My DVD Player is stuck in profressive scan mode and I can't get it to the menu to change it. Anytime I put a disc in and turn it on, the screen goes blue and says progressive scan mode. It won't let me do anything. Does anyone have any solutions?

How can I get ride of the pscan split screen view on my memerex vcr-dvd player without the remote control and no manual

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.

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.

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!
