Progressive scan turned on - how do you turn it off?
Hello, I saw your answer that perhaps the progressive scan is accidently turned on with red, white, and yellow cables and therefore that could be the reason I am having color issues. I can only see black and white from DVDs that play on other players just fine. Can you advise how I can go about checking to see if this was turned on and if so, turn it off? I have a Kawasaki HT1210 DVD Home Theater System. Thank you in advance for your help.

I know how to fix this. what you gotta do is first turn the player on, have it on the dvd setting with a dvd inserted. play the dvd like you normally would.. i know the screen is still red at this point in time.. after the dvd is playing.. i mean the actual movie.. not previews or anything like that.. after the actual movie is playing for a few seconds.. hit stop on the remote 2 times.. after this, hit the setup button on the remote, from here just scroll to the video tab and you'll see the CBVS option which needs to be changed to the other one.. the YUV.. and abara cadabra your screen is back to normal. Now I noticed there was a p scan button on the remote, which I couldn't even get to work.. so ya if you follow those steps you'll be able to enjoy your movie within a minute!

I'm not very familiar with this namebrand on electronics, but they are all the same anyways.To check if this function is on, usually the player's lcd screen would have a "P", "PROGRESSIVE" or "P-SCAN" on it. First, make sure you remove all dvd's or cd's from the player, then look for a button on the remote, or the unit itself that say's "P-SCAN", "PROGRESSIVE" or "RESOLUTION", once you find it, push it, sometimes they would indicate the resolution on the player's lcd screen (480i, 480p,720p,1080i, 1080p), if not, on the tv itself. The resolution you are looking for is 480i for the type of cables you are using (composite RCA). Give it a try, and let me know how it goes...

Had exactly the same problem. You need to reset the DVD recorder to it's default setting. The default is "interlaced".
From the users manual.........
Switching the DVD Recorder
1 Disconnect the recorder's power cord.
2 Hold down the FF button (arrow pointing left) the front of the DVD Recorder while
reconnecting the power cord. 'PRO' (progressive scan) will appear
on the display.
3 If you want to switch back, repeat steps 1 and 2 . 'PRO'
(progressive scan) will disappear from the display. The DVD
Recorder is switched to 'Interlaced.'
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.
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.

Make sure red is matched up to red, green to green, and blue to blue first. Then, try a different set of YPbPr (component) cables if you have a set available. If it still shows up red, then read this:

Remove any disc from the unit and close the disc tray. See that "disc" is displayed on the display window. Now press STOP and hold it for more than 5 seconds before releasing it.
