Sounds like you have on the closed caption. Seen this many times. Go to the menu and scroll down to closed caption and turn it off. Good Luck

I got a model 27F485 from a bar that closed. Great picture but after a couple minute a black box appears at the bottom of the screen. Looks almost like a PIP but nothing in it. How do I get rid of

Look in the set menu under closed captions, there will likely be a setting there for "TEXT" IF FOUND SWITCH IT TO OFF.

This is a feature a lot of sets had for books etc viewed but was never really used---the result a black box on the screen.

Hi Erica,

Black box is a closed caption without a text. To resolve the issue, go to the menu, navigate to CC (closed caption), turned it off.

Need caption taken off

Hi, the only other way would by going into the menu or display mode by pressing the corresponding key located in the front of the TV(if available) and using the other keys to scroll down the list to where you can access the audio features. you'll have to look for the caption heading once in the audio select menu and keep pressing the select key untill the cc feature says off, this should eliminate the black box blocking the picture.

This is the closed captioning, even though it may not contain writing in the block. If you can access the main menu then you can try and turn the CC to off. Otherwise you are stuck with it.

Please rate this answer if it helped.

How do i eliminate a black rectangular block on my 25" zenith tv?

You have the closed-captioning turned on and set to "text" mode. It's easy to do on Zeniths because many of their remotes have on button just to control the captioning. Go to the caption settings and turn it off or set it to "caption" mode if you want to use it. Then the box will be gone.

(What's happening is that in text mode, the screen is blanked out in the area where the text would go, but there isn't any text being sent by the station. On channels where no captioning at all is used, the box never shows up.)
