Dvd player split screen

When my dvd player is playing, the image is in blacka and white and the screen is a double image, or split screen, side by side. In other words, the picture displayed is 2 rather than one.

    I am having the same split screen black and white problem. I don't think anything simple will fix this. I have looked into the unit and almost all the video processing happens on one little PC board under the DVD. I think that the capacitors on the bottom of this board are at fault, as there have been MANY noted failures of Panasonic Professional DVC decks due to these type capacitors failing.

    Got a Technics DVD player and the same split screen problem with a line down the middle has started happening (possibly due to my child fiddling with the remote although it was turned off at the time).

    My Polaroid is doing the same double-image thing. images aren't good quality or even the entire transmitted image. Problem is isolated to the internal processor/tuner because the problem goes away when the DVR is turned off (i.e. raw signal goes from cable box, through unernergized DVR to tv). Tried all tv & DVR settings with no improvement. Recording a show ends up being split screen / double image. Esentially, my DVR is a glorified dvd player.

    Same as previous descriptions; split screen in black and white, and ERR message.

Could be that some combination of the progressive scan and the line input is confusing your system. Sometimes the line doubler on the TV set causes this when recieving a 480p input. If this effect doesn't reproduce on another set, then there you have it. Try turning progressive scan off, or change between the analog(yellow) video, the component(RGB), and the S video(fat one with pins). Good luck

BTW anytime I've had a system problem like with NTSC or pal, or secam. its alway just a color issue. now with the progressive scan as silly girl stated would cause muliple pictures. And dont be insulting our technology as if it wasent for us inventing the transistor at bell labs you folks would still be comunicating with smoke or sticks and watching the grass grow??lolHad to throw that in

I too is encountering the same spit screen and black and white picture. From my analysis, I have to conclude that it is a problem occouring in the proccessor IC. It is not a PAL, NTSC issue, simply becus this will creat a colour confusion as Techman said. In simple terms, most likely, you will have to get a new DVD player...

I found this split screen problem after the kids were plying with the remote. Noting the model of sanyo I have is DX510. No amount of changing cords would fix it. Then changed the video settings on the remote. Pushed the V-mode button a few times and it was fixed.

Sounds as if you have the DVD or TV turned to PAL and not NTSC Or the other way round depending on where you live. US.....NTSC YUCK We call it "Never The Same Colour" UK.....PAL Much better Australia PAL The Best BMW

SOURCE: Split screen on DVD player

This sounds like a progressive scan issue (unit in P.Scan Mode) here is a C&P from the manual

Set "Alt Video Out"
Highlight "Alt Video Out", then press the RIGHT button to select
one of the following options:
• S-Video - Select this if you are using the S-Video OUT jack on
the rear panel to connect to a TV.
• Component - Select this if you are using the COMPONENT
VIDEO OUT jacks on the rear panel to connect to a
Progressive(480p) or Interlaced (480i) TV.
• See your TV owner's manual to determine what type of TV you
have.
- Interlace : Interlaced Scan mode will work.
- Progressive : Progressive Scan mode will work, and Video
and S-Video will not work.
• Press the Progressive button on the front panel if you have a
Progressive scan TV only. Otherwise, the picture will be
disturbed.
