Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

I have a RDVR90VE Sylvania combo VCR/DVD player/recorder. It is presently set up with a CT-27HL14 Panasonic HDTV. When playing the VCR the picture comes through beautifully.

Hi -\015\012
\015\012
\015\012I hope you read my other message. You need to make sure closed captions / subtitles are switched off on both the your TV and the DVD/VCR. I'd suggest starting with the Panasonic TV.\015\012
\015\012
\015\0121. Switch on the TV\015\012
\015\0122. Press the ACTION button (in the center of the VOL and CH buttons) to open the menu\015\012
\015\0123. Press VOL+ repeatedly to move across to the SETUP menu (the box icon)\015\012
\015\0124. Use the CHANNEL DOWN button to enter the sub-menu and keep pressing it until CC ON MUTE is highlighted\015\012
\015\0125. Use the VOL+/- buttons to set CC ON MUTE to NO\015\012
\015\0126. Press CHANNEL DOWN once to highlight CC MODE\015\012
\015\0127. Use the VOL+/- buttons to set CC MODE to OFF\015\012
\015\0128. Press the ACTION button repeatedly until you are back at the main menu\015\012
\015\0129. Press CHANNEL UP to exit the menu\015\012
\015\012
\015\012Test the DVD player again after doing this. If you still have the black box, you need to switch off the closed-captions (subtitles) on the DVD/VCR as well.\015\012
\015\012
\015\0121. Switch on the TV and DVD/VCR\015\012
\015\0122. Set the TV to the input you use for watching DVD/VCR\015\012
\015\0123. Press the SETUP key on the Sylvania remote\015\012
\015\0124. Use the LEFT/RIGHT arrow keys to highlight the SETUP box then press ENTER\015\012
\015\0125. Use the LEFT/RIGHT arrow keys to highlight the PLAYBACK box then press ENTER\015\012
\015\0126. Use the DOWN arrow key to highlight SUBTITLE LANGUAGE then press ENTER\015\012
\015\0127. Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to highlight OFF then press ENTER\015\012
\015\0128. Press the SETUP button to close the on-screen display\015\012
\015\0129. Play a disc to test.\015\012
\015\012
\015\012This should solve your black box problem. If it doesn't, please let me know. You can reply to me by clicking on "Add a Comment" below your question.\015\012

After watching for about 10 to 20 minutes the tv does something weird like your'e pressing the input button. It keeps switching from tv to vidio or whatever else happens when you press the input button. When the screen keeps switching like that it just goes back and forth so your picture keeps coming on for a second and then back off. If you try to press the input button to fix it nothing happens.

Hi, I purchased a Sony Bravia model #KDL-52S4100 two years ago. About 7 months ago when the TV was turned on there was no picture for 15 minutes or so, then when you turn it off and on again half a picture will show with larger images on the right hand side of the screen. Other times there is half a picture and then when you turn it off it will come on with a full screen picture. Once it warms up the picture is fine. Is there any inexpensive solutions here? Thanks for any help you can provide.

I have a 22 inch AOC Envision LCD TV. When I first turn it on, only the top half of the screen displays picture while the bottom half is a gray/black color. If I wait about ten minutes or if I tap on the back of the TV, the picture is completely restored and I can watch everything just fine. However, it is pretty annoying to wait for the picture to come back. Since the picture does come back after a while and looks fine, I don't think I have a broken backlight or anything like that.

On my HD1080 Mitsubishi projection flat screen the picture is bowed on top and bottem and it look as if the projectors themselves are offset, but the picture is clearer as you come toward the center.
