SOURCE: Locked into progressive scan AND Setup is Unavailable

This solution will also work for GoldStar DVR1000! make sure no DVD or tapes are in the player press and hold stop button and it releases you from Progressive scan mode. After searching the web for hours for this model got desperate and was trying fixes for other brands and models, this one worked. Thanks koolanit

Sure that's easy, I read this in the manual:

http://tacpservice.toshiba.com/ConsumerProductSupport/Manual/dvd/SDK530.pdf
(Page 18 - Progressive Scan Section)

All you have to do is:

1. Remove the disc in the DVD/VCR.

2. Press and hold the STOP button for 5 seconds before releasing it. (Note that this is the stop button which is physically on the player.)

And that should pull you out of Progressive Scan Mode.

Progressive Scan


Try these steps:

Locate the output jacks DVD player. Sometimes they are standard female RCA A/V jacks, like those found on the front of many VCRs. Others are more tricky, having a small jack that looks like a stereo headphones plug. These camcorders require a special cord that converts a 1/8" stereo signal into RCA A/V male plugs.
  1. Using the proper cord, connect your PLAYER to the VCR's RCA A/V input jacks, usually found on the front or back of your VCR.
  2. Turn on your VCR and TV, so you can see the input from the camcorder. You might have to select "Input 1/2", "Line 1/2", or "VIDEO" depending on your VCR model. You should now see whatever is on your camcorder displayed on your television.
  3. Press "Record" on your VCR, then press "Play" on your camcorder. That's it!

My memorex combo dvd & vhs player is not working right. can you help me? the vhs player works fine, but the dvd player display's a split screen on the tv with a large yellow box with the word PSCAN....


PSCAN is a short form for Progressive Scan - a line scanning format used for High Definition TV. Standard TVs use Interlaced scanning. On your DVD/VHS player, the VHS is an analogue signal recorded in interlaced mode so is fine for a standard TV. The DVD is a digital signal and cazn be processed for progressive scan output in order to produce a better picture on a High definition TV (or a TV capable of handling progressive scan). If you cannot to your TV via the HD outputs then you should be able to set the DVD player to output interlaced instead of progressive scan.

How do you know if you have a Progressive Scan TV? We are having problems playing DVD's from video stores. It will play the previews, but when it gets to play the movie, it doesn't play. I can play them...


Well, a progressive scan TV displays in the same resolution as a normal interlace TV. It's very hard to tell the difference in all respect.

Progressive rewrites every single line/pixel on the screen. Interlaced simply skips a line and rewrites half of the lines every frame. So, progressive can show higher quality, but interlaced was more predominant as it was easier to create for TV makers in the earlier days.

Most of today's better televisions are strictly progressive and you won't have any problems.

I'd try a different DVD player with the selected titles and see if the problem persists. It could be the TV or the or the player itself. If the titles work in another DVD player. Try a newer television and see if it works there.

Hope these ideas help.

DVD Player Stuck In Progressive Scan Mode


A simple solution that works with electronic items many times, so give it a try. Turn Off your player, un-plug the electrical supply, wait about 2 minutes then re-connect the electricity and turn on the player. Many times this will force the machine to reset itself. This technique can be used for ALL electroinc devices.
