    A friend told me to hold the power and menu button at the same time for about 30 seconds and that it should reset the tv....worked like a charm! Thanks.

    While we are watching the telelvision a small black square ( about a 2x2 inch square) appears near the bottom of the screen. Slowly, the square turns into an L shape, then a rectangle, until finally stopping filling the center of the screen with a solid black box. The perimeter of the screen shows the picture of what was being viewed. On occasion a series of letters or symbols appear in the box, but this does not hapen every time.


    Turning the tv off and then on, or choosing the Menu button on the remote causes the box to disappear, while changing channels does not. We have checked the closed captioning option which was already set in the off position?? We are waiting to see if the problem continues to occur. Please help!?

How do you get the menu/factory display off TV screen to get tv to work?


To exit the factory mode, you should have its remote control. If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.
Without its remote control, no other way. Contact the authorized service center.

How do i change screen modew without the remote on an emerson LC195EMX


Hello
It is very sorry to say that no universal remote controls are fully compactable with all the function to this set. You must have its original remote control to set all the functions. The original remote control to this set can be bought from the authorised service center for Emerson at your town. Its model number is (NH000UD). If you can get this model remote from anywhere other that service center, ie, form any local electronic sparepart selling shops, it's OK. Insist on the same model number. It is so important. Normally, remote control is an attached accessory with this set. OK.

I doo not have the origanal control for my philips tv... I have a dish universal remote!!! And it does not give me the option for cc off!!! Help me plz its driving me crazy


That is a problem, the original remote is needed for all options, you could go to the nearest TV repair shop to see if they might have good used one for your model. Some tv tech's keep a large box of remotes for that purpose. The only other option is contact the company for a new remote if they are still available.

I lost my remote for my jvc 36" av-36020 my daughter still managed to lock the screen so all you see is a black box, we left the tv on before and it went away after a month then the power went out and...


The black screen you see is a closed captioning text box. you may be able to access the onscreeen menu from the front panel controls to shut off the captioning..If not , you may be able to obtain a universal replacement remote to access these features...If that does'nt work, then you will have to try to get an original remote

Unwanted black rectangle on the TV screen


I'm not sure what type of TV you are using,, but most all Large Screens have a reset button someplace. You should be able to reset the TV and fix the problem. Its not the remote, making the image appear, but a command from it was misinterpeted. Sometimes turning the set off will work, but most often it needs to be reset.

EXCEPTION... if you are using a cable box. Disconnect it from power, wait 1 minute and then see if the problem exists. If the cable box is on even with the DVD you may still have this issue. Please reset the cable, and if that doesn't work, reset the TV.
Thanks! //D
