    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.

Technika tv/dvd the dvd is only in black and white and wont play the discs


you can try using a DVD cleaner disk on your unit, try several times to make cretin it is clean then try your DVD`s again, if the unit was stored in a damp area this may be a problem, DVD players can be finicky due to this, there may also be a manufacturing defect in the unit that made it fail prematurely.

Black box on top of screen during HDD playback mode


Problem solved! Thanks Panasonic Tech Support!!

In case anyone else has this problem, I'll tell you what I found out. This model DVD recorder does not have closed captioning functionality at all. So if this happens to yours, it is not the DVD recorder causing the problem. It is a setting on either your TV, cable box, or whatever else you have hooked up to it.

In my case, my daughter must have accidentally hit the "Text" option on our TV's caption menu. I changed that option back to its original setting, and the mysterious black box is gone.

VHS play back


I am having the same split screen black and white problem. I don't think anything simple will fix this. I have looked into the unit and almost all the video processing happens on one little PC board under the DVD. I think that the capacitors on the bottom of this board are at fault, as there have been MANY noted failures of Panasonic Professional DVC decks due to these type capacitors failing.
