The DVDR880 displays "IS TV ON?" when it is in factory mode. You need to switch the TV to the DVDR input, as the on-screen instructions will tell you how to proceed.

You will have to reset the DVD player in order to undo the progressive scan option. Since you cannot see a menu to do so...
1. Unplug the dvd player from the outlet
2. Press and hold down the STANDBY-ON m button on the front of the Recorder while reconnecting to the power outlet.
3.Release STANDBY-ON m when ' ' appears in the display. All the information stored in the memory (programs, time, TIMER) will be reset (cleared).
Hope this helps with your problem, thank you for stopping by Fixya! Please leave a positive rating if this solution works for you.

Press setup on your remote. Use up or down button to select( general settings ) press ok. Use the up or down buttons to ( reset all ) then press ok. Use the up or down button to ( yes ) press ok Use the up or down buttons again to select (yes) press ok. That should do it. If this works give me a vote please.Good luck.

This player is relatively easy to change to region free. Please complete all of the steps below to unlock your DVD player.
Please note: Unlocking any DVD player may invalidate the warranty. Unlock sequences may not work with some firmware updates and some DVD players have been damaged through failed attempts to unlock them. Unlocking your DVD player is done at your own risk.
Unlock sequence for the Philips DVP 3020:
1. Switch on your TV and DVD player;
2. Make sure the TV is set to the correct input for the DVD player;

4. Press the "SETUP" button on the DVD player remote control;
5. Use the LEFT/RIGHT arrow keys to highlight "PREFERENCE";

This is a verified unlock sequence for the Philips DVP 3020. If it doesn't work the first time, switch the power off and start again at step 1. If it still doesn't work, it is likely that you have updated your Firmware to a new version and this unlock sequence does not work with your firmware version
