Question about Portable Televisions

Large black square appears on screen of my Insignia NS-15LCD TV.

The black square covers most of the screen and comes and goes for no apparent reason. Sometimes, it includes a message-like text within the square.

Dvd player turns on but has no picture

My guess would be to get a dvd cleaning disc and make sure the lens is clean. If you have access to the lens you can use a cotton swab and a tiny bit of alcohol. Use circular motions and be gentle.

There is a large blank menu on the screen I am not able to remove, any suggestions on how to remove this?


From the tv's that I have had to fix, when it puts a big black square or box over the screen like that, it is because somehow the closed caption button has been hit and the caption setting is on text.

There are usually 5 settings for cc,off, cc1, cc2, cctext1, and cctext2
Find the button for your closed caption, and turn cc off.

This should fix your display issue.

I hope this helps you out, and if it does, feel free to give me a top rating!

Thanks !

Hello Betty

If you want its user manual, send your email ID also as I can't upload it to you by this site. This site only allows me to upload upto 50KB; and the manual goes far greater than this capacity. I'll send it to you by an email attachment. OK.

Toshiba-10 yrs old. screen goes to black with sound.

Hello, :)

There is a how, and a why, but first, let's start with the how. Portable TV's have LCD, (Liquid Crystal Display) Screens. But the Screen is merely a vivid illusion created by the rapidly moving electrons flowing through the crystals themselves causing color contrast ratios to shift so fast, hence creating the image.
And now the why: the TV uses a back illumination to light up behind the screen. That is why the screen goes black. Normally in LCD's, there are CCFL, (Cold Cathod Floruscent Lighting), these are tiny lamps that should be replace easily. google replacement model for your TV, and aslo type model # plus ccfl lamp. :)

Jensen LCD JE1907DC keeps looping the Jensen intro logo.

I don't have a solution but do have the same problem.
I took it in a reputable shop and they told me the main board was gone and they could not get parts for it.
I just found out that Jensen is a Audiovox trademark.

A black box is covering half of screen

Look in the menu for the "captions" heading. Once in the closed captions, turn off the "text" heading. This text mode is putting up the black box on the tv
