # I can't help any further with this option.

#2 Use a component video cable (3 RCA red/green/blue) to plug your DVD/VHS player into a compatible input on your HD TV. Your TV will pick up the progressive scan output from the unit and give you back your on screen display. At this point you can go back into the menu and disable progressive scan. And now just reverse the process to plug the DVD player back in using the composite cable.

It should be noted that if you have a progressive scan TV which HD TV's support you will get a better picture if you use the Component video cables instead of switching back to the composite cable. If you decide to use the component cables you will still need to run audio cables though.

Best of luck.

Have sound,no picture


Do you have it hooked up using the component cables?(red, blue, green cables?) You need to use the component cables to use the progressive scan feature. So if you have it hooked up using the yellow rca jack, you will have to switch cables.
