Question about Toshiba 32A33 32" TV

A black box appears at the bottom of the screen

My husband was trying to program the TV using the universal remote. He did something that made a black box appear in the lower half of the screen. Now we can't get it to go away. Any ideas?

It sounds like you have enabled Closed Captioning and the channel that you are watching does not have that info. There should be a way to turn it back off either directly with a button on the remote or throught the menus. Look for CC.

Black box covers most of the tv screen.


Just use the remote to turn off the closed captioning,The button should be marked as CC or you can just go into the menu and turn it off.

Black rectangle on screen


The box you're seeing is the "closed caption' box. You need to use the remote and disable CC mode on it, and the box will go away :)

Black box appears in TV screen


The problem with the black box happened to me. I had pushed the subtitle button on my remote by mistake. Interestingly enough, as soon as I pushed the SUBTITLE key again, on the remote, the black boxes disappeared.

It also says CC which means closed captioned-- So the bottom on my remote is Subtitle, and then on the subtitle button is cc...

I hope this helps

Tv is locked


I had the exact problem...tried a number of things that did not work. My dog "ate" my original remote. After reading your solution I took the universal remote that was programmed to work with the tv and tried holding down each button for a few seconds hoping that one would work like the display button on the original remote. It worked. I have a GE universal remote and the menu/info button worked for me. Again, you need to hold it in for a couple of seconds. Thanks for the help and I hope my added solution helps other people. Claudia in Minnesota
