I don't know why but a black box, almost the size of the screen appears.

How do I get rid of the square black box that suddenly appeared in the middle of my screen. I was trying to adjust the color when suddenly it appeared. I tried turning it off for awhile, but it came back...

I had accidentally hit the text button and turned it on while trying to adjust the color. I turned it off with the remote and the problem went away.

Black rectangle on screen

The box you're seeing is the "closed caption' box. You need to use the remote and disable CC mode on it, and the box will go away :)

Black box

Make sure your closed-captioning is turned off. This box appears when you have captioning set for "text" mode and the set is on a channel where captions are being broadcast. The TV blanks the part of the screen where the text would go, but there isn't any to display. Some TV's have a single button on the remote to turn captioning on, and it's easy to set the TV for captioning without knowing it.

Black box appears in TV screen

The problem with the black box happened to me. I had pushed the subtitle button on my remote by mistake. Interestingly enough, as soon as I pushed the SUBTITLE key again, on the remote, the black boxes disappeared.

It also says CC which means closed captioned-- So the bottom on my remote is Subtitle, and then on the subtitle button is cc...

I hope this helps
