Depending on the brand and model, most newer LCD sets do not have this issue.

What are called direct view sets with a glass picture tube do have this kind of issue and it is called pincussion in most cases. It in those sets is part of the width circuit and is there so things are straight from top to bottom.

With no brand or model I can not tell you much more.

Half screen normal , other half blackened for 20-30 minutes, before turns normal. Recently getting longer to get normal screen and left side stays black(about 2" wide)

sounds like a bad smps or bad display. I would try the smps, but if that doesn't do it the display costs as much as the tv most likely.

There are two black boxes on each side of my tv screen. How do i get rid of these boxes?

Watch some HD or other 16:9 programming. If you have pillarboxes on the sides it is likely that you are watching a 4:3 program that doesn't fit your TV's screen. When people upgrade from a "regular" TV to a "widescreen" model they changed the shape of the TV but didn't change the shape of 60+ years of TV programming, the only ways to force the "square peg" to fit the "rectangular hole" is to either chop off the top and bottom of the image or to stretch it. I highly recommend against either of these as "Stretch-O-Vision" is just wrong because it makes people look fat and turns car tires and other circles into short fat ovals.

While watching tv half the screen goes black

Download software from the Phillips web site. Use a usb flashdrive to transfer the download to the TV. This worked well for us and our picture is better than ever.

How do i install my dvd player into my hitachi tv x

You should have a scart socket at the rear of the TV & the DVD, this is a long black shaped connector which has a slant edge at one end. If you get yourself a scart lead & simply connect this from the DVD player into the TV & then select the appropriate AV source on the TV eg AV1 & this should give you the DVD playback.
