Stuck in progressive scan mode

My father somehow set the DVD player to prog scan (blue indicator on the front), and the screen is very distorted on our regular TV (black noise, with diagonal interfence lines). How do we set the DVD back to regular interlaced scan? I have tried using the "setup" on the remote, and I have done my best, but it is impossible to read the menu's because the screen is distorted too much. Also, I tried holding the "stop" button done for 5 secs, but this did not cause anything to change. Please reply with any help you can provide. Thank you Alan

Re: Stuck in progressive scan mode

You need to be sure to remove the discs from the disc changer and close the disc changer. Make sure that your TV is on the Blue Screen and it should say " Progressive Scan Mode" Press and hold the stop button on the unit....not the remote for 5 seconds or more and it should reset. However, if your TV is a Progressive Scan compatible TV, you may need to refer to the user guide for the TV as well....Many newer TVs Use a Progressive Scan Setup, but this solution should still work for you. Make sure all discs are removed FIRST!!!

Re: Stuck in progressive scan mode

Look at your remote or the face of your console. If you have a button labeled P/I, this stands for progressive/interlace. Progressive scan mode can only be used with a progressive scan TV. Press the P/I to switch from one mode to the other.

SCAN VIDEO OUT jacks, but are connecting the

DVD/VCR Receiver to a standard (analog) television,
set Progressive Scan to Off

If you are using the Component Video jacks for

connection to a TV or monitor that is compatible with a
progressive scan signal, set Progressive Scan to On.
To ON and OFF this function, Press "Setup" to display the setup screen.
Surf through, and hilight "Progressive scan" and press "Ok or Enter"
Here you can set this function ON or OFF. If you wnat to get it OFF, select OFF and press Enter.

Stuck in progressive scan mode.

Based on your description, it seems that you set the DVD to progressive scan output, but have it hooked up to a TV (CRT) that cannot accept this signal. Because the TV can't accept the signal, you can't view the DVD menu to change the setting back to interlaced.

On the back panel you have "Component Video Out" for output via component cables, but there is also a yellow RCA connection labeled "Video Out". This is a "composite video" connection which does not support progressive scan. Try disconnecting the component cables and connect the composite video to a TV. The DVD will likely (hopefully) send a compatible signal (480i) through this connection, which will give you access to the menu.

RTD 155 - only black and color

Perhaps you have set your DVD player for Progressive Scan Mode while your Television does not support for the same. Go to the setup menu and turn Progressive Scan Off. This will solve your problem.

Progressive Scan Mode

Check for video out in the dvd setup menu, and set it for composite,
It may be set for component.

another thing to try is setting the the progressive scan option off in the setup menu, you wont benefit from it, but at least it might work.
if you already tried using the prog scan and your T.V isnt compatible, you'll need to reset. press stop to stop any playing disc, and press stop again holding it for 5 seconds to reset the system.

good luck!

Showing red image

Make sure red is matched up to red, green to green, and blue to blue first. Then, try a different set of YPbPr (component) cables if you have a set available. If it still shows up red, then read this:
If you are using a Progressive Scan TV
(TV must indicate Progressive Scan or
ProScan capability), to activate TV
Progressive Scan, please refer to your TV
user manual. For DVD system Progressive
Scan function, see page 28.
Helpful Hint:
– If your TV does not support Progressive
Scan, you will not be ab le to view the picture.
Press and hold OPEN/CLOSE button and
press ‘1’ to deactivate progressive scan.

Progressive Scan - turning on/off
To select this item, you must set “Video
Output” to Y PR PB and ensure that your
TV has progressive scan (See page 11.)
Follow the steps of “Using the Setup
Menu” and select :
Select this to disable Progressive scan

These are pp. 11 and 28 of your owner's manual for the HTS

If these methods still fail, try turning your TV's progressive scan off or on.

Progressive scan mode will not disable

Hi, you must hold 1st remove the disc (if you have one in) then hold down the STOP which is just under the RECORD button. Hold it for about 6 to 8 seconds. That should clear it.

Good luck

check your connections on the back of the tv and back of the dvd player. make sure you are using the proper conections on the back of the tv. if you connect the RCA (composite) cables (red yellow white) you should be going from the red yellow white on the tv to the red yellow white on the dvd player. if you have the component(red blue green) connection on the dvd connected to the red yellow white on the tv, you may get a black and white picture. If this does not work, check the manual for the dvd player and see if there is a way to turn "Progressive Scan" features off, some older TV's cannot handle a progressive scan dvd player.
