Try it on a different TV and if the problem continues, take it back to the store and tell them its broken or try and find a microsoft repair center

My JVC model AV-20F476 has a black-out box that covers most of the bottom half of the screen.

Go into menu and under CLOSED CAPTIONS look to see if TEXT is engaged---if it is set to text 1 turn it off or to text 2,3,4, etc

Text was a feature never really used but it is there, some cable boxes also have this setting/feature.

Let me know if you have questions.

Black box is taking up bottom half of the Screen

Check your closed-caption settings and make sure it's turned off. You'll probably find it's now set to text mode. The set is blanking out the part of the screen where text would be displayed, but there isn't any.

Black Box overlaid on image

Go into the menu and find "closed captions. Once there, turn off the "text" function. If you don't use closed captions, turn it all off. This will make your box go away. Let me know if I can be of further assistance

Sounds like your "CC" (closed captioning) is turned on and it is set to text mode.Go into the menu and turn the closed captioning "off". The default v-chip unlock code is "0000"

Black box on screen

On your remote should be a button called TV caption or text. Turn off the closed caption as someone hit it and turned it on by accident. If its not on your remote, then it is in the menu. Good Luck Ps Please dont forget to rate this thread.

Black rectangle on t.v. screen

It sounds like you have the Text feature on the closed caption option turned on. your going to most likly need an original remote to turn this feature off as far as i know of. If you do not have an original toshiba remote to turn off the clkosed caption or in some sets you have to go into the menu to turn this feature off, maybe you can borrow one from a friend that has one or you can get one from Good liuck and let us know if you need more assistance
