Question about Haier 42EP24S 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television
Hi, I am having problems getting progressive scan (pscan) to work on my Haier EDTV. I hooked up the component video cables, and ebnabled pscan using the DVD player setup menu. When I turned it on, the screen changed over to pscan and a screen popped up asking me to click OK. If I do not hit OK, the system assumes the screen is not OK, and reverts it back to interlace. So I know it worked because after I clicked OK, the screen looked fine. But, when I turned on the DVD to watch, it appeared split screen and all jittery. The image was as though the TV did not support 480p. The 1st DVD I loaded was Finding Nemo. It as awful (but looked fine through the analog video out, FYI). Then I put in RV (the Robin Williams movie) and it worked fine; it even said 480p on the TV screen (TV automatically adjusts to the correct signal). Then I put in Lord of the Rings, and it would not play correctly; it would jump between 480p and 480i. At first, I thought it was the player, so I used a different one, and had the same problems. So now I think it is either the DVD disc, the Y,Pb,Pr cable, or the TV itself. (Is there anything else left?) Have you heard of this issue before, and do you have a solution? Thanx, Dan

I had the same problem with the picture being unstable or breaking into left and right sides. I finally purchased Monster cable component video cables and all the problems went away. I can change resolution just as the product spec says. I can choose 480i or 480P or 720P or 1080i, I would try 1080P but I don't have any box capable of that resolution but I'm sure it would work.
