Question about RCA 20F610TD TruFlat TV/DVD

2 Answers

Black Box so i have a RCA flat screen tv/dvd combo and about 6 months after i got it, this black box (almost taking up the whole screen) started popping up on certain channels. sometimes i could just change the channel once and it would go away; sometimes i had to change it two or three times. but it was only on local channels (usually during the news, or news commercials). however, after i moved and got charter cable and DVR, the black box is on every channel, and pops up anytime i use the DVR features. its a decent tv and i'd like to keep it, but this has become a very annoying problem. ever heard of it? thanks!

Re: Black Box

Same tv, same problem

This solution may annoy some since you will have the display info on the screen but it gets rid of the black box.

simply press display on your remote so that the channel is displayed on screen.

Re: Black Box

I had the same problem with my rca truflat.. i read from a posting of a similar problem with a different tv brand to switch your closed caption options 'off' or set it to a 'cc' option instead of the 't' options.. (this was done through the on-screen menu..) i gave it a try and it worked for my tv.. hope it works for you..

How to hook up an old RCA 14 inch tv to DVD

Easy. All you have to do is to make sure that the DVD player is old the older types that have RCA connectors at the back of the DVD. Latest DVD may have RCA connections but I am not sure if it can send digital signal directly to the analog TV. Try this and see what happens. if your TV is old and does not have Component Video (Red/Green/Blue) RCA sockets (input) but has standard Pal/NTSC sockets (Yellow/Red/Black) hook up the yellow, red and black plugs into a DVD (out) RCA sockets of same colour, then hook up the other end of the cable in the (in) RCA sockets at the rear of the TV.
If it works, then all is well. If it doesn't work, then you have to hook up the cable from the DVD to the (input) RCA sockets of a Set Top Box, so that the Set Top Box will convert the signals for the analog TV. Just pay attention to the inputs and outputs at the rear of them.
On your DVD - plug the RCA cable to the (OUTPUT) RCA sockets. On the Set Top Box - plug the connectors in the (IN) RCA sockets and then use another cable connected to the OUT RCA's of the Set Top Box, then connect the other connectors to the (IN) of the TV RCA sockets. Hopefully you get the picture on what I mean.

How do I connect my Magnavox DVD/VHS player to my Element Flat screen TV?

Do you have a newer TV or a older one lets start with a newer models does your tv have 3 or more jacks on the back or front you should see a RED, YELLOW and WHITE if you have a HDTV you should see more. (LETS HOOK UP) Did your DVD/VCR come with a cables if not you will need to buy at least 2 they are called RCA cables Lets start with the dvd/vcr combo on the back you should see a (LINE OUT) this is where playback or your picture and sound come out. On the back of the TV you should see a (LINE IN) this is where you plug it in to. RED goes to RED, WHITE goes to WHITE and YELLOW goes to YELLOW. To Record you will need to hook up the line in on your combo and the line out to your tv. ( IF YOU HAVE AN OLDER T.V WITH NONE OF THOSE JACKS ) you will need to buy a RF- MODULATOR the are cheap it is a box that let you hook a cable wire to a little box and the RCA jacks to you combo and you will turn your tv to channel 3 or 4
