Question about Panasonic TH-42XVS30U 42 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Just today a black box has appeared on my screen. It appears in the top right hand corner of the Tv and is approximately 6 inches by 6 inches. I can see that it actually works as when there is movement on the picture behind it, it shows, but other wise is black. I am not sure if I have the remote or manual for the Tv but would greatly appreciate any help solving this problem.

It sounds like you accidentally activated picture in picture with a dead station tuned in or a different input selected for the P.I.P.
Start around page 52 of the user manual for instructions on this.
Your manual is here:

If you turn off the PIP, everything should go back to normal.

I believe the "Caption Vision" is selected. By pressing the "Display" button on the remote it should toggle through the choices until "Display Off" appears. That should be all.

At random a black retangular box appears on the screen


Go into the TV's closed-caption settings and turn off captioning. You'll find it's set for "text" mode right now. What's happening is that in text mode, the set blanks out the part of the screen where the text will go but there isn't any. On channels or programs where captions aren't being broadcast you don't see anything. With the captions turned off the box will go away.

Sounds like a possible "burn in" issue. Although rare, seems like a rash of these are happening to the same model.

I could not see the image you say you included in your description. If the rectangle is black (and not just an outline) it may be the box associated with captioning or text descriptions. Use your setup menu or remote control to turn captioning/text off.
