MINTEK TV - Black screen in the center of the picture


This is the closed captioning text box. Search the menus to turn off closed captioning. The reason for its seemingly random appearance is that not all channels nor all programs provide this service.

Hello my picture seems to have shifted upwards ie the top of the image is now at the bottom of the screen then there is a black line then the next two thirds are above the black line. I think on an old tv...


The problem was not actually the tv the fault was on the satellite box. I unplugged the box from the mains to reset it and the picture was restored to normal.

Panasonic SC-PT460 - Little black box covers half of screen


Can you describe the 'box'? Is it the top half, bottom half, a little of either? What kind of TV do you have?

I suspect you might be noticing the aspect ratio of the various source programs being presented differently on a wide screen than you are used to. DVD programs come in a variety of aspect ratios. Normal TV is 4x3, that is, 4 units wide versus 3 units tall. Wide screens are more like 16x9, so a 4x3 image presented properly on a wide sceen would have black vertical bars on both sides. That is normal.

Some people are offended by the black bars and TV's are unfortunately designed to allow gross modification of the image to fill the space. That is akin to taking a photo of yourself and stretching it to fit an improper frame. That probably wouldn't be very flattering to you and certainly wouldn't be accurate. Which is more important - the picture or the frame?

Black box


This is probably TEXT1 or TEXT2 data, which is an extension of Closed Captioning. Try cycling through the CC settings using your remote to turn it off.

How to get rid of a black screen on my tv. sound is ok


If you mean that you get a black box, with a little of the picture visible around the edges, then your closed captions are on and set to TEXT. This puts a black box on the screen about 10 seconds after changing the channel. Go into the menu and turn off the closed captions and the picture will be back to normal.

i had the same problem with my rca truflat.. i read from a posting of a similar problem with a different tv brand to switch your closed caption options 'off' or set it to a 'cc' option instead of the 't' options.. (this was done through the on-screen menu..) i gave it a try and it worked for my tv.. hope it works for you..
