    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

How do I get picture back on TV which was working the night before, which is hooked up to HD cable box, thru HDMI?


OS info is always helpful, if say you are running some type of nix, it's likely not getting recognized by xserver or if your running some version of windows your display manager has shut it down because of a resolution mismatch.

57wv600 blinks 7 times, no picture, or blue for few seconds


1. Remove the 5 screws from behind each speaker
2. Grasp bottom center of plastic panel and "pop" forward. Swing upward to remove.
3. Remove 4 screws from the wooden panel in center.
4. There is a "black box" in the very front of electronics. It will have torque paint on the 2 rows of 3 screws. top row is labeled "focus"
MY TV would go green before going black. Volume still worked.
5. I turned the center bottom screw (marked "green") appx. 1/8 to 1/4 turn COUNTER clockwise.
Plugged TV in and it works fine.

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.

Motorola v360 screen display


First thing you should try is holding a bright flashlight to the screen when it is turned on, if you do this in a dark room it might allow you to see the screen, if not follow these steps.
1. open the phone book
2. Press up once
3. press menu
4. press down twice
5. press enter
6. press up once
7. press enter, wait a sec press enter again.
hopefully that will work

The TV turns on and you can hear the sound but the picture is dark except for a thin line of blue dots in the center of the screen.


You have whats known in the biz as a cold solder connection on the vertical output IC or on the associated components. Not a job for the handi-man unless you know the issues with safty, and precautions to take with Hi voltage inside of tv sets. Shouldnrt cost much for the local shop to find your problem . Now on rare occations the poor connections are inside the IC and the IC has to be replaced. Good Luck
