I have a black square box that resides in the middle of the picture. It is not the closed the TV toast or is there a chip replacement or some other fix that is not cost prohibative?

I would recheck the cc and make sure it is OFF. It has to be set to TEXT for the black box to be in the MIDDLE of the screen. Also make sure the MUTE is not on. There is nothing else that I know of that would generate a box in the middle of the screen, any other problems would knock out an entire section of the screen.

Black square in middle of screen about 25in X 25 in

If a black square appears on the screen and you can see the picture around the edges, it means that the closed captions are on and set to "TEXT". Go into the TV's menu, navigate to the closed captions page and set the captions to OFF.
