Question about Insignia NS-DVDR1 DVD Recorder
When playing a DVD in my SD-K530SU, I accidentally set the setting to "Progressive Scan". Now when I play a movie out of the DVD player component, the picture on my video-component output displays a blue screen with white text that reads "progressive scan mode".
How can I reset this? Since I don't have a progressive scan television to set it back to the default.
Once the setting for Progressive Scan output is entered,
an image will only be visible on a Progressive Scan compatible
TV or monitor. If you set Progressive Scan to On in
error, you must reset the unit. Pointing the remote at the
player, press the STOP (x) button to stop any disc that is
playing. Next, press the STOP (x) button again and hold it
for five seconds before releasing it. The video output will
be restored to the standard setting, and a picture will once
again be visible on a conventional analog TV or monitor.

Sure that's easy, I read this in the manual:
(Page 18 - Progressive Scan Section)
All you have to do is:
1. Remove the disc in the DVD/VCR.
2. Press and hold the STOP button for 5 seconds before releasing it. (Note that this is the stop button which is physically on the player.)
And that should pull you out of Progressive Scan Mode.

I have a Samsung DVD-VR357, and the only way I was able to solve the problem of turning off Progressive Scan was to do a reset. For this model, that involved simultaneously holding down the Rewind and the Fast Forward buttons for 15 seconds. (You must do this on the unit itself, and not the remote.) This returns all the factory defaults, and solves this problem. Other Samsung models use slightly different procedures. They can be found at this link:

Yes - this worked for my GoldStar VCR/DVD: I held down the stop button (on the VCR side of the unit - Not the remote control button) for 5 seconds, and it reset the "Progressive Scan Mode" nuisance.
Good advice - Thank You !!!!!
It worked for me.

Note that you have to hold the Stop button which is physically on the player. (Not the On/Off - Make sure you hold the Stop button)
