my sony dvd vcr combo has a progressive scan flashing light when plugged in. i put a vcr in and now it's stuck. none of the buttons seem to be working. it is making a clicking sound inside on machine. how can i get this thing to work again?
THIS IS COVERED IN THE MANUAL. I DID THE SAME THING A YEAR AGO AND RESET IT BY FOLLOWING THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE MANUAL. DON'T HAVE IT HANDY AT THE MOMENT BUT YOU CAN FINDI IT ONLINE. KEEP IN MIND THAT THE PROGRESSIVE MODE ONLY WORKS WHEN YOU HAVE IT CONNECTED VIA PROGRESSIVE SCAN.
With NO DISK in the DVD player PRESS PLAY, (display will say "no disk" or something similar) then PRESS STOP AND HOLD FOR 5-10 SECS.
Our DVD was stuck on Progressive Scan Mode for over 1 year, this fixed it. I had tried the press stop, press stop and hold while playing a movie, but not while there was no disk.
Try it & Good Luck!!!!!!!!
If you set progressive scant On by accident,you must reset the unit.
Remove any disc from the unit and close the disc tray. See that "disc" is displayed on the display window. Now press STOP and hold it for more than 5 seconds before releasing it. The video output will be restored to the standard setting and picture will once again be visible on a conventional analog TV or monitor.
You need to be sure to remove the discs from the disc changer and close the disc changer. Make sure that your TV is on the Blue Screen and it should say " Progressive Scan Mode"
Press and hold the stop button on the unit....not the remote for 5 seconds or more and it should reset. However, if your TV is a Progressive Scan compatible TV, you may need to refer to the user guide for the TV as well....Many newer TVs Use a Progressive Scan Setup, but this solution should still work for you. Make sure all discs are removed FIRST!!!
Scrolling/black-and-white/"out of tracking" display on a DVD player is generally caused by the DVD player being switched into Progressive Scan mode on a TV not capable of viewing that content. Scan the remote for a button labeled Progressive, I/P, P.Scan, or anything similar. Scan the user manual for information on resetting this also. If the manual and remote come up dry, call Protron and see if there's a key combo you can hold to reset that. Often, holding Play for 5-10 seconds will reset to standard (Interlaced) mode, or holding Stop while turning the unit on. Sometimes, holding Display on the remote for a few seconds will also switch this setting. Good luck.
