Question about JVC AV-27230 27" TV

Black box shows on tv with cable or dvd, not vhs

We have a black rectangle that shows up on most of our screen when watching tv or a dvd, but the picture is fine for vhs viewing. We can press the menu button on the tv and see the menu, but when the menu closes, the black rectangle shows up again. We have a dual vhs/dvd player hooked up to the tv and cox cable service. Thanks!

    I kept searching on the internet and found my answer! So proud of myself for fixing this!

    Here's what worked for me?
    I get a big black square box covering 90% of my picture.
    This is a function of the closed caption circuit available for future use called text mode. Simply press close the caption button on the TV remote until the square disappears. If your TV doesn't have the closed caption button on the remote you will need to do the following:
    Bring up the menu and highlight closed caption.
    Press the Volume + button to access this menu.
    When you enter this menu it will say Mode Text.
    Press the Volume + button until it says Mode Off.
    Then press the Channel up? button and highlight Finish.
    Then press the Volume + button to save your settings.

When I play DVD's my tv screen gets a rectangle box on it, the VHS is fine, it's just the DVD player.


Yes! you are right, this almost sounds like a captions problem, check the DVD/VCR Combo menu, if it has captions turn it off using your remote.

Can't get rid of black box


You have your TV in the "Teletext" mode. Go into the TV menu and select the closed-captioning menu and turn off the text function. What you are seeing is the result of the TV's captioning circuit latching onto a false text pilot signal and then throwing up the black box on the screen.

I cannot record using a DVD/VHS player.


You can record. From antenna to converter box, from converter box to vcr. From vcr to TV.
TV on Channnel 3 VCR on channel 3, and set channel on converter box. Then Record.

Time recording works the same way, but you can set for only one channel at a time. Tht is the only restriction that I have not overcome. The converter box sets the channel. Gee Whizz

Hooking up my DVD/VHS player to TV & Convertor box


I would just hook up the dvd/vhs player with the red,white,yellow rca cables that should of come with your unit and just go to the input on the tv to watch your dvd/vhs player. This will give you a better picture and sound while allowing you not to have to watch dvd/vhs on a channel which helps make the dvd/vhs player independent. Also if possible I would hook the converter box up with the red,white, yellow rca cables to the tv as well if your tv has more than one set of red,white,yellow plugs since it is a better connection that coax and you probably watch more tv than vhs/dvd anyway. So bottom line try to hook up both boxes red,white,yellow and watch each box on different inputs instead of like channel 3 or 4. Also to record of converter box you can run coax from converter box to dvd/vhs combo and make sure your dvd/vhs player is on tuner input or channel 3.

Daewoo dvd install


  1. Be sure that your VCR is a newer one with at least one "line in" set of jacks in the back. Some have one in the back and one in front.
  2. Your DVD Player should have a video/sound cable with 3 connectors on each end. Otherwise get one or 3 single cables.
  3. Connect DVD Video Out to VHS Video In (yellow).
  4. Connect DVD Left to VHS Left (white).
  5. Connect DVD Right to VHS Right (red).
  6. Turn on your DVD and VHS.
  7. Your VHS should have a tuner setting for "L1" or "L2". Select whichever shows the DVD's video on the TV.
  8. Remember to select that input channel whenever you want to watch the DVD.
  9. When watching a DVD, if you have a blank VHS in the VCR, you may record what you are watching onto the VHS, just as if you were recording from cable.
Verify these steps and you should be good to go ;)

Unwanted black rectangle on the TV screen


I'm not sure what type of TV you are using,, but most all Large Screens have a reset button someplace. You should be able to reset the TV and fix the problem. Its not the remote, making the image appear, but a command from it was misinterpeted. Sometimes turning the set off will work, but most often it needs to be reset.

EXCEPTION... if you are using a cable box. Disconnect it from power, wait 1 minute and then see if the problem exists. If the cable box is on even with the DVD you may still have this issue. Please reset the cable, and if that doesn't work, reset the TV.
Thanks! //D
