THE cc key on your remote control might of been pressed by accident and the close caption was enabled, to correct this all you need to do is press the cc key repeatedly untill the c.c. is turned off, the tv display will go through cc1, cc2, txt1 etc. untill you get to the part that says cc off.

Having a black screen in the middle of the picture only on a certain channel


Go into the customer menu and select closed captions--there will be an option for CC1 etc--box in middle of the screen means somehow TEXT 1 WAS SELECTED--the idea here was they would have books or written material on certain programs like PBS--select once that you find TEXT is highlighted or select OFF or something else other than TEXT.

Very common problem on a lot of sets---it only appears on some channels because not many ever offered it for use.

I get a black box that takes up half the screen and it puts random letters and symbols all over the box. it only happens on certain channels also. only on channel 17 and 7 and sometimes on 65


Look for the CC/Text button on the remote. The TV is in the TEXT mode and is showing garbage that is being sent by the broadcaster, You need to turn the CC/TEXT mode off.

Black boxes on a few TV channels - connected to DIRECTV


Turn off closed-captioning. You'll find it's set for "text" right now, probably from hitting a button on the remote without realizing it. The set is blanking the screen for the text which doesn't show up. (In your case sometimes it does. You're the first person who's ever seen anything that I've responded to!) On channels and programs where captioning isn't being sent the box doesn't show up, so you don't know you have the trouble.

Black box blocks on certain programs


Check your closed-caption settings. You should find it's set for "text" right now. Turn it to "off" (or to "caption 1" if you want the captioning).

In text mode, the TV blanks out a portion of the screen to put up text that never shows up. You only notice on channels or programs where captioned programs are being broadcast. This is a common problem; on many remotes there's a single button to control captions and it's easy to hit it and change settings without realizing 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.
