There is a small button on top when the screen closes it turns off the display. While the movie is playing press the small button with a small pointing object and see if the display shows something on the screen for a few second and then off (you can sometime see the movie playing but very dim). then there is a problem with the switch not switching the display back to normal. Hope this helps...

It sounds as if you have inadvertantly locked your dvd player. Try using the code 136900. If this passcode is accepted, then access the general setup menu (using your remote) and choose the Disc Unlock option.

I hope this helps. I completely relate to the frustration of this very problem.

Pushed the pscan button by mistake

Should be as easy as pushing the pscan button again. You might need to unplug the dvd player for a while till it goes back to factory. The P is for progressive scan and your tv must not support P. Once you get it turned off it will work again. There also might be a button on the remote to turn it off.

PSCAN shows up on my tv screen when I try to watch movies. How do I delete this?

The solution to the PSCAN! (half screen cut image) is just as suggested, turn off the progressive scan switch in the back of the DVD player to get the full image and enjoy your movie.

DVD has no color

Check your remote for a button that says, Progressive Scan, or PSCAN. Push it and then play your movie. Should work. Worked for ours. Good luck.
