Re: How to reset (manually) factory defaults?
Press Setup,Right Arrow,Press Down 3 Times,Then Enter 2 times this should reset factory settings, I Hope This Is Correct As I Realize You Cant See The Menu But I Studied The Manual And Wrote Out The Exact Key Movements To Navigate The Restore Factory Settings menu. Hope This Helps Sincerely, Michael Scott
Although not a very visible fix it can be done quickly if you still have your user's manual. Locate your configuring your recorder section of your manual. Get familuar with the system setup - general page. Push the setup button on your remote and navigate yourself through the unclear display using your manual. Then simply toggle between Progressive and Interlace video. Other option using same page in manual and same "blind" procedure just restore your factory setting.
Hopefully fixes your problem or at least points you in the right direction.

While stopped and "DVD/CD" is the source,
press and hold [STOP] on the main unit and [>10] on the remote control until
"INITIALIZED" disappears from the TV. Turn the unit off and on again. All
settings will return to the default values. (This does not work during program
and random modes, or when setup menu or START menu is displayed.)
If your TV has progressive scan capability, you may be able to view the on-screen setup menu via the recorder - select 'SETUP' press 'ENTER' on your DVD recorder's remote to bring up the menu - with the remote arrow buttons, scroll down to select 'VIDEO' then 'PROGRESSIVE' - highlight it then set it to OFF (you cannot do this with a TV that does not support progressive scan from this unit). Once done, exit the setup menu and it should work fine with all the other settings. If your TV doesn't have progressive scan, connect the DVD recorder to one which does and turn its progressive output off there. I assume you still have the user manual for your recorder (if not, you can download it online for free as an Adobe document - .pdf. Page 73 details the setup steps for this model). I hope this tip helps somewhat.
If you are using analog video output to connect to your tv set and accidentally selected progressive scan from the setup menu you will loose the analog signal output. Turn the unit on with no dvd inside and after the " no disc" message press stop (on the front pannel button) holding it for about 5 seconds. It will restore the original progressive scan configuration (value= no).
Small print in the manual says to hold down the 100/P.Scan button on the remote to toggle between progressive and interlaced. This was after I blindly tried to follow the setup screens in the manual and found that the manual doesn't match the exact screens (must be a firmware difference?) in the manual.
Also found that the factory default instructions in the manual do not include a yes/no confirmation screen.
You might want to reset to factory defaults, but there is an error in the manual. In order to reset to factory defaults, turn on (with no disc inside), DO NOT OPEN THE DISC TRAY, just press the stop button on the player for 5 seconds.
Once the setting for Progressive Scan output is entered,
an image will only be visible on a Progressive Scan compatible
TV or monitor. If you set Progressive Scan to On in
error, you must reset the unit. Pointing the remote at the
player, press the STOP (x) button to stop any disc that is
playing. Next, press the STOP (x) button again and hold it
for five seconds before releasing it. The video output will
be restored to the standard setting, and a picture will once
again be visible on a conventional analog TV or monitor.
I own this model and do have the manual; however, standard AV and S-Video connections do not transfer progressive scan video images. If you hookup a progressive scan output to a non-progressive scan TV input, you will not get an image, so it is probably the way you have your machine connected to your TV that is the problem. If you are trying to watch regular TV through your machine, you will probably need to use a standard Coaxial Cable. I hope this helps.
