Question about Proscan PS50700 50" Rear Projection Television

Blacked out box on lower half of screen

I get a blacked out box on the lower half of the screen--as if it is a text box for the menu. I punch the VCR button on the remote and the box disappears, giving me a full screen for a minute or so, then the black box again fills the lower part of the screen.

Hi, sounds like your closed captioning is turned on, go into the menu and look for "CC" or "text" and turn them off, video-tek

My JVC model AV-20F476 has a black-out box that covers most of the bottom half of the screen.


Go into menu and under CLOSED CAPTIONS look to see if TEXT is engaged---if it is set to text 1 turn it off or to text 2,3,4, etc

Text was a feature never really used but it is there, some cable boxes also have this setting/feature.

Let me know if you have questions.

There is a rectangular black box across the screen - it goes away when I use the favorite button and have multi screens showing - it returns when I close out the favorites. Color, sound, picture quality...


in the customer menu--find the closed caption settings---you will most likely find the set has been set to TEXT 1---with the remote select either CC1 or OFF---the black box was for text (books) and was not ever used much---usually someone engages it by accident

Black box in middle of tv screen


This is a background for text, even though you aren't seeing any text at the time. Since it covers most of the screen, it sounds more like a demo mode screen than closed captioning. Go into your setup menu and make sure that neither of those is selected. If necessary, restore the factory settings. I'm assuming that this is coming from the tv itself, and that you don't have a VCR, Tivo, etc. Good luck!

Can't get rid of black box


You have your TV in the "Teletext" mode. Go into the TV menu and select the closed-captioning menu and turn off the text function. What you are seeing is the result of the TV's captioning circuit latching onto a false text pilot signal and then throwing up the black box on the screen.

BLACK BOX APPEARS IN LOWER HALF OF SCREEN. It GOES AWAY BRIEFLY WHEN CHANGING CHANNELS or adjusting settings.


You have a closed caption setting turned on to text. Its probably near your channel up or down button. Keep pressing it, it will cycle through text1, 2, 3, 4, cc1 and cc2 and off. When you get to off leave it for a few seconds and it should disappear.

Black box showing up while viewing DVDs


This sound like a problem with the Closed Caption, on many sets if the C.C. is set to text a black box apears, and since it only happens on DVD you might look at the DVD menu and see if it has this Text featcher in the Closed Caption menu and turn it off
