Sounds like a closed caption/text box. Why don't you could go to your set up details and make sure you dont have TEXT OR CAPTION checked

When I play DVD's my tv screen gets a rectangle box on it, the VHS is fine, it's just the DVD player.


Yes! you are right, this almost sounds like a captions problem, check the DVD/VCR Combo menu, if it has captions turn it off using your remote.

In running a dvd as soon as i hit play a large black box appears covering all but 2" of the picture on all sides of the screen...i think it must be a setting but havent been able to figure it out.


This sounds like the text mode of closed caption but don't know why it would only be when playing dvd . Go into the setup menu of your dvd player and see if it has closed casption and if so turn it off. Hope this helps

Black Box


You have inadvertently activated one of the closed-caption modes called T1 or Text 1. Find out how to turn the closed-captioning off and on and you'll be able to turn this off.

Black box in middle of screen


It's a text box for either closed captioning or demonstration mode. Go into the setup menu and turn off closed captioning. If you have trouble doing that, then just restore factory settings.

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 showing up while viewing DVDs


This sound like a problem with the Closed Caption, on many sets if the C.C. is set to text a black box apears, and since it only happens on DVD you might look at the DVD menu and see if it has this Text featcher in the Closed Caption menu and turn it off
