Need to turn OFF progressive scan on Sony DVD DVP-NS57P

I simply turned ON the progressive scan and now the screen is black and I can only hear the audio. I can't get back to the blue screen where I can display the menu options. Ultimately I am trying to play DVD+R's on this damn thing and I've been unsuccessful so far. My buddy at work burned them from limewire in MPEG format and they won't play on my dvd player. What do I need to do? When I insert the DVD+R it reads "no audio data" "no visual data". PLEASE HELP!!

    I tried pressing 3, 6, 9 keys while on standby and no luck.

    I've taken out all the cables and cords connected to the DVD player as well..

    Any other solutions?

With the remote: While in STOP mode, press the DISPLAY button. Use up/down buttons to select SETUP. Press Enter. Use up/down buttons to select CUSTOM.Press Enter. Use up/down buttons to select SCREEN SETUP. Press Enter. Use up/down buttons to select PROGRESSIVE. Press Enter. The manual is a bit indistinct after this, but I think the prompts will direct you. Just turn Progressive OFF.

To turn off progressive scan mode, press 3, 6, 9 keys of remote while dvd player is in standby.
Regarding limewire mpeg stuff playback, media player in computer is best.

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.

Progressive scan mode will not go away.


Depending on the model or version, normally Progressive Scan Mode maybe enabled/disabled by:
  • PScan or PS button on the original remote or front control panel;
  • a slide switch at the rear.
Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

No picture but has sound

Hi If your t.v.has built-in blue screen when there is no signal, then the DVD may have been accidentally switched to progressive scan mode, or defaults to that setting if new. If your T.V. is not capable of displaying in progressive scan mode, you will just get a blue screen. If you have an older tv, without blue screen, then connect it to that, and if you get a black and white split screen when you turn on the DVD, then progressive scan is the problem. Check the manual for the DVD player for the procedure to get out of that mode, and it should then work. If you still have no video, and you are using the yellow composite video jack on the back of your DVD player, then it must be brought in for service. Good Luck!
