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.

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.

Black rectangle shape on my tv


Most of the time this is caused by the television being in "Closed Caption Text" mode. You can verify this by changing chanels and the box should go away for a bit.

All you have to do is turn off Closed Captioning in the menu or by using the CC button on the remote.

Try and turn off the closed captioning. I had the same problem and it turned out that the closed captioning was on t1 instead of OFF. Hope this helps!!!!

Black Rectangle appears on bottom half of screen


Go into your setup menu and turn off closed captioning. The box is there for some channels even though no text is being sent. If you need to keep the closed captioning, try selecting a different mode for it.
