Why does my TV show discolored vertical bands and can I fix it at home?


The T-con board controls the picture elements on the screen. Usually replacing this board will solve the problem. If you can touch the screen and the lines disappear and later reappear, that says the screen itself is defective. The only fix is to replace the entire screen.

This is NOT a flat screen television


look in the menu for closed captions or cc---in there also is a setting for text===that is your box, and if you have or are using a cable box it has the same feature also.

Big black square in middle of screen picture top to bottom about 36 " wide good audio and picture 6" on right and left side displaying.


If you have tried using different input devices, looked for loose contacts
in power outlet, RC Jack, cable and connectors, the TV might need service.

My tv's picture does not cover the entire size of the tv. The picture that shows is the size of a square and my television is a rectangular size. How do I widen the picture?


there should be a button on your remote that adjusts the picture to fit your screen. They have that on most tv's. Are you using a cable box? your cable box also has settings depending on what your using. 1080i, 720p? does it do the same thing with a dvd player or game console hooked up?

I have a black square box that resides in the middle of the picture. It is not the closed caption...is the TV toast or is there a chip replacement or some other fix that is not cost prohibative?


I would recheck the cc and make sure it is OFF. It has to be set to TEXT for the black box to be in the MIDDLE of the screen. Also make sure the MUTE is not on. There is nothing else that I know of that would generate a box in the middle of the screen, any other problems would knock out an entire section of the screen.

Black square on screen that covers half the picture appeared on my 42" sharp aquos tv.


sounds like you might have PIP turned one (picture in picture) .. if there is no input hooked up for the PIP . you will just get a black screen ... you should be able to move that PIP around and change its size .. indeed turn it off .. look for a menu item called PIP .. select PIP off ..

Black box in middle of screen


It's a text box for either closed captioning or demonstration mode. Go into the setup menu and turn off closed captioning. If you have trouble doing that, then just restore factory settings.
