I have a Samsung p241 dvd player currently using the component output jacks. I also have the 42 inch plasma TV to go along with it. Everything was fine until I decided to hook the dvd player up to a different tv using the regular video jack. Lo and behold the picture is all screwed up and I can't even read the screen. Thinking I need to go to the video screen to change some settings, I re-hook the player to the plasma tv using component connections only to find that the picture is now screwed up in this mode as wel. What can I do to solve this problem of mine. Is there a reset button or anything?

Unplugging it should be reset enough. So no matter what you do or how you hook it up the screen is garbled? Doesn't sound like good news. Maybe it somehow got in PAL mode (or NTSC at the case may be, since you don't list a location).

I'm in Michigan, Detroit to be exact. I've unplugged it several times and nothing has happened.

Need to get a component picture again and setup the output to video. If I misunderstand you, then you need to hookup video and get menu and setup component out.

Bingo!

Some DVD player can output both video outs at the same time. Yours doesnt appear to have this function. Usually when this is the case there is a button on the front for switching to Non-progresive.

One thing to make things easier while you search for SOME kind of image is to take one video cable from the DVD player's yellow video jack and plug it into the yellow jack on the display; if that doesn't work, take that ONE cable and run it from the Green output to every video input on the display, one at a time, until you get an image. The Green output will give you just a black and white image, but once you have that, you can add the other two cables for color. This makes it easier to do while you are reconnecting things.

Also, if you get a garbled image, get into the menu of the display to see if the display can be changed to show different resolutions, and try them all. Sooner or later you should get a combination of input and resolution capability that will show something, unless, say, your DVD player is outputting PAL and the display just can't show PAL at all.

Then take it back to the dealer and see if they can figure it out.

Yes, I said take it back to the dealer. Oh, you bought it on the internet???......

Smart comment - where is it mentioned it was purchased off the internet, or did I miss someting. I guess you are really referring to an 'authorized dealer' and not just a dealer. 'Dealers' have also been know to sell contraban (might want to refer to the defintion), or in many a case cars all over the states.

Besides, for the savings that could be had buying these of the internet sometime back, you could have bought 3 for the same price as one from a local authorised dealer - heck they sold for less than $50! That was around 2 years ago. find me a local a/d who'll take back a 2 year old $50 player and I'll find you someone who won't be in business all that long.

Hope you got this sorted, but unless you know the exact menu path navigation to switch back, I'd go with what ToughCommander said earlier

I had the same problem with a DVD player until I figured out that the last TV I had it hooked to would accept Progressive scan output, and the new TV would not. After fussing with the units buttons for awhile I finally got it out of Progressive scan and from then on the image looked fine.

BTW, the progressive signal to the non-progressive TV had confused it. I had to unplug the the TV for awhile and then plug it back in to get it to accept any signal at all on it's Video input. It's possible feeding a progressive signal to a non progressive set caused a similar confusion with your DVD player.

Good luck. I know I was certainly puzzled and frustrated when a similar thing happened to me.
