Re: Tv display black bar in the middle of the screen
I battled with this for a while before I realized that my 18 month year old had somehow turned on one of the less common closed caption modes. Since the mode was not supported, it just displays a black frame over most of the screen. Just turn it off and you are good to go.

Turn off the closed-captioning. It's set for "text" and the TV is blanking out the screen where the text would go if there was any. There's probably a single button on your remote to control captions, and it got pressed and put the set into text mode. Just press that button until the TV says "off" or use the TV's on-screen menu.
When the screen goes blank, hit any remote function that will show up on the screen-like volume bar. If the display is missing as well, then you have a tv problem. If the volume display is there when the tv picture is not, you may require a software upgrade.
1) In customer menu, adjust all video controls to center,then
increase "picture" to 3/4
2)Locate focus/screen adjust block above chassis...adjust
RGB screen controls for best mixture = B/W tracking..
Check with customer color level at minimum..should look gray.
If you turn screen controls up too much,you will see faint
re-trace lines in picture.....once B/W looks good,put color level
back to middle...................................................T.
Had the same thing today. Iwas playing with the auto demonstration of on screen displays. Press and hold the power button (5 seconds) on the TV. The auto display will play. Press the power button again (TV will go off). Turn power on again. you should now have the picture back
