Dark Translucent Rectangle appears in front of picture

SVA HD4208Tiii-PDP 42" plazma
It came out of nowhere last night:  A dark translucent rectangle fills all but 2 inches of the viewing screen.  I can see the picture under the dark rectangle and the edges of the screen not covered by the rectangle are normal picture. I swaped input jacks to AV-1, AV-2 and s-Video and each time the same rectangle pops up after about 10 seconds. I can change channels and for several seconds the picture is normal then the dark rectangle appears....and stays. John in Tampa

Go into the customer menu and find the "closed captions" heading. Within the closed caption you will find "TEXT". If you turn off closed captions or the text, whichever you menu lets you do, your rectangle will go away. Hope this helps

Is there a remote for SVA PDP HD4208TIII that is a universal remote or would I have to buy the original one for approx $40 ish ????


There are universal remotes that seem to be able to operate almost anything, available at stores, but I don't know how much you would save over the $40 original... The Universal remote could be used with a new TV when you replace this one, though.

Your TV may not support your HD channel signal. Check with HD DVD & non-HD DVD players to confirm.

Zenith SL2773W problem


The dark rectangle appears because you have the closed captions on and set to TEXT. Closed captions set to CC1 puts the words on the screen and TEXT puts a black box on the screen. Go into the menu, navigate to the page with closed captions and set your captions to OFF.
