    My Samsung TV puts up a black square on the lower half of the screen (about 60% is covered), when I'm on the Food Channel. The black square has some numbers and letters on the top left, but nothing than that otherwise.

    I don't have any parental blocks on the cable, and I can't find that there is any on the TV. How do I get rid of this square? Also, it just popped up for no reason inexplicably. I was able to watch the Food Channel uninhibited for a year or so, before this started happening.

    I start a DVD ie. Marty, press play and I get a perfect square black out on the screen(border is equa distant all around) leaving outer border area visible . This does not happen with any other DVDs...TV is OK and player is OK.

I had the same problem once with my RCA television. It only happened on certain channels and didn't happen during commercial breaks. If I adjusted the volume on the tv the box went away, but came back shortly after. The problem ended up being some malfunction in the closed captioning. I turned it all off and changed the CC settings and never had the problem again.

The black square in the middle is caused by the closed caption being on in text mode. Go into your menu and turn off closed caption.

I just move to a new apartment. When I connected my 13 inch Panasonic TV with built in vedio, a black screen covered almost half of the screen. When I change channels the screen is clear for appx. 3 minutes, then the black square appears on the screen, blocking half of the picture. The picture and sound is perfect. Please tell me what you think is my problem. This is my kitchen TV.

Thank you,

If your monitor has a power or the ower LEd is on then the inverter board causes your monitor to turn black-out, you need to replace it (^_^)

Philips 60PP9200D went black and white.


Hi , it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.Here's how your tv works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLLHnQ4y-wo Basically there's 3 LCD chips that create the colors and image by blending together.When these chips start to melt you will get those blue spots, pixelation ,black and white picture,even vertical lines.You will need to replace the light engine. Have a blessed one!

Mitsubishi wd52525 problems


i have thought about this since you first posted it. if the demo is good then the light engine is ok. it sounds like a problem in the chassis. probably on the DM and the terminal board. to repair the chassis would cost about $250.00 plus shipping.
