You have selected a text option and there is no text available. Also pressing the display button on remote could turn cc and text on or off. the black box is a text option not closed caption. page 70-72 in owners manual might explain better.

After a power flicker our TV Has a large black square in the middle of the screen. Problem is that the commercials are AOK but as soon as regular programming resumes....black box. HELP!!!PLEASE!!!


You have the closed-captioning turned on and set to "text" mode. It probably got set this way because of the flicker. Use the remote (or front panel menu buttons if this set has them) to get into the closed-caption settings. Turn captioning off and the box will be gone.

In case you're curious, the reason this happens is that the set clears the screen where the text will be displayed, but there's no text. On programs or channels without captioning the box disappears.

could see the picture moving in behind the big black block or square.I have DISH sat-elite and the book recomending that I check and see if the "caption settings" were on
or off. They were on. I turned the caption settings off and the large square diappeared.
