Question about V, Inc. VIZIO RP56 Rear Projection Television

Open Question

Black box on TV Screen.

We have an older tv that works perfectly except when "The Today Show" is on. As soon as the program begins at 7:00 a.m., the screen of our tv gets a large black box on it covering almost the entire screen. The audio still works. When "The Today Show" is over, the black box goes away. Sometimes there is jibberish that is typed at the top of the box. What could this be? M

    I have the same problem. The only thing that I've tried that "fixes" it is turning it on and off. ...I'm sure that is not the best fix for the problem, but is a temporary fix.

Black boxes on a few TV channels - connected to DIRECTV


Turn off closed-captioning. You'll find it's set for "text" right now, probably from hitting a button on the remote without realizing it. The set is blanking the screen for the text which doesn't show up. (In your case sometimes it does. You're the first person who's ever seen anything that I've responded to!) On channels and programs where captioning isn't being sent the box doesn't show up, so you don't know you have the trouble.

Black/Green Distortion - Picture Quality - Wharfedale


This is no solution but a point in a probable direction.

A tech guy told me ALL the LCDs they have seen in their repair shop have "swollen" capacitors, this is due to voltage instability. Lowering the internal voltage regulator and replacing the swollen capacitors (which eliminate noise) apparently restores the LCD to new working quality. Without actually "seeing" my problem the tech said that should repair it. I have not tried this yet but eventually will begin that way.
