Toshiba 23HLV87 HDTV

A black square, about half the size of the screen, appears in center of the picture. It can be cancelled momentarily by pressing the Exit button on the remote.The square can also be cancelled by pressing the Menu button, the Mute button, or the Input button. The square will remain out of sight as long as menu items are displayed, or as long as the audio remains muted.

How can I eliminate the black square?

Need the operation manuel for my 22inch Gateway monitor can't change operating language


I have a smaller sized Gateway monitor than yours, but I'm sure the monitor buttons (on the front) perform the same functions on all sizes.

You should have eight control buttons on the front of the bezel (as listed from left to right): source, menu, down arrow, up arrow, left arrow, right arrow, auto/set, and on/off buttons.

Press the menu button, the first dialog screen that appears (at least on mine) is the brightness/contrast function. The screen will show the function to be changed, and a very small picture of what screen you have in view.

Once the first function is listed on the screen, press the down arrow to access the other screens (color, tracking and set-up), each having their own little picture indicating what screen you are looking at.

Brightness/contrast - picture of half light, half dark circle
color - RGB picture
tracking - two squares on top on one another slightly off center
set-up- hand pointing left

You want the set-up screen which shows a picture (I think) of a little hand pointing to the left. Once you are in the set-up screen, press the auto/set button and the first line will be highlighted (usually it is the language choice).

Once highlighted, press the right arrow button until your language name appears (i.e., English, Duetsch, Francais, Espanol Italiano, -there is no choice on mine for Japanese, etc.).

Press the menu button again and that should do it.

I have black screen no video. First start up momentarily picture appearing than no picture only audio.


The backlight inverter board may have gone out, or power supply for the inverter is bad. Check the power supply first since it is easier to get to. Look for bad capacitors, etc.

Black square on screen that covers half the picture appeared on my 42" sharp aquos tv.


sounds like you might have PIP turned one (picture in picture) .. if there is no input hooked up for the PIP . you will just get a black screen ... you should be able to move that PIP around and change its size .. indeed turn it off .. look for a menu item called PIP .. select PIP off ..

Picture off center on Toshiba 46" rear projection HDTV


On some models there is a picture position setting. One for horizontal and one for vertical. Don't mess with convergence, that probably won't help. Older models use knobs; new ones use the menu. Either way, you are looking for position adjustment.

Older sets, for each there should be size, hold, and position. Same for menus but it may have a picture that looks like one square offset on top of another.

Good luck. and if you need more help, please state the model #

Large black square blocks screen


Most likely it's the closed captioning has been turned on. From your post I assume you have the remote control and able to access the menus so try to turn off the closed captioning. I'll be notified if you post something new.

Black square


hmmm...the black square syndrome..sounds like the picture in picture settings are unhappy..check those, to see if maybe it's on some sort of timer, and accessing a non channel(which might explain the black square).
