Constant channel box on screen

When just watching TV the channel box is constantly in the top right corner. When I go to menu box it disapears. This was not here and we must have changed something? I have went throught the book and made multible changes to affect this with no luck. Thanks Jim

Re: Constant channel box on screen

I have the same kind of tv and I was having the same kind of problem, however since the tv waas given to me without a remote I had to purchase a universal remote. the general Electric universal remote I bought works for turning off the channel display. you just push the info button. they are virtually inexspensive as well I purchased mine from target for $9.99.

Re: Constant channel box on screen

There should be a button on the remote called display and this should turn off the channel display. If it dosent then have the remote checked and make sure its working in that function. A universalo remote wont work as well in most cases. Good Luck

I have a constant ringing sound coming from the tv. It goes up and down as I increase or lower the volume by remote. As I change the audio option to "Spanish", regular "English" audio comes out on c

The fact it shows on tuner and not DVD means not likely a audio problem--check all audio settings in the set's menu AND if you are using a box for signal look there--has to be a setting.

Some JVC sets (brand indicated here) also had issues with when watching the background audio (like a sporting event) was louder than the people talking and could be interpreted as ringing--This is a setting in the set called something like "Theater" or "Hall"

Has to almost certainly be a setting in the set.

Says no signal on screen while hooked up to cable box and will not change channels


First, make sure the cable box is correctly connected and power is on and try pressing the "TV/DTV" button in the top right corner of the ORIGINAL Sylvania remote. If this doesn't work, try pressing the "MENU" button and make sure the menu displays. If the only button that works on the remote is the red "POWER" button then it's likely your main A/V board will need replacing.

Try the above and post back if you need further assistance.

Could you tell me why the tv insignia channels swich fron 2 to 3 channel, and the tv value is going up and down by itself? Because I"m not able to watch my programs. Can You help with this?

if you have set top box ,go to main menu ,check on restore factory settings ,put in default password 0000 and press ok,restarting the set top box automatically,waiting for some minutes.

restarting starts scanning all channels one by one and put them on their respective location in channel store.

now ,enjoy with all channels.

same process is done with tv if u have't any set top box ,only RF input from ur cable operator.

Sanyo DS31590 channel display

I found the solution to this problem . If someone accidentally hits the recall button the display channel will show on the TV screen, To correct this problem hit the Info Button and the display channel will disapear. This works only if you have the standard cable box. I have another TV that uses a dual mode cable box, tried this procedure with analog RCA TV but it didn't work. Don't know if this procedure will work for all display problems, but it worked for me.
