Re: Black Box

It sounds like the "Text" mode of closed captioning has been turned on. If you look towards the top-right of your remote you should see the "CC" button. Push that and set the option to "Off"

Go into the menu and turn off closed caption. This should fix your problem. Without the model number and brand I,m sorry i can't be more specific.

Black box appears on tv screen then disappears. sometimes the box has letters in it. it last for a few seconds then it goes away

That sounds like a text box. Press the cc button and keep pressing it. You will see different closed captions options on your screen each time you press the button. Finally when it says cc off stop pressing the button and you should no longer get the black box. If you have a cable box connected you may also have to disable the captioning on it.

Black box comes up on tv screen

The black box is a text box for closed captioning. Some stations send the signal which turns on the box while not actually broadcasting any text. Go into your setup menu and turn off closed captioning, or at least change it to a different mode. The easiest option is to restore factory presets.

Vizio 42" LCD - Random appearance of small black rectangles

I would check and see if you have the text option on under your closed captioning. With the new digital transition the signal for text captioning has been getting messed up during broadcast here lately. If it is on i would just shut it off or go to regular closed captioning.

Black menu-like box randomly appears, covering the picture

This is a problem with closed-captioning. What you are seeing is a closed captioning box with no captioning in it. Usually this is being accidentally transmitted by the cable company "head end". Just make sure your closed captioning function is completely turned off. if you are seeing it randomly, it may well be coming from your cable company. Is it just on certain channels?
