LG GC990W VCR displays envelope icon on TV screen.

I keep seeing a small white envelope with an A on it on the right hand top corner of my TV screen. I suspect it has something to do with my vcr - I have an LG GC990W VCR. It only shows up on one channel and not on the others. Can anyone help with this? Thanks!

It's definitely your VCR that is causing the problem. Move your VCR, if you don't get any results you need to send it to repair.

SOURCE: TV Snow and Static Sound

Sound like its all cabled wrong So its from the source, (wall satalight Whatever ) to VCR in then VCR out to TV, Now when the VCR fires up it tunes the RF output to Chanel 4 and has a strong signal, that over rides just about every thing. Simply way to stop this is one of two ways, press the TV/VCR button on the VCR, or simply turn off the VCR to let the signal pass through.

Hi We have a envelope at the top right corner of our screen.. How do we get rid of it?


Your satellite or cable service has a message for you on your account. Depending on which service you have (DirecTV, Dish Network, etc.) the procedure will be slightly different. But a generic procedure is outlined below:

Using the remote provided by your television service provider, click on menu (might be system or something similar).

Once you are in the system menu, look for account services, messages or something similar to that (it maybe in a sub menu).

Look for messages, mail, or something similar and then read mail or inbox. Once you have read the message(s), the envelope will clear off of your TV.

How to replace both inner and outer tv screens ?


Relativity easy to do yourself, but better if you have some one to help, all you need is a Philips head screwdriver, and the replacement screens, the technical name for them are Lenticular Screen, and Fresnel, one is white, and the other is black.

You start by taking off the screws in the back of the the TV, there are screws along the top, both sides, and there are two on the the bottom right, and two on the bottom left, and there are three on the front by the power and channel and volume buttons. then grab one side and have your partner grab the other, and pull straight off.

IMPORTANT!!!!! DO NOT TOUCH THE WHITE SCREEN WITH YOUR BARE HANDS, IT IS COVERED WITH A POWDER AND CANNOT COME INTO CONTACT WITH ANY FLUIDS, INCLUDING THE OIL ON YOUR HANDS!

There are four bars that hold the screens in, one on top, bottom left and right. to remove the top, left and right you have to wiggle them loose after removing the screws.

The Black screen will go in first, make sure that the smooth side is what you will be looking at when you are done, the white screen will go right on top of it, the rough side of the white screen will meet with the rough side of the black screen.

then put the screen assembly back on, and replace screws.

I hope this helps, if you have any questions, let me know.

I have a sony kf-42sx3oou, i have just had the lamp replaced, since replacing it a few blue spots appeared in the top right corner but today a yellow line has appeared on bottom left hand corner, could you...


This problem was probably there before, but you only noticed with the new "Brighter" bulb.

This TV will require replacement of the LCD Prism unit.

This Prism blocks and allows colors so that the 3 LCD images may be mixed to produce the final image you see on the screen. When this becomes damaged or defective, it leaks colors (light). This Color Leakage apears as spots on the screens.

Where you see the spots is where the specific spot on the prism that is leaking light, the specific color that is leaking also.

This parts cost alone is normally $500 to $1000 dollars but is usually replaced under warranty. If out of warranty, I suggest living with it or selling it if out of warranty. Turn down the Brightness and it will not be as noticeable. I am sure you only see this with bright images.....like white backgrounds and such

Good luck.....

I have a 1985 Zenith Space Command Color TV. It has developed thin white lines at the top of the viewing screen. The rest of the screen is clear. Is it something small or am I looking at a new picture...


The picture tube is fine.
Those whites lines at the top of the screen are caused by a dry or leaky capacitor(s) nearby the vertical amplifier IC.
Let me know if you require further assistance.
