Question about Hitachi 43UWX10B 43" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Black square in the middle of my viewing screen.

I have a large black square in the middle of my viewing screen. The broadcast I can see going on behind this black square. It seems to go away during commercials. Sometimes it carries on all channels and both antennas. I have a tivo, Dvd player, Cable box, Hdtv cable box connected to the tv. I've had all this working for years now. I think I must had hit a button on the remote or something. Any ideas?

Re: Black square in the middle of my viewing screen.

You have accendly turned on closed caption. the closed caption you have tured on is not the normal closed caption we are used to . it is called colsed caption text. either on your remote or in you manu, find the way to turn off cc & you should work ok. good luck.

I have a vs-60609 60"

Sounds like a Picture in Picture screen popping up, but if you do not have a signal from another tuner, it will be blank.

Try hitting the PIP button on your remote to see if it turns it off and on.
Plus go into the tv menu and find the PIP settings.

Black square in middle of picture

your captioning or "text" is on. usually inside the tv menu. if not its your cable or dish box has captioning on. black box usually means its in text mode instead of CC thus the black box rather than text

Hello MCNJC,
Get your remote and go to the close caption in the menu or the CC button on the remote. Set the close caption to off, or set it to CC1 to see close caption. NEVER set it to TEXT 1 or any TEXT at all.

Best regards

Black square

Black square in the middle could be closed captioning. Light engine is approx. $700 to $1000 for the parts alone. Time consuming job to change - 2 hours - so expect a hefty labor charge as well.
