Tip

Curing the "black box" on some TV channels


Here's the symptom: A mysterious black box covers some or most of the picture on your TV, but not all the time. It may not show up on all channels, or sometimes it disappears only to come back later.

No, it's not the picture tube, it's your closed-captioning. Somehow your TV has been set to "text mode", and the screen is being cleared for text that isn't there. On channels or shows where captions aren't being broadcast, there's no box. But the box returns when captioning is being sent.

Many TV set remote controls have a single button to set closed-caption modes, so it's easy to set a TV to "text" without knowing it. (Especially when you have kids who love to press buttons!) Then when the box pops up, it's a mystery.

Simply press the captioning button on the remote, or use the set's menu, to cycle through the settings until you turn captions off. No more box!

Can't get closed captioning to work on westinghouse 46" 4680 led tv


What is the video source? Some set-top boxes send a closed caption signal that doesn't match the TV's CC interpreter. For those devices, you need to enable the captions on the set-top box.

I know how to enable captions on one particular Dish satellite box. The steps will depend on if your TV is TV1 or TV2 connected to the box. If the TV is TV2, you need to set the box in Single mode (so both TVs are set to the same channel). This is done with the Mode button on the box itself (highlight Yes and click Select using the Dish remote when prompted to go to Single Mode). If the box is in Single Mode, you won't get a prompt but the unit will go to Dual mode. There is a small LED on the box to indicate Single or Dual mode.

Next press Menu on the remote and go to Properties (9). Click Select and then navigate to Closed Captions (6). Click Select. Go to the Closed Caption On/Off line (1) and press the left arrow and then the up/down arrow to set to the captions to On. Press the right arrow and then Select with Done highlighted. Exit the Menu by hitting Cancel repeatedly.

I hope this helps.

I have an Orion 19"


You usually need the original remote. The trouble with universal remotes is that they generally control only the basic functions of a TV (power, volume, channel) but not much else. Without the original, you often lose other functions. You can try the front panel buttons if yours has them. On some sets the on-screen menus allow you to access caption settings.

But are you sure the captions are coming from the TV? Sure, the TV is displaying them, but if you have a satellite receiver, cable box or digital set-top box, the captions may be coming from that device. This is likely to be true if the captions just mysteriously started and you don't have or aren't using the TV original remote. These devices often don't allow a TV's built-in caption decoder to work properly, so they provide captions themselves. You may have turned captions on using that device's remote. Check the menu for caption controls.

I haven't been able to put closed captioning on tv. I don't understand how and what code to use to get the closed captioning to work.


Enable Caption Using the Original Remote
  1. Press the [CCD] button to change the CCD mode.
  2. Using this button will set the Closed Caption mode when viewing a DTV or TV channel.
Enable Caption Using the TV Menu
  1. Open the Menu screen, select the third icon, in the middle, this is the Setup Menu.
  2. In the Setup Menu, choose the Caption option.
  3. Caption: There are three items in it - Analog Closed Caption, Digital Closed Caption and Digital Caption Style
  • Analog Closed Caption: CC1, CC2, CC3, CC4, TEXT1,TEXT2, TEXT3, TEXT4.
  • Digital Closed Caption: Service1, Service2, Service3, Service4, Service5, Service6.
  • Digital Caption Style: There are two Caption Styles. One is the automatic function set as the broadcaster, while the other is the custom style where you can adjust the font size, color, opacity, background color etc., accordingly.

Okay, have Hitachi 1080 HD. Called several times to Customer Service but they couldnt help. Cannot get the words in English to appear on screen for hard of hearing.


Look in the tv menu for SET UP or AUDIO options.

Look for CAPTION VISION and set to CC1.

Now exit the menu screen.

Now use the INFO or DISPLAY button on the remote to activate the closed captioning.

It should say something like CC1 ON once you get it right.

That should be about it.
Note that not every single channel has closed captioning for every single show and that the words usually take a few seconds to show up on the screen when you change to a new channel.

Good luck, hope this helps. Keep us updated on your progress.

After the tv is tuned to a new channel, a black square appears over the majority of the screen. The Direct TV tech said that it was a parental control feature that needed to be reset


Actually, your TV's closed-captioning is turned on and it's set to "text" mode. This causes the set to blank out the area where the text would go if there was any. Most remote controls have a single button to turn captioning on, so it's easy to get into this mode without knowing it. Press that button or use the TV menu to go through the caption settings to turn them off, and the box should go away. (Parental controls don't just blank out a part of the screen; they disable the channel completely. I hate it when a technician won't say "I don't know" and then gives out wrong information.)

There is a big black box blocking the screen and it will not come off. how do i solve this problem without a original remote.


Check your TV's closed-caption settings. You'll likely find it's set for TEXT mode. Turn off captions or set for CC1 or CAPTION 1 if you want to use the captions. Your trouble is due to the set blanking out a block on the screen where the text should go, but there isn't any text to display. Most TV remotes have a single button for caption control, so it's easy to get into text mode without knowing it. Then on channels where captions are being broadcast you'll see the box. On other channels or programs you don't see it.

Please take a moment to give this solution a fixya rating if it clears up your trouble, and thanks for asking here!

Black square in middle of screen


Hello,

Most often, these "black box" problems are caused by Closed Captioning being on. There are different types (cc1, cc2, Text, etc.), and different ones interpret different types of closed captioning that are broadcast from the station. It is usually the TEXT ones that cause this problem, because the TV can't interpret the closed captioning symbols it is getting.

On your original TV remote, see if there is a button marker "close caption" or CC. Try pressing this button several times until "closed caption off" or OFF appears on the screen. If there is no button on the remote, then you have to get into the menu of the TV to find the closed caption and turn it off.

I hope this helps you...
