Open Question

Double image of show on screen

Hello,

We're watching a DVD on the progressive scan DVD player, and our TV screen is showing a split screen that has the same show playing on each side and in the middle is a yellow emblem that says PSCAN!

How can I get a "normal" screen?

With thanks,
Mark

I found the manual for this dvd player online. There is a switch on the back of the player. PSCAN is Progressive Scan. Some TV's are not compatible with this function so the switch must be turned off. This worked and I was watching a dvd last night!

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


Hello
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.

I have a dvp 3960/37 player I am trying to hookup to a Sony KV 32fs120 TV using YPrPb as a component. The Sony manual says the DVP must be Setup before connecting. The Phillips manual says to use the TV's...


If you are using the component output from the dvd player (3 wire video) progressive scan connect corresponding cable to tv . Besure to match colors. If you are getting a black and white double image you need to set the output of the dvd player to progressive scan. See owners manual for dvd player to set this. The yelow color jack on the tv is composite video and is not compatible with the 3 wire video .

I'm not getting any color pictures in my home theater system


Well, assuming were talking about a dvd player with dvd's,you dont specify what type of cables you are using to conect it to your tv, it appears that it has something to do with Progressive Scan been turned on. Progressive Scan is a feature built in your dvd player, wich by using it, it would give you a better picture//resolution on your tv, you need to use Component or HDMI cables to hook up the dvd to your tv if you want this settings, but if you are using composite RCA cables (Red,White & Yellow) and the Progressive funtion is turned on by accident, it may give you a split screen, black & white, or no picture problems. Also if you are using Component (Blue, Green & Red) cables, if one of them is unplug, the picture can be out of colors, or no picture. Check this things, if not, write back with more details about your set up.

Thanks...

Split screen picture


Your DVD player is set to the 480p (progressive) scan mode. Place it back to the 480i (interlaced) mode and it should work normal.

PSCAN shows up on my tv screen when I try to watch movies. How do I delete this?


The solution to the PSCAN! (half screen cut image) is just as suggested, turn off the progressive scan switch in the back of the DVD player to get the full image and enjoy your movie.

Dvd player


It could be that the DVD player is set to an improper scan setting (Interlaced/Progressive)

If the TV does not do Progressive scan it can sometime sshow up as jumpy, or not show a picture at all. See if there is any mention in your manual about this setting and change it back and forth just to eliminate this as an issue.

Video Issue


It sounds like you have the "progressive scan" mode enabled. This changes the order that the scan lines (each horizontal line) is sent to your TV. When this setting doesn't match what your TV expects, you get this effect.

Could be that some combination of the progressive scan and the line input is confusing your system. Sometimes the line doubler on the TV set causes this when recieving a 480p input. If this effect doesn't reproduce on another set, then there you have it. Try turning progressive scan off, or change between the analog(yellow) video, the component(RGB), and the S video(fat one with pins). Good luck
