Black square in middle of tv

Our tv recently starting popping up a black square that covers most of the tv screen. You can hit picture in a picture to make it go away for a few seconds and then it pops right back on the screen again. We can still hear sound and see picture about 6-8" on sides of black square. Help, what is wrong and how can it be fixed.

He, he. Somebody activated the subtitle mode on the remote. Desactivate the CC mode on your menu and it'll go away or at least if you want CC put it in CC1 Text1

I have a vs-60609 60"

Sounds like a Picture in Picture screen popping up, but if you do not have a signal from another tuner, it will be blank.

Try hitting the PIP button on your remote to see if it turns it off and on.
Plus go into the tv menu and find the PIP settings.

I have a mitsubishi vs 5059, when i open the TV I get a black square covering most of the tv but i can hear the sound and also see the picture outside of the black square. I don't know if there is an error...

You can likely buy a replacement remote here:
'Universal' remotes exist only in your dreams; there is no such thing since the manufacturers cannot agree on a basic code set that would work with any set. None of them can control every function of every brand and model made.

Black square

hmmm...the black square syndrome..sounds like the picture in picture settings are unhappy..check those, to see if maybe it's on some sort of timer, and accessing a non channel(which might explain the black square).

Mistubishi WD-52527 52" LCD Projection TV

those are going to be dust spots on the LCD panels internal to the optical engine. i suggest that you take the screen off and take off the panel i nthe middle of the tv with 2 screws in it and there will be an area that has 3 metal fins covering thin orange ribbon cables. the 3 square objects at the end of those ribbon cables will be the LCD panels spray wiht air compressor unitl clean and that should greatly help your problem.
