GBV441 Goldstar DVD Player / VCR Combo

There's sound but progressive scan mode appears on blue screen. VCR plays wonderfully. Purchased a RF Modulator and S Video and Coaxial and F - Type connectors. Still Progressive scan mode remains. The RF Modulator picks up a signaal because the red light appears. Any suggestions.

I am still looking for a manual for my dvd/vcr combo (goldstar gbv441)

Posted on Jan 05, 2008


We had the same problem with the progressive scan and were VERY frustrated. Holding the stop button down for 5+ sec was great and sold the problem instantly!  The kids are no longer upset.

Thanks holding stop for 5 seconds really work

Posted on Sep 22, 2008

You solve my problem, thanks.

Once the setting for progressive scan output is entered, an image will only be visible on a progressive scan compatible TV or monitor. If you set Progressive Scan to On in error, you must reset the unit. 1) Remove any disc from the unit and close the disc tray. See that ?dISC? is displayed on the display window. 2) Press STOP (9) and hold it for more then five seconds before releasing it. The video output will be restored to the standard setting and a picture will once again be visible on a conventional analog TV

DVD player wont show picture

to turn it off select connection method 3 above and progressive scanning mode, to set the mode, set progressive to off in the display menu so that the p scan indicator light on the front panel goes out. do all of this in interface mode. you can also do this by pressing and holding PLAY > on the front of the unit for more than 5 seconds, still watch for the p scan indicator to go off. this works best when the unit is connected directly to the television.

GoldStar DVD/VCR-progressive scan mode problem...``

Remove any DVDs from the disc player. You should be in Blue Screen mode on the TV...If it says "Progressive Scan Mode" ....make sure there is no DVD in it...close the disc changer and push and hold the "Stop" Button on the player, not the remote, for 5 seconds or longer. This has been proven to work every time!!!
