Question about Durabrand DWT1304 13" TV

1 Answer

Unwanted rectangular black area appears on screen blocking 40% of picture

Sometimes a large black rectangular area appears on screen and will go away for a few seconds if I push the volume up or volume down button. Turning off the TV for a few seconds doesn't seem to change anything, but turning the TV off for several minutes usually makes the prolbem go away. Any suggestions?

    Sorry, but I don't think a shorted yoke could produce this symptom. The symptom is not a diagonal line, but is a large, completely filled-in black rectangle that occupied approximately 40% of the screen area. the black area dies not extend to either side, nor to the top or the bottom of the screen, and is mostly in the bottom half of the screen.

This could be the result of a partly shorted vertical winding on the deflection yoak.Since the line is on an angle and not straight across.

Large black square blocks screen


Most likely it's the closed captioning has been turned on. From your post I assume you have the remote control and able to access the menus so try to turn off the closed captioning. I'll be notified if you post something new.

A black box appears on the screen


Hi,
Just happened to see your black box problem associated with your T.V.; Thought I would pass along an idea for you to check into, and let me know if it helped...Check into whether or not it has a onscreen text block mode, if it gets into this mode by accidentally pressing the wrong buttons on the remote and or TV, it could and I have seen, at least with zeniths, a big black box which will cover the whole screen except for a 2 to 4 inch border around the box and outer edge of the screen...if this is the case, find someone familiar with the correct setting for the set associated with this problem, and get it back into the right mode....Hope this helps..T.
