Question about Televison & Video
...first day with the machine...watching a dvd happily...accidently pushed 'pal/ntsc' button...now have sound and no picture...tried pushing again and tried getting into 'setup'...to no avail...help please...thank you...
Your connection is very easy so we should not have a problem isolating the problem.
We just have to go slow step by step.
First lets just check the Yellow cable just to be on the safe to side sure it is connected properly on the back of the DVD player and on the Televison.
Second, If the connectionn is secured. Turn the DVD player on, make sure you do not have a disc in the tray then turn the DVD player off.
Make sure the battery on the remote control is a fresh new battery (process of eliminattion).
Hold the remote control in front of the DVD front panel.
Turn the DVD player on with the remote control. Look on the front panel of the DVD player, it should read no disc. Press the Pro.Scan button "once". (Have you notice a flickering on the Television Screen).
If no flickering on the TV screen, press the Pro.Scan button again, ( this will be the second time). Have you notice the flickering?
If not, press the Pro.Scan button again ( third time). Have you notice a flickering on the TV screen?
Did you not notice on the LED of the DVD player if it read anything when you pressed the Pro.Scan button?
Try the above procedure again if your picture did not resume. If the picture resume in black and white, do not press the Pro.Scan button anymore.
Let me know the outcome up to this point.

4a. Then press "OK" and Audio will be highlighted.
b. Press the "down" arrow and the next category "Subtitles" will be highlighted.

Hi, Remove the disc from the DVD tray then try pressing the PALl/NTSC button on the remote control three times. If the picture does not return, then you might accidently press the P.Scan button as well. Press the P.Scan button on the remote control three to four times, you should get the picture back. Dont forget to make sure you do not have a disk in the tray. Let me know the outcome so that I can further assist you. Thanks, MIke
