Question about JVC AV-20220 TV

1 Answer

We have a JVC 20220 television. A black box covers at least 50% of the screen. It will go away for about 3 seconds when various buttons are pushed, or when turned off, but it reappears. This occurs on all channels.

You have the closed-captioning turned on and set for "text" mode. If you turn it off the problem will go away. You can use the remote control or front panel buttons.

If you've lost your manual, you can find it here on JVC's site:

Zenith TV has a big black box in the middle of the screen.

After reading other postings, we figured out that it was the caption box, went to menu and turned it off.
Thanks for the great site, we wouldn't have figured it out without it !

Probably the text box for closed captioning. Turn off the closed captioning and see if it goes away. If not, then, try setting everything back to the factory presets. Your manual will tell you how.
