Question about Pioneer DV-260 DVD Player

6 Answers

DVD Player set to display settings unusable on available TV ( resulting in blank picture)

I had recently altered my DVD player settings to the ablities of a new HD Plasma TV. I have since returned the Plasma TV and switched back to my standard television that I was using with the DVD player, originally. I switched from S Video to Component Video and utilized the Progessive scan capabilities as well as the 16:9 viewing settings with the Plasma set-up. I forgot to change these settings back before returning the Plasma, and now through S Video, I receive a blank screen on my old TV. I can't change the settings back if I have no image to view the on-screen menu with. .... I'm stumped.

    I have the Pioneer DV-260 DVD Player and I have the exact same problem. But I was tinkering with the resolution settings or whatever and set it to like 1200x800 or something and the screen went blank, I was gonna hook my new LCD 42" up to it, but it's still not working on the new TV. I still can't see a picture and I don't remember the button sequence to change it back and my remote doesn't have a PSCAN button on the remote. Also the DVD player is starting to get picky with the DVD's it wants to play, especially with the newer movies. The scanner sometimes wont even run (I cant hear it even try to read), Probably is just getting old, but I would like the picture back to hook up in another room or have as a spare, It is like 4 years old now but I keep it dust free and in good condition and didn't use it a whole lot. Thanks in advance for any additional help.

Ok folks, I've found it......turn the unit off.....press and hold the << button on the unit....should be the button closest to the power button....then power the unit on....that's all there is to it....as it turns out, before you set the unit to "progressive scan" it warns you about that and tells you how to reset it...

How do I hook up my little DVD player to my tv?? The DVD player only has red, yellow, and white cords,, where to I plug it in at on the back of the tv and which setting.


New Samsung HDTVs use the GREEN RCA input for the yellow RCA video cable, plug it in there. Select the AV input on the TV. For sound, connect white RCA cable to white RCA input on TV.

Dvd player is playing in black and white on new tv. tv is a Insignia NS-P502Q-10


could it be the DVD player is european or simply set to output PAL or SECAM and not NTSC?

About the time plasma and LCD TVs started to replace classic CRTs pretty much all CRT TVs used to be able to handle both PAL/SECAM and NTSC.

Then, whether because of the difference in handling them due to switching to fixed display resolution or because of other considerations, less and less LCD and plasma TVs are handling all encodings.

So an older TV could have actually handled the encoding while a newer one lacks it, thus resulting in B/W image.

JVC XV-SA602 player - I just get red and blue wavy lines on my TV, but can get audio. I've checked my component video connections and they seem fine, but cannot get video or even the menu to come up on TV....


I found the problem, or at least the solution. I set the switch on the back of the DVD to "remote" and reset the TV settings on the remote (although they had not changed and were still OK). With the TV/Video switch set to "colorstream", I finally got the video from the DVD. This was odd, because my TV says it does not accept progressive scan and my settings have always been with the switch on 480i on the DVD. The only change has been a added cable TV DVR box capable of HD (although TV is not HD). Does not seem like that should affect things since the cable box just outputs to the TV. But, at any rate, this regained our picture.

High Pitch Noise on 42" PLasma Gateway TV


how old is your plasma TV? try check the switch / volume of the sound settings.. Sometimes, when you always increase the volume, it will tend to alter the limit of sound and causing the sound to provide sound undesiredness. I suggest to check it with a liscensed technician.

Sounds like a PAL/ NTSC problem which you must fix on either your TV input or DVD player output or settings. This should fix the problem if you alter the settings.
