How do I turn off Progressive scan?

I was going through some of the features and turned on the Progressive Scan. My Plasma TV does not seem to work with this feature, it just shows in bold letters across the screen "PROGRESSIVE SCAN MODE"! I'm trying to turn it off, but now the Setup menu is not coming up, just the bold words. The DVD is playing though, I can hear it...but picture. Is there a way to turn this feature off?

Re: How do I turn off Progressive scan?

Hi, follow the steps it may help !! Press STOP button. ? If playing a disc, press the STOP button twice so that ?STOP?, appears on the display. Press and hold P.SCAN button on the remote control for over 5 seconds. ? Pressing and holding the button for over 5 seconds will select "Progressive Scan" and "Interlace Scan" alternately. ? When you select P.SCAN, "P.SCAN" will appear on the display. ? To set P.Scan mode for DivX discs, press the P.SCAN button on the remote control for more than 5 seconds with no disc in the unit (?'NO DISC" on the display), then load the DivX disc and play. regards sreejith

Re: How do I turn off Progressive scan?

None of your ideas worked for me, I have a RCA surround sound system model RTD258...there are no buttons on the remote or anywhere on the system itself. I can see that it is in P-scan mode, because it's lit up on the display, but I can't get into the menu long enough to change it....Does anyone have a clue on how I can fix this stupid problem???

Re: How do I turn off Progressive scan?

I have a Sanyo DVD/VCR combo and was playing around. Turned progressive scan on by mistake. Couldn't get back to setup screen. Same situation as above. I went to VCR mode, went into setup and turned off the "OSD". Went back to DVD and was able to get back into setup again to turn off progressive scan. Thank you God for helping me figure this out, before my girlfriend got home and had a hizzy fit. Oh and don't forget to go back into VCR setup and turn the OSD back on. (whatever that is) :)

Just press the stop button on your DVD player for a few seconds. Works like magic.

Read the following :-----
Once the setting for progressive scan output is entered, an image will only be visible on a progressive scan compatible Tv. if youset it in error,you must reset the unit. Pointing the remote at the player, press the STOP key tostop any disc that is playing. Next, press the STOP key again and hold it for 5 seconds before releasing it. The video output will be restored to the standard setting, and a picture will once again be visible on analoge TV

Good day! Try to check the rca jack video input.Replace it with new one if defective. Also check the progressive scan features if activated. If it is activated check your TV if supported by progressive scan features, because some TV is not supported by progressive scan.You can deactivate it by turning off or activate the interlace mode.Press the open/close to open disk tray. And press the numeric keypad 1 for few seconds. Hope its help.

When i try using prgressive scan it comes up error why and how can i get progressive scan to work

In order to use progressive scan you must have a progressive scan compatible tv. Check your users manual to find out if its compatible. If it is it should give instructions to turn on the progressive scan option for tv.

I am stuck in the Progressive Scan Mode on my DVD player & cant get it out of the blue screen. I have tried reseting it & even unplugging the player.

If your TV does not support progressive scan, you won't be able to get out of the blue screen. The only way to solve this issue is to connect the unit to a multistandard TV which has this capability, then in the player's on screen menu, look for anything that would allow you to select either progressive or interlace as its video output (or has progressive on and off feature) - and switch progressive 'off'. This should revert the output back to interlace. Then unplug the combo, reconnect it to your original set, and it should work fine after that.

Not impossible to correct, but a real pain if progressive is selected in a DVD player's output and the TV does not have that feature. Some DVD players have progressive output as a default option in their setup. Reverting it to interlace or turning it off so it matches the TV it is connected to should solve this problem.

I pushed the pscaan button by mistake n now I can hear the movie but no picture

This is probably the 'progressive scan' feature for your DVD player.
If you haven't had any other problems with the player, try pushing the button again (a second time). This feature is likely a 'toggle-on, toggle-off, so a second 'push' should turn-off the progressive scan.
If this doesn't correct it, power the unit off, then power-on again. It it doesn't automatically power-up without the progressive scan, try pushing the pscan button again. Hopefully this will turn-off your undesired progressive scan. Good luck!

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.

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.
