Question about Protron PD-800 DVD Player

1 Answer

No vertical hold

When using the PD-800 to play DVDs, the picture scrolls up as though there is no vertical hold. This is an intermittent problem, nearly constant with some DVDs, nearly absent with others, but I have this problem with all DVDs to some extent. With some DVDs, using the Zoom mode can sometimes stabilize the image.

Do you have it hooked up to a VCR? If so, it's the Macrovision kicking in.

How do i turn on my pd-6070 player

Hold down the "Play" Button and this also turns it off.

If you hold down the M button that gives you a menu and acts as the "enter" button. The play button is the "back" button and the left and right scroll is that scrolls.

Vertical Hold doesn't Hold

This would denote some kind of vertical sync problem. I would begin by checking the vert sync circuitry. To do this you will have to have an Oscilloscope, and DVD containing a steady-state picture. The oscilloscope is used to measure the vertical sync rate and the vertical sync pulses. Taking into mind that ther is a video signal present but it is in the black range. If you do not have an oscilloscope it makes troubleshooting this hard. in any event you will also need a schematic to see what waveforms you should be seeing. If you do not have a background in electronics you may have to have someone who does look at this unit.
