Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

The TV has a full picture with sound for approx 30 seconds then a large black square appears in the center (covering 90%) of the screen. The program sound continues to work and the remaining picture can be seen in the 1" border around the black square center. All other TV's in home are working. Any thoughts?
