A black box keeps popping up on the screen on my Emerson LC320EM1F

Black box pops up on screen , sometimes with letters,other times blank. I have to turn tv off then on and it goes away but comes back 5 minutes later. It does this at least twice a week. Why does this black box pop up all the time?

Hi, go into your menu and turn off closed captioning, sometimes listed as "CC" instead of spelled out "closed captioning", this will fix ya, Happy Holidays, BMW Rider

I think that the pop you heard was an electrolytic capacitor blowing its top on the picture frame board. If you are able to check this for yourself by looking on the board for the one/s with a bulging top or are a brownish/black colour like something has caught fire. And also in this situation smell can be of great help as it will smell burnt out but PLEASE before putting your nose or anything else in the tv take all necessary precautions against electric shock and discharge any electrolytic capacitors in the vicinity. If you are not able to do this yourself find a competant technician. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Black box in center of screen

The Panasonic call center helped us with this one. Our Closed Captioning had been turned on through the TV settings. This made us have a black box with everything besides our cable. Turning off CC on our TV Main Menu solved the problem for us.

I bought an emerson tv from walmart on Black Friday LC320EM1F. Can you tell me the code for the remote for Dish Network, please. Thanks.


can you return the tv? I got mine from my dad for christmas and its already screwed up. Just sitting there on my bed suddenly the tv starts flashing different colors and pops. Right after it startled me I turned it right off. Then I turn it back on and change the channel, 5 minutes later the same thing happened, so I unplugged it and thats how it is right now. My point AKA the tv is ****.

Black boxes on a few TV channels - connected to DIRECTV


Turn off closed-captioning. You'll find it's set for "text" right now, probably from hitting a button on the remote without realizing it. The set is blanking the screen for the text which doesn't show up. (In your case sometimes it does. You're the first person who's ever seen anything that I've responded to!) On channels and programs where captioning isn't being sent the box doesn't show up, so you don't know you have the trouble.

Black square box pops up in the middle of tv screen.


It is most likely related to the Closed Captioning option on your TV. Go into settings and make sure that CC is turned off, or make sure it's set to CC1. What you are probably seeing is the "text" option included in the CC options.

Black Box


i had the same problem with my rca truflat.. i read from a posting of a similar problem with a different tv brand to switch your closed caption options 'off' or set it to a 'cc' option instead of the 't' options.. (this was done through the on-screen menu..) i gave it a try and it worked for my tv.. hope it works for you..
