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.

The TV has a Black cloud on the right half of the


My parents have the same issue with their Sony KDL-46V4100 TV and were told by the tech that the LCD screen was physically broken and would have to be replaced. The replacement of the screen would cost more than a brand new TV and the TV is not longer under warranty. After the TV is on for awhile the Black cloud goes away but it always comes back when they turn the TV off/on. It stays for 20 - 30 minutes sometimes. The Tech took both top corners of the TV and pushed one back and pulled one forward to show them he could recreate the problem after the black blob cleared up. By twisting the corners he made the blob reapper which he claimed was becuase of the damaged screen. I have no idea how the screen was damaged? I helped them take it out fo the box and set it up. We never dropped it bumped it once? It's never falled off the stand so go figure? It would be nice to find more people with this issue and get a recall going. Something that expensive should last longer than to two years.

Black box covers television picture


called a TV repair store, got info over the phone for no charge and the TV is now as good as new. You should tell folks about the charge straight up, I wouldn't mind paying for a service but think you should advise at the onset.

Black box comes up on tv screen


The black box is a text box for closed captioning. Some stations send the signal which turns on the box while not actually broadcasting any text. Go into your setup menu and turn off closed captioning, or at least change it to a different mode. The easiest option is to restore factory presets.

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.
