Aspire Digital AD-N820B DVD-R stuck in Progressive Scan ( PSCAN )

My AD-N820B is stuck in Progressive Scan. I moved it with a DVD in the drawer, the DVD slipped out, and I had to open the case to retrieve it. Since then it is PSCAN and I can get it out. There is no button anywhere to toggle PSCAN and I've tried holding down the Stop button both on the case and the remote. Naturally, I tossed the manual the minute I set it up.

Re: Aspire Digital AD-N820B DVD-R stuck in Progressive...

I just had the same problem with the same model but I was able to figure it out after a while.
From the remote control:
Scroll left or right to the PREFERNCES menu.
Scroll down to the bottom until DEFAULT is highlighted.
HIt the PLAY button in the remote while RESTORE or RESET is highlighted.
The DVD player was reset back to factory settings within 10 seconds.

We see a yellow anouncement that says PSCAN and it splits the image

PSCAN; means Progressive Scan. To get the splitted picture together you have to change the scan system of your tV to progressive scan. Now it runs on Interlace Scan. If your TV has Progressive Scan function; refer to its user manual; set it to progressive scan. An other way is to change the scan system with DVD. Try either. OK.

My memorex combo dvd & vhs player is not working right. can you help me? the vhs player works fine, but the dvd player display's a split screen on the tv with a large yellow box with the word PSCAN....

PSCAN is a short form for Progressive Scan - a line scanning format used for High Definition TV. Standard TVs use Interlaced scanning. On your DVD/VHS player, the VHS is an analogue signal recorded in interlaced mode so is fine for a standard TV. The DVD is a digital signal and cazn be processed for progressive scan output in order to produce a better picture on a High definition TV (or a TV capable of handling progressive scan). If you cannot to your TV via the HD outputs then you should be able to set the DVD player to output interlaced instead of progressive scan.

Stuck in pscan, no book, help

By "pscan", I'll assume you mean progressive scan mode?

disconnect unit from A/C power. Hold in power button, plug unit into wall whilst holding in power button for 10-15 seconds.

If that doesn't reset unit, then simply hold power button in for 30 seconds whilst power is already applied to the unit. That not work?

Toss unit into the garbage.

Dvd player not showing color

you are only having porblem with your color system. if you are using a multi system DVD player then see if it is properly selected to your region. in USA it should be NTSC 3.59, if you're in Europe it should be PAL. if you're using your DVD via a DSP or audio systems, check also the color system of the amplifier, it should be adjusted to your color system.

PSCAN shows up on my tv screen when I try to watch movies. How do I delete this?

The solution to the PSCAN! (half screen cut image) is just as suggested, turn off the progressive scan switch in the back of the DVD player to get the full image and enjoy your movie.
