Black Box over screen when playing DVD's

Anyone have this problem. I have a panasonic player and when I scroll through the menu or press play or select any function when playing a DVD, a black square appears on the screen. I was told to reset my factory settings. Any one know how? I don't.

Just bought an RCA tv that came from a hotel,model # J27330BL, and trying to reset to factory defaults as it only allows certain channels to be utilized. Also, trying to get reset so I can switch to...

There's no way to reset factory default but can access service menu, Hold down menu button on front panel and press volume up and power at the same time, on the top right screen, use volume up, Press to scroll to 72, press volume up and your are in the service menu.

My RCA 32" TV 2001 is black and white but the menu

Ours had a problem like that. The digibox and the dvd player (anything plugged in with a SCART lead) only played in black and white but the tv menu screen was in colour.
Also anything plugged in with those three little thingies, the red/yellow/white thingies, played in colour so we just bought a converter between SCART and the three thingies.
Sorry for how useless this was, I'm not great with all the technical language. Hope it helped in some way.

Require a code to unlock my Panasonic ntsc DVD A310u/ca. Also my Toshiba DVD SD100EE.

Put DVD into player - wait for regional code violation screen to appear. Once this happens press the M (Memory) button on your remote control. Then press 1 for Title 1 and press play on the remote. This will over-ride the regional code violation detection menu and you can watch the movie etc by entering the fwd on the remote control and change chapters etc by using the T (Title/Chapter) button on the remote control)----
This is the only unlock I can find for Toshiba DVD players, yours was not listed but I thought worth a go, I donn't have one for the Panasonic, sorry.

In running a dvd as soon as i hit play a large black box appears covering all but 2" of the picture on all sides of the screen...i think it must be a setting but havent been able to figure it out.

This sounds like the text mode of closed caption but don't know why it would only be when playing dvd . Go into the setup menu of your dvd player and see if it has closed casption and if so turn it off. Hope this helps

Black screen

I work at at a school, and we had the same problem. Turns out, it a Closed Captioning problem.

We found the manual, and it states that "If a large black box covers 80% of your screen, the Text mode is probably set. Press 'Closed Caption' to turn it off." The "Closed Caption" button is on the remote. If you don't have the remote (as in our case), you can go to "Closed Caption" in the menu, and pick something like C4 and T4. That stopped the black box for us.

Sounds like your "CC" (closed captioning) is turned on and it is set to text mode.Go into the menu and turn the closed captioning "off". The default v-chip unlock code is "0000"
