    Thanks. Solved the problem from another entry. It was the caption function that was turned on I guess but not working.

The "Caption" mode may be on and set to "Text". To fix press MENU button on the remote then use down arrow to select "Setup" and press ENTER. Select "Caption" and press ENTER. Select "Off" and press ENTER. Press MENU again to exit setup.

Black Rectangle on Bottom of Screen


It is your Closed Captioning malfunctioning. You can try and access the menu and turn the CC off but more times than not it is a malfunction that is unfixable.

Black rectangle on screen


The box you're seeing is the "closed caption' box. You need to use the remote and disable CC mode on it, and the box will go away :)

Visio LCD TV - Partial Picture blacked.


Hello! I have a 32" Vizio LCD...within 30 minutes of the tv being turned on, black lines start running through the bottom half of the screen and eventually blacking out the bottom half of the tv screen. It also doesn't have anything to do with the ratio as I have tried that. HELP!

Black Rectangle appears on bottom half of screen


Go into your setup menu and turn off closed captioning. The box is there for some channels even though no text is being sent. If you need to keep the closed captioning, try selecting a different mode for it.

Large Black rectangle on bottom half of screen


My mother-in-law had this problem on a Quasar for two years before she finally mentioned it. The rectangle is a text box for closed captioning or for a demonstation list of features, but without the text. I restored the factory presets and poof... problem solved.

Look in the manual and find how to restore the factory settings - it will probably be some weird combination of buttons that you would never guess. On her set, which has a built-in VCR, it was simultaneously pressing "play" and "FF" (on the set, not the remote) for five seconds until the set powered down. Yours will probably be something different but equally odd. That should get rid of the black rectangle. Then you go through the initial setup and you're back in business.

Blach rectangle bottom halfpart of screen


Salutations bachiche13,

It sounds like your "Text" feature of your closed captioning may be activated. It sounds like what you would want to do is go in to your television menu and select CC or Closed Captioning to mute or off.

Hope this helps.

Black Rectangles on 42" Vizio HDTV LCD


Your DirecTV signal is probably too low. That would produce the small black rectangles (pixilation). Also, try replacing the cable you are using to get the signal from the DirecTV receiver.
