The WIDTH statement blanks the screen when the following command is executed in an EGA screen mode (such as SCREEN 9):

   WIDTH 80,43

The screen clears because the information that was stored in the previous 25-line (default) screen is no longer in a valid format to be redisplayed in EGA 43-line mode.
