Question about Philips Magnavox MWR10D6 DVD Recorder
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?

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.
