This is a common issue with this brand of player. While the unit is on, and without any discs inserted, press and hold STOP button on the front panel (not the remote) for 10 seconds, then release. This should turn the progressive scan function off and revert the video output of the player back to normal interlace.
Zenith, Samsung, Magnavox, and Goldstar DVD players are notorious for progressive scan headaches, but it's easy to correct.
Hi jjbitt. I found this in another post. This is what another expert say "With NO DISK in the DVD player PRESS PLAY, (display will say "no disk" or something similar) then PRESS STOP AND HOLD FOR 5-10 SECS.."
Page 18 of the operating manual cites this, to reset to default viewing mode:
1) Remove any disc from the unit and close the disc tray. See that “dISC” is displayed on the display window. 2) Press STOP and hold it for more then five seconds before releasing it. The video output will be restored to the standard setting and a picture will once again be visible on a conventional analog TV or monitor.
I have the Zenith XBV410 (combo dvd/vcr). I cleaned the lens using the Maxell Lens cleaner kit but nothing happened. Then I ran the Progressive Scan Mode and that seemed to do the trick. Word of caution: Progressive Scam Mode is difficult to turn off so would recommend you remove dvd from player, then press and hold the stop button for a min of 5 seconds up until whatever it takes to disablel PSM (Progressive Scan Mode)
With NO DISK in the DVD player PRESS PLAY, (display will say "no disk" or something similar) then PRESS STOP AND HOLD FOR 5-10 SECS.
Our DVD was stuck on Progressive Scan Mode for over 1 year, this fixed it. I had tried the press stop, press stop and hold while playing a movie, but not while there was no disk.
Try it & Good Luck!!!!!!!!
If you set progressive scant On by accident,you must reset the unit.
Remove any disc from the unit and close the disc tray. See that "disc" is displayed on the display window. Now press STOP and hold it for more than 5 seconds before releasing it. The video output will be restored to the standard setting and picture will once again be visible on a conventional analog TV or monitor.
