On the front of the DVD player push STOP and hold it for 5 seconds, remove your finger and then press STOP again,
I never tried that, I always just unplug the unit and leave it unplugged for at least an hour, When it is plugged in after all of the voltages drain out of the circuits, it resets itself to factory settings,

Toshiba SD-V55HT stuck in Progressive scan mode.


Hello

Progressive Scan Video provides the highest resolution
pictures with less flicker and line structure

If you are using the COMPONENT/PROGRESSIVE

SCAN VIDEO OUT jacks, but are connecting the

DVD/VCR Receiver to a standard (analog) television,
set Progressive Scan to Off

If you are using the Component Video jacks for

connection to a TV or monitor that is compatible with a
progressive scan signal, set Progressive Scan to On.
To ON and OFF this function, Press "Setup" to display the setup screen.
Surf through, and hilight "Progressive scan" and press "Ok or Enter"
Here you can set this function ON or OFF. If you wnat to get it OFF, select OFF and press Enter.
OK.

My memorex combo dvd & vhs player is not working right. can you help me? the vhs player works fine, but the dvd player display's a split screen on the tv with a large yellow box with the word PSCAN....


PSCAN is a short form for Progressive Scan - a line scanning format used for High Definition TV. Standard TVs use Interlaced scanning. On your DVD/VHS player, the VHS is an analogue signal recorded in interlaced mode so is fine for a standard TV. The DVD is a digital signal and cazn be processed for progressive scan output in order to produce a better picture on a High definition TV (or a TV capable of handling progressive scan). If you cannot to your TV via the HD outputs then you should be able to set the DVD player to output interlaced instead of progressive scan.

I accidentally pressed progressive scan on my DV 366 player and my TV screen went blank. I can listen to music now by there is no picture on the TV screen. How do I correct it?


You will have to press the progressive scan button again, but most of the time you will have to remove any discs that are in the unit first, before you press the buton again

I have a HD TV with cable and a go video DVD/VHS player hooked up. I went to change the time and accidentally changed the setting on the DVD player from auto scan (I think) from off to on and now when I...


It sounds like you may have enabled the progressive scan output on your DVD-VHS combo. This is a correct setting if your TV support it. However most DVD players that support progressive scan will not support an interlaced signal and a progressive signal at the same time.

It would appear that you are using a composite type cable (3 RCA ends. 1 for video and 2 for audio) for this hook up. This means you have two choices.

#1 Look in the manual for the unit for the FACTORY Reset option. Its usually a combination of plugging the unit in while holding the power button or something similar to that. Without a model # I can't help any further with this option.

#2 Use a component video cable (3 RCA red/green/blue) to plug your DVD/VHS player into a compatible input on your HD TV. Your TV will pick up the progressive scan output from the unit and give you back your on screen display. At this point you can go back into the menu and disable progressive scan. And now just reverse the process to plug the DVD player back in using the composite cable.

It should be noted that if you have a progressive scan TV which HD TV's support you will get a better picture if you use the Component video cables instead of switching back to the composite cable. If you decide to use the component cables you will still need to run audio cables though.

Best of luck.

Turned progressive scan on, can i turn it off without being able


Try these methods for resetting the scan on your dvd."To reset the VIDEO OUTPUT, turn Off the player, turn back On, open the disc tray and press and hold the Stop button on the player for 10 seconds to reset the scan mode." The Reset procedure doesn't seem to work on all versions but you can sometimes get a usable B&W picture allowing you to get to the menu and change the settings by connecting the composite video input of your display to the Red Pr/Cr or Green Y component output jacks on the rear of the cabinet.
You can also go into the Menu and set it blind with the following key presses on the Remote:
1. With the unit Stopped, press Setup.
2. Press Enter.
3. Press the Down Arrow 3 times.
4. Press the Right Arrow Once.
5. Press Enter. Hope this helps you with your problem

If you are using analog video output to connect to your tv set and accidentally selected progressive scan from the setup menu you will loose the analog signal output.
Turn the unit on with no dvd inside and after the " no disc" message press stop (on the front pannel button) holding it for about 5 seconds. It will restore the original progressive scan configuration (value= no).

Showing red image


Make sure red is matched up to red, green to green, and blue to blue first. Then, try a different set of YPbPr (component) cables if you have a set available. If it still shows up red, then read this:
If you are using a Progressive Scan TV
(TV must indicate Progressive Scan or
ProScan capability), to activate TV
Progressive Scan, please refer to your TV
user manual. For DVD system Progressive
Scan function, see page 28.
Helpful Hint:
– If your TV does not support Progressive
Scan, you will not be ab le to view the picture.
Press and hold OPEN/CLOSE button and
press ‘1’ to deactivate progressive scan.

Progressive Scan - turning on/off
To select this item, you must set “Video
Output” to Y PR PB and ensure that your
TV has progressive scan (See page 11.)
Follow the steps of “Using the Setup
Menu” and select :
> PROGRESSIVE
OFF
ON
PROGRESSIVE SCAN OFF
TV SHAPE
TV SYSTEM
VIDEO OUT
PROGRESSIVE
SCR SAVER
SMART POWER
OFF
Select this to disable Progressive scan
function.
ON

These are pp. 11 and 28 of your owner's manual for the HTS

If these methods still fail, try turning your TV's progressive scan off or on.

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.
