DX-R20TR 20" Round TV/DVD Combo

Hi: My TV is now a few month's old. A black rectangle has started "popping up" over the regular screen. It blocks most of the screen. It does not matter what channel I am currently viewing. When I change the channel, the black rectangle goes away. It could stay off for the entire time I am watching TV, or, even an hour or so later "pop up" again.

I have to admit I have hit different buttons on the remote trying to turn the TV off, in the dark, while half asleep. Did I hit a wrong button?

thanks

This is exactly what was wrong with my tv. Unfortunately, I wasn't notified that a solution had been posted. I finally found someone who knew what was going on and they told me to turn off the closed captions. I haven't had the black box since - I just wish I'd been notified that someone had posted a solution.

I'm guessing its the "CC", closed captioning. You have to turn it off, it's either in your menu or you have a button the remote saying either, Text or CC.

I have a 19'' polaroid tv dvd combo that will not power on at all and it is just a few months old.


If only a few months old it should be in warranty? If a 19 inch it may not be cost effective to repair if you have to pay to get it fixed.

TV is about 1 year old. Started yesterday having a black rectangle in the middle of the screen. Can press any button and it goes away but come's back in just a few seconds. Tv is a Element ELCHS321


Hi,
most times a black rectangle pops up when closed captioning is on. sometimes there will be gibberish in it sometimes not. See if you have button on remote labeled "CC" . Also if you have a cable or sat box make sure closed captioning is switched off there too.

I have a DYNEX DX-R20TR, is this tv digital ready?


Hi dlcase777,
Good news, your TV has both Digital and analog tuners. You will only need an antenna to recieve digital OTA (over the air) signals.
I have provided a link for information on antenna types and the channels you will be able to recieve.

Black screen after 1-2 minutes.


Hi, I just fixed one I bought on eBay with the same problem. My problem was caused by the screen backlight inverter. Fortunately I had one from another TV I bought last year on eBay. The repair only took about 15 minutes. Your best bet is to contact Funai Corp. and really complain even if it is out of warranty. They make Emerson, Funai, Symphonic and Sylvania and all the parts inside are the same (from the same years). If that don't work look on eBay for one with a broken screen or some other damage, call your local dealer and see if they have the inverter from a broken TV or ask around. We have a freecycle group in Michigan that recycles things rather than throw them in landfills you may have one in your state too !
Good Luck,
