Cyberhome DVD-1600 In the settings menu I went into the A/V setup. The scanmode was switched to Progressive; however, nothing showed and after the 10 seconds it did not revert to interlace. Now I'm ge

Cyberhome DVD-1600
To set the factory default settings just do the following:
  1. Get the DVD-1600 manual
  2. Open to the page which shows you how to set the player to factory default settings
  3. Switch on the TV and click to the channel that you will watch your DVDs
  4. Switch on the DVD player and make sure there is no disc in it - this ensures the DVD is not already in a menu or any other thing
  5. Follow the instructions in the manual to the 'T' although you will be unable to see anything
  6. If you follow the instructions correctly you should get back to 'interlaced mode'. By this time you will be able to see the DVD output on the screen.

Hi skielty58...I just saw your post, so I haven't done any research yet. However, IF should you see this post prior to my, or any other contributors forthcoming updates which should contain a certain resolution, I would like you to try something during the interim. Play a dvd, and although showing the blue screen, allow to play for about a minute. Now, using your remote, press and release STOP, and within 1 second, Press And Hold Stop for 10 to 15 seconds. This trick is reliant upon the timing sequence, so, you may want to try it more than once. Another trick that I'd like to suggest is that again, after allowing a dvd to play for a minute, simultaneously press select and stop on the player...Please update your post whether positive or negative so other potential contributors have the benefit of ongoing history...good luck my friend

Double screen

There is a little black switch on the back of the DVD player that says progressive scan. Slide it to off. This worked for me.

Stuck on P-Scan


Most DVD players has a P-Scan on/off button in the remote control. On the other hand, Memorex in some of its models have the P Scan switch at the rear of the unit. It is a slide switch.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Dvd player is not working


You need to switch on/off your  Progressive Scan (Pscan) mode. This may be in your remote or a small switch at the back of the DVD player.

Good luck and kind regards.

Akai DVD recorder tray will not open

I am pursuing the exact problem above. I have found a not so hi tech solution. I firmly rap on the top above the disc drawer. This is while Close is being displayed and the drawer is in. If you hear some spinning and load displays it should now work. It may be back to cycling again on the next ejection though.
Technically I figure it may be a sticky magnetic reed switch or what ever they use to detect the drawer position. Mine displays either open or close when it starts to cycle.
