    no picture behind the box. Box is black

  • timb44266 Jan 10, 2009

    I have tried three different portable units. I even plugged into the front of the set. The same black box appeared. The picture around the box is fine. The box may go away for a few seconds but always comes back. But only when we try to play a DVD.

    Might sound stupid, but is this a portable DVD or a home DVD that oyu are hooking up?

  • dhurt May 11, 2010

    Can you see the movie behind the box, or does it not play at all?

Sounds like you have your "closed caption" feature turned on. Go into your TV menu and turn it off.

Mitsubishi wd-60737 HDMI port 1 connected to cablebox. Screen is black and no sound. Cablebox is on, all cables connnected correctly and was previously working. Nothing new was done.


have you tried resetting your cable box? you can do this usually by either holding its power button in until all 3 lights light up, or by unplugging it from power , wait @ 30 seconds & plug back in .

Issue with our Toshiba 50H82 - overnight it has stopped playing DVD's properly - a solid black rectangle obliterates 75% of the screen. Any idea?


Hi,
Do you see same solid black box in all inputs or just in dvd picture?
If solid box appears only with dvd picture then its generated by dvd player, check dvd player Menu and turn off any subtitle settings.
And if solid black rectangular appears in all inputs of TV like cable etc then check Close Caption feature in TV and turn off CC function.
Hope this will solve your TV problem.
Thanks.

HDMI failure Samsung HL-R5087W 50 in HDTV


After reviewing the service manual for this set, the problem is is in the DIGITAL BOARD. To get the right Digital Board you will need the Version number of the TV.

Good luck

Can't get rid of black box


You have your TV in the "Teletext" mode. Go into the TV menu and select the closed-captioning menu and turn off the text function. What you are seeing is the result of the TV's captioning circuit latching onto a false text pilot signal and then throwing up the black box on the screen.

Black box showing up while viewing DVDs


This sound like a problem with the Closed Caption, on many sets if the C.C. is set to text a black box apears, and since it only happens on DVD you might look at the DVD menu and see if it has this Text featcher in the Closed Caption menu and turn it off
