Can't turn off PSCAN on Magnavox MDVD65 - please help


(i know this isn't in the correct section, but this is the closest product listed to the one i have - sorry!)

My DVD player is stuck in PSCAN mode - i've tried holding stop for 5 seconds and releasing - it didn't work.

Are there any other ways to reset the DVD player?

Please help,

Need instructions to set code for tv

  • 1 Download or view the user's manual from the Magnavox website (see Resources). You will need the list of codes included in the manual. The website will direct you to the closest remote control manual available similar to the REM 350 Universal Remote. This manual is compatible with the REM 350 Universal Remote.

  • 2

    Press and hold the "Code Search" button until the red indicator light stays on. Release the "Code Search" button.

  • 3

    Press and release the "Mode" button for the product you wish to program (TV, VCR, DVD or satellite). The red indicator light will blink, then stay lit.

  • 4

    Enter the four-digit code from the code tables listed in the user's manual. You can also search for the code online at the Philips Universal Code Finder page (see Resources). You might have to try several or all codes listed in the manual until you find the correct one. After a valid code entry, the red indicator will turn off. With an invalid code, the red indicator flashes.

  • 5

    Press the "Channel Up" button with your device on (TV, DVD, VCR, or satellite). If the device responds, you have completed the programming. Once are certain you have found the valid code, make a note of it somewhere so you will not have to search for the code again.

    I'm not sure what is model number of your VCR-DVD combo so providing you general info to turn off pscan.
    Put disc in player, press play to have distorted picture then press stop button to stop playback.
    Now press and hold Stop button on unit for 6 seconds that will turn off pscan mode.
    Or let me know exact model number of your player to find out solution.

    Memorex dvd player pscan split screen

    I work for Memorex technical support. Our customer service phone number is 1-800-919-3647.

    On the back of your player you should see a switch that can slide back and forth that's marked PSCAN. Slide the switch into the opposite position from which it's in now. The should solve your problem.

    If you feel this solution doesn't deserve a good rating, please let me know why so that I may better assist you. If there is anything more I can do to help, I will!

    Progressive Scan Problem (works sometimes)

    I had the same problem with the picture being unstable or breaking into left and right sides. I finally purchased Monster cable component video cables and all the problems went away. I can change resolution just as the product spec says. I can choose 480i or 480P or 720P or 1080i, I would try 1080P but I don't have any box capable of that resolution but I'm sure it would work.
