    Had to do with our new Sony DVD player, soft wear needed to be updated, it took a trip to the dealer, was too unclear in their instruction book.

    When playing our Sony DVD player(had it for years and problem just started) when the main attraction comes on a large black square consumes most of the screen!! It does not do this on the previews just the main flick. It is doing this on movies we own plus movies from Net flix. Net flix was clueless about the problem!

    HELP.

Has a black block in the middle of the screen when watching satelite. Is okay when watching DVD, or using the action screen


You may have activated one of the closed captioning modes. Double check the TV and may be the menu in the satellite has a caption mode. But I'm sure the Tv will be the problem!

Black square (parental Control??)


You'll have to go into the menu setting of the VCR and turn the controls off, also you can try completely unplugging the VCR and then plugging it back in again to see if it goes away.

Black screen


I have a Sharp Tv that had the same problem with a large brownish or black square right in the middle of the screen. It only left about an inch around the edges that you
could see the picture moving in behind the big black block or square.I have DISH sat-elite and the book recomending that I check and see if the "caption settings" were on
or off. They were on. I turned the caption settings off and the large square diappeared.
