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?
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"
? 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.
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???
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) :)

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.
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.
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.
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!
When your player is connected thru HDMI cable it should automatically detect what your TV's display is capable of. I am assuming that you have the DVD player connected to a HD television. There should be a progressive scan button on the front of the player. But I don't think the button will work when it is connected to HDMI. How do you have the player connected? Is it directly to the TV or does it go thru a switch or a reciever then to the TV? If it is connected this way then that can be the problem. There is a signal that needs to make it to the TV and these devices can block the signal. So verify that it is connected directly to the TV and that the HDMI cable is working. If that is ok then connect another connection to the TV along with the HDMI cable also hooked up. Then change your TV's input selection to that connection. You should be able to get to the dvd menu and set the HDMI output from auto to a format that your TV will accept. Then go back to the HDMI input and see if you have a picture. Let me know if that helps.
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

ProScan capability), to activate TV

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 SCAN OFF
Select this to disable Progressive scan
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.
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.
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.
