Question about Samsung SV-DVD3E DVD Player/VCR
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.
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
