Black square in middle of screen

During program viewing a random black opaque square appears and leaves once you press any button on the remote, but then reappears at random, there is no consistency to this problem, except for the size and colour of the square itself.

thanks,
Richard

Sounds like your closed caption is on. In the menu or on the remote there should be a setting or button for the CC. It seems to be in the text mode. Either turn it off or change the setting from text.

Black square on screen of 19 inch TV


Check your closed-caption settings and be sure they are turned off. If captioning is set for text mode you can have this trouble. The TV blanks out a part of the screen for the text it never gets to display. Once captioning is shut off (or set for normal caption mode if you want to use it) the black box will be gone.

Black square in middle of screen


Hello,

Most often, these "black box" problems are caused by Closed Captioning being on. There are different types (cc1, cc2, Text, etc.), and different ones interpret different types of closed captioning that are broadcast from the station. It is usually the TEXT ones that cause this problem, because the TV can't interpret the closed captioning symbols it is getting.

On your original TV remote, see if there is a button marker "close caption" or CC. Try pressing this button several times until "closed caption off" or OFF appears on the screen. If there is no button on the remote, then you have to get into the menu of the TV to find the closed caption and turn it off.

I hope this helps you...

Screen problem


That's the text box function of the closed caption decoder. Look for buttons with "CAP", "TEXT","CCD", or "CLOSED CAPTION". Look in menu for same.
