This is a common symptom and can be fixed very easily.

Just go into your menu and turn off closed caption.
The way you can test if it is in Closed Caption Text mode is that when you change the channels the black box will not appear right away but it will take some time to show back up.

All that needs to be done is turn off the Closed Caption (CC).
You may even have a CC button on your remote, that will make it much easier.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Black box in middle of screen


It's a text box for either closed captioning or demonstration mode. Go into the setup menu and turn off closed captioning. If you have trouble doing that, then just restore factory settings.
