Black box covers television picture

When i turn on my TV i get a large black box that covers much of the screen ,you can see a little of the tv around the edges and also hear the tv. My satelite company thinks it has something to do with closed caption , I don't know how to turn this feature on or off ,if this tv has such. This box usually comes on after a few minutes and somtimes i can get it to go away by turning the tv on and off, sometimes it will stay off for seconds of several minutes.A couple of weeks ago it would just start changing channels on its on and i couldn't get it to the channel i punched in, that hasn't happened for awhile. is my tv dying, can you help?

Called a TV repair store, got info over the phone for no charge and the TV is now as good as new. You should tell folks about the charge straight up, I wouldn't mind paying for a service but think you should advise at the onset.

Black box in center of screen


The Panasonic call center helped us with this one. Our Closed Captioning had been turned on through the TV settings. This made us have a black box with everything besides our cable. Turning off CC on our TV Main Menu solved the problem for us.

On the reomte control (bottom) left of the sleep button is a cc button, push that until "OFF" appears on the screen. The close caption box should disappear. It worked for me, finally.
