Question about Panasonic DVD-A310 DVD Player
I have had this dvd-a310 player for a long time and it has worked fine but yesterday i put in a dvd and this huge black box appeared in the lower center of the screen. also dvds skip around when playing. the black box does not disappear even when there is no dvd in the player. any suggestions?

This is for code f489 as well as f498 F498 means a problem with flash eprom IC; meaning that unit is unable to read the basic instructions from the eprom IC. Can be cuased by several; may simply be a "bad connection issue" at the eprom Ic or somwhere in the Bus line--defective Ic or corrupted information which may or may not be recovered with a "service recovery" disc.(not an end user procedure) First step; try resoldering Eprom ic being careful not to bridge pins. second would be to take the unit to a AUTHORIZED ONLY repair shop for a firmware or eeprom update. Good Luck

Getting a new one is about all you can do in this case. A repair for this type of problem would likely cost more than the replacement.
