Whenever I try to watch a DVD the screen splits and a message reads "PSCAN"

You need to do one of two things:
1) Look at the back of the DVD player for a switch that is labeled with " PROGRESSIVE SCAN', you need to set it to OFF (since you are using Composite Video jack (Yellow RCA jack) output of the DVD to feed your TV, but the DVD player is set to PROGRESSIVE scan mode, taht is why you are seeing "PSCAN).

2) Use the component video input/output instead by using 5-wire cable set (Red, Blue, Green for video, and White and RED for audio).

I cannot get the progressive scan off. I have a zenith xbs448 vcr/cd combo

Hi -

The instructions for switching progressive scan off have been posted on FixYa numerous times, but I'll save you searching for them and post them again . . .

1. Remove any disc from the unit and close the disc tray.
2. Wait for the DISC message to appear on the display
3. Hold the STOP button on the front of the player for at least 5 seconds then release.

PSCAN should disappear from the display on the front of the player and the video output should return to the standard interlace setting

If you are still unable to switch PSCAN off, please post back for further assistance.

When i load a DVD, I get a split screen and a large PSCAN!

Probably fix it with the remote. Look up progressive scan in your manual, and turn it off.

Check you owners manual for the p-scan function and turn it off. If this does not work then contact customer service and ask for technical help on how to fix your problem. Hope this helps you with your problem.

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.
