Toshiba cx36H60 remote problems & black square in the middle of the picture.

We purchased this tv in 1999. We have had no problems with it until a few weeks ago. Now there are 2 problems. The first problem started a few weeks ago. The remote would intermittenly work. Non of the functions would work changed the batteries but it did not solve the problem.
The second problem is a black square in the middle of the picture. It seems that after making adjustments in the menu box. The box doesn't disappear. There is no way you can watch the tv like this. What do you think?

    The black square in the middle of the screen has been resolved. I contacted Toshiba and they came up with thea solution. It was so simple, It has been a while see if i remember. It had to do with the close caption feature, and was resolved by turning it off or changing the setting.

    The remote problem was cured by changing our cable service. We just hapen to change our cable service around the same time. Which brought in a cable box and the remote that works with the box. So we don't use the remoted that we were having trouble with anymore.

    Good luck

    ok I have a toshiba 36" crt tv from 2001and randomly a black square appeared in middle of the screen. It would go away when I changed the channel, increased the volume etc. but would come back in a few seconds. Jackie8 's solution worked, I went into closed caption "CC" settings and turned it off, it was set to T1. This corrected the problem.

Black square in middle of picture

your captioning or "text" is on. usually inside the tv menu. if not its your cable or dish box has captioning on. black box usually means its in text mode instead of CC thus the black box rather than text

Yes, I have been seeing a lot of those Toshiba IR receivers bad lately. Replacing it with a new one should take care of your remote problems. If you have never replaced small parts on PC boards then have a qualified tech handle it for you.
