How do I expand my Tv screen


If the physical size of your screen is 4:3 the only thing it can show is a compressed version. The screen is physically not able to show the true 16:9 version. The true 16:9 HD signal has been developed to show on a screen that is twice as wide as it is long or 16:9 ratio. Your screen is almost square or 4:3 ratio. I hope this helps. Thanks for using fixya.

Black square


hmmm...the black square syndrome..sounds like the picture in picture settings are unhappy..check those, to see if maybe it's on some sort of timer, and accessing a non channel(which might explain the black square).

Black box showing up while viewing DVDs


This sound like a problem with the Closed Caption, on many sets if the C.C. is set to text a black box apears, and since it only happens on DVD you might look at the DVD menu and see if it has this Text featcher in the Closed Caption menu and turn it off

It's definitely not convergence. Sounds like more of a problem in the horizontal section.

Black square covering up most of the screen


Try goeing into your Menu and see if you have the closed Caption on that will produce a black box on the screen if you have the owners manual look in there,if you don't have it you can go on line and download it from the manufactures website under Downloads Good luck Walter Grzybowski
