    I have the same problem with the Magnavox TV we have. It was given to us. Ours usually only goes black when certain channels are on, or sometimes around the same time of day. Very odd. When we hit one of the buttons on the control panel on the t.v.v itself the screen goes back to normal, but only for a short time.

Big black box in the middle of the screen


The black box is there because your closed captioning is on and set to text mode. Some channels send the signal even when there is no actual text to display. You can get rid of it by either turning off closed captioning or changing it to CC1 or CC2 mode instead of text. If you can't find those settings, then restore factory settings as directed in your user manual.

Tv Has Big Black Box


shut off close caption. use the CC button onthe remote or go in to the menu and change close caption to CC1. this box is the close caption in TEXT(1,2) which will put on a black box whenever there is caption present.
