Progressive Scan Problem (works sometimes)

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

    Hi Again,

    I found out the problem was with a faulty chip in the Haier. When the repair guy showed up (under warranty) he didn't know until he made a few phone calls. Turns out that Haier knew about the bad chip and paid for it to be fixed. Problem solved! Thanx anyway...

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.

Whenever I try to watch a DVD the screen splits and a message reads "PSCAN"


You need to do one of two things:
1) Look at the back of the DVD player for a switch that is labeled with " PROGRESSIVE SCAN', you need to set it to OFF (since you are using Composite Video jack (Yellow RCA jack) output of the DVD to feed your TV, but the DVD player is set to PROGRESSIVE scan mode, taht is why you are seeing "PSCAN).

2) Use the component video input/output instead by using 5-wire cable set (Red, Blue, Green for video, and White and RED for audio).

We see a yellow anouncement that says PSCAN and it splits the image


Hello
PSCAN; means Progressive Scan. To get the splitted picture together you have to change the scan system of your tV to progressive scan. Now it runs on Interlace Scan. If your TV has Progressive Scan function; refer to its user manual; set it to progressive scan. An other way is to change the scan system with DVD. Try either. OK.

I cannot get the progressive scan off. I have a zenith xbs448 vcr/cd combo


Hi -

The instructions for switching progressive scan off have been posted on FixYa numerous times, but I'll save you searching for them and post them again . . .


1. Remove any disc from the unit and close the disc tray.
2. Wait for the DISC message to appear on the display
3. Hold the STOP button on the front of the player for at least 5 seconds then release.

PSCAN should disappear from the display on the front of the player and the video output should return to the standard interlace setting

If you are still unable to switch PSCAN off, please post back for further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

My memorex combo dvd & vhs player is not working right. can you help me? the vhs player works fine, but the dvd player display's a split screen on the tv with a large yellow box with the word PSCAN....


PSCAN is a short form for Progressive Scan - a line scanning format used for High Definition TV. Standard TVs use Interlaced scanning. On your DVD/VHS player, the VHS is an analogue signal recorded in interlaced mode so is fine for a standard TV. The DVD is a digital signal and cazn be processed for progressive scan output in order to produce a better picture on a High definition TV (or a TV capable of handling progressive scan). If you cannot to your TV via the HD outputs then you should be able to set the DVD player to output interlaced instead of progressive scan.

I pushed the pscaan button by mistake n now I can hear the movie but no picture


This is probably the 'progressive scan' feature for your DVD player.
If you haven't had any other problems with the player, try pushing the button again (a second time). This feature is likely a 'toggle-on, toggle-off, so a second 'push' should turn-off the progressive scan.
If this doesn't correct it, power the unit off, then power-on again. It it doesn't automatically power-up without the progressive scan, try pushing the pscan button again. Hopefully this will turn-off your undesired progressive scan. Good luck!

I have a HD TV with cable and a go video DVD/VHS player hooked up. I went to change the time and accidentally changed the setting on the DVD player from auto scan (I think) from off to on and now when I...


It sounds like you may have enabled the progressive scan output on your DVD-VHS combo. This is a correct setting if your TV support it. However most DVD players that support progressive scan will not support an interlaced signal and a progressive signal at the same time.

It would appear that you are using a composite type cable (3 RCA ends. 1 for video and 2 for audio) for this hook up. This means you have two choices.

#1 Look in the manual for the unit for the FACTORY Reset option. Its usually a combination of plugging the unit in while holding the power button or something similar to that. Without a model # I can't help any further with this option.

#2 Use a component video cable (3 RCA red/green/blue) to plug your DVD/VHS player into a compatible input on your HD TV. Your TV will pick up the progressive scan output from the unit and give you back your on screen display. At this point you can go back into the menu and disable progressive scan. And now just reverse the process to plug the DVD player back in using the composite cable.

It should be noted that if you have a progressive scan TV which HD TV's support you will get a better picture if you use the Component video cables instead of switching back to the composite cable. If you decide to use the component cables you will still need to run audio cables though.

Best of luck.

My diamond dvd player DVDV804-03 has a verticle rolling of the screen.. any ideas?


It sounds like you've activated the p-scan or progressive scan. If you're connected to your TV using yellow, red, and white cables and the pscan gets activated, it cause the exact problem you're having. PSCAN is only to be used when you connect a DVD player to a TV using component cables which are red, blue, and green.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Progressive scan mode will not go away.


Hi,

Depending on the model or version, normally Progressive Scan Mode maybe enabled/disabled by:
  • PScan or PS button on the original remote or front control panel;
  • a slide switch at the rear.
Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
