Re: Black Rectangle blocks TV screen

Ok, your only problem is that you have the close caption on. You also have it in text mode. That is why you get that black box. Just go into the menu and turn the close caption off.

best regards

The dark rectangle appears because you have the closed captions on and set to TEXT. Closed captions set to CC1 puts the words on the screen and TEXT puts a black box on the screen. Go into the menu, navigate to the page with closed captions and set your captions to OFF.
