Question about Samsung LTM1575W 15 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Pop up box appears periodically

When watching tv for awhile, a small black pop up screen appears blocking the show. We hit a button on our remote and it goes away for a few seconds then reappears. It appears to do this on certain channels more than others (I think). Is there any way to get rid of it permanently. We tried to select menu buttons to turn feature off but no option on menu made it go away permanently.

Re: pop up box appears periodically

Try bringing up the menu, and see if there's an option "factory default", and try that. you didn't mention what button on the remote you press to get rid of the popup, or what feature you are turning off to get rid of the popup,

We have an NEC Plasma 60xp10 tv and NEC RU-M111 remote controller. we accidentally hit the pip button and now we can't get it to turn off. a black small box randomly pots on and off.

The black box is likely in the CC area labeled TEXT and can come from the set or a box connected for signal.

The other issue sounds like PIP or picture in picture is engaged.

Both issues may require the original remote to turn them off.

My Polaroid monitor has a black box pop up on it while watching television. How can I get this box off my screen?

Hi dmradil
What you have is CC or close caption.
On your remote ,just below the O.K button there is the CC button; hit that button until the closed caption is set to off.
Hope this help. bye

Black box blocks on certain programs

Check your closed-caption settings. You should find it's set for "text" right now. Turn it to "off" (or to "caption 1" if you want the captioning).

In text mode, the TV blanks out a portion of the screen to put up text that never shows up. You only notice on channels or programs where captioned programs are being broadcast. This is a common problem; on many remotes there's a single button to control captions and it's easy to hit it and change settings without realizing it.

The black box is caused by the Closed Caption option of the tv. Go into the menu and turn it off.

I'm guessing its the "CC", closed captioning. You have to turn it off, it's either in your menu or you have a button the remote saying either, Text or CC.

On the reomte control (bottom) left of the sleep button is a cc button, push that until "OFF" appears on the screen. The close caption box should disappear. It worked for me, finally.
