I'm not sure if this works but you can try.

On the remote control press and hold the subpicture for 5 seconds.

Hope this helps.

Yes, that should do it. It's in the manual.

When I first got my Malata 996 I was screwing around with the remote and this happened to me. I went through the manual with a fine tooth comb and found the solution.

Edit: I got out my manual. It's at the bottom of page 16 under "Scanning Mode." This really should also be covered in "Troubleshooting" because it's not that hard to make this mistake and the solution in the manual is easy to overlook.
