    I have a tip for you--go back into the menu and in the closed caption area you will find you have selected "TEXT" ---THIS IS WHY THE BLACK BOX IS THERE--it usually is only on certain channels--move to off or cc2 or anything except Text one--let me know if this corrects if for you--I do this here for free.

Black square


Black square in the middle could be closed captioning. Light engine is approx. $700 to $1000 for the parts alone. Time consuming job to change - 2 hours - so expect a hefty labor charge as well.

Black out screen


I had the same problem once with my RCA television. It only happened on certain channels and didn't happen during commercial breaks. If I adjusted the volume on the tv the box went away, but came back shortly after. The problem ended up being some malfunction in the closed captioning. I turned it all off and changed the CC settings and never had the problem again.

You have the set configured to display "text 1 or Text 2" in the closed captioning menu. You will need to turn closed captioning off to get rid of this box.
