Shadow Box in top Right Corner with number 2 in it won't turn off

I have a Panasonic TH-50PZ85U. I have a Shadow Box about 3 by 3 inches with the number 2 in the middle of it. It only shows up on the HDMI 1 output, and is not related to the cable box, as it shows up with only the TV on. It is not burn in. I have talked to the help desk at Panasonic, and they do not have any solutions at this time. Does anyone know how to remove this?

    I have the same problem but my TV is a Samsung HPS 5053. We have Time Warner Cable, and our cable box is in a TV stand below the TV.

    I figured it out soon after my post, but solution #1 is correct. I ended up doing almost the same thing.

I have the tTH-46PZ .I had a shadow box with a 2 in it also.unplug your hdmi cable from the cable box.Reboot your cable box.When it is done rebooting plug the cable in and turn your tv on.It should be fine.For some reason if you leave the tv on and the hdmi cable plugged in this happens.i tryed rebooting with the cable in and it stays there.If you do it this way the 2 will go away.

Black box please wait corner of screen


Check whether closed caption function is ON or not. If it is PN, make it OFF. Refer the user manual to your TV for details. If you do not have its user manual with you now, click here to download it.

Following a audible pop TH 50PZ85U will not power on.


Most common thing to happen is a capacitor went bad on one of the circuit boards making the loud POP sound. Odds are it's on the Power Supply Board if the TV isn't showing power at all. The picture below what a bad capacitor looks like.

They range from different sizes and color. Swollen, deformed, and raised top is the thing to look for.

Solder in a new capacitor on the board or replace the whole circuit board.
