Screen on but black box in middle

Whenever i turn on my magnavox 15inch tv it comes on fine and sound and everything work. but it has a big black box in the middle of it with only about a inch of actual tv program on the outside of the box. only a few channels dont have this box on them. i dont understand why all the channels have this box except for a few. does anoyone have a solution or have this problem as well?

    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.

Okay i so happy i got the solution from another web page this what you do its the closed caption button on the remote or tv go to close caption and keep hit close caption until you see off that's it so simple

that set is highly rated by users .. it first came out in early 2009 (i think) so you might check to see if any warranty remains ... the display is illuminated by several lamps .. each lamp has its own high voltage inverter .. all the innverters are powered by an output of the low voltage power supply (often 18 volts)... i would suspect a problem with that low voltage power supply.. either a bad capacitor or a thermal issue .. .. ..
