Hi,

What I think is wrong is that you have accidentally turned on one of the closed caption options called "Text." This function of closed caption is practically never used. If it were operational, there would be text inside this black box.



Just go into the TV's menu, look at the Audio options, and turn Close Caption and/or Text off. That should fix it.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Will not show image on screen. only square in the middle of screen and a hand at the bottom


The canon S2 camera has a load of issues . First E 18 lens error,,, After alot of arguing with canon they fixed it for free. It is a known issue,they know about it and you have to fight with them. After that was "fixed" I had the black screen with the square in it , Its a chip that is defective from the manufacturer. , I sent it back again they fixed it for free once more.. Both times they say it was the optical assembly. I know they replaced it this second time because it is a different color. NOW,, I get the famed Change batteries no matter how many batteries you change, the lens is once again stuck out and once again I called Canon. they told me they would replace the camera. All these issues happened with in the last 8 months right after the warranty ended,. After some research it seem these cameras all fail after 2 yrs or less. Its a shame Canon is giving people such a hard time.. these are not cheap camera's,.. Good luck and be persistant they WILL fix it for you.. dont let them give you the sand in the lens or you dropped it,.. that seems to be their standard dialogue.

Amp burned


You might be able to have it fixed. Some amp companies make their own parts, so you would have to sent it to them. If you can find someone to diagnose the problem first, you could save yourself some money. I have repaired amps with parts from Radio Shack myself.

Samsung TV Warranty issue posted July 1, 08


The first person I talked to was not helpful at all. You need to ask to speak to someone in executive customer service. Tell them that you have researched it on the internet and it several people have had the same issue with that TV. Because I had my receipt, they agreed to extend my warranty and have someone come out and fix it. The warranty is only extended three months beyond the repair. It took about 4 weeks to get it fixed because we are in a rural area of Tennessee.

They did fix it, but from what I have read online, I expect it will happen again in another 18 months. They will not fix again - they already told me that. I will NEVER buy another Samsung product again.

If you look back through the postings on the fixya site, you will see where someone has posted the phone number to call, but if you just call Samsung and ask to speak to someone in executive customer service, that should work.

I wish you the best - I know how frustrating it is!!

Black square


Black square in the middle could be closed captioning. Light engine is approx. $700 to $1000 for the parts alone. Time consuming job to change - 2 hours - so expect a hefty labor charge as well.

LCD laptop screen


It is definitely the screen or the inverter. Usually the screen and inverter come as one piece. I would check with the manufacturer. Unfortunately for you, the LCD is one of the most expensive parts to replace on a laptop.

Just the simple fact of you mentioning that it works fine with an external monitor tells me that its not the video card. If it was the video card, you would see the exact same thing happening on your external monitor as well.

Hope this helps!

Verticle lines on screen


This is a very easy fix. Your cable box is not grounded correctly. To fix this you need a AC Plug adapter. This will change your TV ac plug from a 3 wire to a 2 wire. This may sound funny, but trust me on this. I have fix a lot of TV in NY doing just this.24001fc.jpg

Picture black- sound ok


If you have audio but no on screen display, then the problem is likely in the Video Drive Board.

Black Shapes Encountered on TV Screen


your problem is in the horizontal sweep and its called blanking. it happens on mostly zeniths sets as Ive seen it a few times and the only waty to fix it is to replace the entire chassis as there are no parts for zenith available just the module as a complete assy. Basicly, The blanking is suppose to only blank the top and the bottom of the fields of the screen that you don't see but it misfires and causes all sorts of lines, squares, and boxes on the screen. When i first was told of this problem i thought the same exact thing?? About the closed caption but the set came into the shop and didnt do the problem. I thought the customer was seeing things. Then finally on night late I CAME BACK TO THE SHOP TURNED ON THE BENCH AND THERE IT WAS!!! i SAW IT WITH MY OWN EYES!! I replace the Module and all was good. Thge repair was about 175 bucks. Good Luck in your repair. Oh this should not be attemted by a handi person, as there is dangerous high voltage inside these sets.
