Since you got it at a garage sale could be anything... connections on back could be loose or even disconnected inside...circuit boards can be burnt out...(VCR) heads can be bad...(DVD) laser eye could be damaged - should have asked the seller to connect it and demonstrate features before you purchased it : ) Also check condition of your cables...Sorry

    It says progressive scan on the screen


    You can try this (it may or may not work for this model; it does for the Zenith XVB342 and XVB442 combos):

    On the main unit, not the remote, and with no discs in the DVD tray, press and hold [ STOP ] button for 5 - 10 seconds, then release. Progressive scan should now be switched OFF (the display indicator for progressive scan should disappear) and normal video output should be restored.

    Hopefully it works (there are no available manuals online for this model).

    I have a HD TV with cable and a go video DVD/VHS player hooked up. I went to change the time and accidentally changed the setting on the DVD player from auto scan (I think) from off to on and now when I...


    It sounds like you may have enabled the progressive scan output on your DVD-VHS combo. This is a correct setting if your TV support it. However most DVD players that support progressive scan will not support an interlaced signal and a progressive signal at the same time.

    It would appear that you are using a composite type cable (3 RCA ends. 1 for video and 2 for audio) for this hook up. This means you have two choices.

    #1 Look in the manual for the unit for the FACTORY Reset option. Its usually a combination of plugging the unit in while holding the power button or something similar to that. Without a model # I can't help any further with this option.

    #2 Use a component video cable (3 RCA red/green/blue) to plug your DVD/VHS player into a compatible input on your HD TV. Your TV will pick up the progressive scan output from the unit and give you back your on screen display. At this point you can go back into the menu and disable progressive scan. And now just reverse the process to plug the DVD player back in using the composite cable.

    It should be noted that if you have a progressive scan TV which HD TV's support you will get a better picture if you use the Component video cables instead of switching back to the composite cable. If you decide to use the component cables you will still need to run audio cables though.

    Best of luck.

    Have sound,no picture


    Do you have it hooked up using the component cables?(red, blue, green cables?) You need to use the component cables to use the progressive scan feature. So if you have it hooked up using the yellow rca jack, you will have to switch cables.

    I need to know how to get the progressive scan feature turned off so I can view DVD's.


    Thanks for the progressive scan advice. I have a Go-Video DV1130 Combo I didnt have a DVD in the combo and I pressed and held the stop button on the combo instead of the remote and it came out of the progressive scan mode so maybe it works both ways? But anyway Thanks for the advice it sure helped me.
