I keep getting a black square in the middle of the picture. The sound stays on and the picture is behind the black square. How do I get rid of the black square for good

This is a caption for hearing impaired, grab remote! scroll down to captions, use right arrow 1,2,3,off when the cursor is flashing over the " off " press enter on the remote, that should restore the set. Some remotes have the captions on a separate button.
