DVD recorder: Changed the settings, now

Hello,
I have a huge problem, I changed the settings to my dvd recorder and now I get a black screen on the TV (a Samsung 40" LCD HD) that says "no signal". The dvd recorder model isn't exactly the one chosen, it was the closest model to mine (MAGNAVOX MDVDRW 160GB) it has a 160gb hard drive, not a combo unit.
As a result, I cannot get the mode screen at all, so I can't change the settings back.
The setting I changed was in the video preferences settings. I changed from "INTERLACED" to "PROGRESSIVE SCAN" mode. The manual states -
"If you have a standard tv, you will need to set the dvd recorder to INTERLACED mode. If your tv supports progressive scan, make sure the dvd recorder is connected to the tv using a component video cable (it is) and set to PROGRESSIVE mode. Please refer to the progressive scan setting of your tv instructions manual."
I cannot find anything in the tv insructions manual referring to progressive scan and I'm unable to change the setting back to interlaced, where the dvd recorder worked fine.
I live in Australia and both items were purchased in Aust (I'm not sure if this will make a difference to you).
I am desperate to have my dvd operational again, any advise will be very, very appreciated.
Can you PLEASE HELP?

Regards, Nikki

    Hi, i have the same problem with the same recorder also and can not get the picture back up either. I tried hitting the play button for 7 seconds and nothing! And with no picture i can not get back into the settings to see what i am changing. Any help would be great.

Step 5. press OK. (progressive scan)
Step 6. press OK, again.
Step 7. press down arrow once. (progressive scan off)

You have to take the dvd recorder off  progressive mode. You need to set it up with and press play on the unit and then press and hold it for 7 seconds. That will might take it off of progessive. Otherwise to show the picture you will have to use progressive cables. The progressive cables are red green blue and a red and white audio cable and then put it on your component video channel. Those are both solutions.

This does not seem to be a power supply issue but rather an issue with the backlight inverter board. When the screen goes black, take a flash light and focus it on the screen from a close distance and several angles. See if you notice a very faint image. Try changing the channels to make it more noticeable. Try it and let me know

Dude, better check your cable and also your TV's power management settings. This might also happen due a issue with the HDMI output of the satellite box.

Samsung le40a lcd - picture quality


Hi - I have some suggestions. The following factors effect picture quality:
1. Source (because LCD TVs have much higher picture quality than traditional CRT "Tube" TVs, the worse your source material, the worse it looks on a LCD TV).
DVD and Sky/Digital TV should look excellent on this TV when connected with a good quality Scart lead (nothing too expensive, but a Oxygen Free Copper Gold lead may help) directly into one of the TV's Scart inputs (avoid using "switching" boxes for multiple equipment).
Also, bear in mind that this is a HUGE screen (40 inches I think) and will REALLY show up bad source material.
The best advice I can give is, if you have HD-ready equipment use HDMI connections for everything (ideally with an HD-uplscaling DVD player which will "improve" the quality of standard DVDs on the TV - I recommend models by Philips) and check that you are in "Movie" or "Cinema" mode on the TV.
Make sure that all of your equipment, like your Sky digibox, is set to 16:9 mode (not 4:3) aswell to preserve the true widescreen aspect ratio.
Hope that helps!

Samsung LCD TV Image Retention...I Think


I have not noticed that with my set, Sony Bravia 2007 1080I.

Uh, I have a bigger problem though...

I had just paused my live tv for about 40 minutes on abaseball game and now I have green burn in.
I'm in the middle of searching the net for solutions. I have tried:

pure white screen for 30 minutes (no change)
"fuzz" for 1 hour (no change)
turn TV off for 12 hours (no change)
I'll now try to power down fully for 12 hours and see what happens.
