We see a yellow anouncement that says PSCAN and it splits the image

PSCAN; means Progressive Scan. To get the splitted picture together you have to change the scan system of your tV to progressive scan. Now it runs on Interlace Scan. If your TV has Progressive Scan function; refer to its user manual; set it to progressive scan. An other way is to change the scan system with DVD. Try either. OK.

The screen is split ! PSCAN

Take a look at the back of the dvd player there should be a switch that says Progressive scan on/off. Switch it to off. Problem solved !!!

Split screen with pscan warning on

I had the exact same problem and I consulted the manual. All you have to do is turn the PSCAN swtich off. It is located on the back of the dvd player. Then turn the dvd player back on and your problem should be fixed.

Stuck on P-Scan


Most DVD players has a P-Scan on/off button in the remote control. On the other hand, Memorex in some of its models have the P Scan switch at the rear of the unit. It is a slide switch.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
