Go into the menu and turn off closed captioning. You have accidentally turned it on to text or cc1 or cc2, but that is positively what is wrong. Good Luck! Please rate this solution!! Thank you,

I just changed from Comcast Cable to Verizon Fios. Since the change I am unable to get a full picture on Fox News. There is a narrow horizontal picture with 1-2" black bands across the top and...


This is a function of your set-top box (STB), and has nothing to do with the TV. I know several FiOS users with the same trouble, and it's annoying but there isn't anything you can do to "fix" it. What is really strange is that the screen size can change even on the same channel, depending on the particular program being broadcast. It has to do with the aspect ratio of the programming from the provider.

I have a similar problem using an older 20" flat screen standard definition TV. (not High Def). I can see a little of the picture but more than 2/3 is covered by the black. My model is LC-20SH7U.
I used sharpusa.com "contact us" section.
Hopefully I get some kind of reply to report what they say.

My 32 lcd tv a black rectangle apears on aprox,


If it is a large black rectangle that blots out the middle of the screen then you need to check your CC (closed caption) setting. Make sure the closed caption is turned off. I'm not up to date on the newer sets, but a lot of the older ones had more than one CC setting. One setting ran the captioning across the bottom, another put it in a big black box in the center of the screen. Most places didn't support the full text so all that showed was a big black rectangle on the screen. Since I'm not sure exactly what your rectangle looks like, this is my best estimate of your problem. Hope this helps.

You will need to find the close caption feature in the menu adjustments and turn it OFF. You should do it for all the individual channels that have it activated.

Large Black rectangle on bottom half of screen


My mother-in-law had this problem on a Quasar for two years before she finally mentioned it. The rectangle is a text box for closed captioning or for a demonstation list of features, but without the text. I restored the factory presets and poof... problem solved.

Look in the manual and find how to restore the factory settings - it will probably be some weird combination of buttons that you would never guess. On her set, which has a built-in VCR, it was simultaneously pressing "play" and "FF" (on the set, not the remote) for five seconds until the set powered down. Yours will probably be something different but equally odd. That should get rid of the black rectangle. Then you go through the initial setup and you're back in business.

It sounds like the closed caption text mode has been turned on. Use you CC button on the remote and make sure the closed caption mode is in the off position.

Black Rectangle on lower half of TV screen.


Turn off the closed captioning feature. If a channel or program doesn't provide the captioning, all you get is the black box. Just find the menu page for that and change the setup.
