Question about Oritron DVD20

Open Question

Oritron no picture

We were trying to get our surround speakers set up on our Oritron DVD..when we were going thru the menu to set all the parameters, we changed from PAL to NTSC and we've lost the picture. We've got audio, but with no picture, we can't even get back to the menu to reset. Don't know if it was the PAL/NTSC change that did it, but we're without a picture..

You have to blindly instruct the NTSC/PAL menu item, which toggles between NTSC and PAL;
This is how it is done:

1) turn your dvd player off.
2) Turn it back on and make sure there is no DVD in the player tray.
This will ensure the menus are active
3) Using the remote, press the dowm menu selector key exactly three times
4) press the center menu select key once.
This will activate the display adjustement menu
5) press the down menu key exactly once.
This will activate the NTSC/PAL menu
6) press the center menu key
The player should now have switched back to NTCS if it was in PAL.

IF it was in NTSC it should have switched back to PAL.

Note: If you still have the manual you can follow the menu tree blindly using the instructions in the manual. The above sequence is for activating the NTSC/PAL menu.
This player can also switch to progressive scan, which creates a similar problem. At least the progressive scan menu has enough warnings before it will actvate.

I would make sure to add step 2.1 which is to select the menu button. I tried these steps but without selecting the menu button first, I could not reset. Good luck

How do you adjust the speed for viewing pictures on the dvd player

There should be a setting that lets you adjust it in the setup menu. Although it may only offer fast or slow as a spped options. Good Luck.

GO VIDEO DVD + VCR model: DV 1130 I want only the basic connection

Once the setting for Progressive Scan output is entered,
an image will only be visible on a Progressive Scan compatible
TV or monitor. If you set Progressive Scan to On in
error, you must reset the unit. Pointing the remote at the
player, press the STOP (x) button to stop any disc that is
playing. Next, press the STOP (x) button again 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.

DVD sound problem

Go into the setup menu into the audio options (use arrows on remote to go up and down menu and press left to enter the next menu to change options). By memory when I was running this just through a TV and not through a surround sound system, I had to turn off the addition speaker options in the audio menu. The one's like centre speaker etc have an small/large/off option. I had to turn these off so that all sound would come through the TV speaker only. That is about all I remember as I was trying to get this running for my aunt and I no longer have the DVD player.
