Question about Sony SLV-D300P DVD Player/VCR
I have the SLV-D300P Video hooked up to play DVD only through the S-Cable connection to my TV. I only use it to play DVDs with the audio going through a tuner and separate set of speakers. I was unable to play a rented DVD do to an assumed "parental control setting" problem. I was playing in the DVD set-up menu on the "Screen Set-up" on the Video Out with the S-Video selected and pressed one of the left-right arrow keys. The picture is now distorted horribly, and I can't find a way to unscramble it. I can press the return button to get back to the menu, but it also is scrambled. It looks like the menu screen is blown up by a factor of 5X, and distorted diagonally. I unplugged the power to see if it would reset, but the gross distortion doesn't clear. I can play a DVD and get the audio, but the same gross distortion is displayed.
Any ideas on what I might have done, and how to get back?
Have you tried pressing the progressive button on the front panel of the player?

The unit's software should have a choice to return to factory settings. It sounds like you may have accessed the zoom function of the dvd unit. Try going into there and returning to normal zoom. The return to factory settings may sound drastic but sometimes it is much perferred to trying to run down a problem for hours on end. Good luck.
