Go to the closed caption menue and turn off "text"... That's a text box and in most areas there is no feed so the black box is all you'll get...

Black box in middle of screen/picture

Closed Caption function to that channel you select is ON. Make it OFF, when you are in that channel which displays this black box. It will be best to reset the TV to its factory settings first, and then re-tune it. for more details, refer its user manual.

Black box fills most of screen on certain channels

THE cc key on your remote control might of been pressed by accident and the close caption was enabled, to correct this all you need to do is press the cc key repeatedly untill the c.c. is turned off, the tv display will go through cc1, cc2, txt1 etc. untill you get to the part that says cc off.

Having a black screen in the middle of the picture only on a certain channel

Go into the customer menu and select closed captions--there will be an option for CC1 etc--box in middle of the screen means somehow TEXT 1 WAS SELECTED--the idea here was they would have books or written material on certain programs like PBS--select once that you find TEXT is highlighted or select OFF or something else other than TEXT.

Very common problem on a lot of sets---it only appears on some channels because not many ever offered it for use.

It's your "closed captioning." Just turn that feature off, and you'll be good to go!
