DVD79 Query!


Established Member
I turned on my DVD player last night & got the message PS OUTPUT on the display on the front of the player , the drawer kept opening & closing ,this went on until I switched it off from the mains ,after that it worked perfectly , what is PS OUTPUT? I could not find a reference to it in the manual !
Anyone know why this happened ? Thanks in Advance .......Jim


Hi Jim,

PS Output is progressive output. This is an option you can turn on/off in the Arcam set-up menus. Doesn't sound too good opening/closing the drawer, hopefully this will be a one-off ocurrance.

PS Output means it is set to output Progressive Scan. If your televieion does not acept progressive scan pictures then you shouod turn this off. If you are having difficulty then you can reset the players video setting by pressing and holding the 'stop' button on the front panel for about 5 seconds.
