Any way to reset an Apex DVD to factory default?

Discussion in 'DVD Video' started by Paul Soderman, Nov 22, 2003.

  1. I was messing around with the remote on my Apex AD-3201 DVD (cheap, I know
    but it worked OK until tonight), and I managed to enter a wrong video output
    in the Setup Menu. I apparently chose YUV instead of CUBS, after setting the
    TV System output to Auto, from NTSC. The feed from the DVD now doesn't show
    on the TV now; as a result, I cannot even see the Setup Menu in order to put
    things back the way they were!

    Ideally, I'd like to find some type of reset or default setting that would
    permit me to have the deck go back to the initial settings so I could make
    things right again. Could anyone point me in the right direction? Much
    thanks for any help!

    (If possible, I'd appreciate an email to my AOL account of Kidpocono, as my
    comcast email isn't working).

    Thanks much, Paul

  2. I found the fix to this, somewhere on a Web search on Apex stuff (on a Hack
    site, I believe), and figured I'd post it in the event that it might help
    someone else.

    Apparently what the machine does in the YUV mode results in something that
    makes the feed from the deck to S-Video unworkable (perhaps among other
    things). If you use the regular video feed (ie. the yellow jack/output) to
    another source (ie. the VCR), or else make the input to the TV/monitor
    accept the video jack instead of S-Video, you can get the output from the
    Apex onto the screen that way. After you see what the menu is up to, you can
    reset that way.
