Hi, I - by mistake pressed Interlace instead of Progressive Scan. I wanted to change settings since one of the DVDs did not work - it just kept reading, but no audio and no video. All DVDs before this worked fine under Progressive Scan.
NOthing (DVDs) work now under Interlace! I tried to change it back, but i keep getting a black screen instead of the aspire blue screen. After some time delay, a blue screen does appear - where I can choose settings. Another thing is that the player does NOT recognize the DVDs at first, then it appears as if it's an MP3 where u can select the "folder" you want to play. Tried clicking on the folder - nothing plays!
I tried to reset the system - it's still Interlaced - Not Progressive Scan. It doesn't seem to allow me to change it back to Progressive Scan. What am I doing wrong??
Help!! Could you please provide a solution to resolve this issue?

Based on your description, it seems that you set the DVD to progressive scan output, but have it hooked up to a TV (CRT) that cannot accept this signal. Because the TV can't accept the signal, you can't view the DVD menu to change the setting back to interlaced.
On the back panel you have "Component Video Out" for output via component cables, but there is also a yellow RCA connection labeled "Video Out". This is a "composite video" connection which does not support progressive scan. Try disconnecting the component cables and connect the composite video to a TV. The DVD will likely (hopefully) send a compatible signal (480i) through this connection, which will give you access to the menu.
From the manual: Press STANDBY/ON to put the system in standby, then press and hold the front panel (stop) button for about 8 seconds until the display shows Mem.clr?. Press the front panel I<<<< or the >>>>I button so that the display shows Interlace?. Press the front panel >/II button to set to interlace & switch the system back on.
This happened to me & I finally found a manual online that I could download.
Here's what the manual says:
"If you set Progressive Scan to On in error, you must reset the unit.
1) Remove any disc from the unit and close the disc tray. See that "NO DISC" is displayed on the display window.
2) Press STOP 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."
Glad I could help because this problem is very annoying!
You need to be sure to remove the discs from the disc changer and close the disc changer. Make sure that your TV is on the Blue Screen and it should say " Progressive Scan Mode"
Press and hold the stop button on the unit....not the remote for 5 seconds or more and it should reset. However, if your TV is a Progressive Scan compatible TV, you may need to refer to the user guide for the TV as well....Many newer TVs Use a Progressive Scan Setup, but this solution should still work for you. Make sure all discs are removed FIRST!!!
