Question about Philips 60PP9202 60" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Black square covering up most of the screen

A black square, covering pretty much the entire screen - with the exception of a few inches around the edges, appears when 20-30 seconds after we turn the TV on. It disappears when we turn the TV off (even before the images all turns off, the black square disappears). It happens again pretty much every time we turn the TV off. We used to be able to fix it by turning it on and off a few times, but that does not work anymore. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you

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

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).

This could be part of the text mode, which has to do with the caption. Check and see if it's turned on.

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