Check in main menu (set and box if using one) under closed captions--one of the settings is TEXT--black box will appear in middle of screen and certain channels--with the remote turn text off.

On your Mitsubishi remote you will have a QV (Quick View) button. When the television asks for the code, just press and hold the QV and then number 9 button at the same time and it will unlock the set.
I would also go into the main menu and remove the code using the same procedure.

I hope that this helps you resolve your issue.
Thanks for using Fixya

Black spot on screen


Your son turned on the closed captioning text mode. The black box is where it would appear if there were any text. Go into your setup menu and turn off the captioning, or restore the factory presets.

My parent's JVC did this as well. It took us a little while to solve it (and through searching for how to fix it, found this post).

Using the JVC's remote control, we pushed the C.C. (closed caption) button and cycled to the "OFF" setting. That fixed it. Using the TV's front panel setting did not fix the issue, we had to use the remote control.

Note: the "text" CC setting re-displays the black box.

Black box in the middle of my mitsubishi tv


This is a common problem, some how you have the closed caption on and turned to the text mode. So to fix this scoll through the tv's menu and find the closed caption and tur it back off

Without the code, you must get an original remote and press the "QV" and the "9" buttons together to unlock the TV.
