Question about Astar LTV-20SD 20 in. EDTV-Ready LCD TV/DVD Combo

1 Answer

On my Sharp LCD TV a black empty box appears

How do I get rid of it? I can push any other button on the control and it will disappear for a second or two. A large black box blocks most of the screen, leaving a narrow margin of picture on the top and bottom and sides
(on Astar LTV-205D).

You will need to find the close caption feature in the menu adjustments and turn it OFF. You should do it for all the individual channels that have it activated.

Black cloud like fogged on Sharp Aquos 37"tv


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

I have a Sharp AQUOS LC-32D47UA 32", black box


Press the cc button on your remote control. You want cc to be off. Play around with the cc button to become comfortable. Press it over and over again. Observed that a different closed captioning option appears on your screen each time you press the cc button. Now press cc and when it says cc off do not press the button anymore.

Black box in center of screen


You have closed captioning on and in 'text' mode. Can be either in TV menu settings, a button on the TV remote, or set-up in a set top(cable/SAT) box.

Black box appears on tv screen then disappears. sometimes the box has letters in it. it last for a few seconds then it goes away


That sounds like a text box. Press the cc button and keep pressing it. You will see different closed captions options on your screen each time you press the button. Finally when it says cc off stop pressing the button and you should no longer get the black box. If you have a cable box connected you may also have to disable the captioning on it.
