Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Hitachi rear projection HDTV has a black box that sometimes appears in center of screen. It doesn't take up the entire screen and it dissapears when i move the volume or call up a menu, then comes back when the TV graphics dissapear. It happens only on some channels and it happened with the cable box and now still happens with an antenna. Thanks for any info.

If it is a large box in the middle of the screen it is for TEXT. With the remote or front controls go into the customer menu and find the Closed caption option----you will most likely find that TEXT 1 is highlighted---simply select CC1 (closed caption if you want that) or if one of the choices is OFF select that.

The Text feature was built into many sets but to my knowledge never really got used---the idea was books and other things could be broadcast and read with this feature on screen.

Let me know what happens and if you have any questions reply to me here---I am here to help people.

Yellowing on Hitachi 65T500 screen


Go to main menu, turn color all the way off to see if you have perfect black and white. If you still have yellow, it's in the focus block or convergence circuit, If it's perfect black and white then it's going to be in yc chroma luminence circuit.
