Re: blacked out screen in middle of tv
The text mode in the closed caption is turned on.Turn off the closed caption.
I don't have the schematic in front of me, so, I will wing it.
There may be a button on the remote that says CC, if so then use that button to turn it off, if not then go to the service menu and you may have to search a bit.
Either way it's an easy fix and you can do it yourself.
If you can't find it, then, reply and I will give better instructions when I get into my shop next week.

You`ve mentioned that ON CERTAIN CHANNELS THE TV WORKS FINE, so your trying to say that not all channels THE BLACK SQUARE APPEARS IN THE MIDDLE O THE SCREEN... my be that black square is generated from the broadcast center. may be your unit is good. let me ask you how many channels that your tv works fine..?
Hopefully you still have under warrantee. If not, sorry. This line if memory serves me right is because the tv has 2 picture panels on each side of the TV (they join up together to make one picture). Toshiba did not realize that the panels will start slipping thus creating this fine line from the top of the screen to the bottom. They have revamped the newer models and placed glass to adhere the panels together. Even though my TV was under warrantee I got a new one and have had this one for 1/2 year and now the picture just blew (there is sound but no picture.) Take your TV back if it is under warrantee.
I had the same problem once with my RCA television. It only happened on certain channels and didn't happen during commercial breaks. If I adjusted the volume on the tv the box went away, but came back shortly after. The problem ended up being some malfunction in the closed captioning. I turned it all off and changed the CC settings and never had the problem again.
