If you set progressive scant On by accident,you must reset the unit. Remove any disc from the unit and close the disc tray. See that "disc" is displayed on the display window. Now press STOP and hold it for more than 5 seconds before releasing it. The video output will be restored to the standard setting and picture will once again be visible on a conventional analog TV or monitor.

Posted on May 22, 2010

No suggestion; as others, thank you very much.

I was watching a DVD and wanted to see what progressive scan would do. Stupid move. Did not get to watch DVD and lost use of player for about a week until my son suggested I contact you all. Smart kid!

Thanks again.

This worked for me but instead of showing Disk it showed "Progressive scan" I held in the stop button on the DVD section of the unit for about 5 seconds then it changed to Goldstar worked fine after that. God what a stupid way to do this, but it just figures that a cheapO company couldn't afford real programmers. Thanks for the help saved me a paid call to tech support.

Posted on Oct 04, 2007

So suggestion but thank you so much! Our dvd player has been on progressive scan mode for over a month and we didn't know how to fix it. Thank you, thank you!

Progressive scan mode

THis one should be easy--just read it in the manual--reset your video mode by removing any disks from the player, close the drawer, and then press and hold the "stop" button for five seconds. The green power button should flash red and back to green. Hope that solves it.

My sanyo dwm-3900 is on progressive scan mode how do i fix this


If your DVD players is set to Progressive Scan Mode, tehn ther would be a light indicating it is so. The light is labeled P?scan on the bottom right side of your display window.

You can disable/turn OFF the P/Scan mode in the "Setup menu".

Hope 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.

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!!!!!!!!
