HELP!!! Toshiba SD510/projector prog scan problem!


Distinguished Member
Not sure if this is a problem with my projector or the DVD I thought I would post it in both forums!

I have a Plus U3-1080 DLP projector (clone of the american NEC LT-150), and have today (finally) got my new DVD player - Toshiba SD510E.

When running NTSC DVDs, I press the progressive scan button on the DVD remote....and the picture "doubles up" - i.e it's like the image has shifted half way across the screen and wrapped around onto the other me a blank bar down the middle.

It looks bloody awful, and the picture suffers from horrible interference.

The PJ is set to NTSC, and component (it's component via VGA, I bought the adaptor direct from NEC)'s all wired up correctly as interlaced pictures are fine.

So where am I going wrong?

I've checked through the Toshiba manual and it does actually describe this effect. It suggests switching the DVD player to "video progressive" instead of auto or film.....but it hasn't changed a thing.

Anyone come across this with either their projector or this particular DVD player?

Would appreciate some advice.

An unhappy smurf


I am not sure about your projector but my Sim2 needs to be set to accept either 32k signal for Progressive or 16k for interlaced, I have seen some dreadful effects when this is not the case.

Try moving the projector between settngs as this can sometimes fix things. hope this helps

Did you set the switch (I/P) to P for progressive on the back of the player?
Also make sure you have the video option in the 510 menu set to composite or s-video, progressive will not work if it is set to RGB.
Let us know how you get on.

Yep, those were the first things I checked....alas it still doesn't work:(

I can only assume this PJ doesn't output 480p.
