Black rectangle blocking view

Ever since I used the DVD player with this tv there has been a black rectangle shape blocking half of my screen.  It disappears after 30 seconds but evey time I change the channel I have to look at this black thing that I can't get rid of.

How u get it off the **** screen When i hook up my xbox its comes on but its on the left part of the screen & the right side stays blue

Good day!!!

Please try to input other device such as DVD player to determine which device (x-box) or (TV) need to set up full view settings..

If you play DVD and the screen is fine so you need to set up the full view of your x-box using remote..

If you play a DVD but the screen is still half..You need to set the full view of you TV using remote..

I you have more queries and clarification just add a comment..

Hope it helps..

Thanks for using fixya..

My dvd player doesn't fill the screen on my Sharp

There are settings on most DVD players as well as TV's that allow you to adjust the type of display you want. Make sure both the DVD and TV are set to the same display type (usually either 16:9 for your type of TV). If that still does not fill the screen you will have to use the Zoom function on either your DVD or TV. This will cut off part of your movie, but should allow you to fill the screen. Most DVD movies will also allow you to choose widescreen or normal viewing from their menu. Again, you will lose a small part of either side of the movie, but at least you will fill your screen.

Visio LCD TV - Partial Picture blacked.

Hello! I have a 32" Vizio LCD...within 30 minutes of the tv being turned on, black lines start running through the bottom half of the screen and eventually blacking out the bottom half of the tv screen. It also doesn't have anything to do with the ratio as I have tried that. HELP!

Black Rectangles on 42" Vizio HDTV LCD

Your DirecTV signal is probably too low. That would produce the small black rectangles (pixilation). Also, try replacing the cable you are using to get the signal from the DirecTV receiver.

I'm guessing its the "CC", closed captioning. You have to turn it off, it's either in your menu or you have a button the remote saying either, Text or CC.

It sounds like the closed caption text mode has been turned on. Use you CC button on the remote and make sure the closed caption mode is in the off position.

Black Rectangle on lower half of TV screen.

Turn off the closed captioning feature. If a channel or program doesn't provide the captioning, all you get is the black box. Just find the menu page for that and change the setup.
