I have a Yamakawa 288K VGA DVD player. Accidentally, I changed something in its menu, and now I don't get any signal out of it. My TV just doesn't recognize any. Can you help, please? Thanks in advance!
You may have already tried this but try connecting the player via it's composite and component cables. It's possible you switched off your VGA connection in the menu and no image can be displayed. Worth a shot if you haven't done it already.

Hi Thanks for using FixYa. Two things that will cause
the “No Signal” message to come up are - no data available for closed
captioning and a weak signal input. Your TV is in the Closed Captioning Mode.
To turn it off simply bring up the on screen menu and scroll down to the part
that says closed captioning and turn this function off! With the closed
captioning block displayed and the program being viewed is not sending out
closed captioning signals the TV will display, No signal! If this doesn’t resolve your issue then the problem may be
with the processor failing and it is causing a random read of the EPROM to
display the not available message. I’ll suggest you to run the HDMI from the
PVR (personal video recorder) directly to the TV (mute the TV), and then run
the optical audio from the PVR directly into the receiver's optical in. The
closed captioning is something that is addressed in analog broadcasts, but not
necessarily digital broadcasts Try using Component cables if this doesn’t make a
difference. After using components cables the issue will be resolved. Please do
accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further
assistance. Thanks Rylee
It sounds like you may have enabled the progressive scan output on your DVD-VHS combo. This is a correct setting if your TV support it. However most DVD players that support progressive scan will not support an interlaced signal and a progressive signal at the same time.
It would appear that you are using a composite type cable (3 RCA ends. 1 for video and 2 for audio) for this hook up. This means you have two choices.
#1 Look in the manual for the unit for the FACTORY Reset option. Its usually a combination of plugging the unit in while holding the power button or something similar to that. Without a model # I can't help any further with this option.
#2 Use a component video cable (3 RCA red/green/blue) to plug your DVD/VHS player into a compatible input on your HD TV. Your TV will pick up the progressive scan output from the unit and give you back your on screen display. At this point you can go back into the menu and disable progressive scan. And now just reverse the process to plug the DVD player back in using the composite cable.
It should be noted that if you have a progressive scan TV which HD TV's support you will get a better picture if you use the Component video cables instead of switching back to the composite cable. If you decide to use the component cables you will still need to run audio cables though.
My Yamakawa 288 with VGA out was discontinued a few years ago. I know that doesn't help you but Overstock is selling a MixSonic MS-1088(it comes in black or silver) with VGA out. I can't vouch for this player since I've never owned one. There also a few DVD players with VGA from a company called Vocopro. Again never played or even heard of these players before but Yamakawa players don't take up too many shelves in people's entertainment centers either. The MixSonic might be worth the $70 plus gamble.
Possibly in the wrong output mode. (i.e. in PAL-60 when NSTC is needed)
On the remote, press the PAL/NSTC button to cycle through the output modes.
Choices are: NSTC, PAL, PAL-60 and AUTO.
Also make sure the correct TV type is selected in the System Setup menu.
I found a perfect universal remote with the logitech harmony 525. usb / infrared / internet upgradeable. also loads keyfunctions directly from the old remote, but most of the keys came directly from the standards offered. the configuration is web-based and always up2date. service people are also very helpful. can fully recommend it!
