Black box shows on tv with cable or dvd, not vhs

We have a black rectangle that shows up on most of our screen when watching tv or a dvd, but the picture is fine for vhs viewing. We can press the menu button on the tv and see the menu, but when the menu closes, the black rectangle shows up again. We have a dual vhs/dvd player hooked up to the tv and cox cable service. Thanks!

Why did a rectangle box appear on the screen

PIP is on (Picture in Picture) either from your cable box or the TV. Check your remotes for "PIP". If you still have an issue, post a comment and I can help you more

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 :)

Black Rectangle appears on bottom half of screen

Go into your setup menu and turn off closed captioning. The box is there for some channels even though no text is being sent. If you need to keep the closed captioning, try selecting a different mode for it.

Black Rectangle blocks TV screen

Ok, your only problem is that you have the close caption on. You also have it in text mode. That is why you get that black box. Just go into the menu and turn the close caption off.

best regards

Black box on screen

On your remote should be a button called TV caption or text. Turn off the closed caption as someone hit it and turned it on by accident. If its not on your remote, then it is in the menu. Good Luck Ps Please dont forget to rate this thread.
