My TV seem to be on wide screen and it shows half the picture, how do I set it up on full screen? No other material is connected to the TV

If your TV displays a black box type shade on the screen means that your TV may be set to "Text" mode. To clear the screen, select "Caption Off mode".
To do this, press "MENU" button to display menu functions on the screen. Press "channel up or channel down" button to select the function "CAPTION". Press "Volume Up or Volume Down " button to select the mode you wish. There are five modes that you can select; Caption-Off; Caption-C1; Caption-C2; Caption-T1 and Caption-T2. As no other matereial is connected to your TV, you just select "CAPTION-OFF". When done press the Menu button again to exit menu display. Ok.

Sounds like your closed caption may be on and here is how to turn it off..

1. Press the menu button until you get to the "SPECIAL" menu.
2. Make sure that Closed Caption and CC on mute are both set to OFF.

This should make that black box go away...

Good Luck and please rate this solution...

How do i get out of lock on my tv

This set has a front panel MENU button which is good, since most universal remotes don't seem to work the TV menu.

Use the menu button to get to the closed-caption setup and make sure it is turned off. The black square is because the captioning is set for text mode. That part of the screen is being blacked out so the text (which isn't there) can be displayed.

Unwanted rectangular black area appears on screen blocking 40% of picture

This could be the result of a partly shorted vertical winding on the deflection yoak.Since the line is on an angle and not straight across.
