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?
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.

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.
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.
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.
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!
Go into SETUP
GENERAL SETUP PAGE
Go to VIDEO OUTPUT (can't see through error message, but it is the second one down - If you are on the right one, you will see S-Video, YUV Interlace and YUV Progress. as choices)
Change setting from YUV Progress to YUV Interlace
Mine was set on YUV Progress. and when I changed it, the problem disappeared.
Memorex MVD2042 - The only switch on the back of the unit had gotten bumped when something fell behind the unit, thus causing the same issue mentioned here. Looking at the front of the unit, the switch is straight back from the disc tray on the left. (of course, if you're looking at the back, it's on the right side) This switch is for "Progressive Scan" either "on" or "off"
