Black Text Box Appears On TV (Food Network and Fox Channels)
I have a KV 40XBR800 and subscribe to Comcast.
Periodically I get a large black text box in the middle of the screen with gibberish text when I watch:
- the Food Network (most of the time and it doesn't disappear)
- Fox Network (sometimes and it will disappear after a few minutes)
The text gibberish may be some kind of signal info. The black text boxes do not appear on any other TVs in the house.

A solution I found for our KV-32XBR200 was to press Setup on top of the set, then select the "Demo" item with TV/Video. The text overlay apparently banished PIP. Verified this twice, as I'm at this page because our remote can only turn PIP on :-).
Go into the TV's closed-caption settings and turn off captioning. You'll find it's set for "text" mode right now. What's happening is that in text mode, the set blanks out the part of the screen where the text will go but there isn't any. On channels or programs where captions aren't being broadcast you don't see anything. With the captions turned off the box will go away.
go into your menu and find closed caption, someone has accidently set the closed caption mode to text, when the on screen display of channel or volume goes away the box appears. turn off the closed caption feature or switch it to something other than "text" mode, and your box will go away.
I programmed my PHILIPS Universal with code 0115 then the subtitle (CC) button worked no problem.I am sure any Universal remote with the subtitle button that u can program will work. My Comcast Remote would not work.Did This Help ?
