Question about RCA TruFlat 27F520T 27" TV

Turning off Closed Captioning

I have a used Akai CFT 2726 T.V., and I keep getting a black box blocking programming.
I'm assuming it's due to Closed Captioning.
I read that turning off closed Captioning should take care of the problem.
However I can't find the option for shutting it off.
I go into the menu and there are several captioning options ( T1-CC4) but none for shutting it off.
T.V. was set at T1.
I moved it to CC4 to see what would happen.
Since this t.v. was given to me, I don't have any manuals, guides, instructions, etc.
I also don't have the original remote.
I would really appreciate any help on how to disable the closed captioning.
Many thanks,
Barb from Nebraska Same problem with an RCA TruFlat TV/DVD combo. We've had it about 2 years now, maybe 3. There is no "OFF" option on the CC menu. Sometimes, the black box pops up blocking 95% of the screen. It seems very random. But the main question would be, since there is no OFF, how do you make sure it IS in fact off?

On the 27" TruFlat the closed caption button is hidden within the DVD buttons. You have to press it multiple times to shut off closed caption. It seems to have multiple sources for closed captions. Press the button until no source appears on the screen. ITS CONTROLED AT THE REMOTE CONTROL - NOT ON THE ON-SCREEN TV MENUS. Good Luck

A black screen appeared on my TV. I know it has something to do with programing it using the remote control for the Insignia converter box, but I can not figure it out. can somebody help please? Thanks...


First look for the cc button (closed captioning) on the remote control. Press it several times back to back to scroll through the various options. Finally press the button until you see that it has cycled to "off." If this doesn't work then
Press menu and locate where the closed captioning settings are. You will see that you have the closed captioning set up for text. When you go into the closed captioning menu category and select off the black box will go away.

There is a large black rectangle in the middle of the screen. It goes away for a second when I press the EXIT button on the remote and for about 4 seconds when I press the RECALL button on the remote. ...


This is a text box. This can be turned off under the closed captioning. There should be a cc button on your remote or the closed captioning features can be accessed from your television's menu. Turn closed captioning completely off to get rid of these text boxes.

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

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.

After a power flicker our TV Has a large black square in the middle of the screen. Problem is that the commercials are AOK but as soon as regular programming resumes....black box. HELP!!!PLEASE!!!


You have the closed-captioning turned on and set to "text" mode. It probably got set this way because of the flicker. Use the remote (or front panel menu buttons if this set has them) to get into the closed-caption settings. Turn captioning off and the box will be gone.

In case you're curious, the reason this happens is that the set clears the screen where the text will be displayed, but there's no text. On programs or channels without captioning the box disappears.

MINTEK TV - Black screen in the center of the picture


This is the closed captioning text box. Search the menus to turn off closed captioning. The reason for its seemingly random appearance is that not all channels nor all programs provide this service.

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.

Black square image on screen


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.

Black Box On Screen


Salutations Cranberries,

The annoying black box is usually a feature of the closed captioning called "Text" You should be able to go in to onscreen menu and select caption options. Unless you need to have the closed captioning on for medical reasons, it maybe best just to turn off all captioning options.

Hope this helps.
