I bought the pioneer in the phils, the TV was bought in Ireland.this might help
To solve "progressive mode" or any other problem on DV-266, just reset all setting to default, as follows;
Using buttons in front panel (not from remote control);
- Switch off your DVD Player.
- Press & hold STOP button, and press STANDBY/ON (power) button.
Good Luck & enjoy your Pioneer again.....

Try changing your cables or checking they are correctly inserted. If that doesn't work, try it in another TV to eliminate your TV input connector. Just a thought, but you haven't accidentally altered any menu settings on the player or TV.
Progressive Scan is a menu option relating to video output of this player. Assuming you have the original DVD remote, this should be easy.
* From the user manual (pages 50-51 of the pdf document):
About progressive scan video Compared to interlace video, progressive scan video effectively doubles the scanning rate of the picture, resulting in a very stable, flicker-free image. Progressive scan video is available only from the component video output.
If you connect a TV that is not compatible with a progressive scan signal and switch the player to progressive, you will not be able to see any picture at all. In this case, switch everything off and reconnect using the supplied video cable (see Easy connections on page 14), then switch back to Interlace. Switch the player to standby then, using the front panel controls, press STANDBY/ON while pressing 'back to Interlace.
Hold these 2 buttons together for about 10-15 seconds or so, but only while the player is in standby mode. *

If the above suggestion does not switch it back to interlace, you will need a TV with progressive scan function to enable you to access the player's on-screen menu and in 'Initial Settings' 'Video Output' 'Component Out' section, select 'Interlace'. and press OK from remote as required.
Either way, it should NOT require a workshop service, and is simple enough to do at consumer level with the right TV type.
TRY USING THE RED AS THE YELLOW AND THE YELLOW AS RED, THIS SHOULD MAKE ONE SIDE OF THE AUDIO NOT WORK AND THE VIDEO WORK. REPEAT WITH THE YELLOW/ WHITE. TRY DIFFERENT CORDS. TRY IT ON A DIFFERENT SYSTEM. YOU MAY HAVE KNOCKED SOMETHING LOOSE INSIDE IT.
hook up to your receiver or ampli? your DV has got dscrete audio channel connections, now check first your receiver or amp if it has got that same discrete connections. but the simpliets connectgion is just uise your right/left channels. color red/white audio out of your DV. then connect to your receiver/amp DV input. or your DV should also have an fiber optical out (single link only to your amp) if it has got an option for optical. then connect your DV video out to your TV or through your receiver if it has got a video input function.
