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!!!!!!!!

Pressing play while there was no disc in it and then holding the stop button works! Its a lot faster fix then i had to do before, I use to have to toggle back and forth from input to input just to see the screen for a fraction of a second and try to move the setting back off progressive scan every time someone would accidently put it on progressive scan. Make sure your t.v. can broadcast a progressive scan signal before you try progressive scan settings.

Thanks for the help. But uh... what kind of evil trap IS progressive scan mode anyways.

Posted on Feb 23, 2008

Disconnect the power from the system, then remove the three video audio cords from the tv so absolutely no power is reaching the system then wait a few minutes and plug it in. it worked for me and now im watching movies again.

How to get it off progressive scan mode


As with Goldstar and some JVC machines, the way to get progressive scan OFF is to do this:

with the unit on, but no discs inserted, on the front panel (not the remote) press and hold STOP button for 10 seconds, then release. This should revert the unit's video output back to normal interlace and switch progressive off. I hope this works for you.

Hearing static while the dvd is playing how would i go about cleaning it


I have the Zenith XBV410 (combo dvd/vcr). I cleaned the lens using the Maxell Lens cleaner kit but nothing happened. Then I ran the Progressive Scan Mode and that seemed to do the trick. Word of caution: Progressive Scam Mode is difficult to turn off so would recommend you remove dvd from player, then press and hold the stop button for a min of 5 seconds up until whatever it takes to disablel PSM (Progressive Scan Mode)

Turn off progressive scan mode


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.
