The Sylvania combo unit DVC860E has audio but no video for DVD.

Connected through rca jacks, tried S video, no picture, tried composite, & had a b&w picture. I am quite sure, since the progressive scan is turned on, & the other same model is turned off & working, that is the problem.

I tried the sequence of buttons on remote, but will not give me a text menu picture to go by, & no action when I hit setup or menu.

The remote, however is working on the unit, as it will stop & play.

All connections were double checked, including changing source on tv to S video, etc.

In a nutshell, the lack of setup menu in the dvd part holds me back to turning off the progressive scan.

The vcr portion works good with its separarate set up menu.
