Re: blach block out

If your big black square starts about the middle of the tv & goes down close to the bottom, you have closed caption text turned on. normal closed caption is small, but test caption, is just a big black box with no writing in it. go into your menu & shut it off, it could even be a button on your remote called, "caption", or "cc". good luck.

Tv comes on then black square pops on screen

Closed caption option is "ON". Just turn it 'OFF' If the remote control of your tV has a "CC" button. press it once. If it has't that button, you have to enter its Menu option, surf through, and come to closed caption function window, and select the closed caption OFF.

After the tv is tuned to a new channel, a black square appears over the majority of the screen. The Direct TV tech said that it was a parental control feature that needed to be reset

Actually, your TV's closed-captioning is turned on and it's set to "text" mode. This causes the set to blank out the area where the text would go if there was any. Most remote controls have a single button to turn captioning on, so it's easy to get into this mode without knowing it. Press that button or use the TV menu to go through the caption settings to turn them off, and the box should go away. (Parental controls don't just blank out a part of the screen; they disable the channel completely. I hate it when a technician won't say "I don't know" and then gives out wrong information.)

The TV is a Mitsubishi CS-26201C to the extent it matters and the remote is the original remote. A small child played with the remote and now a black square pops up and covers vitrtually the entire screen...

The child managed to press the button on the remote that controls closed-captioning, and now the TV is set for "text" mode. I don't remember if the button says "caption" or "cc", but it's one of those or something very similar. Press the button again to go through the settings until you get back to "off" and the box will be gone.

What's happening is that in text mode, the TV blacks out the area where the text would go. If there isn't any, the result is that mysterious black square. It may not show up at all on some channels, or only during some programs. It depends on whether captioning is being broadcast. Since many TV remotes have a single button to control caption settings, it's easy to get into this mode without realizing it. But it's easy to fix.

Hope this helps! Thanks for using Fixya.

Large black square blocks screen

Most likely it's the closed captioning has been turned on. From your post I assume you have the remote control and able to access the menus so try to turn off the closed captioning. I'll be notified if you post something new.
