Question about Panasonic DVD-S27 DVD Player

1 Answer

Some sort of box across the screen

I am getting a black box coming across the screen whenever I turn on my DVD. The box disappears when I hit any knob on my TV remote and stays away until I do something with teh DVD remote. Then it reappears. The box covers the majority of the screen. On two occasions some words appeared in the box which led me to believe it has something to do with subtitles. the words were part of what was being spoken at th etime. When I go into Setup the box returns and is a bit more persistent.

Is there a solution? this only started happening today (Feb 4, 2008). Up until now the DVD was working famously!

Try to look at your captions on your tv...you probbally have them set on text 1 or 2 which cause the box to pop up also why it goes away when you push a button. Turn all caption functions of your tv off...cc and text this should take care of the problem.

Cannot see the screen Philips DVP5990 DVD player. Setting problem


You may have probably turned on Closed Caption on your TV. Unhook the DVD player to find out if it disappears. If it disappears then Closed Caption is on on your TV. Turn off Closed Caption. If cannot find how, give me the brand and model of your TV.

It is a timing problem with the cable, you will only get it on 1080p. Is your cable particularly long, or are you using an adaptor (2 x Cat5e network cables)? Try a different cable.

Problem solved! Thanks Panasonic Tech Support!!

In case anyone else has this problem, I'll tell you what I found out. This model DVD recorder does not have closed captioning functionality at all. So if this happens to yours, it is not the DVD recorder causing the problem. It is a setting on either your TV, cable box, or whatever else you have hooked up to it.

In my case, my daughter must have accidentally hit the "Text" option on our TV's caption menu. I changed that option back to its original setting, and the mysterious black box is gone.
