You should be able to simply shut the unit off, & turn it back on after a few minutes. This will reboot the player & it should perform normally. If this fails, look for a tiny reset switch somewhere on the unit. It will be marked, but may be a tiny hole with very small lettering, that requires a pencil point to activate.

When dvd is inserted the player starts clicking & it doesn't want to eject the disc.

First clean the laser head with a Qtip and alcohol. It gotta be perfectly clean, so wipe with fresh brand name qtip and make sure there is not a single dust particle on it. You gotta remove the cabinet with star screwdriver. Your beam might be tired. First try with the clean up! Unplugg before opening!

Set up video output

Pal output will only work when it is plugged into a pal tv. The only way you can restore is to use the remote to put the settings back to ntsc without using the display. That should work. If you don't have a pal tv you should never change devices to run on it, because it can damage your tv set. The scanning lines are very different between the two systems.

Systems pal to change back to ntsb

you can reset it by opening and closing the tray without a disc inserted. Then, press "stop" button for 5 seconds. This is suposed to reset the player. If you change the region to "0"
you don't need to switch between pal/ntsc.

To change the region code:
Switch player on and make sure there is no disc in the tray.
CLose tray and press menu,1,9.

A menu should appear with the region option at about the third line from the bottom. Press enter and enter the region you want. Next press open/close. Put in your movie and enjoy.

PAL problem


The DVD player you have is only compatible with NTSC TV. There is no way of changing that to PAL.

It is compatible though with PAL discs. It will convert the video signal of a PAL disc to NTSC format.

Picture problems

Scrolling/black-and-white/"out of tracking" display on a DVD player is generally caused by the DVD player being switched into Progressive Scan mode on a TV not capable of viewing that content. Scan the remote for a button labeled Progressive, I/P, P.Scan, or anything similar. Scan the user manual for information on resetting this also. If the manual and remote come up dry, call Protron and see if there's a key combo you can hold to reset that. Often, holding Play for 5-10 seconds will reset to standard (Interlaced) mode, or holding Stop while turning the unit on. Sometimes, holding Display on the remote for a few seconds will also switch this setting. Good luck.

Dvd player split screen

Could be that some combination of the progressive scan and the line input is confusing your system. Sometimes the line doubler on the TV set causes this when recieving a 480p input. If this effect doesn't reproduce on another set, then there you have it. Try turning progressive scan off, or change between the analog(yellow) video, the component(RGB), and the S video(fat one with pins). Good luck
