Question about Zenith ZDX-313 DVD Player / VCR Combo

1 Answer

I have a surround sound Zenith model # ZHX313 (vcr,dvd and turner). I turned on the progressive scanner while in menu but now I can't turn it off. I've tried unplugging and also tried holding down the stop button when playing a dvd with no success. (This solution was posted on this site.) I get the sound but no picture - just progressive scanner on the screen. Help - did I break it?

Hi there,

It's unlikely that you've broken it - you appear to be using the wrong method for switching it off.

Correct instructions for turning Progressive (P) Scan off:

1. Remove any disc from the unit and close the disc tray.
2. Wait for the "NO DISC" message to appear on the display
3. Press and hold the "STOP" button on the front of the unit for at least 5 seconds then release.

The video output should return to the normal setting and "P/SCAN" should disappear from the display on the front of the player.

If you are still unable to switch P/SCAN off, please post back for further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

I was playing with settings on my Zenith xbv342 and set the menu to progressive scan. I now have a blue screen with the words "progressive scan mode" I cannot get a picture and it is stuck in this m


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.

Blue screen with progressive scan mode displayed.how do i clear this its a zenith zhx313 dvd vcr combo


There are a few options here. If you have another TV that is "HDTV Ready" logo'd then you can hook this to the DVD player and go into the menu and remove the progressive scan setting then retry it on the original TV.
  1. Look for an external button or remote control button that turns progressive scan on or off.
  2. Remove any discs from inside the DVD tray with the power on, then hold down the Stop button on the front of the DVD player for about 10 seconds to see if this will reset the system to default.
  3. If no joy, you will need to contact the manufacturer for the exact reset steps for restoring to default settings.
Hope this was helpful. Thanks for visiting FixYa.com

Progressive scan mode will not disable


Hi, you must hold 1st remove the disc (if you have one in) then hold down the STOP which is just under the RECORD button. Hold it for about 6 to 8 seconds. That should clear it.

Good luck

I can not turn off the proggressive scan!


Try this to disabel the progress scan mode: Pointing the remote at the player, press the STOP key to stop any disc that is playing. Next, press the STOP key again and hold it for five seconds before releasing it. This should turn the Progressive Scan off.

Turn off progressive scan mode


If you set progressive scant On by accident,you must reset the unit. 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. The video output will be restored to the standard setting and picture will once again be visible on a conventional analog TV or monitor.
