Question about Sharp Aquos LC-42D62U 42 in. LCD HDTV
My tv does the same thing with the small rectangle green light. It will flash for less than a second. I think it is when they are taking a photo of my living room, like when you can take a photo with your xbox kinetic when you jump. Might be aliens. Thanks for any help. getameapizza

I had this exact same issue just yesterday. Channel info would flash
intermittently. While set was in this mode, could not enter menu,
change channels, etc. from remote or front panel controls. Similar to tjh492, I thought it might be an
overheating issue. But unplugging the Viera and waiting for set to cool
made no difference.
I then remembered that this issue popped up the instance I surfed to a particular channel (FWIW, 26-3 "Me Too" on Comcast here in Aurora, Illinois, USA). I had a hunch that there might be an issue with the signal on the channel that prevented the Viera from properly syncing, so I decided to unplug the antenna cable. Once I did that, the channel info displayed steady. I was then able to change channels (of course screen was blank as antenna cable was unplugged) and enter the Viera menu. I immediately went to channel set-up and manually removed channel 26-3 from the channel list. After reconnecting cable, Viera was back to normal. Since I'm not a big fan of "Me Too", problem solved :)
Not sure why a digital channel sync issue would effectively make the Viera remote and front panel controls inoperable. Pure speculation, but it could be that the Viera microprocessor was overloaded trying to sync to channel and this prevented any interrupts from remote or front panel controls.

I had a similar problem on my Toshiba Regza but trying my fix couldn't hurt. I use a satellite dish for TV (if you do the same this might work)... I turned off my receiver, took the programming card out, cleaned it with my shirt (especially the part that looks like a computer chip), put it back in the receiver, turned it back on and when everything reinitialized the black rectangle was gone.
Hope this helps.
