How do you turn off Progressive scan mode?
on Mar 30, 2006 at 9:57:44 pm

Hey,

I mistakenly turned Progressive scan mode "ON" on my Zenith Dual DVD VHS combo and I can't turn it off. It won't play video, I only get audio. I can't get the blue screen that reads "Progressive Scan Mode ON" off my television. To my understanding, progressive scan is used for component video or s-video. How do I fix it?

Oh dear! You got yourself in a pickle. As I understand it you turned on progressive scan in the menu and now you can't turn it off because you can't even see the menu? I just love technology!

1. Well, does the manual mention anything about a way to reset the machine to the factory default setup? Maybe there's a small hole in the back panel with a reset button hiding under it.

2. Do you have a friend or neighbor with a progressive scan TV that you could hook your machine to temporarily to change the menu back to interlaced?

3. Is there a progressive/interlaced button hiding on the remote for your machine?

4. How about calling the factory support number or website in the manual. They would certainly know how to solve your problem.

I hope some of this points you in the right direction.

Thanks for your response. I have yet to find the owner's manual, but I will try some of your other suggestions.

Play The Movie in The DvD player then press the stop button once then press it again and hold it for 8 seconds

Chewy,

I just found this online and it worked! let me know if you need more clarifcation...thanks!

Put a disc in the DVD and press play. Pointing the remote at the player, press the STOP key to stop any disc that is playing. Next, press the STOP key again and hold it for five
seconds before releasing it. This should turn the Progressive Scan
off.

Bye!

I don't know if anyone is still having this problem, but I too have a Memorex DVD/VHS player combo that was stuck in Progressive scan mode. I tried everything. Then I discovered a single switch on the back side of the player that manually turns PS on and off.
