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.

    having the same problem how u get it off

    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.

Press the cc button on your remote control. You want cc to be off. Play around with the cc button to become comfortable. Press it over and over again. Observed that a different closed captioning option appears on your screen each time you press the cc button. Now press cc and when it says cc off do not press the button anymore.

Black box in center of screen


You have closed captioning on and in 'text' mode. Can be either in TV menu settings, a button on the TV remote, or set-up in a set top(cable/SAT) box.

Black box appears on tv screen then disappears. sometimes the box has letters in it. it last for a few seconds then it goes away


That sounds like a text box. Press the cc button and keep pressing it. You will see different closed captions options on your screen each time you press the button. Finally when it says cc off stop pressing the button and you should no longer get the black box. If you have a cable box connected you may also have to disable the captioning on it.

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.
