Re: have sound,no picture
Do you have it hooked up using the component cables?(red, blue, green cables?) You need to use the component cables to use the progressive scan feature. So if you have it hooked up using the yellow rca jack, you will have to switch cables.

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.
1) Remove any DVD that may be inside 2) Press AND Hold Stop Button (on front of Player) for 5 or more seconds 3) All Done - This will have reset player back to Interlaced Mode and you can now see your DVD!
If you have not already seen this or done it - it worked for us:
On page 18 of the user manual under Progressive scan there is a Caution which says - If you set Progressive Scan to On in error, you must reset the unit. 1) Remove any disc from the unit and close the disc tray. See that "dISC " is displayed on the display window. 2) Press STOP (9) and hold it for more than five seconds before releasing it. The video output will be restored to the standard setting and a picture once again be visible on a conventional analog TV or monitor.
This sounds like a progressive scan issue (unit in P.Scan Mode) here is a C&P from the manual
Set "Alt Video Out" Highlight "Alt Video Out", then press the RIGHT button to select one of the following options: • S-Video - Select this if you are using the S-Video OUT jack on the rear panel to connect to a TV. • Component - Select this if you are using the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks on the rear panel to connect to a Progressive(480p) or Interlaced (480i) TV. • See your TV owner's manual to determine what type of TV you have. - Interlace : Interlaced Scan mode will work. - Progressive : Progressive Scan mode will work, and Video and S-Video will not work. • Press the Progressive button on the front panel if you have a Progressive scan TV only. Otherwise, the picture will be disturbed.
to turn it off select connection method 3 above and progressive scanning mode, to set the mode, set progressive to off in the display menu so that the p scan indicator light on the front panel goes out. do all of this in interface mode. you can also do this by pressing and holding PLAY > on the front of the unit for more than 5 seconds, still watch for the p scan indicator to go off. this works best when the unit is connected directly to the television.
Once the setting for Progressive Scan output is entered,
an image will only be visible on a Progressive Scan compatible
TV or monitor. If you set Progressive Scan to On in
error, you must reset the unit. Pointing the remote at the
player, press the STOP (x) button to stop any disc that is
playing. Next, press the STOP (x) button again and hold it
for five seconds before releasing it. The video output will
be restored to the standard setting, and a picture will once
again be visible on a conventional analog TV or monitor.
