Go to your menu and turn it off. Or, turn your tv off and unplug it give it 5 minutes to let it reset so it doesnt keep it stored, and turn it back on.


Depends on TV i guess.

good luck.

Toshiba big tv. Comes on fine nice picutre. about 10 seconds after turn on a "black rectangle" appears in the lower half of the screen


Chances are it's just the closed captioning is turned on and set for "text" mode. Use the remote to go through the caption settings until it's turned off and that should clear up the box.

I've written a tip that explains what's happened and how to take care of the problem.

A black box keeps appearing in the middle of the screen and stays on until I either turn off the TV or turn on the settings screen and clear it


Somehow, the cable box or some other device changed the settings for the caption box on the TV. While no closed captions were appearing on the screen, the box was being displayed. The box stopped popping up when the captions setting was turned off.

The closed caption feature has two options:
• Captions—An on-screen display of the dialogue, narration, and
sound effects of TV programs and videos that are closed

2. Press MENU, and then press x or • until the CUSTOM menu

3. Press z or y to highlight CC.
4. Press x or • to highlight the desired closed caption mode, as
follows:
• To view captions, highlight C1, C2, C3, or C4 (C1 displays
translation of the primary language in your area).
Note: If the program or video you selected is not closed captioned,
no captions will display on the screen.
• To view text, highlight T1, T2, T3, or T4.
Note: If text is not available in your area, a black rectangle may appear on your screen. If this happens, turn the Closed Caption feature OFF.
To turn off the Closed Caption feature:
Highlight OFF in step 4.
Note:
A closed caption signal may not display in the
following situations:

At random a black retangular box appears on the screen


Go into the TV's closed-caption settings and turn off captioning. You'll find it's set for "text" mode right now. What's happening is that in text mode, the set blanks out the part of the screen where the text will go but there isn't any. On channels or programs where captions aren't being broadcast you don't see anything. With the captions turned off the box will go away.

This worked on my tv...give it a try:

go into your menu and find closed caption, someone has accidently set the closed caption mode to text, when the on screen display of channel or volume goes away the box appears. turn off the closed caption feature or switch it to something other than "text" mode, and your box will go away.

Black square in middle of screen about 25in X 25 in


If a black square appears on the screen and you can see the picture around the edges, it means that the closed captions are on and set to "TEXT". Go into the TV's menu, navigate to the closed captions page and set the captions to OFF.
