If you're handy with a screwdriver and aren't afraid to take the back off the TV, then go to this website to get parts. Mainly the power supply board. It's way cheaper that a new TV or a service call +repair bills.

This is not a user fault. Can be the main board or power supply fault. You will have to try to verify. May pay to replace the set of out of warranty.

My parent's JVC did this as well. It took us a little while to solve it (and through searching for how to fix it, found this post).

Using the JVC's remote control, we pushed the C.C. (closed caption) button and cycled to the "OFF" setting. That fixed it. Using the TV's front panel setting did not fix the issue, we had to use the remote control.

Note: the "text" CC setting re-displays the black box.

Locked tv


You need to buy a remote for that TV. They're available online for around $39. This site has them in stock, but you can shop around to be sure its a good price. When you receive it, turn on your TV and press menu on the remote and turn off child lock. Click the Remote here:

Black box appears on tv screen


Check to see that you don't have any channel locks or parental parental permission measures deployed. If so remove them, this includes V-Chip, and Parental lock out on the remote, and check your TVs menu items. What channel are being affected by this problem? Give channel number and channel type.

Thank you,

Screen goes black after unit is turned on.


Contacted Mitsubishi directly and found out that QV9 on the remote control resets to factory defaults, clearing the Parental lock out someone had put in place. The TV is in a Retirement Home and some of the folks are sneaky about wanting to control the TV in their own fashion. We will be watching the remote a bit closer now!

Tv turns off and on, off and on off and on...


It sounds like there is a possiblity that something is failing in the power supplie or the scan circuits. This can be anything from a failing component(s) to a cold solder connection.

I also found with the RCA sets that when there are intermittant failures they are very sensitive to have their EPROM programing go corrupted. This is something that only the RCA factory service rep, or a TV shop who has the knowledge about it, has the setup, and can re-program it.

Black Mess


Hi,

Most settings and configurations except the Parental Lock could be reverted to factory default by doing a full hard reset. This is done by simply unplugging the unit from the mains for a couple of hours (or overnight preferably). If done and the system/TV will do a reset, all your settings (color, brightness, program selection) will be back to normal (or factory default).

Most parental Locks works with a code or password. Unfortunately, often this requires the use of the original remote that came with the TV.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I dont know the parental code and my color is messed up how do i fix it.


If you forgot your password for this feature, press the following buttons on the remote, one at a time. (Note: You must be in the password entry screen) Press, Mute, Display,Clear and Reset, this unlocks parental controls and you can now re-enter a new password.
OR TRY THIS..
Press and hold Menu on the TV AND volume down on the remote for 3 seconds. Nothing will appear on the screen, and the Parental Controls will unlock, and you can re-enter a new password with the LOCK PARENTAL CONTROLS
