Little transparent box with 2 in top right hand corner of screen

We just had a hdtv dvr cable box hooked up and now there's a transparent box with a #2 in the top right corner. When you turn the cable box off it stays on the tv so it's got to be a tv issue right? anyone else had this problem? Please help!! I have the 42" LG and the same thing happened. I'm not sure when the box appeared, but it took place while connecting the HD box. I've exhausted what seems to be all possible menu options to get this box to go away.

Sounds like a possible "burn in" issue. Although rare, seems like a rash of these are happening to the same model.

Cable from box to t.v , from antenna to box . If you have a hdmi cable plug into the back of the box, and plug into the hdmi input on the back or side of your t.v

Number 2 in upper right hand corner of screen


Had this problem also when I rebooted my Time Warner Cable box. Unplug everything from the wall including power strip and wait 60 seconds then plug back in and turn everything back on. Worked for me and havent had a problem since. Time Warner does not know what causes this yet.

Stubborn 2 in corner of screen


You have the picture in picture on and the second picture is black because there is no input source plugged into the second input.

In your manual, look up the picture in picture functions and how to control them. you should also be able to change that second picture to see the main feed and swap between them.

Good Luck,
Charles

I found a suggested solution, reboot the cable box (unplugging & replugging) and the mysterious #2 box should disappear.

Remove number displayed in right hand corner in output 4


The problem was with the cable box and not the television. We unplugged box - (we'd reset it before) and the "2" was gone.

Channel displaying on Samsung 32"LCD TV


Most remote controls have a "display" button. Pressing that is what gets that channel number on the screen. Try pressing it again and the display should turn off. On some brands the display may cycle through various combinations (channel number only, channell and time, etc.) before it goes away, so it may take more than one press of the button.

Connecting HD cable box to DVR too HDTV


When I hooked up my HD cable box using an HDMI cable, I had to go into the cable screen menus and select HDMI output. You may have to do something similar when using an S-video cable. Your DVD recorder doesn't seem to have an HDMI input, so you'll have to use the S-video or (worst case) composite video (red, white, yellow cords). Your cable box may also be scrambling the signal so that you can't record. That may be why you can record by bypassing the cable box.

Maxent 27" LCD Flat Screen TV


This is a fault i have seen with phillips lcd tv's and i suspect it could be the lcd screen itself,the ribbon cables from the screen are heat contacted on to a circuit board and there could be anything from 10 to 15 of these ribon cables and over a period of time the heat generated from the internal panels will deteriorate the plastic ribbon cables.
Try twisting the screen gently by placing your left hand on the top left hand corner and your right hand on the top right hand corner and gently twisting,if the lines go and then come back after you let go then a new screen will be required but it may be cheaper to buy a new one,could be worth buying the extended warrenty.
