DVD sound but no picture...after pushing progressive scan button
I was using the DVD and decided to push the progressive scan button. I got a message that said that the TV was not a progresive scan model. The picture went dark, but I still have sound. The VCR produces good picture and sound. I even change TV's to see if that made a difference. Cables must be hooked up right in order for the VCR to work so well. Any suggestions?

This is probably the 'progressive scan' feature for your DVD player.
If you haven't had any other problems with the player, try pushing the button again (a second time). This feature is likely a 'toggle-on, toggle-off, so a second 'push' should turn-off the progressive scan.
If this doesn't correct it, power the unit off, then power-on again. It it doesn't automatically power-up without the progressive scan, try pushing the pscan button again. Hopefully this will turn-off your undesired progressive scan. Good luck!
Had the same problem.Found it was due to faulty button connection on front panel of
player.There's Progressive Scan button
there that for some reason starts sending signal like it's constantly being
pushed.To fix this, need to open player
and cut wire that's connected to that button (or replace the button if you want
to get fancy) Sounds tough, but it's not that hard.Plus the player is pretty much useless
otherwise, so not much to lose.Best of
I couldnt get the blue ray format of kung fu panda to play in my sony blue ray dvd player. the previews and the menu screen run properly, but when i push play movie, it shuts down the dvd player. can anyone help?
Should be as easy as pushing the pscan button again. You might need to unplug the dvd player for a while till it goes back to factory. The P is for progressive scan and your tv must not support P. Once you get it turned off it will work again. There also might be a button on the remote to turn it off.
