Black Rectangles on 42" Vizio HDTV LCD

Small black rectangles appear on my screen at various times and places, sometimes if I turn off the direct tv they go away, or if I turn the tv off and then on again...not sure if it's the tv or direct tv?? I've also had time when I turn the tv on and the whole screen stays black or half the screen will...any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Your DirecTV signal is probably too low. That would produce the small black rectangles (pixilation). Also, try replacing the cable you are using to get the signal from the DirecTV receiver.

Vizio 42" LCD - Random appearance of small black rectangles


There is a processing fault that is starting to occure. What you are seeing is a type of aliasing. This can be in the main signal processing or in one of the control areas.

The set will require service. The service rep will test the set by using board substitution. There are typicaly a number of areas in the TV set that can cause this type of fault. Once the defective board is located the fault will be easy to service with a simple board swap and some adjustments.

If the set is out of warranty, it may be expensive to service. With many of the no-name brands, spare parts can be difficult or impossible to have.

I would check and see if you have the text option on under your closed captioning. With the new digital transition the signal for text captioning has been getting messed up during broadcast here lately. If it is on i would just shut it off or go to regular closed captioning.

Sounds like the power supply board blew. You can purchase a new one directly from Vance Baldwin. They are the only parts supplier for Vizio. http://www.vancebaldwin.com/

It's just plug and play. remove the old circuit board and replace with the new one. Not difficult and it should solve your problem for less than $100.

Black squares or rectangles over picture


It's the closed captioning. The reason it doesn't go away when you press the "caption" button is because there are four option for closed captioning: Text 1, Text 2, Text 3, and Text 4. The fifth option, which has no designation, is the "off" option. Using the remote, just click on the "caption button until the option has no designation.

Mine was a large black rectangle in the middle of the picture. It's not like Nina3's problem.

Small black squares appear on Vizio 37


Sounds like a digital cable issue to me. Try connecting the cable directly to the TV bypassing the cable box and I bet that the issue will be gone. If so then contact your cable provider as the box or the incomming signal may be at falt.
