Question about kawasaki 5-DVD Home Theater System - 1152 System

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.

    Hi there, unfortunately, neither the front panel of the player or the remote have a "p," "progressive" or "P-scan" on them. I also did not see anything on the TV. The TV picture has color. It is only when the DVD player is turned on and the function is DVD. I would love any other suggestions you might have. Thank you!

    Hello, unfortunately, I decided to unplug the system to see if I might be able to reset it. Now I can no longer any picture. I hear the DVD, but can't see it? Any suggestions? Thank you

    there is no green component output from the DVD Player. There is an orange component and I tried that - but no luck. I am stuck. I really don't know what changed and why I am no longer getting a picture.

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...

    Ok... So, you can actually see the dvd playing on black & white, right? That means we can access the dvd player's set up menu, make sure there's no disc inside, go in the set up mode and look for the part that says "TV Screen", "Screen", "Resolution" or something similar, once you are in that mode, look for the settings to be on 480i, most like it you may have them on 480p or 720p, it should give you the option to togle between all those resolutions before you accept the correct one. Let me know how it goes... :-)

  • El Loco 1 Jun 09, 2008

    Ok, following the seccond solution I gave you, about going into the set up menu, but connect your Yellow composite RCA from your tv into the Green Component output from the dvd player, I believe that by doing this, you would get a "Black & White" picture. Once you have picture, follow the set of directions on my other commen about the set up menu.

  • El Loco 1 Jun 10, 2008

    Let me ask you something, Is your tv a newer model? Does it have HDMI or Componet inputs in the back? Because if this is the case, you'll be better of using this conections, the picture you'll get with those it's a lot better... Also do you have the owner's manual for this player? If you do, you should be able to find the information you need to restore the settings you need or restet it to factory conditions, I'm trying to find a website for this player, but so far no luck. Maybe if you do have the manual, we can check to see if there is a web site printed somewhere on the manual. Let me know...

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.

RTD 155 - only black and color

Perhaps you have set your DVD player for Progressive Scan Mode while your Television does not support for the same. Go to the setup menu and turn Progressive Scan Off. This will solve your problem.

Showing red image

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:
If you are using a Progressive Scan TV
(TV must indicate Progressive Scan or
ProScan capability), to activate TV
Progressive Scan, please refer to your TV
user manual. For DVD system Progressive
Scan function, see page 28.
Helpful Hint:
– If your TV does not support Progressive
Scan, you will not be ab le to view the picture.
Press and hold OPEN/CLOSE button and
press ‘1’ to deactivate progressive scan.

Progressive Scan - turning on/off
To select this item, you must set “Video
Output” to Y PR PB and ensure that your
TV has progressive scan (See page 11.)
Follow the steps of “Using the Setup
Menu” and select :
Select this to disable Progressive scan

These are pp. 11 and 28 of your owner's manual for the HTS

If these methods still fail, try turning your TV's progressive scan off or on.
