You have to use the remote to turn off the closed caption. But I am sure that is the problem

Black box on screen


Without a picture of it it's hard to say what you mean. Sometimes on a CRT TV the vertical scan doesn't fill the screen, but that would cause a black band both top and bottom. The usual cause is a capacitor drying out. But only a qualified tech should look into that.

Magnavox t.v. Model # TS2760 C101 with black box on screen


Hello,

To fix this problem you need to go to the text probably in
the closed caption or thereabouts. Go to the text highlight it and cut the text OFF

It is very simple to cut the text off...a little practice and persistance and you
will find it.

Black screen


I work at at a school, and we had the same problem. Turns out, it a Closed Captioning problem.

We found the manual, and it states that "If a large black box covers 80% of your screen, the Text mode is probably set. Press 'Closed Caption' to turn it off." The "Closed Caption" button is on the remote. If you don't have the remote (as in our case), you can go to "Closed Caption" in the menu, and pick something like C4 and T4. That stopped the black box for us.

Big Black box covers screen


On the remote control is a button called closed caption or CC.. Someone turned on the closed caption. Simply turn off the closed caption. That black box is called the text box. Good Luck

Attention No Video Input


Check your input cabling and connectors and make sure you have a good input signal. Put another tv on this same input cable and see what happens. Keever
