Rolling Screen on GPX D1816

Upon "power on" the picture rolls vertically just like an old TV except of course there is no "vertical Hold" knob!

What buttons and sequence on the remote control will fix this problem?

Thanks in advance--Bill

Press the n/p button on the original remote control that came with the unit. It's located between the stop and rewind buttons.

Re: Rolling Screen on GPX D1816

This is synching problem. I did not see any mention of this in the manual or an GPX's site. What I did discover is that many people have problems 2-3 months of use. This tells me that the components are so cheap that they are degrading because of heat after a short while.

My experience with inexpensive DVD players is this: they will not play a lot of DVD because they don't read the Region right. They have synching problems, etc.

I would bring the unit back and get a refund. It's worth it to spend a few more bucks and get a better. Stick w your name brand like Pioneer, Phillips, etc.

Sorry, I know this is not what you want to hear.

Yeah I have a Sylvania model # SP A2751 106. It is a old **** tube tv. When I go to hook up the the dvd player and switch it to vcr/aux the picture rolls in bars upwards. Its not the dvd player tried it on...

There should be a preset resistor on circuit board of old CRT based TVs, designated as vertical rolling adjust. Try to locate it and adjust a little till rolling stops, while playing the DVD. The set will be live during this process, so be careful. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock. Instead, contact any experienced service technician, or the nearest service center.

The screen is rolling horizontal and verticle

I had this problem once when I set something too heavy on the top of the unit. Pressing the n/p button on the remote worked.

Cyberhome 402 DVD "rolls"

I think I had switched to the PAL format by mistake. Fixed the problem by buying a new DVD player, was cheaper than the factory fix.

Dark rolling up image

More info (brand/model) might help with specific answer. what type connection your using for video. also how long have you had it. but... my guess is youve got something hooked up wrong. might be a switch to go from Composite (red/green/blue) three cable video to 1 cable rca or s-video or youve got the yellow video cable in one of the composite jacks.

please rate.

Hooking up dvd player

Your cables are coded red(right audio), white(left audio) and yellow(video). The cable inputs on the dvd player and tv are likewise coded. Just connect color to like color. In setup, do not
change NTSC! If you should go to PAL you'll never get out of setup and all you'll have is screen roll, as though the vertical hold gave out.

The picture on the VCR keeps rolling. How do I remedy this? I have a Sylvania cca-132a2 model.

i know this may seem old-school, but try turning the vertical hold knob. it used to solve all vcr problems with rolling picture.

Picture keeps rolling

The picture rolling is simply because the PAL decoder can't lock up to the 60Hz vertical sync pulses, even if your DVD player is set to NTSC-PAL conversion and there is no vertical hold adjustment (either external or internal) on this model set to achieve this. There is a possible alternative only if your DVD player has RGB output (not component). The JVC for example has direct RGB drive capability via the SCART input on the back panel. If you get a suitable lead you could try getting a picture this way as it bypasses the decoding and sync sep circuits in the PAL decoder chip.
