Try pushing the OUTPUT SELECT button on the DVD remote.
This button Cycles through the 3 main output views:
DVD, Tuner and VCR.

SOURCE: stuck with progressive scan mode

I've had the same problem. Press and hold the 'stop' button down on your remote for five seconds (make sure you've clicked 'setup' off) until the main play screen (in my case the opening play screen for my Zenith player) appears. You'll be fine after that. Just stay away from the 'progressive scan' - it's a feature you probably don't need, anyway.

How can i turn off the sap? I have used the setup menu, but when i get to the sap mode the arrows on the remote do not work.


Here are a few suggestions to help you with this problem:
1. While in the setup menu, and you are at the SAP mode, before using the arrows on the remote, hit the OK button, then the arrow on the remote. It is possible that when there is a drop-down menu involved, rather than just an on-off choice, the DVD is set to have to hit OK first to "lock down" the submenu.
2. Check to see if your DVD setup menu has more than one available language/closed captioning option in different areas of set up. For example, depending on your brand, there may be options available in general set up as well as video set up.
3. Check to see if your remote has audio and subtitle buttons. If you cannot set your options through the menu, it is possible with those buttons to chose the language and captioning options as you are watching.

Hope this helps you.

I have a Toshiba SD-590KV2, I hit the Default setting under the Misc setup and the picture flips up like there is no horizontal hold. I disconnected it for a while but same thing happened. How can I fix...


I just did the same thing...
Using your remote press the keys in the following order:
1. Setup
2. Down Arrow
3. Right Arrow
4. Down Arrow
5. Down Arrow
6. OK
7. Up Arrow
8. OK
9. Left Arrow
10. Ok (After this the screen should be legible)
11. Press OK one last time to save the setting before it reverts to the PAL setup and you have to do all of this again.
Good Luck!

I had sound yesterday. left on all night - no sound today


Sounds like you did hit a button on your remote. More than likely it's an audio button on the remote. This button typically selects an audio track on the dvd itself. It's either this or somehow during setup you've selected (depending on the rest of your audio setup) either the bitstream or PCM output for sound. I would just try hitting the audio button until you get something, or go into your dvd setup and try changing from either bitstream or PCM to the other choice.

Setup menu


Ok I've just found out how to get the interlaced/progressive problem sorted out. It is as follows and PLEASE REMEMBER you will be doing this "Blind" sice the screen is black:

1. Power on the DVD unit.
2..Press the "SET UP" button on the remote, ONCE (DVD Display should show "Setup" )
3. Using the arrow buttons on the remote, push the RIGHT arrow ">" ONCE
4..Press the "DOWN" Arrow on the remote ONCE
5. Press the "ENTER" button on the remote ONCE
6. Press the "DOWN" Arrow on the remote ONCE
7. Press the "ENTER" Button on the remote ONCE
At this point you should have your picture and menu displayed on the screen, simply hit setup again to exit, and get the hell out of there!

If you want a copy of what you should be looking for, e mailed, I can do that.
Finally, to do a system restore, which will achive the same results (but you'll have to reset date, time etc.), follow steps 1 & 2 Then instead of hitting the DOWN arrow once, press it THREE times and hit "ENTER" this will restore the unit to factory settings. I have never done this so I am only guesing what other settings you will have to adjust, as well as time and date.

I also have the details on how to make the unit region free, email me and I'll send them to you.
Good Luck!
