Your closed captions are on and set to TEXT. Go into the menu, turn off the closed captions and the black box will vanish.

Goe to the setup menu and turn off closed caption.Does it do this on all inputs. Closed caption is only on rf input as far as the tv is concered. If this is happening on input which is connected to cable box or sat reciever call your serv provider.

Big Black Square

It turns out that the Closed Caption option was turned on somehow. When I turned that off the Black Square went a way and did not return.

A black box appears on the screen

Just happened to see your black box problem associated with your T.V.; Thought I would pass along an idea for you to check into, and let me know if it helped...Check into whether or not it has a onscreen text block mode, if it gets into this mode by accidentally pressing the wrong buttons on the remote and or TV, it could and I have seen, at least with zeniths, a big black box which will cover the whole screen except for a 2 to 4 inch border around the box and outer edge of the screen...if this is the case, find someone familiar with the correct setting for the set associated with this problem, and get it back into the right mode....Hope this helps..T.

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.
