Question about Cyberhome CH-DVD 300 DVD Player

1 Answer

Stuck on either PScan or PAL; can i reset the whole darn player?

I was fiddling with the Setup menu trying to get a certain DVD to play and accidently set the DVD player to PSCan (i think- so my boyfriend tells me; screen is black & white and halfway scrolling on the screen). the manual tells me to simply go back to the Setup screen and choose Interlace (or NTSC, if that's the real issue), but the screen being as it is i can't READ the menu to make the changes. same thing with resetting- i have to be able to read the System menu in order to default back to factory settings. i tried taking apart the player to see if there was an internal "reset" button, but no luck. read through this site and tried pressing "the important buttons," and again no luck (although i do seem to have managed to change the default language to french...) any suggestions? and who is this "protron" i'm supposed to contact? any help would be greatly appreciated!

It's stuck on disc lock , by accident and it's askin for a password how can we reset this player

Try using 136900. If this password works for you, then using your remote, access the general setup menu and choose the Disc Unlock option (which if you tried accessing it before, was greyed out.)

Hope this helps!

Picture is split -- says P-SCAN. It's stuck

that means it is stuck on progressive scan.  If your tv is not able to handle progressive scan, you need to change it back or reset the player.  
The DVD player may be set to Progressive Scan Mode. You will need to change it to Video Mode by using the remote control. Point the remote control directly at the DVD player, and then press the PSCAN button 2-3 times. If you are still encountering problems with the DVD player, reset the unit back to the default setting.

To Reset,
Make sure you do not have a disk in the tray. Using the DVD player remote control: 1) Press the “Setup” button. 2) On the “Down” arrow, press it three times. 3) On the “Right’ arrow, press it once. 4) On the “Down” arrow, press it three times. 5) On the “Right” arrow, press it once, then press “Enter”. 6) Press the Setup button. *The default setting will take affect as soon as you press the setup button (step 6).
Hope it helps..please rate!

Possibly in the wrong output mode. (i.e. in PAL-60 when NSTC is needed)
On the remote, press the PAL/NSTC button to cycle through the output modes.   Choices are: NSTC, PAL, PAL-60 and AUTO.  
Also make sure the correct TV type is selected in the System Setup menu.
