How do you turn off the progressive scan

We finally figured out that the progressive scan has been activated on our DVR100. Apparently our TV doesn't support the progressive scan, so the picture is blank. Does anyone know how to turn it off or reset the machine? The User's Manual is long gone!!

Re: How do you turn off the progressive scan

My remote was different from the one that Trackcar 2365 posted so I came up with this. This will take off the PRO symbol without resetting all of your other settings.

Press DOWN arrow once
Press RIGHT arrow three times
Press SETUP once
You should see the Menu screen. At the point you should use the LEFT arrow key to get back to the main system. The system will be in INTERLACED mode from that point.

Re: How do you turn off the progressive scan

I own this model and do have the manual; however, standard AV and S-Video connections do not transfer progressive scan video images. If you hookup a progressive scan output to a non-progressive scan TV input, you will not get an image, so it is probably the way you have your machine connected to your TV that is the problem. If you are trying to watch regular TV through your machine, you will probably need to use a standard Coaxial Cable. I hope this helps.

Good day! Try to check the rca jack video input.Replace it with new one if defective. Also check the progressive scan features if activated. If it is activated check your TV if supported by progressive scan features, because some TV is not supported by progressive scan.You can deactivate it by turning off or activate the interlace mode.Press the open/close to open disk tray. And press the numeric keypad 1 for few seconds. Hope its help.

When i try using prgressive scan it comes up error why and how can i get progressive scan to work

In order to use progressive scan you must have a progressive scan compatible tv. Check your users manual to find out if its compatible. If it is it should give instructions to turn on the progressive scan option for tv.

Picture is black and white

If you have it connected to the 'antenna input' on your TV, change the channel up or down, and then back to 3/4 as appropriate. Sometimes the signal from the machine does not match exactly what the TV is looking for, but the TV will figure it out after you change the channel up or down. The AFC (automatic frequency control) will then try to re-tune the channel.
If you have it connected using the composite, and r/w audio, then you likely have a problem inside the DVR.

Sound but no picture

Apparently your TV doesn't support the progressive mode (480p). You should be able to turn it off by pressing the pause button on the recorder for about 5 seconds, untill it turns off I guess. Hope it works
