SOURCE: Locked into progressive scan AND Setup is Unavailable

The key is to make sure you REMOVE all DVDs and VCRs from the player, then hold the stop button on the unit down for 5 seconds.

SOURCE: Progressive Scan

Hold the stop button for about 10 seconds. The other thing to do is move the video out cable at the back of the DVD to one of the component outs (there are three of them one for each color rgb) you will be able to read the menu again. turn off progressive scan and reconnect the video cable to dvd out

Turn off the progressive scan mode?

is this question about the progressive scan when going to dvd mode more than likely the switch to control your p scan is on the back of your vcr/dvd player near the center look on the back and flick the switch to off usually the switches are just black moving left and right if not go into your menu and look for progressive scan mode if its not directly on the menu it is more than likely in the settings folder.Also if your remote is like the one i posted just click the p.scan button

I have a surround sound Zenith model # ZHX313 (vcr,dvd and turner). I turned on the progressive scanner while in menu but now I can't turn it off. I've tried unplugging and also tried holding down the stop...

Hi there,

It's unlikely that you've broken it - you appear to be using the wrong method for switching it off.

Correct instructions for turning Progressive (P) Scan off:

1. Remove any disc from the unit and close the disc tray.
2. Wait for the "NO DISC" message to appear on the display
3. Press and hold the "STOP" button on the front of the unit for at least 5 seconds then release.

The video output should return to the normal setting and "P/SCAN" should disappear from the display on the front of the player.

If you are still unable to switch P/SCAN off, please post back for further assistance.

DVD player wont show picture

to turn it off select connection method 3 above and progressive scanning mode, to set the mode, set progressive to off in the display menu so that the p scan indicator light on the front panel goes out. do all of this in interface mode. you can also do this by pressing and holding PLAY > on the front of the unit for more than 5 seconds, still watch for the p scan indicator to go off. this works best when the unit is connected directly to the television.

DVD/VCR combo player won't work

I had a similar problem and corrected it with a solution found on another site. Try hitting the I/P button on the remote which controls whether "Interlaced" or "Progressive Scan" is used to display the image on the TV. Mine worked when "Interlaced" was used. but no picture was displayed when "Progressive Scan" was used. The I/P button toggles between the two settings.

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.
