Ok. So. I used to have a progressive scan TV with this combo hooked up, but I no longer have the TV. I'm trying to hook it up by s-video but i can't see the menu to turn off progressive scan. Any help?
If someone could tell me the buttons to press on the remote to change this option, please do. (i.e. "menu, down, enter, down, down, enter, left, etc.")

That means the DVD you put into it to play has recordings with "progressive scan" mode. You have to change the mode of the DVD and TV which you wants to see to Progressive Scan mode to see the disc content. OK.
PSCAN is a short form for Progressive Scan - a line scanning format used for High Definition TV. Standard TVs use Interlaced scanning. On your DVD/VHS player, the VHS is an analogue signal recorded in interlaced mode so is fine for a standard TV. The DVD is a digital signal and cazn be processed for progressive scan output in order to produce a better picture on a High definition TV (or a TV capable of handling progressive scan). If you cannot to your TV via the HD outputs then you should be able to set the DVD player to output interlaced instead of progressive scan.
There are a few options here.
If you have another TV that is "HDTV Ready" logo'd then you can hook this to the DVD player and go into the menu and remove the progressive scan setting then retry it on the original TV.
Look for an external button or remote control button that turns progressive scan on or off.
Remove any discs from inside the DVD tray with the power on, then hold down the Stop button on the front of the DVD player for about 10 seconds to see if this will reset the system to default.
If no joy, you will need to contact the manufacturer for the exact reset steps for restoring to default settings.

Progressive scan video output would be available on Component Video terminals of dvd player so set connections between TV and dvd player via Component Video cable. Please intimate model and brand of product that you need instruction manual. Thanks.
It sounds like you may have enabled the progressive scan output on your DVD-VHS combo. This is a correct setting if your TV support it. However most DVD players that support progressive scan will not support an interlaced signal and a progressive signal at the same time.
It would appear that you are using a composite type cable (3 RCA ends. 1 for video and 2 for audio) for this hook up. This means you have two choices.
#1 Look in the manual for the unit for the FACTORY Reset option. Its usually a combination of plugging the unit in while holding the power button or something similar to that. Without a model # I can't help any further with this option.
#2 Use a component video cable (3 RCA red/green/blue) to plug your DVD/VHS player into a compatible input on your HD TV. Your TV will pick up the progressive scan output from the unit and give you back your on screen display. At this point you can go back into the menu and disable progressive scan. And now just reverse the process to plug the DVD player back in using the composite cable.
It should be noted that if you have a progressive scan TV which HD TV's support you will get a better picture if you use the Component video cables instead of switching back to the composite cable. If you decide to use the component cables you will still need to run audio cables though.
your reciver probabily wont pass progressive through it, Hook the audio from the box to your reciever, and the video directily to your tv, thats a better way to do it anyway, your tv has alot better video prossesor than your reciver , or hook both audio and video to your tv, and run audio output from your tv to the reciver
If you are using analog video output to connect to your tv set and accidentally selected progressive scan from the setup menu you will loose the analog signal output. Turn the unit on with no dvd inside and after the " no disc" message press stop (on the front pannel button) holding it for about 5 seconds. It will restore the original progressive scan configuration (value= no).
Do you have it hooked up using the component cables?(red, blue, green cables?) You need to use the component cables to use the progressive scan feature. So if you have it hooked up using the yellow rca jack, you will have to switch cables.
Goldstar dvd/vcr combo was stuck in progressive scan. I used the posted solution and now it is out of progressive scan but it continuously reads the dvd and I cannot get the dvd to play. "Reading" conitues to appear on the screen. Any suggestions?
