'Black box' appears on JVC TV screen/blocks picture


I'm using my friend's JVC TV. (I'm sure it's at least six or more years old, about a 24" screen.) She had it set for closed captioning which was driving me crazy - so I managed to get rid of that...BUT now there is a black box in front of the entire picture, with just a little 'border' of underlying picture showing.

The set does have PIP, and sometimes if I push "swap" on the remote, the channel numbers flip from upper corner to lower, but always the big black blocking box return.

I read that there might be an internal problem needing resetting, so I unplugged it overnight...Absolutely no effect.

Anybody have any ideas?

Blackout area on screen

Make sure the TEXT and CAPTION options are turned off.

I am not sure about the Sonny's, but on my Toshiba a black box appears when I inadvertently leave one of the close captioning (CC) on for text or captions on (such as CC1, CC2, etc.).

Color problem

Please fine tune those B/W channels to obtain color picture. If TV is more then 4 - 5 years old, it needs resoldering in tuning area or might need replacement of IF block.
