    I have a Toshiba 19" TV -- I get the same black box whenever a live sports broadast is on. It goes away for about 10 seconds when I click the volumen button on the remote.

    I have the same problem on my Panasonic Cinemavision projection screen. The black box does not appear using the DVD or on certain channels. It happens to appear on the channel that I want to watch of course.

Black box in middle of screen--The closed caption feature was enabled. Turned it off, and the TV is back in working order! :)

I had this problem as well. call the company. I had to press a button three times and when i did that, I no longer had the problem. I dont' remember the button but call and they will tell you.

Black screen with sound. we replaced the lamp but screen is still black.


Hi,do you hear any strange noises? If you hear clicking or like wanting to turn on it could be the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast.Here's the instructions to replace it :http://www.fixyourdlp.com/guides/samsung/bp47-00033a.php Hi,If your tv is a dlp you might be experimenting a color wheel problem.The color wheel is a rotating disc that has a gamma of colors it spins at high rpms.The light of the lamp goes through it to create the colors on your tv.When it starts to go bad you will get color distortion ,black and white picture and sometimes you will hear humming noises. Also make sure everything is properly closed (door cover) if it's not properly shut it won't be able to light the lamp.Have a bless one!

Toshiba 52hm84 DLP-HDMI Component has been compromised?


This is a wild guess, but I believe that you are being **** by the movie industry. The HDMI protocol includes a form of DRM (Digital Rights Management) for high resolution content called: High Bandwidth Digital Content Protection Basically this means that the media (disk or broadcast) instructs the player (in your case the cable box) to insist that any downstream devices (your TV) is industry and DRM compliant. Specifically this evil protection scheme is designed to plug the analog hole and make it impossible for you to record or copy the movie by using an analog output from your TV. This even restricts the size of the TV you can play the movie on, thus preventing pubs and bars from displaying the content on big screen TVs without paying royalties. The message means that the manufacturer of your TV has refused to toe the industry line. 1984 Anyone ? Martin

Toshiba 52hm84


It's either signal board or light engine and unless you're really pretty good at electronics neither one is something you should tackle. I do have the service manual for this unit and I would be glad to send it.. Just drop me an email premtech@willapabay.org and make sure you include the model number as well as what it is you need.. I get almost 650 emails a day so it's really hard to remember who's email goes with what problem. :) Good Luck Bill
