Look first in the captions area for TEXT---if its on there will be a blank box in the middle of the screen but usually it will be black--look to see if TEXT is engaged.

This can come from either the set or a box connected to it for signal.

Under closed captions either the set or the box is set to TEXT--never used but many sets have this feature---check the menu in the set first and then if using a box for signal check there.

One of the two is causing this.

Go into the menu and see if your closed captions are on and set to "TEXT". Setting the closed captions to "OFF" should solve your problem.

TV is about 1 year old. Started yesterday having a black rectangle in the middle of the screen. Can press any button and it goes away but come's back in just a few seconds. Tv is a Element ELCHS321


Hi,
most times a black rectangle pops up when closed captioning is on. sometimes there will be gibberish in it sometimes not. See if you have button on remote labeled "CC" . Also if you have a cable or sat box make sure closed captioning is switched off there too.

I have a remote control TV. It is an old unit.


Hold in vol.up and vol. down at the same time. OR Channel up and channel down at the same time for 5 seconds. If you still have the same problem.Go into the menu and goto cc or close caption or text and turn it off. One of them should do it.

Black rectangle on screen


The box you're seeing is the "closed caption' box. You need to use the remote and disable CC mode on it, and the box will go away :)

Dark Translucent Rectangle appears in front of picture


Go into the customer menu and find the "closed captions" heading. Within the closed caption you will find "TEXT". If you turn off closed captions or the text, whichever you menu lets you do, your rectangle will go away. Hope this helps

Unwanted black rectangle on the TV screen


I'm not sure what type of TV you are using,, but most all Large Screens have a reset button someplace. You should be able to reset the TV and fix the problem. Its not the remote, making the image appear, but a command from it was misinterpeted. Sometimes turning the set off will work, but most often it needs to be reset.

EXCEPTION... if you are using a cable box. Disconnect it from power, wait 1 minute and then see if the problem exists. If the cable box is on even with the DVD you may still have this issue. Please reset the cable, and if that doesn't work, reset the TV.
Thanks! //D
