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?

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.
PROGRESIVE SCAN will only work with an HD TV and it does not work via the scart lead. Select off for it if you have an old TV. If you can't get it to stop coming on by doing what it says to do, then you have an electrical fault on the LG.
PROGRESIVE SCAN itself is a method of getting high quality images on HD TV's via the special sockets at the back of the DVD.
You will have to reset the DVD player in order to undo the progressive scan option. Since you cannot see a menu to do so...
1. Unplug the dvd player from the outlet 2. Press and hold down the STANDBY-ON m button on the front of the Recorder while reconnecting to the power outlet. 3.Release STANDBY-ON m when ' ' appears in the display. All the information stored in the memory (programs, time, TIMER) will be reset (cleared).

This is frustrating but what worked for me:
1. first make sure you are on CD/DVD mode
2. select the 'Setup Menu' button so that the words 'Setup' appear 3. press the 'CH/TRK Stop' button (it is blue on my remote) and hold it down (approx 5 seconds) - if it works, the setup menu will be displayed.
If this does work - write the instructions on a small index card and glue it to the DVD player ;>P

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:
