Hello. Well it really sounds funny. Maybe the best solution is to get rid of this TV, but before that try to disconnect every equipment linked to TV set: DVD, VHS players, anything, even cable TV, satellite and antenna. Check that there are no cable connected in to INs and OUTs. Now try to see if any problem occurs. Maybe your TV set mismatches inputs with the main view

I get a black box that takes up half the screen and it puts random letters and symbols all over the box. it only happens on certain channels also. only on channel 17 and 7 and sometimes on 65


Look for the CC/Text button on the remote. The TV is in the TEXT mode and is showing garbage that is being sent by the broadcaster, You need to turn the CC/TEXT mode off.

I have a black box appearing on the bottom half of a 13" Magnavox television on only one channel. Can you tell me how to remove it?


Do you have the closed captioning on? Sometimes if it is in text mode, it will show up as a back box on the bottom on some stations, but not on others.

If you haven't already, view the station that has the black box on another tv to see if it was the station or just the tv. It may just be a station thing. It happens sometimes when they edit for a newscast and it accidentally comes up on screen.

Black boxes on a few TV channels - connected to DIRECTV


Turn off closed-captioning. You'll find it's set for "text" right now, probably from hitting a button on the remote without realizing it. The set is blanking the screen for the text which doesn't show up. (In your case sometimes it does. You're the first person who's ever seen anything that I've responded to!) On channels and programs where captioning isn't being sent the box doesn't show up, so you don't know you have the trouble.

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.
