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?

I pushed the pscaan button by mistake n now I can hear the movie but no picture

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 luck.

Pushed the pscan button by mistake

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.

No video output from rca jack or svideo

The problem is with the p.scan button. It seems if its pressed the video goes off. You need to keep it pushed until you see a message for "progressive scan".

No Picture

Pull the AC power out, wait 30 seconds and plug it back in. Sometimes pushing the on and off button isn't enough.
