When the receiver is on and the disc tray is opened, press SUBWOOFER for 5 seconds until the screen goes black, then the initial language selection menu will appear.

All system settings will be restored to default, the parental password will also be reset.

About half way through a movie the picture stops and holds then continues on. sometimes it skips scenes when starts again . it seems that the progressive scanning quits (IMHO) and player starts over again...


It sounds like it's reacting to the layer change on the disc. It could be due to dust on the lazer, so would sugest cleaning it.
However if it has always done it, the player could be set up wrong, so may need to go to a proffessional/ service center.

Stuck in progressive scan mode.


Based on your description, it seems that you set the DVD to progressive scan output, but have it hooked up to a TV (CRT) that cannot accept this signal. Because the TV can't accept the signal, you can't view the DVD menu to change the setting back to interlaced.

On the back panel you have "Component Video Out" for output via component cables, but there is also a yellow RCA connection labeled "Video Out". This is a "composite video" connection which does not support progressive scan. Try disconnecting the component cables and connect the composite video to a TV. The DVD will likely (hopefully) send a compatible signal (480i) through this connection, which will give you access to the menu.

Progressive Scan Mode


Check for video out in the dvd setup menu, and set it for composite,
It may be set for component.

another thing to try is setting the the progressive scan option off in the setup menu, you wont benefit from it, but at least it might work.
if you already tried using the prog scan and your T.V isnt compatible, you'll need to reset. press stop to stop any playing disc, and press stop again holding it for 5 seconds to reset the system.

good luck!

Resetting the progressive scan mode on an LG lh-d2645 home theatre system


the above is correct but you need to have the dvd player on with no disc in so "no disk" is shown on the front display. then hold down the stop button for 5 secs to reset the display mode back.

Showing red image


Make sure red is matched up to red, green to green, and blue to blue first. Then, try a different set of YPbPr (component) cables if you have a set available. If it still shows up red, then read this:
If you are using a Progressive Scan TV
(TV must indicate Progressive Scan or
ProScan capability), to activate TV
Progressive Scan, please refer to your TV
user manual. For DVD system Progressive
Scan function, see page 28.
Helpful Hint:
– If your TV does not support Progressive
Scan, you will not be ab le to view the picture.
Press and hold OPEN/CLOSE button and
press ‘1’ to deactivate progressive scan.

Progressive Scan - turning on/off
To select this item, you must set “Video
Output” to Y PR PB and ensure that your
TV has progressive scan (See page 11.)
Follow the steps of “Using the Setup
Menu” and select :
> PROGRESSIVE
OFF
ON
PROGRESSIVE SCAN OFF
TV SHAPE
TV SYSTEM
VIDEO OUT
PROGRESSIVE
SCR SAVER
SMART POWER
OFF
Select this to disable Progressive scan
function.
ON

These are pp. 11 and 28 of your owner's manual for the HTS

If these methods still fail, try turning your TV's progressive scan off or on.

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!!!
