Try unplugging the power cord from the wall for at least 24 hours. This should cause the unit to 'forget' the setting for progressive scan, and return to the default interlaced. If this doesn't work, you will need to find a remote to get into the menus to reset this option. Perhaps a universal remote will work? Let us know if this works!

Stuck on progressive scan


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.

Progressive Scan


Hold the stop button for about 10 seconds. The other thing to do is move the video out cable at the back of the DVD to one of the component outs (there are three of them one for each color rgb) you will be able to read the menu again. turn off progressive scan and reconnect the video cable to dvd out

Remove any discs from the unit. Make sure your tv is on the blue screen. It should say "Progressive Scan Mode"....After removing the disc(s) from the disc changer, close the changer, press and hold the stop button on the unit, not the remote, for 5 seconds or more and it will reset to normal playing mode. Progressive Scan is typically only for TVs that use Progressive Scan....most normal TVs do not use progressive scan mode. Hope this helps...It worked for me!!!!
