No picture, but voice and captions showing

I have been trying to get the picture to show, but my screen is black. The voice is working and captions are showing. I can read the captions, but have no picture. How can I solve this problem. I could not find any help in the truobleshooting area of the user guide. Can anyone help? Helen

    Is the problem the same even when I go to AV Source? When I am on AV source, I use it for videophoning. The pictures show fine. I can talk with anyone using the videophone. It is the Television source that is the problem. Helen

    I have the exact same problem with an LG HDTV. Backlight is not the issue. TV is new and we just hooked it up yesterday. I am assuming my daughter hit some button on the remote last night when she was turning it off but I cannot seem to get it corrected.

Sounds like a backlight problem or a problem with the video driver circuit. Sorry Helen, this is a solid state set and has no user replaceable parts inside of it.. Take it into be serviced by a pro.

Tip

Curing the "black box" on some TV channels


Here's the symptom: A mysterious black box covers some or most of the picture on your TV, but not all the time. It may not show up on all channels, or sometimes it disappears only to come back later.

No, it's not the picture tube, it's your closed-captioning. Somehow your TV has been set to "text mode", and the screen is being cleared for text that isn't there. On channels or shows where captions aren't being broadcast, there's no box. But the box returns when captioning is being sent.

Many TV set remote controls have a single button to set closed-caption modes, so it's easy to set a TV to "text" without knowing it. (Especially when you have kids who love to press buttons!) Then when the box pops up, it's a mystery.

Simply press the captioning button on the remote, or use the set's menu, to cycle through the settings until you turn captions off. No more box!

HI, MY TV PCL5415R, HAVE SOUND BUT NO PICTURES SHOW ONLY BIG BLACK SQUARE


Set would seem to be either in PIP (picture in picture multiple mode) or the black box might be the TEXT feature which is found in the closed caption menu.

I have a blank, black screen, irrespective of the input (cable, dvd, wii). The menus, however, come up fine and the audio is working fine.


Hi,

Your screen is showing a black picture because the closed caption function has been activated. When the closed caption mode is on the screen will display an 80% black picture.

To turn off the closed caption and regain a full screen please follow these steps;

1) Press the Menu button

2) Use the up and down arrows to navigate to Closed Caption

3) Use the right or left arrows to select it.

4) Use the right or left arrows to select OFF

5) Use the up or down arrows to select Finish

6) Use the right or left arrows to save the settings and exit.

You should have your full screen back now minus the annoying black box.

If this solution has helped please do take a moment to rate it.

Thanks for using FixYa

A black rectangular black screen shows up but..... sony trinitron


Check the set up. You may have closed captioning turned on which will show up as a black box if there is no closed captioning information for the selected channel. If that fails to resolve the problem, update this.

Thanks,
Dan

Sony Trinitron 13 inch TV, KV-13M10. Cannot delete black text box


You must find the "All in one" remote. That will have a "display" button that needs to be pressed. You may just need to go to Radio shak and ask for an old one for a day to do it. Good Luck.

The black box your are seeing on the screen is the box to display text. It is listed under your "cc" closed captioning setting as T1, T2 etc. Go into your closed captioning and shut off the text. You can still leave closed captioning on or off. The text system was never really used but they put it on all of the TV's.
