Question about JVC AV-20920 20" TV

1 Answer

Don't have a remote and can't get black square off (PIP?)

We have this TV which works great except when press menu and select clear background, all is clear except writing for menu. After about 3 minutes it disappears and is replaced by black box. Is this the PIP? How do you get rid of it without a remote? Thanks! dsknee

Black box is called a text box--part of and activated by the
Closed Caption part of menu. You should be able to de-activate
using buttons on front of set......T.

I HAVE A BLACK SUZRE BOX SHOWING AT THE BOTTOM OF MY SCREEN. SOMEONE TOLD ME THAT IT WAS THE PICTURE IN PICTURE. HOW CAN I GET THIS BLACK SQUARE OFF OF MY SCREEN.


That's a text box not pip. Press the cc button repeatedly on your remote control or go into your menu and find the closed captioning setting. There may not be a menu item for closed captioning. It might be a button on the remote only. You should be able to scroll through the closed captioning options when pressing the cc button to choose off. You are more likely in the text1 or text2 mode right now. If I am wrong and it is pip there should be a pip button that will enable you to turn this feature off (or a menu option). If you need the remote that originally came with this television try http://www.replacementremotes.com/

Black square on screen that covers half the picture appeared on my 42" sharp aquos tv.


sounds like you might have PIP turned one (picture in picture) .. if there is no input hooked up for the PIP . you will just get a black screen ... you should be able to move that PIP around and change its size .. indeed turn it off .. look for a menu item called PIP .. select PIP off ..

I have a sony trinitron XBR and the PIP won't turn off. Any help is greatly appreciated.


Please make sure that one input is connected to the UHF/VHF port of the TV and other is connected to composite or component ports. If you have connected likewise, please perform the steps below:
  1. Ensure the video source is turned on.
  2. Ensure the video source is connected to an available VIDEO input jack on the back of the television. IMPORTANT: The VIDEO 5 input cannot be used to view a program in the PIP window.
  3. On the television remote control, press the TV FUNCTION button.
  4. On the television remote control, in the PIP section, press the TV/VIDEO button to select the appropriate video input for the PIP window.
  5. If the issue is not resolved, connect the Audio/Video (A/V) cable from the video source to a different VIDEO input jack on the television.
  6. On the television remote control, in the PIP section, press the TV/VIDEO button to select the appropriate video input for the PIP window.
  7. If the issue is not resolved, replace the A/V cable.
