Question about Hitachi 50UX57B 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Black box I have this black box problem on my T.V.and cannot find the "closed caption" control anywhere in the menu or on the remote. I even ordered a manual from the manufacturer, nowhere in the manual does it say anything about the Closed Caption function. I have no idea how it got turned on. My latest step was to unplug it (20 minutes ago). It has been months since this happened and every so often I try different things, unlock, unplug and plug it right back in again. The picture behind the box is fine. It is really frustrating. Any other Ideas? I would appreciate any suggestions, before I throw it out the window (it's in the basement) Mitsubishi Model CS27205 Serial #518882 Thanks, Coleen Matlock

1) What is the signal source? Source box or cable direct?
    In other words, are we positive the text box is coming from
        the tv?
2) Hook-up the cable directly from the wall to the tv and get back to me.......T.

A black screen appeared on my TV. I know it has something to do with programing it using the remote control for the Insignia converter box, but I can not figure it out. can somebody help please? Thanks...

First look for the cc button (closed captioning) on the remote control. Press it several times back to back to scroll through the various options. Finally press the button until you see that it has cycled to "off." If this doesn't work then
Press menu and locate where the closed captioning settings are. You will see that you have the closed captioning set up for text. When you go into the closed captioning menu category and select off the black box will go away.

We get a black square on Fox and one children's cartoon network only. I have close captioning set off on my Uverse box menu. Is their anything else I need to do on the Olevia setup menu to eliminate the...

This is most commonly caused by the use of a Closed Caption text box. This type of Closed Caption is not always supported by the broadcaster, and results in the appearance of a black rectangle with scrambled or no text.

This can be quickly resolved by adjusting the Closed Caption type to "CC1" or by disabling the Closed Caption feature on your television.

get in the menu and change the close caption with the Olevia remote control

This should fix you right up

Black boxes in the middle of the screen are text boxes. Text is a part of the closed captioning feature either on your television or your cable/set top box. You would press the closed captioning button on the remote repeatedly until it displays cc off or something similar. Captioning might also be active on your cable box/set top box. There is normally a hidden menu on the cable box and that is where closed captioning is. You have to turn the cable box off. Yes I did say turn the cable box off. Then press the menu button on it and then the hidden menu will pop up. Then navigate to closed captioning and choose disable.

Turning off Closed Captioning

On the 27" TruFlat the closed caption button is hidden within the DVD buttons. You have to press it multiple times to shut off closed caption. It seems to have multiple sources for closed captions. Press the button until no source appears on the screen. ITS CONTROLED AT THE REMOTE CONTROL - NOT ON THE ON-SCREEN TV MENUS. Good Luck

Closed captioning wont turn off

Go to the local Walmart and buy a generic controller and program it to your set. Go to MENU and follow the prompts. The remote will be less than 20 bucks, and you will have a remote that handles the TV, the VCR, the DVD, and the cable box. We go through roughly ten remotes a year. They all make the closed caption go away. One tip: don't lose the manual, or you will need to buy another remote. If the batteries fall out, or go dead, the remote will have to be reprogrammed. Underline the code numbers that work.The black box goes away when the info button on the remote is pressed.

Black screen

I work at at a school, and we had the same problem. Turns out, it a Closed Captioning problem.

We found the manual, and it states that "If a large black box covers 80% of your screen, the Text mode is probably set. Press 'Closed Caption' to turn it off." The "Closed Caption" button is on the remote. If you don't have the remote (as in our case), you can go to "Closed Caption" in the menu, and pick something like C4 and T4. That stopped the black box for us.

Black Box On Screen

Salutations Cranberries,

The annoying black box is usually a feature of the closed captioning called "Text" You should be able to go in to onscreen menu and select caption options. Unless you need to have the closed captioning on for medical reasons, it maybe best just to turn off all captioning options.

Hope this helps.
Go Ahead. Use Us.
