SET PLAYER to p-scan HOW TO SET IT BACK

I stupidly set the player to YUV P-SCAN mode to try it. Apparently my TV doesn't support p-scan. So now all I get is a solid blue screen with sound. So now I can't even see the on screen display to try to set it back to the original default setting. Does anyone know how to reset the player chip defaults or have any ideas?

    NEVERMIND PEOPLE. I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M THIS STUPID. BUT THERE IS AN ACTUAL BUTTON ON THE REMOTE THAT TOGGLES P-SCAN ON OR OFF. I JUST DIDN'T SEE IT AND IT WASN'T MENTIONED ANYWHERE IN THE MANUAL. DUH.

I was playing with settings on my Zenith xbv342 and set the menu to progressive scan. I now have a blue screen with the words "progressive scan mode" I cannot get a picture and it is stuck in this m


Progressive scan mode is used by DVD players to artificially scale standard resolution DVDs to HD resolution, usually 720i. Is your set capable of receiving HD resolution? If not, that is probably why you are getting the blue screen.

I was messing around with my remote and the settings on my dvd player when i went into the setup and switched the setting to YUV and now my screen has rapid diaganol lines across the screen and i cant see...


Hey, Try seeing is this helps. I am not sure what your remote looks like. Normally you can just unplug the unit for say 5 minutes to give a full clear reset, then plug back in the wall. This should give a hard-reset, but if not, try:
(Only if your TVset doesn't support YUV P-Scan input feature will this above problem happen.)
Step1: Close this DVD player. (make sure there is no disc inside it)
Step2: Press CLEAR button on the remote control,and the system will reset to the default setting.

Hope this helps!

Cannot turn off progressive scan mode on blue screen to play dvd


If you have not already seen this or done it - it worked for us:

On page 18 of the user manual under Progressive scan there is a Caution which 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 "dISC " is displayed on the display window. 2) Press STOP (9) and hold it for more than five seconds before releasing it. The video output will be restored to the standard setting and a picture once again be visible on a conventional analog TV or monitor.

Connecting DVD to TV


P-scan is used for traditional television screens.
YUV encodes a color image or video taking human perception into account.
S video should be used with an S video cable and standard rca's for sound

Split Screen


Go into SETUP
GENERAL SETUP PAGE
Go to VIDEO OUTPUT (can't see through error message, but it is the second one down - If you are on the right one, you will see S-Video, YUV Interlace and YUV Progress. as choices)
Change setting from YUV Progress to YUV Interlace

Mine was set on YUV Progress. and when I changed it, the problem disappeared.

Stuck in progressive scan mode


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!!!

No picture but has sound


Hi If your t.v.has built-in blue screen when there is no signal, then the DVD may have been accidentally switched to progressive scan mode, or defaults to that setting if new. If your T.V. is not capable of displaying in progressive scan mode, you will just get a blue screen. If you have an older tv, without blue screen, then connect it to that, and if you get a black and white split screen when you turn on the DVD, then progressive scan is the problem. Check the manual for the DVD player for the procedure to get out of that mode, and it should then work. If you still have no video, and you are using the yellow composite video jack on the back of your DVD player, then it must be brought in for service. Good Luck!
