Question about Toshiba MW27F51 27 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo
Check your closed-caption settings. You will probably find that you have captioning on and set for "text" mode. Turn it off and the problem should go away.
What's happening is that with text mode on, the set clears an area (the black box) for text to be displayed, but there's no text. On channels or programs where captions aren't being broadcast, you don't have this problem. Most TV remotes have a button for quick access to caption settings, so it's easy to get this turned on without knowing it. Then you're suddenly facing the black box.
Please take a moment to give this solution a fixya rating if it gets your box cleared up, and thanks for asking here!
