Re: messing around with remote on setup mode and now...
I typed www.trutechelectronics.com in my web browser and it directed me to the Target.com website. If this is where you bought the product, i would try to contact Target. There must be some way to reset back to original settings.

There is a manual for this model available in pdf format unless you have the original instruction book. Page 23 outlines 'command mode' where you can try pressing ENTER and the corresponding number buttons simultaneously on the remote for more than 3 seconds while pointing RC at the recorder. In your case, because your recorder is set to command mode 1 - press ENTER and 1 together on the remote. This should allow you back into the on-screen menu to revert the command mode back to 3 (which is the default) and it should work. The online pdf manual for this model: http://www.docs.sony.com/release/RDRVX560_EN_ES.pdf unless you still have the original. Pages 22-24 show some of the setup procedures. The pdf is not very big so you can save it for future use if needed.
for the black and white screen output of your DVD and VCR.
1) for DVD player: using remote control locate "setup" button and click.a dialogue box should appear indicating " audio setup" video setup" etc..... 2) select and scroll to "video setup". in video setup there should be an option to choose "AUTO" "PAL" or "NTSC" 3) choose "auto" then check if any change in screen color.
for VCR, locate a switch or button indicating "PAL" "Auto""PAL SECAM" "NTSC". same with the dvd choose and select "auto"
note: if you still have the manual for both VCR and DVD check the instruction with regards to video color setting.
Your connection is very easy so we should not have a problem isolating the problem.
We just have to go slow step by step.
First lets just check the Yellow cable just to be on the safe to side sure it is connected properly on the back of the DVD player and on the Televison.
Second, If the connectionn is secured. Turn the DVD player on, make sure you do not have a disc in the tray then turn the DVD player off.
Make sure the battery on the remote control is a fresh new battery (process of eliminattion).
Hold the remote control in front of the DVD front panel.
Turn the DVD player on with the remote control. Look on the front panel of the DVD player, it should read no disc. Press the Pro.Scan button "once". (Have you notice a flickering on the Television Screen).
If no flickering on the TV screen, press the Pro.Scan button again, ( this will be the second time). Have you notice the flickering?
If not, press the Pro.Scan button again ( third time). Have you notice a flickering on the TV screen?
Did you not notice on the LED of the DVD player if it read anything when you pressed the Pro.Scan button?
Try the above procedure again if your picture did not resume. If the picture resume in black and white, do not press the Pro.Scan button anymore.
This may not be a solution, but is a good start. I recently bought a house with the theater system installed, but no remote. Had similiar problems with some functions on Universal remote. Did a google search and got the remote for my system and presto! I did a google on the DVD-108 and saw a AudioLogic remote(similiar, Originals are no longer available), and saw that there is a "setup" button as well as others that may select inputs. This may not be a solution, but would be a good start. Worked for me!
To solve "progressive mode" or any other problem on DV-266, just reset all setting to default, as follows;
Using buttons in front panel (not from remote control);
- Switch off your DVD Player.
- Press & hold STOP button, and press STANDBY/ON (power) button.
Good Luck & enjoy your Pioneer again.....
