Toshiba cf3572b display issue

The picture that is displayed is too large for the viewing screen. Any text that should normally show on the top, bottom or edge of the screen only partially displays. If I play a DVD that is recorded in letterbox mode will display correctly. I have looked through the manual and tried everything that is supposed to change picture settings with no success. I have tried the Reset button and unplugging it overnight. Again, no success.

SOURCE: Video will not turn off; "I2C-BUS STOP MODE" error at power up

Nope a very easy problem .. What it is is the relay is stuck on or closed so when you plug in the set the power comes up But the micro hasent told the rest of the set to work yet. So when you hit the power button. its just like you hit the power and it activated the relay and the rest of the set. Now in some rare occasions the driver transistor for the relay was shorted But most of the time its the contacts that weild shut, but you cant just clean them as it will work for a while, but in a month or so you will be in the smame boat. But if you not a tech this repair shouldnt cost you to much because if your not an experienced tech you can not only cause harn to the set but also you yourself BE CAREFULL and take the set to a pro!!!! Good Luck

Your model has a maximum resolution of 720p. What you might want to do is make sure that both your cable/sat box and game stations are outputting at no more than 720 resolution. It's easy to assume that all HDTVs may accept a higher signal, and while they might, some of the scene changes or handshakes may make that operation cause the symptoms you describe.

Sounds like your closed caption may be on and here is how to turn it off..

1. Press the menu button until you get to the "SPECIAL" menu.
2. Make sure that Closed Caption and CC on mute are both set to OFF.

This should make that black box go away...

Good Luck and please rate this solution...

How do I get closed captioning on a Samsung TV model TXJ2754?


Your TV displays the closed captions that are broadcast with some

television shows. These captions are usually subtitles for the hearing

impaired or language translations. All VCRs record the closed caption

signal and most pre-recorded commercial video tapes provide closed

captions. Check for the closed caption symbol in your television

schedule and on the tape's packaging: .

1 Press MENU repeatedly until you see the Setup menu. Press CH
to select "Caption."

2 Press VOL+ to open the Closed Caption menu.

3 Press VOL + to turn closed captioning on.

Misspellings and odd characters can occur in captioning. Also, there may be a

captioning delay after changing channels. Neither situation is a TV malfunction.

4 Press CH to highlight "Mode." Press - VOL or VOL + to choose

"Capt." (captions) or "Text." In caption mode, captions appear and

cover a small portion of the picture. In text mode, information unrelated

to the program, such as news reports, are displayed and
often cover a large portion of the screen.

5 If you wish, use CH , CH , or VOL + to change the captioning

channel or field. Then, press DISPLAY to return to normal viewing.

 Different channels and fields display different information, such as additional
languages or supplemental information

Black screen

Possible causes
  • Your TV is not receiving or displaying the signal from your DIRECTV® Receiver.
  • Your receiver has correct guide information, but is not processing video correctly.
  • You are viewing a channel where an upcoming sporting or special event is scheduled or has recently ended.

  • Turn TV off and on.
  • Make sure light on front panel of receiver is lit.
  • Press the "TV/DSS" button on the remote control or front panel of the receiver (not all receivers have this option).
  • Reset the receiver by unplugging the power cord for 15 seconds.
  • Check all cable connections between the dish, receiver and TV.

If the picture is black, but the program title and description display in a banner the top of the screen:
  • If the problem is only occurring on a few channels, check the detailed description of the program through the on–screen guide on those channels. Often, we display a blank screen with a banner before and after a high–profile event to alert customers about the event.
  • Reset the receiver by turning off and unplugging the power cord for 15 seconds.
  • Run a signal meter test to check your signal strength (press "menu" and look under "setup" or "installation").

If your signal strength is below 70 (or below 60 on HD receivers) in clear weather on transponders 1 and 2, see our troubleshooting steps for "Searching for satellite signal. Please stand by." You may see zero strength on transponders 4, 12, 18, 20, 26 and 28. This is normal in many areas. Your system manual shows how to run cables and point your dish.
