Re: STRING Testing TExt Mode

Bill, it seems someone has turned on the closed caption feature on this set. There is a button on the remote control thatsays Cartion. Press it till you turn the caption off. This will not be on a universal remote, only the original remote. Good Luck Please do not forget to rate this thread.

Black box covering part of screen

That is coming from the closed captioning. It has been turned on and it is in text mode. The captioning is most likely coming from the television but it can also be coming from your cable box/satellite receiver. Find your television remote's cc button and press it until it says off on your screen. If your remote does not have one closed captioning should be in the menu. If the text box is coming from a cable box there are a couple of ways to disable it not limited to a button on the remote and a hidden menu you can access when turning it off from the on off button directly on it and pressing the menu button located directly on it.

Keep in mind also that closed captioning can also come from your cable box or satellite receiver.

Black box in middle of tv screen

This is a background for text, even though you aren't seeing any text at the time. Since it covers most of the screen, it sounds more like a demo mode screen than closed captioning. Go into your setup menu and make sure that neither of those is selected. If necessary, restore the factory settings. I'm assuming that this is coming from the tv itself, and that you don't have a VCR, Tivo, etc. Good luck!

Black box on screen

Check your closed-captioning setting and make sure captioning is turned off (or set for captions if you really want them). You'll find it's set to "text" mode right now. The set is blanking out a portion of the screen to display text it never receives, and you'll only see this when you view a channel where captions are being broadcast. Most sets have a button on the remote for captions, and it's easy to switch modes without knowing it. Then you wind up with the mysterious black box.

If this helps you out, please take a moment to rate the solution. Thanks for asking here!

A black box sometimes appears on my tv screen. can you tell me if this is from having the closed caption butten on and why it happens?

Yes, if the closed caption mode is turned on in 'text mode' the set will display a black box even when no closed caption text is available. the normal closed caption mode is cc1. try turning closed caption to cc1 or off. tech7

String test

Possibly the closed caption feature on this set has been turned on. There is a button on the remote control that says Caption. Press it until you turn the caption off. This will not be on a universal remote, only the original remote. You can also turn this off through the caption section on your on-screen menu.
