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.

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.

There is a rectangular black box across the screen - it goes away when I use the favorite button and have multi screens showing - it returns when I close out the favorites. Color, sound, picture quality...


in the customer menu--find the closed caption settings---you will most likely find the set has been set to TEXT 1---with the remote select either CC1 or OFF---the black box was for text (books) and was not ever used much---usually someone engages it by accident

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.)

Black box in middle of screen


Note that the large black box goes away when pushing buttons on the tv (ex: the black box will disappear to show the volume setting when changing the volume on the tv but it will cover the picture and the menu display of the dtv box).

This is caused by the closed caption setting of the television set NOT the captioning of the converter box. To fix this you must open your television's menu, find the ccd/closed caption option, and turn it off. This is a frustrating problem as when most people are told to shut off the captioning they try to do so at the box.

Normal dtv box captioning will appear as a small text box at the bottom of the screen as you would expect - not as a giant black rectangle that covers most of the screen. If you do want to shut this off too you will find that you can't do it through the usual menu options (the menu will only allow changes to font, color etc.) - there should be a ccd button on the remote that when pushed will scroll through ccd-1, ccd-2,... off.

Black screen


I have a Sharp Tv that had the same problem with a large brownish or black square right in the middle of the screen. It only left about an inch around the edges that you
could see the picture moving in behind the big black block or square.I have DISH sat-elite and the book recomending that I check and see if the "caption settings" were on
or off. They were on. I turned the caption settings off and the large square diappeared.
