Setup menu selected entered component under VIDEO

I was having a problem getting a disc to play; pressed the set up to see if there was something that could help. Obviously selected the wrong setting as I can no longer read the screen menu. Just wavy lines, some words. I should have selected s-video. how do I restore the defaults? nothing will play now, thanks

    For Toshibe SD-3900. I have the same problem. Manual says to press stop button (halting playback). Then press & hold stop button for 5 additional seconds to 'restore the video output." But this produces no change on the screen. Can anyone help?
    Thanks in advance

How do i select finalise on sharp dv-rw 250h remote control


If you are using the original remote or one which matches all of the functions, make sure that no DVD or VHS tape is being played and that the recorder is on. Make sure that there is sufficient space left on the disc. (The space needed depends on chapter/disc titles.) Then press Setup on the remote; it should be below the arrow keys but the position may vary. Use the Up/Down arrows to select System Setup and press Enter. Select Disc Setup and press Enter. Select Finalise and press Enter. Select Start with the Right/Left arrows and press Enter. Wait for the procedure to finish.

Note: only discs recorded on this particular device can be finalized on the DV-RW250H. On some other Sharp DVD recorders, the Disc Menu is accessed directly from the Setup menu.

I hope this helps.

Can't figure out my parental settings code bought it from a pawn shop


  1. Bring up a screen where the unit asks you to enter in the parental code. You can either insert a restricted disc, or enter the DVD setup menu and go to "parental control" under custom setup.
  2. When the screen asks for the code, press the SELECT button, then enter in the code "7444".
  3. The level adjustment under Parental Control dictates the strictness of the player. The lower the value, the more strict it will be. Either increase the value to lower the restriction, or disable the lock entirely by setting it to "off".
  4. Once you have made your adjustments, be sure that the DVD tray is empty, and press the RESET button on the front of the Playstation 2. It is imperative the tray is clear of any DVD or game for the unit to save your settings.

Are you using an HDMI cable? Go to input and select TV. Then you should be able to access the Plug & Play option and be able to turn off the Demo Mode.

Need master pass code to a ps2 to play movies


There is no master pass code, but there is a code to reset the parental settings. It's important to note that 7444 is NOT the password. You have to hit SELECT when asked for the password. That is where you enter 7444 to clear the code.

Here is the procedure to reset the parental lock code:

Bring up a screen where the unit asks you to enter in the parental code. You can either insert a restricted disc, or enter the DVD setup menu and go to "parental control" under custom setup.

When the screen asks for the code, press the SELECT button, then enter in the code "7444".

The level adjustment under Parental Control dictates the strictness of the player. The lower the value, the more strict it will be. Either increase the value to lower the restriction, or disable the lock entirely by setting it to "off".

Once you have made your adjustments, be sure that the DVD tray is empty, and press the RESET button on the front of the Playstation 2. It is imperative the tray is clear of any DVD or game for the unit to save your settings.
