Question about Philips Televison & Video

1 Answer

My Philips 50PF9956/37 TV has a black box in the center of the screen that won't go away. Not Closed Captioning.

It started about a month ago. When I turned the TV on, the box would disappear after 10 minutes. Gradually it increased to an hour before disappearing and now it won't go away. Can anyone please give advice regarding cause and whether it can be repaired? Thank you.

MINTEK TV - Black screen in the center of the picture


This is the closed captioning text box. Search the menus to turn off closed captioning. The reason for its seemingly random appearance is that not all channels nor all programs provide this service.

Black box


Make sure your closed-captioning is turned off. This box appears when you have captioning set for "text" mode and the set is on a channel where captions are being broadcast. The TV blanks the part of the screen where the text would go, but there isn't any to display. Some TV's have a single button on the remote to turn captioning on, and it's easy to set the TV for captioning without knowing it.

Black box comes up on tv screen


The black box is a text box for closed captioning. Some stations send the signal which turns on the box while not actually broadcasting any text. Go into your setup menu and turn off closed captioning, or at least change it to a different mode. The easiest option is to restore factory presets.

Large black area in the middle of my screen


After doing some research I found out the the closed captioning or text box was accidentally turned on. You can try to turn off closed captioning and that might work, fortunately it worked for me!

Black square image on screen


meknow is right I think. To turn off your closed captioning hopefully all you need to do is get into the setup menu. You didn't list what kind of TV you have so this is a generic solution. Go into menu and in a setup menu there will be a closed captioning way to select to turn the box off.
The reason sometimes you see it and sometimes you don't is because some programs have closed cationing and some don't.
And because you are only seeing a blank box and not closed captioning is because there are different closed captioning standards. CC1, CC2, etc.
So if you can find the menu item that allows you to turn off the closed captioning, it would be a good start to solving your problem.

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.

Big black box on screen


It has something to do with the closed captioning. He must have hit the closed caption button on your remote. You need to either turn the closed caption off or make another selection under closed captioning like cc1 cc2. Just keep making selections until the box goes away.

Tv PROBLEM


The black box your are seeing on the screen is the box to display text. It is listed under your "cc" closed captioning setting as T1, T2 etc. Go into your closed captioning and shut off the text. You can still leave closed captioning on or off. The text system was never really used but they put it on all of the TV's.
