Question about Zenith C27A24T 27" TV

1 Answer

Large Black Box Showing up in middle of screen.

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. A large black box appears out of the blue and takes up almost all of the bottom half of the screen, then letters appear on it. but when i turn the tv off then back on it goes away.

The dark rectangle appears because you have the closed captions on and set to TEXT. Closed captions set to CC1 puts the words on the screen and TEXT puts a black box on the screen. Go into the menu, navigate to the page with closed captions and set your captions to OFF.

There is a large black rectangle in the middle of the screen. It goes away for a second when I press the EXIT button on the remote and for about 4 seconds when I press the RECALL button on the remote. ...


This is a text box. This can be turned off under the closed captioning. There should be a cc button on your remote or the closed captioning features can be accessed from your television's menu. Turn closed captioning completely off to get rid of these text boxes.

Keep in mind that closed captioning can also come from your cable box or satellite receiver as well.

It's not a tech problem, or a tv problem, many local channels are "blackboxing" in advance of the move to HD. If you get an HDTV, or an HD adapter box, it should be fine.
