For the last couple of weeks a black bar randomly appears near the top if the screen. Sometimes it is just a blank bar. Other times there is some text in it. Last night it kept adding characters from the left. Sometimes it is a random character on the right. And one time yesterday it was a large black box the covered most of the viewing area. Pressing any button on the remote makes it go away but it may come back in 2 minutes or 30 minutes but it always comes back.

Re: Black bar on screen
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 can get a third party to replace it if you want, but I would actually recommend sending it to Nintendo.
Sony and MS, Nintendo has awesome repair services. They will do any
repair under (1 year) warranty for free and if it's not under warranty
then they will still do it for cheap. It cost me something like $96 (in
Canada) after shipping.
They are also very quick, usually in a week you'll have your system back.
best part is, whether your system is under warranty or you pay for the
repair, you get a renewed 1 YEAR warranty with Nintendo, this is far
better than Sony and MS who only do 90 days!
ok this is what you do take out the battery for ten seconds and then hold the w key and while holdinq the w key put in the battery and then let qo of the w key after the battery is putten and then turn you sidekick lx on and thennn it shoulf work aqainn :]
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.
I would check and see if you have the text option on under your closed captioning. With the new digital transition the signal for text captioning has been getting messed up during broadcast here lately. If it is on i would just shut it off or go to regular closed captioning.
HP's are known for bad capacitors in the power supply.
Replacing them is simple if you know how..not so simple if you don't.
Try your local TV repair centre. It should not cost alot to have the capacitors replaced.
Not a hard drive issue I'm afraid. Sounds like they switched the whole system out.
So you disassembled the laptop and put it back together?
That's more than most of these guys can do.
You've got a loose lcd cable, or memory is going bad, or there's a short in the case-palm rest area.
All these are common with this model.
This set has had a problem with the LVDS cable from the Main PCB to the panel. The wires are delicate and the connection is not that great.
Sometimes unplugging and reseating the cable does clear intermitent problems like yours up.
