Big Black Square

HELP!!! Tv was working just fine, then the remote got sat on and after that I got a big black square covering over about 1/2 the picture.  This black square is OVER the picture.  If I push any button on the remote the black square goes away for a  few seconds, and I can view the entire picture, but it returns. Any suggestion on how to correct this?

It turns out that the Closed Caption option was turned on somehow. When I turned that off the Black Square went a way and did not return.

I keep getting a black square in the middle of the picture. The sound stays on and the picture is behind the black square. How do I get rid of the black square for good


This is a caption for hearing impaired, grab remote! scroll down to captions, use right arrow 1,2,3,off when the cursor is flashing over the " off " press enter on the remote, that should restore the set. Some remotes have the captions on a separate button.

4. Select CAPTION MODE. Use arrow keys to select CAPTION MODE. Press SET to cycle through caption settings until it says OFF.
5. Press ACTION key three times to return to normal screen.

You can download the manual from Panasonic here if you need a copy.

Screen problem


That's the text box function of the closed caption decoder. Look for buttons with "CAP", "TEXT","CCD", or "CLOSED CAPTION". Look in menu for same.

You have the closed captioning turned on to "Text" mode. Turn off the CC and it will go away.

or off. They were on. I turned the caption settings off and the large square diappeared.
