Closed caption text is pale white now instead of bright green

The closed captioning text display used to be in bright green letters and it was clearly legible and easy to read. One night all of a sudden the text changed to pale white and none of the setting changes on the menu will get it back to the bright green letters. the pale white text is almost invisible so the captioning is worthless. does anyone know how to change the color of the caption text back to bright green? Thanks.

Re: closed caption text is pale white now instead of...

Theres no color option on this set as far as the manual says. It sounds like the Video driver comming out of the microprocessor is bad, so the micro will need to be replace. This is not a user replaceable part so please seek a pro to repair this for you. Sorry i couldnt assist you more with this. Good Luck

If a box show on a screen. What is it and what

Usually the box is because you have closed-captioning set for TEXT mode. Check your captioning settings, make sure captions are turned off, and the problem should clear up. Most TV remotes have a single button for captions, so it's easy to press it and get into this mode without knowing it. Then you see the box on some channels and programs, but not on others.

Please take a moment to give this solution a fixya rating if it clears up the trouble, and thanks for asking here!

There is a large black box that appears on my screen and makes it so that that I can not watch the TV. It takes up the entire picture and all that I can do is hear whatever my be playing. Once it comes on...

Check your closed-caption settings. You will probably find that you have captioning on and set for "text" mode. Turn it off and the problem should go away.

What's happening is that with text mode on, the set clears an area (the black box) for text to be displayed, but there's no text. On channels or programs where captions aren't being broadcast, you don't have this problem. Most TV remotes have a button for quick access to caption settings, so it's easy to get this turned on without knowing it. Then you're suddenly facing the black box.

Please take a moment to give this solution a fixya rating if it gets your box cleared up, and thanks for asking here!

Black area on screen,

Hi omsoc,

This could possibly be an issue with closed captioning. While some closed captioning is a marquee-type text near an edge of the display, your television may have an option turned on to display a different channel of captioning that would likely display a large black box on your screen if there is no data to display. This would explain why this would take place suddenly at the same time each night, as well as why pressing the display button would cause it to disappear. I suggest you look into your menu to try turning this option off, then watch the channel you normally watch at this time. If this does not resolve the situation, I recommend you contact your manufacturer’s product support line.

Thank you,

Black Box On Screen

Salutations Cranberries,

The annoying black box is usually a feature of the closed captioning called "Text" You should be able to go in to onscreen menu and select caption options. Unless you need to have the closed captioning on for medical reasons, it maybe best just to turn off all captioning options.

Hope this helps.
