Black box appears in television screen

A black box sometimes appears on my tv screen. Someone told me that it can be from having my closed captioning button on. why does this happen and how can I avoid it? It has happened on 2 different brand name sets; a Sony Trinitron and a Panasonic, both of which are tube tv's.

That's the captioning box, alright. Check through the options on your menu, or read through your owner's manual to get rid of that. There also should be a captioning key on your remote.

A black box keeps appearing in the middle of the screen and stays on until I either turn off the TV or turn on the settings screen and clear it


Somehow, the cable box or some other device changed the settings for the caption box on the TV. While no closed captions were appearing on the screen, the box was being displayed. The box stopped popping up when the captions setting was turned off.

meknow is right I think. To turn off your closed captioning hopefully all you need to do is get into the setup menu. You didn't list what kind of TV you have so this is a generic solution. Go into menu and in a setup menu there will be a closed captioning way to select to turn the box off.
The reason sometimes you see it and sometimes you don't is because some programs have closed cationing and some don't.
And because you are only seeing a blank box and not closed captioning is because there are different closed captioning standards. CC1, CC2, etc.
So if you can find the menu item that allows you to turn off the closed captioning, it would be a good start to solving your problem.
