I have a42PX75U Panasonic TV. Lately when I try to put a DVD or VCR tape I get a large black rectangular box that I can't keep off the screen. Any Suggestions?


ONE: Just unplug the power cord for 20 minutes, then power it back up.

TWO: Then, after the reset in ONE go into the on-screen-display area (or on the remote control for some sets) and disable the closed captioning.

That should clear it up.

There is a large black rectangle in the middle of the screen. It goes away for a second when I press the EXIT button on the remote and for about 4 seconds when I press the RECALL button on the remote. ...


This is a text box. This can be turned off under the closed captioning. There should be a cc button on your remote or the closed captioning features can be accessed from your television's menu. Turn closed captioning completely off to get rid of these text boxes.

Keep in mind that closed captioning can also come from your cable box or satellite receiver as well.

Toshiba 32A42A - Menu options pop up all by themself, and the TV is making its own choices. Can this be fixed or do I call a Preist for an exercism or just get rid of it ?


I had the exact same problem yesterday. It took me 1 hour and 45 minutes to find a solution. Here is the solution: It is not a stuck button or the television being 'posessed' that is resulting in the menu cycling. It is the fact that the television is in the DEMO mode. I was able to read the manual for this television online at the Toshiba website. On page 30 it states 'To stop the DEMO mode press 'recall', ''exit', or 'power'. Unfortunately the 'recall', and 'exit' button are on the original remote which I no longer have. The power button on my model is broken. I use the cable box to 'turn on the television'. In reality, the TV is never off, it is just showing a black screen when the cable box and DVD player is off. I suspect this defect in the power button has occured on other TV's experiencing this problem. I was able to push the broken power button to the inside and side of the television casing exposing a round circle that the power button pushes when the power button is not broken. I pushed this small circle to turn the television off. After about 5 seconds I pushed the button again and the television went on without the annoying menu popping up. Just unplugging the television and plugging the television back in does not work. You need to be able to push the power button, or one of the other 2 buttons on the remote previously mentioned.
Also on page 30 it explains how to activate the DEMO mode. It's not too hard to accidentally do, especially when you have kids pushing buttons haphazardly.
I hope this helps someone outthere in cyberspace! Kevin

Black box in upper left of screen


Thats the PIP (picture in picture), which lets you watch two pictures at once.  Push the PIP remote or go into the settings to turn the box off.

There is a rectangular black box across the screen - it goes away when I use the favorite button and have multi screens showing - it returns when I close out the favorites. Color, sound, picture quality...


in the customer menu--find the closed caption settings---you will most likely find the set has been set to TEXT 1---with the remote select either CC1 or OFF---the black box was for text (books) and was not ever used much---usually someone engages it by accident

Black box in middle of screen


Note that the large black box goes away when pushing buttons on the tv (ex: the black box will disappear to show the volume setting when changing the volume on the tv but it will cover the picture and the menu display of the dtv box).

This is caused by the closed caption setting of the television set NOT the captioning of the converter box. To fix this you must open your television's menu, find the ccd/closed caption option, and turn it off. This is a frustrating problem as when most people are told to shut off the captioning they try to do so at the box.

Normal dtv box captioning will appear as a small text box at the bottom of the screen as you would expect - not as a giant black rectangle that covers most of the screen. If you do want to shut this off too you will find that you can't do it through the usual menu options (the menu will only allow changes to font, color etc.) - there should be a ccd button on the remote that when pushed will scroll through ccd-1, ccd-2,... off.

Black Box on the screen


It sounds like a text box that isn't receiving any text. If it covers almost the entire screen, then you might have accidentally got the settings into DEMO mode. It could also be a box for closed captioning, but that usually covers just the lower part of the screen. Either way, the solution is to go into the setup menu and restore facotry presets.

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

A black box appears on the screen


Hi,
Just happened to see your black box problem associated with your T.V.; Thought I would pass along an idea for you to check into, and let me know if it helped...Check into whether or not it has a onscreen text block mode, if it gets into this mode by accidentally pressing the wrong buttons on the remote and or TV, it could and I have seen, at least with zeniths, a big black box which will cover the whole screen except for a 2 to 4 inch border around the box and outer edge of the screen...if this is the case, find someone familiar with the correct setting for the set associated with this problem, and get it back into the right mode....Hope this helps..T.
