Everytime I turn on the television there is a rectangle of black in the middle of the screen

This caused by the captions, get the remote, press menu, scroll down to captions, right arrow press 1, 2, 3, off when the cursor is over the off press enter on the remote and that should get rid of the black box.

Black box in middle of screen

It's a text box for either closed captioning or demonstration mode. Go into the setup menu and turn off closed captioning. If you have trouble doing that, then just restore factory settings.

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.

You have the closed captioning turned on to "Text" mode. Turn off the CC and it will go away.

Large Black rectangle on bottom half of screen

My mother-in-law had this problem on a Quasar for two years before she finally mentioned it. The rectangle is a text box for closed captioning or for a demonstation list of features, but without the text. I restored the factory presets and poof... problem solved.

Look in the manual and find how to restore the factory settings - it will probably be some weird combination of buttons that you would never guess. On her set, which has a built-in VCR, it was simultaneously pressing "play" and "FF" (on the set, not the remote) for five seconds until the set powered down. Yours will probably be something different but equally odd. That should get rid of the black rectangle. Then you go through the initial setup and you're back in business.

Tv repair

You don't have to buy a new tv, it is a fairly simple problem, your vertical ic is blown, and it could be the powersupply to the vertical ic also. To verify, slightly increase the screen voltage, and a horizontal line will appear on the screen, if the voltages is okay, change the ic, but first try resoldering the ic pins. Good luck

or off. They were on. I turned the caption settings off and the large square diappeared.

Turn off the closed caption with the original remote. If you do not have the origianal remote borrow one or buy one as you cannot remove the box or turn off the closed caption without it.
