Re: No picture

The machine was inadvertently switched to Prgressive Scan mode which only works if you have the proper cables and receiver. The following sequence runs through the menus that you cannot see when the mode is incompatible and switches off the progressive scan mode: Turn machine on (no disc). Press down arrow 3 times, then press OK. Press down arrow 2 time, then press OK. Press OK again. Press down arrow 1 time, then press OK.

The Service Default Mode (SDM) is a technical aid that can be used to display the your TV error code.
Follow these instrutions exactly to place your set in SDM Mode.
For sets that still have video do the following.
  1. Turn your TV on
  2. Using the original Philips TV remote press the following keys. Press each key for 1 sec then press the next.
  3. From the remote press 0 6 2 5 9 6 MENU
  4. You should now see the letters "SDM" in the far right hand corner.
  5. If not do step "3' again.
  6. To display the error code hit the "Status" button on your remote.
  7. The TV can store up to "7" past errors.
For sets that have no video do the following.
  1. Turn your TV on
  2. Using the original Philips TV remote press the following keys. Press each key for 1 sec then press the next.
  3. From the remote press 0 6 2 5 9 6 MENU
  4. Wait a few seconds. The red power light should begin to blink.
  5. The blinking sequence will determine the error code.
  6. You will have one long 5 second red blink followed by the error code.
Note: On some sets the TV will automaticaly blink the error code when its powered up without having to go into the SDM menu. If you power light blinks after the set is powered up jot down the sequence.
Example Error Codes from the power light.
( RED 5 Seconds ) off ( RED 1/2 Sec ) off ( RED 1/2 Sec ) off ( RED 1/2 Sec ) = Error Code 3
Example #2

My DVD is playing my videos in black and white .. It's a Panasonic tv model is tc-L32c5

follow the steps. God bless you
Insert a DVD lens-cleaning disc into your player and press "Play" to clean the DVD laser, eliminating picture problems due to read errors. Do not use a CD cleaning disc as the brushes on these discs can damage your laser.

  • 2 Wipe your DVDs clean of all visible marks and dirt using a lint-free cleaning cloth moistened with rubbing alcohol or glass cleaner. This further fixes read errors which can damage the quality of picture and sound.

  • 3 Disconnect your DVD player from the TV or receiver you have it connected to. Reconnect the DVD player directly to the "AV" or "Video In" port of your television, firmly pushing the plug into place, to eliminate possible noise from the receiver and ensure a clean connection.
  • 4 Connect your DVD player using an S-Video, component video or HDMI cable. Standard yellow/red/white RCA connectors cannot carry the high-quality signal that DVD discs are capable of transmitting, and will display a particularly poor picture on flat-screen high definition televisions. Use an HDMI cable, if your television and player support it, or a red/blue/green component video cable.
  • 5 Press "Setup" on your DVD remote and enter "Picture Settings." Make sure your DVD player is set to display images in the correct screen format ("Widescreen" or "16 x 9" for HDTV sets, "Standard" or "4 x 3" for older square sets) and scan mode. If you are using a DVD player that supports "Progressive Scan" on an HDTV or flat-screen set, activate this setting; for older sets, choose "Interlace" if given a choice.

    I have a (cyberhome ch-dvd 300) dvd player and changed setup menu now lost video cant see to change back is there a reset code or something

    I wish I could find the website that gave all the repair hints for this DVD player, but I downloaded the info, and can no longer find the site. Here is what it says with regard to your symptoms. I hope this helps. I have done all the mods the site suggested, but continue to have difficulty with the remote, tray opening, etc. I have 2 machines and used to love them, but frustration has taken it's toll. Recovering from a condition with no TV picture
    Accidentally switching to PAL and getting a rolling black & white picture happens all the time to baffle users, especially on models with a System or P/N key on the remote. To get back your color and sound just switch to the proper system in the menu or put in a movie of the correct type and it can switch automatically or try the procedure below for resetting to the defaults.
    Sometimes owners will accidentally switch to Progressive Scan in the menu then get no picture at all. You can fix the no picture condition on the CH-300 by resetting the defaults to interlaced as mentioned in the users manual:

    "To reset the VIDEO OUTPUT, turn Off the player, turn back On, open the disc tray and press and hold the Stop button on the player for 10 seconds to reset the scan mode."

