    I had the same problem and I did what you told me to do. Thank you so very much. God bless you, cause I am a broke med student who can not afford another DVD player until after my school loans are paid off. LOL. I don't know what I was thinking putting it on progressive scan to begin with. Curiosity almost killed this cat. So thanks again, man.....

Try this to disabel the progress scan mode: Pointing the remote at the player, press the STOP key to stop any disc that is playing. Next, press the STOP key again and hold it for five seconds before releasing it. This should turn the Progressive Scan off.

I have a Go Video DV-2140. I got Progressive scan to turn off while starting a dvd. Hit stop and then hold for over 10 seconds. It poped back to a normal screen. Thanks for the tip.

I was playing with settings on my Zenith xbv342 and set the menu to progressive scan. I now have a blue screen with the words "progressive scan mode" I cannot get a picture and it is stuck in this m


Progressive scan mode is used by DVD players to artificially scale standard resolution DVDs to HD resolution, usually 720i. Is your set capable of receiving HD resolution? If not, that is probably why you are getting the blue screen.

In the dvd is a red key light and say safe how i can take it out


The only thing I can find in the manual for this model regarding your question about a key is 'parental control' (page 21) for the DVD. The DVD section may have a password on it, and has long since been forgotten or misplaced. You can try to unlock the player by doing the following:


If you forget your 4-digit password:

To clear the current password, follow the procedure below.

1 Press [ SETUP ] on your remote to display the setup menu.

2 Enter the 6-digit number 210499 and then press [ SELECT/ENTER ].

The 4-digit password is cleared.

3 Enter a new password as shown on page 21 of the user manual. (Rating).

If you do not have your original user manual, you can download the pdf free from:

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Zenith-XBV342-DVD-Players-manual/id/374dj497/t/2/

(copy and paste link into your browser and follow the site prompts)

My guess is that the 'key' is a parental lock icon. I assume the VCR part is usable.

I hope this helps a tad. If not, then you have some other unknown problem which is not outlined in the user manual, and therefore may require workshop attention.

Menu screen does not come up when i press setup


Try and unplug the unit 12 to 24 hours as it might , Just might reset the microprocessor. if this does not work, you will need to replace the unit I am afraid as there is a fault in the main power supply that took out the processor. Good Luck.
