    Sorry it took so long to respond. I was just waiting to see if it (the black square returned)....The solution was perfect. It was much easier than working the remote....Thank you for the help. I have been watching tv and having to hit the volume every three min. to see the picture again for months.....Thanx again...

    I have the same problem with the black square in the middle while watching TV, I tried turning off the closed caption and it didn't work for me. What can I do to get rid if it? It's very annoying.
