Question about Toshiba 32A33 32" TV

Black box showing up in center of tv

I have a toshiba tv that is only a few years old and it has started to show a black box in the center of the tv that comes and goes. It covers most of the tv but there is about a 3 inch border of the screen that still shows. The sound is fine and if you turn the channel it stays fine for a few minutes then the black box appears again. If you turn the volume higher or lower the black box disappears for a few minutes then returns.

TV shows only about a one inch wide horizontal strip in middle of screen, the rest is black. It actually looks like it is showing what is supposed to be at the very bottom of the screen but is perfectly...


In the old days that meant that your "flyback transformer" went bad and needed to be replaced.

Now a days it might be cheaper to just buy a new TV set - especially if it's over ten years old. Give it to Goodwill and see if one of their workers can fix it for resale to lower income folks..

Toshiba 32AF45 Black Rectangle Issue


go into your menu and find closed caption, someone has accidently set the closed caption mode to text, when the on screen display of channel or volume goes away the box appears. turn off the closed caption feature or switch it to something other than "text" mode, and your box will go away.

Black Box


You have inadvertently activated one of the closed-caption modes called T1 or Text 1. Find out how to turn the closed-captioning off and on and you'll be able to turn this off.

Laptop monitor goes black


If you're working on the computer when that happens, it's not probably a power setting. Try to update your BIOS to the most current version at the toshiba support website (support.toshiba.com) & see what happens. Fixes the issue most of the time

I hope this helps.
