Question about Pioneer DV-260 DVD Player

6 Answers

DVD Player set to display settings unusable on available TV ( resulting in blank picture)

I had recently altered my DVD player settings to the ablities of a new HD Plasma TV. I have since returned the Plasma TV and switched back to my standard television that I was using with the DVD player, originally. I switched from S Video to Component Video and utilized the Progessive scan capabilities as well as the 16:9 viewing settings with the Plasma set-up. I forgot to change these settings back before returning the Plasma, and now through S Video, I receive a blank screen on my old TV. I can't change the settings back if I have no image to view the on-screen menu with. .... I'm stumped.

    I have the Pioneer DV-260 DVD Player and I have the exact same problem. But I was tinkering with the resolution settings or whatever and set it to like 1200x800 or something and the screen went blank, I was gonna hook my new LCD 42" up to it, but it's still not working on the new TV. I still can't see a picture and I don't remember the button sequence to change it back and my remote doesn't have a PSCAN button on the remote. Also the DVD player is starting to get picky with the DVD's it wants to play, especially with the newer movies. The scanner sometimes wont even run (I cant hear it even try to read), Probably is just getting old, but I would like the picture back to hook up in another room or have as a spare, It is like 4 years old now but I keep it dust free and in good condition and didn't use it a whole lot. Thanks in advance for any additional help.

Ok folks, I've found it......turn the unit off.....press and hold the << button on the unit....should be the button closest to the power button....then power the unit on....that's all there is to it....as it turns out, before you set the unit to "progressive scan" it warns you about that and tells you how to reset it...

Bypassing built-in TV/DVD Player for another DVD player


Connect another DVD player to an unused input port on the back of the tv. If there is a HDMI port available connect it there if the dvd player has HDMI. Then all you have to do is change the input number on the tv. If you get picture but no sound, use RCA audio cables from the player to the tv. Not all HDMI cables pass audio.

Sony rdr vx410 dvd player playing some dvds in black and white


  • DVD's are standard definition video sources. Number of lines output is 576 lines, whereas your HD TV set has 720 or 1080 lines. This difference may result in a poorer image. However some DVD players are able to “upscale” picture to obtain a very good picture. Check if your DVD player has the following connectors: YUV, DVI or HDMI. For more information, refer to the instruction manual of your DVD player.

  • Some HDMI or DVI featured DVD players also have an internal processor that can upscale pictures from a DVD to 720 or 1080 lines to provide an excellent picture from a standard definition disc to your HD TV set. Those settings are available from the setup menu of your DVD player. Please refer to the instruction manual of your DVD player.

  • If your DVD player does not have those connectors and only has a SCART connector, or S-VIDEO, or composite, there is not much to do to improve the picture quality. Just make sure that you are not using the cheapest cables and that the picture settings of your TV set are correctly adjusted.

  • Some high end TV sets have a picture improvement engine that can soften a noisy image. Make sure that it is activated from the setup menu of your TV set. Please refer to the instruction manual of your TV set.

  • If people and objects have weird white outlines around them. This may suggest that your TV sharpness is set too high. Make the correct sharpness adjustments from the setup menu of your TV set.

  • Make sure you use good quality cables and that your cables are not too long (less than 5 meters long).

S video displays, but Component video is intermittant


Shall we assume that the DVD is fine, before addressing the TV issues? Does it work with any other device or component? Seems that if your S Video is clean, then it's just a matter of refining whether your DVD is as well. Check that, and let us know.

Samsung TXJ2754 (27") DVD issues (Sound but no Picture)


Assuming you have picture on the TV when hooked up to cable, antenna or satellite I would take the DVD player to a friends house to see if it worked on their set (using your cables of course). If you can't get a picture on your TV no matter what, then it could be either the Jungle IC or EEPROM IC inside the set. Since it displays "No Video Signal" on the screen, that leaves out the High Voltage section of the TV. My main suspicion would be the video cable or settings on the DVD or TV.
