My mother-in-law sent me her unit with the same problem. The problem i had was you couldn't really read anything on the screen in the setup menu. I finally got lucky and got in the right menu and set everything to default settings and it went right back. Here are the steps to reset it without reading it. 
1. remove all tapes and discs
2 if your unit scans for channels when you turn it on press return once
3.if it doesnt go to channel scanning you should have a blank screen
4.press the functions button once
5.press down twice
6.press the enter button
7.press the enter button again
8.press down once
9.press right once
10.press down 4 times
11.press enter once
12.press up once
13.press enter once and the double image should be gone
14. press the functions button twice to exit

hope this works for you

    Oh my gosh I don't believe you fixed this - you are a genius, THANK YOU! How on earth you managed to figure that out without being able to actually see the menu I will never know, but I am in awe and extremely grateful!!!

Try holding the stop button and the DVD dubbing button at the same time and waiting about 3 seconds. I had to do this twice, but it solved my problem.

    I used this and it seemed like it unstuck something, but I still had a problem, then I used Solution 2 below (indy5155) and it is totally fixed!

Dvd is playing movies in black and white


Hi
use red/white/Yellow cables to connect to a loose hard diskon which I keep films, TV-serials and talking books. The colour is fine.

But I connect the DVD to the TV with a scart cable.

Hope you get your colour

1. Verify connections are color coded.

2. If they are correct, take out movie, press Play/Stop at same time on the front of the unit (not remote) to reset any settings that may have been changed.

Cant get color picture when playing DVD's


I too had the same problem. On the Vzio there are AV plug ins on the left side (not the back, but the left side). Use these jacks when connecting to the DVD player and choose the AV button on the TV remote. Viola!

Black Bars on all blu ray movies


Hi icmjrtdr,

Having black bars displayed when watching a Blu-Ray disc is a common occurrence, even with a widescreen television.

You may have heard or seen aspect ratios of 4:3 or 16:9. 4:3 is the ratio of a traditional television that is nearly square. 16:9 is the ratio of most widescreen televisions currently marketed. The reason that even with a 16:9 television Blu-Ray discs are displaying black bars is that many of these discs contain footage that has not been reformatted for television. The screen in a movie theater is even wider than 16:9, and rather than trim the ends, most Blu-Ray discs maintain the entire picture.

Depending on the options available in your particular television, you may be able to find a zoom setting that trims the ends and removes the black bars. It is up to you if you would rather see black bars with the entire picture or lose a small amount of the picture on each side for a full-screen experience.

Hope this helps,
Jason,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

If you are using the s-video jack to connect the DVD to the TV, the jack could be loose or the wire could be bad. The s-video cable has 2 signals, the black-and-white (luminance) and the color (chroma). If the chroma signal is not getting through, the picture will be in black and white.
