Question about Sylvania DVC-865F DVD Player / VCR Combo

1 Answer

Sylvaniadvc 865f dvdplayer/vcr cannot get the dvd to play

I can not get the DVD player to work. The progressive Scan light is on all the time. When I hit play it sounds like it is spinning but no picture shows up. The VCR tapes come up with no problem. When you hit the stop button it does sound like the DVD stops spinning. I tried this with more than one DVD to make sure it wasn't the DVD. I received the same results. Please help.

DVD player wont show picture


to turn it off select connection method 3 above and progressive scanning mode, to set the mode, set progressive to off in the display menu so that the p scan indicator light on the front panel goes out. do all of this in interface mode. you can also do this by pressing and holding PLAY > on the front of the unit for more than 5 seconds, still watch for the p scan indicator to go off. this works best when the unit is connected directly to the television.

DVD/VCR stuck in 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!!!!!!!!
