Shut off the close caption, the caption is is in text mode and needs to be changed to CC1. the remote may have a cc button on it push it until cc is off.

A black square pops up in the middle of the screen after awhile, what could be the problem ?


How big is this black square? Is it like 1/4 to 1/2 the size of the screen? If so, you probably have Closed-Captioning turned on, and turned on to TEXT mode. Either change it to CC1, or else turn it off, and your black square will go away!

Screen on LG goes to black right after turned on.


It looks as if the backlights are being switched off at start up, this will be due to a fault either with the inverter board or a fault with the screens backlights which would mean the screen needing replaced. Contact your repair centre to have an engineer give you an estimate on the cost of repair.

I had this problem on my 42" Philips. Just got it yesterday and worked fine on the tv stand. As soon as I mounted the TV to the wall via wall mount system, I had the exact same issue you did. Figured it out today.

The wall mount was putting pressure against the center of the back of the tv (tv set had a slightly rounded back plate, and the mount was a flat plate). As soon as I put spacers (part of the wall mount hardware set) between the wall mount braket and the tv so there was no contact except at the mounting holes, the tv worked fine.

My theory is the pressure pushed the tv back plate against some board components which caused them to overheat (no air flow); or put pressure on internal connectors. I dont know.

Hope this helps, may not apply to your situation.

Black box comes up on tv screen


The black box is a text box for closed captioning. Some stations send the signal which turns on the box while not actually broadcasting any text. Go into your setup menu and turn off closed captioning, or at least change it to a different mode. The easiest option is to restore factory presets.

Is this a HD channel? This is usually caused by a hiccup in the streaming of HD from the cable/sat company. How long has this been happening?

Black out screen


I had the same problem once with my RCA television. It only happened on certain channels and didn't happen during commercial breaks. If I adjusted the volume on the tv the box went away, but came back shortly after. The problem ended up being some malfunction in the closed captioning. I turned it all off and changed the CC settings and never had the problem again.
