Question about Toshiba CF36G40 36" TV

2 Answers

Big black box across the screen towards the bottom.

I was trying to program my DVR remote to work with my toshiba cf36g40 and all of a sudden a big black box appeared around the area that the volume screen comes up when changing the volume. it goes away for a min or two if i turn the tv off and it doesnt show up if on regular tv, just when the tv is turned to tv/video. i tried switchin to just a coax cable instead of the red white and yellow cables... not tech savvy sorry. please help.

    this is a 35" screen. Approx 15yr's old. Only 1 RCA input w/coax and S cable. All inputs have the same result. Yet the the black box does not appear with static on any random channel. The box is on the lower 1/3 of the screen centered and streching to 2" away from the edges. Box will disappear if menu or volume is used. Can take up to 10 seconds to appear. This all occured after attempting to program a universal remote for a dvr. Yet this has noting to do with the DVR. The DVD player and direct input all have the same result. Thank you in advance for your help. This TV weighs over 100lbs. I would hate to have to move it again.

    I have the same problem recently. For awhile it would go away if I turned everything off, then back on but now that isn't even working. Any solutions?

    I have the same problem, however the black box just randomly appeared. When I change channels, it goes away for a second but then comes right back. I have tried unplugging everything and it is still there.

In some TV's closed captioning can cause this problem. turn off CC and see if that helps.

Screen turn green tv is 57 rear projection


Good Day,
It appears that you may have a green drive issue. Try adjusting the Sreen Control it is located in the front of TV.
1) Remove Speaker Grill (it just pulls off) start at one end, 2) Remove cover (5-6 screws), 3) Adjust control. The control is located on lower right side towards bottom. A small black device with 2 rolls of controls, adjust the center control on bottom row counter clock wise, until you get a black and white picture.(adjust with color control to min).
If this does not work you light bulb (CRT) is bad about a $750.00 repair.

Good Luck, Big Irish.

Zenith TV has a big black box in the middle of the screen.


After reading other postings, we figured out that it was the caption box, went to menu and turned it off.
Thanks for the great site, we wouldn't have figured it out without it !

Big black box on screen


It has something to do with the closed captioning. He must have hit the closed caption button on your remote. You need to either turn the closed caption off or make another selection under closed captioning like cc1 cc2. Just keep making selections until the box goes away.

Black box appears in TV screen


The problem with the black box happened to me. I had pushed the subtitle button on my remote by mistake. Interestingly enough, as soon as I pushed the SUBTITLE key again, on the remote, the black boxes disappeared.

It also says CC which means closed captioned-- So the bottom on my remote is Subtitle, and then on the subtitle button is cc...

I hope this helps

Big black box in the middle of the screen


The black box is there because your closed captioning is on and set to text mode. Some channels send the signal even when there is no actual text to display. You can get rid of it by either turning off closed captioning or changing it to CC1 or CC2 mode instead of text. If you can't find those settings, then restore factory settings as directed in your user manual.
