Black Box comes up on the screen while on with lettering inside

I have a 32" insiginia TV and while it is on, a black box comes up on the screen. In the box letters and numbers go across the inside of the box. Checking of what causes this. Does not happen all the time, but notice it on a daily basis. To clear the black box, I just push the menu button on the screen.

    I have Directv and have the same problem with my Insignia. I changed satellite boxes ( HD to non-HD box ) and no help.

    I also have found that pressing the menu button clears it but it does come back. My set is 2 years old and this started to happen in March 2009.

    Directv said they are not having any programming or tech problems so it must be my TV.

    I agree with the other person, buy a cheap set and you can expect these problems. Best Buy ( where I bought it ) wants $300.00 to just come out and look at the thing.

I would like to know why random numbers and symbols come up on my tv. It's very odd.

If this is the box for the "hearing for impaired" text, then check that your getting a good strong HD signal, and make sure closed captioning is turned off.

Black box comes up on tv screen

The black box is a text box for closed captioning. Some stations send the signal which turns on the box while not actually broadcasting any text. Go into your setup menu and turn off closed captioning, or at least change it to a different mode. The easiest option is to restore factory presets.
