Question about RCA 20F510TD 20 in. TV/DVD Combo
My tv displays the script of programs in white on black type at either the top or bottom, making it difficult to view the entire screen. How do I turn this 'feature' off?

The problem is most likely in the vertical circuit, possibly the vertical IC itself or one of the feeder caps in that circuit. Could be possible poor solder connections on the IC also. Is the problem intermittent? There are a number of common problems with this unit effecting the following parts: Dp027 (27v Zener) P/N 244835 Tp022 (Bc648) P/N 198743 Tp025 (Bc558) Ip001 P/N 257786 Ip050 Ic Voltage Regulator , Zener Diode With 3 Legs Looks Like Diode. Ip030 263567 Dp057 232662 Tp052 198743 Tp020 (2sk2842) P/N 263692 Tp023 (2sc8550) P/N 257827 Dp025 244870 This is an ITC008 chassis built in mexico and the problem you're describing should be an inexpensive repair - but my downside opinion is that with this particular unit you could expect the next problem in about one to two years. Being a certified technician there are few TV's that I would tell a customer to walk away from if they were considering a purchase - but this is one of them. I'm sorry for such a negative review, please don't take it out on my rating for this solution. But if you have it repaired take it in yourself and save a few bucks - and ask the shop to save all the old parts for you. Good Luck Bill

If the entire screen is curved, and it is not taking the whole screen, then you have a vertical deflection problem.
If the colors are double and do not match, with lines of different colors around pictures , then you have a convergence problem, often caused by a faulty convergence board.
The curving effect can be a side effect of bad convergence, or you may have both problems at once.
Unless you are a TV repairer yourself, better calling technical support. Usually you can ring the number listed on the owner manual.

Tips for a great answer:
SAP (Second Audio Program) (for analog channels only) Plays the
program's audio in a second language, if one is available. The TV displays
the word SAP in the channel banner when you tune to a program that is
broadcast with SAP information. SAP audio is broadcast in mono. SAP is also
used to broadcast a program's audio with descriptions of the video for the
visually impaired. Press the right arrow button to turn SAP on or off.
