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.

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.
