Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I am getting a dark/black square (rather rectangle) on my display. This is a 65inch rear projection Mitsubishi. This blocks 90% of the TV screen. I can get rid of it if I press on the FORMAT button on the remote. How can I get rid of it permanently? Thanks

Red Lines through picture when screen is dark, back ground has a red tint. On my 48 "Sony Rear Projection" TV


You can try adjusting the Red color output. (Very touchy adjustment)

If you take off the front cover/speaker cover, there should be a access panel. Behind that, there should be a small square black box with 6 screws on it. This is the focus block. (At least this is where most of them are located)

It sounds more like you may need less red in the mix. There is a screw for each color. R, G, and B. Do not mess with the focus screws, just the ones labeled 'SCREEN.'

Go to an unused input where the screen should be dark. Barely turn the red down in a dark room so that the red spot is at the same level as the Blue and Green.

Use an insulated screwdriver and DO NOT TOUCH the focus block and ESPECIALLY NOT the back of it.
Very HIGH VOLTAGE. I found that out the hard way.

Do not turn any of these up too high or damage may occur and the TV may detect a short and shut off.

I have found that if the three colors are adjusted in a dark room to where the 3 color spots (R/G/B) are just barely visible on the screen at equal levels, there is a pretty good color balance.

I hope this helps! Just be careful.

Mitsubishi tv; black & wht rectangles only on screen.


Bad capacitors and probably a surface-mount fuse on the Formatter board.
There will probably be bad caps on all five boards within the chassis.

Sounds like you have the TV in the "close caption " mode (text), turn off. 2. Check batteries and the mode the remote is in; eg TV, VCR, Cable & ect. Good Luck, big IRISH.

62' Mitsubishi WD-62525 little black and white squares instead of picture but I have sound


Mitsubishi list this problem and has a solution of replacing several small surface mounted caps and diodes. we have tried this repair 5 times and only successfully done it once. so replacing what is called the formatter board part # 930B924002 for around $ 350.00 usually repairs this type of failure, However changing this board is a time consuming thing and takes a lot of Patience. It is buried deep in the set and several other board have to be removed just to get to it
