Hello, I'm sorry to yell you that the lcd display (screen) is bad. Usually one side looks close to normal, and the other is dark and the picture drags and looks smeared. The cost to replace the lcd display is more than you can buy another set for, sorry. thanks, Terry
The LCD display panel is bad. That cannot be repaired. The price of a new or possily a used one will cost as much as a new set. I suggest watching it till you can't stand it anymore then toss it out and look for a new set.
When you say the screen is dark, do you mean that the picture is still faintly visible or is the left side black with a sharp edge between the black and the visible picture?
If the screen is dark with a faintly visible picture then you have a faulty backlight. This could be due to the inverter board, which can be repaired or replaced, or it could be the CCFL tube which is a bit harder to replace.
If the left side is completely black with a sharp edge then the LCD itself is faulty and may require replacing.
In any case, any of the problems listed above should only be repaired by a competant electronics engineer.
Based on the symptoms you are describing it seems like your T-Con board is going bad. This board is located on top of the panel and its main function is to make the pixels properly display on the screen. When this board goes out you can experience a few things and normally red or blue spots in the dark areas is one of them.
I purchased Craig CLC501 from CVS and I am very satisfied. The picture and sound are great. There are many adjustments through a menu but you also can change settings with dedicated buttons on the remote. You can add and delete channels for easy channel surfing. The tuner does a good job picking up week signals with an antenna. It has a QAM tuner for HD channels on cable systems. The inputs on the rear are HDMI, YPbPr, S-VIDEO, VIDEO, RCA AUDIO R/L, PCAUDIO, VGA Port. It has a headset output jack that can be used for external speakers. The 12 volt input accepts the universal power supply for use in an auto.
Go into the customer menu and find the "closed captions" heading. Within the closed caption you will find "TEXT". If you turn off closed captions or the text, whichever you menu lets you do, your rectangle will go away. Hope this helps
