Black square image on screen

We will be watching either tv or a dvd and all of a sudden a black square takes up almost the whole screen so you can't see the program. We have to switch channels so it will go away.

    I had this problem tonight and the closed captioning was not on. It was a black box so big that only about a 2" border of the screen was showing. I was using an RCA switch box and it hasn't happened again without the switch box but I honestly don't think it was the switch box. I think since our tv is days out of warranty it's decided to die on us.

Meknow is right I think. To turn off your closed captioning hopefully all you need to do is get into the setup menu. You didn't list what kind of TV you have so this is a generic solution. Go into menu and in a setup menu there will be a closed captioning way to select to turn the box off.
The reason sometimes you see it and sometimes you don't is because some programs have closed cationing and some don't.
And because you are only seeing a blank box and not closed captioning is because there are different closed captioning standards. CC1, CC2, etc.
So if you can find the menu item that allows you to turn off the closed captioning, it would be a good start to solving your problem.

Yes ,just turn off the closed caption.The black screen that you've seen is for the text massage,but since you had no massage written in the text box, that's why you see a black square cover your screen.

My LG TV has suddenly become darker all across the bottom of the screen (10cm strip) it still has colour but is darker. In left hand corner it is considerably darker and depending on what you are watching...


Hi; your TV has burn screen or traces.it comes from one image left on the screen for too long, it can get burned into the screen, making it visible at all times. You can actually eliminate most screen burns with the use of a PC computer and a black and white screen saver. This trick eliminates screen burn after a period of several minutes because the black and white screens flash quickly, removing all traces of color from the screen. This will eventually eliminate any burned images on the LCD screen. you can do it by creating a DVD picture slide with only black and white image. you can use a computer to make DVD picture slide first go to paint brush and draw only white then save as white.jpg. second burn it into nero or other dvd burner third play it to your DVD player connected to you LCD TV.it has to be played in full screen let the white image display on your HDTV for several hours or even overnight. It should remove any burned-in images or ghosts. hope this help...............
thanks....

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.

Black box on screen


On your remote should be a button called TV caption or text. Turn off the closed caption as someone hit it and turned it on by accident. If its not on your remote, then it is in the menu. Good Luck Ps Please dont forget to rate this thread.
