Sharp 17" TV

On a few channels a black rectangular box appears after the set has been on a short period, less than a minute. You can switch channels and come back and it is ok for a few seconds, then the box comes back.Again this happens on a few channels.

Re: Sharp 17" TV

It's the Closed Captioning function I think. I've had the problem with my Sharp TV (and other TV's that have Closed Captioning function). Look at the menu or the manual to see how to turn off Closed Captioning. It might be marked as "CC".

Black rectangular box shows on screen

This is simple: set in the closed caption menu (some cable boxes also have it) called TEXT. Look in the menu and turn it off first in the set and also in the box used if used for signal.

Odd feature and never really took off--designed so some channels like PBS etc could broadcast text.

Can't change TV to CATV mode

You must unplug the cable connecting the television and the cable box. Then turn the television off and then back on. Do not turn the cable box off or disconnect the cable in wire from the cable box especially if you use Cable Vision. It will take up to 20 minutes before the box comes back on. Now turn the television back on. When you access the Channel System menu, you have the access to the submenu choices. Change the Antenna option to CATV and the Current Channel to 3. Reconnect the cable box to the TV.

Also those that are having problems with the TV turning off periodically, make sure the sleep mode option does not have a number in it. For example, if the number is 10, it will turn off every 10 minutes.

The lower half of the screen is a black box on one channel

Check your closed-captioning settings. You probably have it set for "text". Make sure you turn captioning off and the problem should clear up.
