Black box in middle of screen

So while watching tv sometimes for hours or minutes every once in a while a black box appears in the middle of my screen leaving about 2 inches all around that come through fine and nothing will remove it. Is the tv fixable? Am I accidently pressing the wrong button on my remote? Its rather annoying! The brand of my TV is Advent purchased from Meijer in Michigan, not sure if this is brand under another brand. This is a 25 inch flatscreen with a builtin dvd player.

Big black box in the middle of the screen


The black box is there because your closed captioning is on and set to text mode. Some channels send the signal even when there is no actual text to display. You can get rid of it by either turning off closed captioning or changing it to CC1 or CC2 mode instead of text. If you can't find those settings, then restore factory settings as directed in your user manual.
