Magnavox mrv640-accidentally turned on progressive scan

I was trying to use my dvd player/recorder to run video cables into it and into an older tv via a cable wire. I turned on the progressive scan by accident and now i can't even see the menu to turn it off. I searched for solutions but only found ways to fix some kind of magnavox dvd/vcr compound unit. I need accurate directions of what buttons I need to push to turn it off without being able to see what I am doing.

Had exactly the same problem. You need to reset the DVD recorder to it's default setting. The default is "interlaced".

From the users manual.........

Switching the DVD Recorder
1
Disconnect the recorder's power cord.
2 Hold down the FF button (arrow pointing left) the front of the DVD Recorder while
reconnecting the power cord. 'PRO' (progressive scan) will appear
on the display.
3 If you want to switch back, repeat steps 1 and 2 . 'PRO'
(progressive scan) will disappear from the display. The DVD
Recorder is switched to 'Interlaced.'

The manual is at:

See page 12


It worked for me.

Barb..be sure you run a TV signal through the VCR first. And then a coaxial from the VCR to the TV. This is the easiest solution for now. And set the vcr to tv/video {channel your movie is on}hit record and hit tv/video and watch your tv for another movie!

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.

Audio but no video cable/sat input or patch cables from DVD playe


Make sure the yellow [video] cable is in its proper home on the tv and sat box. You should be working with 3 cables and be sure to press the correct input with the remote or on the tv itself.

Bizzare Color Problem


I normally find that the DVD is either in the progressive scan or interlaced mode. If the DVD is in analog inputs (video inputs), then, it should be in the interlaced mode. If the DVD is in the component input, then, it should be set to the progresive mode. On older DVDs, the switch to turn it to the proper mode is on the back or bottom of the DVD. Newer units are on the remote that says progressive or on the menu of the DVD. The owners manual should have instructions on how to change it.

Component Video inputs do not work


I started back in the day of tubes. A family would have one set and it would be a 19" black and white. There are different resolutions now. The components probably do work, but, they don't pass the 480i signal. The satelite converter's analog signal needs to be set to 480p and the DVD needs to be set to progressive if it does have that setting. If the DVD is not a progressive scan DVD, then, the only inputs that it will show on is the analog signal. Some of the dish converters have a switch on the face for changing the resolution. If yours doesn't then put it in an analog source and go to the menu and change it there. Then move it to the component input. Hope this helps.
