Question about Hitachi 51F500 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Blacked-out box covering 75% of screen

I've had the TV for 5 years now, and just recently, a black box appears.
It's not all the time. Just certain channels or DVDs... If I change the channel, the box goes away. If I go back to the original channel, the black box reappears in 5 seconds.

Any ideas or thoughts?

Replaced TY-LA1000 Lamp and now a black box across the picture, TV is PT-50LC14


Check in main menu (set and box if using one) under closed captions--one of the settings is TEXT--black box will appear in middle of screen and certain channels--with the remote turn text off.

Issue with our Toshiba 50H82 - overnight it has stopped playing DVD's properly - a solid black rectangle obliterates 75% of the screen. Any idea?


Hi,
Do you see same solid black box in all inputs or just in dvd picture?
If solid box appears only with dvd picture then its generated by dvd player, check dvd player Menu and turn off any subtitle settings.
And if solid black rectangular appears in all inputs of TV like cable etc then check Close Caption feature in TV and turn off CC function.
Hope this will solve your TV problem.
Thanks.

Samsung plasma TV, half screen is blacked out


Well, as per my last posting, I thought I would share. The problem of the bottom half of my 42 inch Samsung Plasma blacked out - meant a trip to the local TV repair shop. I have to say, they were great. I took it in and they were able to fix it after replacing a part - had my TV back in about a week. Cost was approx. $300. This was well worth it, considering how much I had paid for this TV only a few years ago. I had the repair done last month and so far, it's been great. Sorry, but I can't remember the name of the part.

Black box showing up while viewing DVDs


This sound like a problem with the Closed Caption, on many sets if the C.C. is set to text a black box apears, and since it only happens on DVD you might look at the DVD menu and see if it has this Text featcher in the Closed Caption menu and turn it off
