Most of the time this is caused by the television being in "Closed Caption Text" mode. You can verify this by changing chanels and the box should go away for a bit.

All you have to do is turn off Closed Captioning in the menu or by using the CC button on the remote.

Where is the engine air filter


It is in a big black rectangle shape box on the side of the engine compartment. There will be a black plastic tube shape going to it from the intake of your engine, There will be some snap type hold downs on it, pop those off, remove the top and take filter out. Take care.

My 32 lcd tv a black rectangle apears on aprox,


If it is a large black rectangle that blots out the middle of the screen then you need to check your CC (closed caption) setting. Make sure the closed caption is turned off. I'm not up to date on the newer sets, but a lot of the older ones had more than one CC setting. One setting ran the captioning across the bottom, another put it in a big black box in the center of the screen. Most places didn't support the full text so all that showed was a big black rectangle on the screen. Since I'm not sure exactly what your rectangle looks like, this is my best estimate of your problem. Hope this helps.

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 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.
