That may be that one of the closed captioning modes has been enabled. One of the closed caption modes or text modes does the box in the centre of the screen. Make sure that the CC on the TV and cable box is not on.

Samsung screen goes grey with green letter? Have Comcast cable


When the green letters appear, turn off the cable box only.
If the screen changes, the problem is in the cable box or hookup.
If the letters stay, there is a problem in your TV.

I have the large grey square blocking the actual television picture also. It covers most but not all of the screen directly in the center. It goes away if I change channels or go to menu but comes back...


Check in the sets menu for closed captions and find TEXT.

The feature was never really used but a lot of sets have it=====a few cable or sat boxes also have this feature.

Turn it to off.


let me know if you have questions.

Tv goes on then right away a blueline across the center then goes black the power light starts blinking and stays black


It is an indication of faulty on the vertical section. Nowadays tv will automatically shuts off if you have a problem on the vertical output I.C. to protect your tube for burning the phuspor right on the middle of the screen which will affect on the picture later on.
I've adviced you to look for a qualified technician to isolate and replaced the faulty parts and do resoldering for some dry joints because sometimes dry joints damaged the parts.
Thanks for using fixya...

Black box in center of screen


The Panasonic call center helped us with this one. Our Closed Captioning had been turned on through the TV settings. This made us have a black box with everything besides our cable. Turning off CC on our TV Main Menu solved the problem for us.
