TruTech DVD player on-screen menu not visible, but needs to be adjusted

I recently bought a TruTech DVD player (Model 008 06 0950). It's a $30. machine, made in Feb., 2008.

Apparently, I touched the wrong button which seems to have enterred a system of menus in which the on-screen display was changed. Not only am I unable to play a DVD now, but the screen appears fuzzy, with some wavy distortion. (I know that I am stuck in the menu section of the unit because I am sometimes able to see that there are a few words that appear to be a menu screen for DVD player settings.)

TruTech Customer Service tells me (on the phone) that I probably need to change the setting to NTSC. (Actually, I think I may need to change the "display size", or both the TV Type and the display size.)

In any case, I cannot see ANY screens nor any DVD that I put into the player - I have not seen the opening screen with the TruTech logo since this problem appeared. I have NEVER deliberately gone to any of the on-screen menus so I have NEVER seen any of the menus that I need to access in order to change the settings. I will need to change the settings in order to be able to see those menus, or to be able to exit those menus and watch DVDs again.

I have tried pushing arrow and enter buttons to try to change the settings or to access a different screen. In this process, I have sometimes changed the screen so that it shows some wavy distorted words on some screens, such as "audio" and "DVD".

I need pictures of the menu screens so that I can begin to figure out what screens I am on and what the potential functions are. I also need someone to explain to me exactly what on the screen is interactive and which buttons I need to push to navigate, first from screen to screen, and then on a screen, and then when to press "enter" to make a change in the display.

Hi, Remove the disc from the DVD tray then try pressing the PALl/NTSC button on the remote control three times. If the picture does not return, then you might accidently press the P.Scan button as well. Press the P.Scan button on the remote control three to four times, you should get the picture back. Dont forget to make sure you do not have a disk in the tray. Let me know the outcome so that I can further assist you. Thanks, MIke

SOURCE: TV screen is rolling and video appears only in black and white

Somehow we were able to get it fixed ourselves. We pressed the SETUP button on remote, then pressed the DOWN button 4 times then press the RIGHT button, then ENTER button for factory default setting.

No matter where i plug it into, either the front or back composite connections i still have no color. I've tried multiple dvd players and even bought a converter so i could plug a dvd player into the coax connection. still a no go. horrible product

Progressive Scan

Please go to the following link for an exact definition and how it is applicable to your situation. Please read all 3 pages of information!!!!! The short of it is, is that your TV may not be set up for progressive scan. Try turning off progressive scan on your DVD player's menu and see if this works.
