Hitachi Ultrascan HD Black square question?

Me and my husband just bought this tv a few months ago. We are now getting a perfect black square that almost covers the whole tv. And it is like it has a mind of its own. It does it on certian channels and only when shows are on and not on local commercials. It is really strange. Its like it does it when it wants too. Here are some pics. Thanks, Cassie

It sounds ( and looks ) exactly like a form of Close Captioning . One of the options for close captioning will put a full size block just like that on your screen . Though I have never seen text in it , thats what it is . Go into the menus and find the CC and turn it off.

If that black box is generated by Tv, it should be there all the time, like on cable, av input etc.
as you said its not always, so cable top box is suspected which can generate such box as well.
I would suggest when you see that box in tv reception, simply play dvd player and check is that box still appears on dvd input? I hope black box wont appear in playback of dvd player.
Need further help, please let me know.

Tv screen has a red/orange glow in the middle -should be black


I have the exact same problem. I had purchased a new lamp shortly after the warranty expired and never needed to use it. I decided to install it today to see if that helped with the red glow. No difference. Someone else posted that when the TV is moved (we just moved from Canada to the US) it can misalign or damage some component. Still trying to figure out what that is...probably cost more to fix that a new TV!!!

you do not have a digital tuner if that is what you mean. if you have a cable box you do not need to worry about this stuff but if you want to pick up over the air signals sometime next year you will need some type of hd to sd converter

Vizio GV42L LCD TV screen black when turn TV on first time


If you are using a set top box this might be caused by turnig the box on at the same tie as you turn the tv on or slightly after you turn the tv on.  If you are using compnent or HDMI inputs the set needs to see the signal as it is turned on to know what formt the signal is in.
