Black Rectangle on lower half of TV screen.

Hey Y'all.

Do you know what this black rectangle is on my TV screen?

I have actually seen letters appear like a text message, butl just a few words at a time..........no ongoing conversations.

Do you by any chance know how to get rid of it.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Patricia

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.

The dark rectangle appears because you have the closed captions on and set to TEXT. Closed captions set to CC1 puts the words on the screen and TEXT puts a black box on the screen. Go into the menu, navigate to the page with closed captions and set your captions to OFF.

Black boxes on a few TV channels - connected to DIRECTV


Turn off closed-captioning. You'll find it's set for "text" right now, probably from hitting a button on the remote without realizing it. The set is blanking the screen for the text which doesn't show up. (In your case sometimes it does. You're the first person who's ever seen anything that I've responded to!) On channels and programs where captioning isn't being sent the box doesn't show up, so you don't know you have the trouble.

Toshiba 32AF45 Black Rectangle Issue


go into your menu and find closed caption, someone has accidently set the closed caption mode to text, when the on screen display of channel or volume goes away the box appears. turn off the closed caption feature or switch it to something other than "text" mode, and your box will go away.
