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.

Hi I hav a LG FLAT SCREEN HALF THE SCREEN WENT BLACK, EVERY THING ELSE IS FINE?


The screen is probably shot, or something is wrong inside the unit. Send it in for warranty, return it to the store if not very old, or replace it if it's too old.

Get speakers away from screen, Yes magnetism causes this problem. You must use shielded speakers if they are close to a TV.

Black out screen


I had the same problem once with my RCA television. It only happened on certain channels and didn't happen during commercial breaks. If I adjusted the volume on the tv the box went away, but came back shortly after. The problem ended up being some malfunction in the closed captioning. I turned it all off and changed the CC settings and never had the problem again.

Sounds like the PIP feature is causing the problem with the TV if you are connected directly to cable TV without a box inline and getting these issues.

Black box on screen


On your remote should be a button called TV caption or text. Turn off the closed caption as someone hit it and turned it on by accident. If its not on your remote, then it is in the menu. Good Luck Ps Please dont forget to rate this thread.

Black Box


i had the same problem with my rca truflat.. i read from a posting of a similar problem with a different tv brand to switch your closed caption options 'off' or set it to a 'cc' option instead of the 't' options.. (this was done through the on-screen menu..) i gave it a try and it worked for my tv.. hope it works for you..
