Black Message Window

I am getting a black message window that reads "this is a string to test Text mode startup message function". What can I do to fix this? I was able to just press any button on the remote and it would go away, now it only goes away for 30 to 45 seconds.

Black window appears over the picture screen and won't delete.Cable company says it is a TV problem not cable.

Check settings for closed caption and/or text description and turn them off if you do not need them. Some settings will put the black box on the screen even if there is no text input to show.

Go into your settings of the TV menu or there will be a single button on the JVC remote marked "CC" for closed caption. Press it or in the menu turn off the "TEXT" mode. With the text mode on you are allowing the TV to display text information wich means usually a black rectangular box that appears on the screen with no text in it. Usually on the cc button just press it until it scrolls through turning off the CC or text modes.

Black Rectangle blocks TV screen

Ok, your only problem is that you have the close caption on. You also have it in text mode. That is why you get that black box. Just go into the menu and turn the close caption off.

best regards

It is the TEXT mode of the closed captioning system, just go to the closed caption in the menu and change to off.

Black screen

It really sounds like the child lock has been activated. This uaually blocks the keys on the TV, but the remote should work. If your remote doesn't work either, make sure the batteries work. If your remote for the TV can operate other apliances such as a VCR or DVD player, make sure it is in TV mode. If there are any buttons marked TV, VCR, DVD you could try pressing the TV button to set it in TV mode. If the To has a text-tv function there might be more than one button marked TV; one for setting TV mode as posed to DVD operating mode, and one for getting TV picture back when viewing text pages. -Chris
