Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

When turned on the TV picture is OK. After a few seconds it suddenly becomes black except for approximately 1-2 inches around the perimeter. If any button on the converter is touched the picture returns, but only for a few seconds before becoming black.

My JVC model AV-20F476 has a black-out box that covers most of the bottom half of the screen.


Go into menu and under CLOSED CAPTIONS look to see if TEXT is engaged---if it is set to text 1 turn it off or to text 2,3,4, etc

Text was a feature never really used but it is there, some cable boxes also have this setting/feature.

Let me know if you have questions.

Black box showing up while viewing DVDs


This sound like a problem with the Closed Caption, on many sets if the C.C. is set to text a black box apears, and since it only happens on DVD you might look at the DVD menu and see if it has this Text featcher in the Closed Caption menu and turn it off

Problems with my 61 inch phillips t.v.,need help a.s.a.p.


Can you explain more about what you mean by big then small? When the picture got small do you mean it shrunk down in size leaving a black screen around the perimeter? Or did it bow in from top bottom? If you van acurately describe what it was doing I may be able to point you into the right direction on diagnosing the problem.

TV Picture Goes Black


I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
Thanks to those who posted the solutions

Mitsubishi VS-5041 50 Inch Rear Prorjection TV No image but there is sound!


After 11 years???? OMG This set is a tired pup and should be put to reast. My experience with older sets and your complains are all capacitor problems and is only gonna get worse as the first time around repair will take several capacitors to repair. This set has no user serviceable parts inside so you should not attempt a repair suchj as this on your own.. This repair if you decide to go through the first time will be About 300 to 600 bucks the first time and cost will continue to raise till the sets put to sleep. Good luck
