Hello, I reviewed your information and I hope this will work for you. It sounds like the CC button on the remote was pushed, please try pushing the CC button 1 time, then again, this should take the black box off the screen it is used for Closed Captioned T.V. Have a ggod evening and llok forward to hearing back from you.

Is there a button labeled picture? if so press it (you might have to press it twice before it steps to a new aspect ratio, then once for every different aspect ratio until you get the one you like.

Why does the screen have Black Border around the picture , picture distorted?


There are connectors and circuitry that control the vertical and horizontal picture image generation that need to be at the edges of the screen. The border simply covers these connectors and circuitry so the user cannot see it. Newer models of flat panel TV's solve this problem better to get more picture real-estate to the user. Flat panel TV's are not like the original CRT (cathode-ray) TV's of the past that had borders to conceal a non-linear distortion that occurred at the edges.

Black border with some channels


Hi,
if you mean the left and right sides of screen, look for a button on remote might be labeled several things, like picture size, aspect etc.. the borders pop up when you go to a non high def channel. some chs put borders all around the picture in those cases you won't be able to get rid of those.

Black screen keeps popping up


If a black box appears on the screen, and a small amount of the picture is visible around the border, it means that your closed captions are on and set to TEXT. Go back into the menu, navigate to the closed captions page and set the captions to OFF.
