    When I am trying to watch a DVD using the AV1 and AV2 screens, a large black rectangle flickers in the center of the screen. It is not because of the closed captioning. I have tried turning the TV off and back on which worked once, but is not working anymore. Any ideas?

    I have the same problem with the 20 inch SVA TV. Works for a few seconds then almost the entire screen is covered with a black box that you can hardly see through. Any solutions to this problem?

    Hello I know this is an older post but I have the same problem now and wondered if you found out what the cause was.,. It is not the closed caption

Sounds like a version of closed captions. Go to menu section and make sure closed captions is off

Visio 1080p screen went light


Our Visio 42" flat screen TV did the same thing. It didn't happen that often but sometimes it would go darker or the sound would go off until I changed the channel or turned TV Off then back On. I contacted Visio through my warranty and they sent me a flash drive to install info on my TV. Did not fix the problems. A year later before warranty ended I contacted Visio again. They sent a huge box for me to pack my TV in to send to the warehouse where they fix everything. It took about 2 wks. to get it back. Worked fine for about 4 months and the problems continued. I will not buy another Visio TV. I found out that they had many problems with several models.

Our Sony Bravia tv picture keeps going light dark light dark. What is causing this problem? It is very annoying when it goes dark because you can't see the picture. Please help.


I have Sony KDL-32XBR9 and I have noticed a similar problem. When the picture is showing mostly black, for example during the ending credits of a movie, the TV will further darken the display. Once the picture lightens back up, the TV will adjust the brightness of the display back to normal. I just called Sony customer support and they indicated it was a firmware problem and they will be sending a USB device in the mail to update the firmware. Hope this helps.

LCD screen gone dark, can still hear sound and see image


It wouls appear one of the backlights in the screen is cutting out, this will require the screen to be replaced although in certain circumstances, depending on the age & model of your TV, it is sometimes possible to change the faulty backlight independantly. Take it to a repair centre to get an anaylisis of the type of screen it has.

Black box in center of screen


The Panasonic call center helped us with this one. Our Closed Captioning had been turned on through the TV settings. This made us have a black box with everything besides our cable. Turning off CC on our TV Main Menu solved the problem for us.
