Optical probem most likely..This situation is usually caused by a lack of information from the optical p/u assembly. Could be as simple as dirt, or it's time for a new drive..accordiaman

I have a Samsung DVD-v5650 which has always worked great. A couple of days ago, it suddenly stopped playing dvd's. We purchased a new dvd and it will start to play, then it will get choppy and show...


That sounds like a classic case of DVD laser and spindle motor failure (traverse unit). The squares you mention are pixels, the picture pixelates and breaks up, then freezes (caused by voltage changes in the laser and the motor speed). Being as this is not a DVD recorder, it is probably not economical to repair. You can try carefully cleaning the laser assembly (tips on how to do this may be found elsewhere on FixYa or similar forums) and/or spindle hub. If that does not solve the issue, sadly, you would be reduced to just the VCR part (or you could purchase a new player since the cost of such would be cheaper than repairs to this - assuming parts were available).

Not the best news, but you can try the simple in-home cleaning of the unit first before taking any further action.

My memorex combo dvd & vhs player is not working right. can you help me? the vhs player works fine, but the dvd player display's a split screen on the tv with a large yellow box with the word PSCAN....


PSCAN is a short form for Progressive Scan - a line scanning format used for High Definition TV. Standard TVs use Interlaced scanning. On your DVD/VHS player, the VHS is an analogue signal recorded in interlaced mode so is fine for a standard TV. The DVD is a digital signal and cazn be processed for progressive scan output in order to produce a better picture on a High definition TV (or a TV capable of handling progressive scan). If you cannot to your TV via the HD outputs then you should be able to set the DVD player to output interlaced instead of progressive scan.

DVD plays with green stripe and pixelation


try turning off / on progressive scan. You could also change the Scanlines in the settings / display menu until u find one that clears up the issue.

Its more than likely a settings issue.

DVR making bad DVDs


Three suggestions:
1) take it apart and clean the laser and the spindle 'hub' that the DVD rests on
OR
2) get a 'cleaner' disk that will 'whisk' any dust from the laser diode.
OR as a final suggestion
3) replace the DVD recorder with another. Plain old EIDE parallel interface units fit fine.
This is a very friendly machine in that it will accept PC compatible hard disks and DVDR drives.

DVD Player Stuck In Progressive Scan Mode


A simple solution that works with electronic items many times, so give it a try. Turn Off your player, un-plug the electrical supply, wait about 2 minutes then re-connect the electricity and turn on the player. Many times this will force the machine to reset itself. This technique can be used for ALL electroinc devices.

DVD/VCR combo player won't work


I had a similar problem and corrected it with a solution found on another site. Try hitting the I/P button on the remote which controls whether "Interlaced" or "Progressive Scan" is used to display the image on the TV. Mine worked when "Interlaced" was used. but no picture was displayed when "Progressive Scan" was used. The I/P button toggles between the two settings.

Picture problems


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.
