Question about Protron PDV-288 7" LCD Portable DVD Player

1 Answer

My screen is all blue but I can hear the DVD playing.

Even when the player is first turned on, all I get is a blue screen. I have only used the DVD player a few times but have had it for a while.

    Yes if you can find a cable for it, typically the unit has (2) compression terminations, one on either end. Use care when undoing those keepers as they are Fragile!...accordianman

I was playing with settings on my Zenith xbv342 and set the menu to progressive scan. I now have a blue screen with the words "progressive scan mode" I cannot get a picture and it is stuck in this m


Progressive scan mode is used by DVD players to artificially scale standard resolution DVDs to HD resolution, usually 720i. Is your set capable of receiving HD resolution? If not, that is probably why you are getting the blue screen.

Need to turn OFF progressive scan on Sony DVD DVP-NS57P


With the remote: While in STOP mode, press the DISPLAY button. Use up/down buttons to select SETUP. Press Enter. Use up/down buttons to select CUSTOM.Press Enter. Use up/down buttons to select SCREEN SETUP. Press Enter. Use up/down buttons to select PROGRESSIVE. Press Enter. The manual is a bit indistinct after this, but I think the prompts will direct you. Just turn Progressive OFF.

Insignia NS-8PDVD blank screen...


There is a switch on the side of the DVD player that reads "in / out".  Switch it to out and you should get the blue screen back.  It's a strange set up but this is how it works.

DVD player isn't showing anything


do you hear movement inside like disc rotating, if so then the switch that closest lid is damaged. This is when you fold dvd down it hits this switch to turn monitor off. It could be damaged. If there is no noise or movement then power supply has damaged or batt dead and no power goes to it from power cord.
