Question about Hitachi 50UX57B 50" Rear Projection Television
Out of the blue a large black box shows up in the middle of the screen. It is a perfect rectangle and takes up about 80% of the screen. When you move the volume button or change a channel it goes away but comes right back. Used to be able to get to HD channels and it would not happen, now it happens on all channels regardless of the input, DVD, Cable box, direct cable.
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.
