Question about Hitachi 42HDS69 42 in. Plasma Television

Large black box keeps covering 80% of the screen

While watching the TV, on occasion a large black box covers the majority of the picture. when I touch the picture button or change channels the box goes away momentarily...then comes back. I turn it off for a few hours and come back and the box is gone. there is no continuity as to why or when. It has gone 6 months without happening, but just started again last night. How do I make it go away and not come back?

The picture is visible but there is a black small screen just covering the picture


Hello; If there is a black box covering part of the picture, it is likely a " TEXT " box that is used with " closed captioning " Read your owner's manual to see how to TURN OFF all closed captioning functions. Download the manual if you don't have one. John

Black box in center of screen


You have closed captioning on and in 'text' mode. Can be either in TV menu settings, a button on the TV remote, or set-up in a set top(cable/SAT) box.

Black box on screen


That sounds like a text box. Press the cc button and keep pressing it. You will see different closed captions options on your screen each time you press the button. Finally when it says cc off stop pressing the button and you should no longer get the black box. If you have a cable box connected you may also have to disable the captioning on it.

Samsung 50'' DLP PRblems


Okey dokey... you'll need to remove the back cover on this set and make an adjustment to a part called the "DMD board". The DMD board is a large, flat, vertically oriented board with a perforated thin steel cover over it.

Basically, there is a tiny tiny 'tv screen' on the front side of this board and by moving this board around you can 'fine tune' the picture position. All that is typically required is to loosen the screws around the perimiter of the board (JUST SLIGHTLY! You don't want the board to fall out of position!) and slide the board around, preferably with someone watching the screen, until the picture looks perfectly centered.

Something to keep in mind is that the TV will not operate with the back off due to their being a small switch with a blue lever on it whose purpose is to prevent the TV from powering with the lamp cover off. Just tape this switch up so your set will power and then you can rock and roll. Good luck!

Black box covers television picture


called a TV repair store, got info over the phone for no charge and the TV is now as good as new. You should tell folks about the charge straight up, I wouldn't mind paying for a service but think you should advise at the onset.
