Sanyo DWM-3900 Hello, I had posted a problem that was answered by MakikiChris, I took his advice but it did not fix my problem. I was advised to check my regen setting and that was correct. When I put a DVD in my unit it winds up and reads for a mnute, but after a minute it spits out the DVD and replys with a Disk Error. please advise. I have checked the ends of the wire strips they look good with no sight of and cracked or damaged conectors.

In DVD mode, Progressive Scan shows on screen. Just press the stop button on the front panel for about 5 - 10 seconds and it will go back to standard mode.
I did the same thing tonight and I just tried pressing buttons

Stuck in Progressive Mode

Had the same problem; here's what i did. Take DVD out of Receiver, close door to receiver and hold down stop button on receiver itself for five(5) seconds. changes should take effect and progressive scan screen should revert back to sanyo screen.

My sanyo dwm-3900 is on progressive scan mode how do i fix this


If your DVD players is set to Progressive Scan Mode, tehn ther would be a light indicating it is so. The light is labeled P?scan on the bottom right side of your display window.

You can disable/turn OFF the P/Scan mode in the "Setup menu".

Hope 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.

Dwm-3900 wont play dvd's

Because you have limited knowledge of your products history, first ensure that your Country Code is set correctly. Using your remote, access your User Menu/Setup > Country Code > U S > Memory > Setup. I am assuming that you are in the US, and are trying to view Region 1 DVD's. Please update for further instructions if the above doesn't solve your problem....good luck.
