Hey Pearl, I have the banner across the bottom of my tv and I want it gone...

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model number of your TV? How old is it?

The model number is ***** it's a Hitachi 40" and I've had it about 3 years...

The tv menu does work... yes...

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue with your LA40A205E? What happened right before this?

It happened when I first got the TB and somehow, I picked up and fixed it... This time it has been about 24 hrs...

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?

That's it, thank you...

Hi and welcome to JustAnswer; an independent site with members providing product information, repair tips and technical assistance as a form of paid Q & A service.
My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you with your question regarding your "...banner across the bottom..."

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 5 months ago

Initially, is the TV directly connected to an antenna or cable feed?
Or is there a cable box or even a satellite receiver?
Or some other device/s?

Is the "...banner across the bottom..." consistently shown with any source?

What exactly is displayed in this banner?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
The banner shows blocks that say 1080p, Dolby digital, on/off timer, HDMI, Eco, and dynamic backlight...
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 4 months ago

Appreciate the additional information.

Using the original remote control, press the DISPLAY button to turn off the current information shown at the bottom of the screen.

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Hey Louie, when I press the display button, there's no option to turn off anything...
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 4 months ago

Pressing the DISPLAY button toggles this banner of/off. Try pressing a couple of times.

Also consider checking the remote.

There is a partial test to confirm if the remote is working or not. With fresh batteries correctly installed, point the remote towards the lens of an active digital camera. For every press of any/all button(s) on the remote (particularly the DISPLAY button), there should be a bright light that would register on the LCD screen of the camera. No light, no infrared transmission from the remote; remote most likely faulty.
Perhaps the video HERE may shed insight.
