Question about Protron PD-800 DVD Player

1 Answer


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?

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

Go into SETUP
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.

Turn off progressive scan mode

If you set progressive scant On by accident,you must reset the unit. Remove any disc from the unit and close the disc tray. See that "disc" is displayed on the display window. Now press STOP and hold it for more than 5 seconds before releasing it. The video output will be restored to the standard setting and picture will once again be visible on a conventional analog TV or monitor.

Memorex dvd player pscan split screen

Memorex MVD2042 - The only switch on the back of the unit had gotten bumped when something fell behind the unit, thus causing the same issue mentioned here. Looking at the front of the unit, the switch is straight back from the disc tray on the left. (of course, if you're looking at the back, it's on the right side) This switch is for "Progressive Scan" either "on" or "off" Thanks, Wizard_Yo
