Question about Recoton Advent Advent Q2035A 20" TV

1 Answer

The lower half of the screen is a black box on one channel

It is an Advent DV2418A, 24" flat color Tv/ DVD unit. While commercials are on, I get the full picture, and nearly all channels are full picture, but one channel, no matter the time of the day, the black box appears in the bottom half of the picture, about 5 seconds into regular programming. On another channel, during a short period of the day, we also get the black box. I suspect a programming problem in the remote, but I have no idea how to re-program it.

Check your closed-captioning settings. You probably have it set for "text". Make sure you turn captioning off and the problem should clear up.

The antenna port is broke off on my lg flat screen tv how do i fix it


It's possible to resolder the port back on but the tv will have to be pulled down to gain access to the tuner and tuner cover will need to be removed to resolder the signal wire where it's broken off the tuner board. In some cases the tuner needs to be desoldered and removed to get access to the tuner board. If your soldering skills are not great an alternative solution would be to use an external set top box. This can be a pest because you then need a second remote to change channels.

Why can't I get the DVD player to work? I have it hooked up to a cable box.


im wondering why you did not connect it to the tv ?? but instead to cable box , does it have a pass thru capability ?? does it need to be off to pass thru ?? as most dvd player don't have a rf output but instead use a hdmi or composite signal output , would it not be easier to connect one of these to a spare input on tv then when u want to use dvd you only need to select the proper input from tvs source button to view the dvd ??

24inch Bush smart TV/DVD not working.


The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.
