Question about Toshiba CF35E50 35" TV

1 Answer

Black Square Covers 80% of screen on most channels on TV

I have a 35" CF35E50 Toshiba. Have Comcast cable. I get a good full picture on about 8 channels and all the others (70 or so) I have a large black square covering the picture except for the outer 2 inches of the screen. The cable channel number will show in the bottom right corner of the black square. Sound is good on all channels. The other 2 TV's in the house have no problem, so it's not the signal. No channels are locked and a cable box is not used.

White/Grey screen with non-HD channels

I removed the HDMI cable and connected with component video and rca audio. No more white screen.

Picture quality looks good. I don't know if it's as good as HDMI, but then I don't need to reboot the TV three times to get to teh on-demand menu... Grrrrr....

I am trying to contact Toshiba on this as well. I have seen several reports of this problem on the web.

Black square in middle of tv

He, he. Somebody activated the subtitle mode on the remote. Desactivate the CC mode on your menu and it'll go away or at least if you want CC put it in CC1 Text1
