Question about GoVideo VR3845 DVD Recorder/VCR
I've had this unit for a while but haven't used it much. Yesterday I was looking at the menu settings and (don't know why I did this) tried changing the dvd scan mode from interlaced to progressive. I'm not really familiar with the difference, and was just curious. Immediately the screen became scrambled and since then I only get a completely scrambled screen when the dvd mode is on, whether or not I am trying to play a dvd. Therefore I cannot see the menu to try to change it back to interlaced (assuming that's what I need to do). I really don't understand the difference or why the progressive mode isn't appropriate, but only want to be able to use my dvd player again. I cannot find anything in the manual about changing the settings except through the onscreen menu, which I currently can't see to use! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I JUST CAME ON THIS SITE A HALF HOUR AGO.. IT IS 5:56 AM AND I HAVE BEEN WRESTLING WITH MY GO VIDEO ALL NIGHT LONG. GOOD THING I'M RETIRED. THAT BEING SAID, I READ IN THE MANUEL THAT YOU CAN RESET YOUR MACHINE TO THE FACTORY SETTINGS WHICH SHOULD DO THE TRICK.
1. PRESS AND HOLD THE POWER BUTTON FOR AT LAST FIVE SECONDS. THIS WILL
FORCE THE UNT TO POWER OFF.
2. PRESS THE POWER BUTTON AGAIN TO TURN THE UNIT BACK.ON.
3. UNPLUG THE POWER CORD AND WAIT AT LEAST FIVE SECONDS AND PLUG IT BACK IN. AGAIN. HOPEFULLY THIS WILL WORK. I WISH MY PROBLEM WAS SO EASY. LET KNOW.
