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!

Black box blocks out lower half of television screen


Check your closed-caption settings. If you have captions on and set to "text" mode, this can happen. The TV blanks out the area on the screen where the text should go, but there's nothing to display. Turn off captions or set for regular caption mode, and that should clear up the mysterious box.

Square Black marquis takes up the screen seconds after channel changes. Can't make it go away.


Check your closed-caption settings. You will probably find the TV is set for "text" mode right now. There's usually a single button (may be marked "CC" or "Caption") on the remote control to choose the setting. It's easy to bump the button accidentally and set captions without realizing it. When set for text, the TV blacks out the area where the text would go if there was any. Turning captions to "off" will clear up the mystery.

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.

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 translusent rectangle (band) lower mid screen


You have the closed captioning turned on and it's set to "text" mode. On channels where closed captioning is being broadcast the set is clearing the screen for the text which isn't there. That's why you don't see it all the time or on every channel. Just use the remote or front panel buttons to go to the caption settings and turn it off.