    The Reset procedure doesn't seem to work on all versions but you can sometimes get a usable B&W picture allowing you to get to the menu and change the settings by connecting the composite video input of your display to the Red Pr/Cr or Green Y component output jacks on the rear of the cabinet.
    You can also go into the Menu and set it blind with the following key presses on the Remote:
    1. With the unit Stopped, press Setup.
    2. Press Enter.
    3. Press the Down Arrow 3 times.
    4. Press the Right Arrow Once.
    5. Press Enter.
    On 300Z & 300ZS models if the video is set to Progressive Scan and you can't get a viewable picture on the Red or Green jacks try going into the Menu blind and changing it back with the following key presses on the Remote:
    1. With the unit stopped, press Setup on the remote.
    2. Press the Right Arrow Once.
    3. Press Enter.
    4. Press the Down Arrow 2 times.
    5. Press Enter.
    6. Press the Up Arrow 2 Times.
    7. Press Enter. This should switch it back to Interlaced scan with S-Video and Composite output.
    To change the Parental Control setting on the CH-300 use the factory password of 3351. For the CH-400 use 1379.

    Hi We had a power failure once and since then whenever we watch movies the picture is in black and white. Can anyone help to restore the colour picture. We have asked some people who experienced the same...

    You must set your player's video system to your TV's video system. Go to menu>setup>video. Under video you can select either NTSC, PAL or the likes or simply select AUTO if available.

    Picture is split -- says P-SCAN. It's stuck

    that means it is stuck on progressive scan.  If your tv is not able to handle progressive scan, you need to change it back or reset the player.  
    The DVD player may be set to Progressive Scan Mode. You will need to change it to Video Mode by using the remote control. Point the remote control directly at the DVD player, and then press the PSCAN button 2-3 times. If you are still encountering problems with the DVD player, reset the unit back to the default setting.

    To Reset,
    Make sure you do not have a disk in the tray. Using the DVD player remote control: 1) Press the “Setup” button. 2) On the “Down” arrow, press it three times. 3) On the “Right’ arrow, press it once. 4) On the “Down” arrow, press it three times. 5) On the “Right” arrow, press it once, then press “Enter”. 6) Press the Setup button. *The default setting will take affect as soon as you press the setup button (step 6).
    Hope it helps..please rate!

    Rca cables in place of component cables

    Typically the Yellow is video and Red and White are Sound. So only one is for video two are for sound normally.
    Basically they are about the same thing, the only difference there will be cables are made different. Some cables are better than others at transferring signals be they video or sound. So quality might be affected slightly.

    I have the manual. Are you trying to record something live? if so:

    1) Turn on both the DVD/VCR and your TV.
    2) Switch the input selector on your TV so that the signal from the player appears on the TV screen (this is usually something like 'input 1' or 'line 1' and so forth)
    3) On your remote, set TV/DVD-VIDEO to DVD-Video, then press SELECT VIDEO to control the VCR. These buttons are at the upper left hand corner of the remote controller.
    4) To record from a cable box, turn it on.
    5) make sure the tape is longer than the total recording time.
    6) insert a tape into the VCR.
    7) press CH +/- on the remote to select the channel or line input video source to record.
    8) select the tape speed SP/EP (SP provides better quality, EP provides three times the recording time as SP)
    9) Press the record button to start recording. The VCR display will display the message REC.

    Can't get it to record

    if your cable box is digital it should have the yellow, white, red rca jacks in the back run those to the rear a/v input on your recorder then cycle through the input switch on the remote until you see the picture. (i have the same model i hope you have better luck with yours...i can't record on any new 4x or slower +rw disc i had mine since 2006 i should've got a sony!)
