Mysterious black box?

Ive had my daewoo TV for years now with no problems. Today I come home and turn it on...and there is a black box that is taking up half of the screen. When i go to change the channel the box disappears...and then comes back moments later on the new channel as well. I went throught the entire menu...I can't get it to go away....any ideas? Or is this tv just done?

Black box blocks out lower half of television screen


Check your closed-caption settings. If you have captions on and set to "text" mode, this can happen. The TV blanks out the area on the screen where the text should go, but there's nothing to display. Turn off captions or set for regular caption mode, and that should clear up the mysterious box.

Tip

Curing the "black box" on some TV channels


Here's the symptom: A mysterious black box covers some or most of the picture on your TV, but not all the time. It may not show up on all channels, or sometimes it disappears only to come back later.

No, it's not the picture tube, it's your closed-captioning. Somehow your TV has been set to "text mode", and the screen is being cleared for text that isn't there. On channels or shows where captions aren't being broadcast, there's no box. But the box returns when captioning is being sent.

Many TV set remote controls have a single button to set closed-caption modes, so it's easy to set a TV to "text" without knowing it. (Especially when you have kids who love to press buttons!) Then when the box pops up, it's a mystery.

Simply press the captioning button on the remote, or use the set's menu, to cycle through the settings until you turn captions off. No more box!

Black vertical line on screen periodically- but most of the time


hi all .ive had the same problem,a thick black line down screen.sometimes it flickers from top to bottom and other permantly in view.but i have solved it.forget your ic boards and taking apart tv.have you got either a ps3 or wii connected to tv.if so unplug power lead from socket and relocate in seperate socket.make sure the lead is completely free of any other leads and you might just find this works.i think the power lead creates some sort of frequency that the tv picks up .good luck hope it works

Sounds like your closed caption may be on and here is how to turn it off..

1. Press the menu button until you get to the "SPECIAL" menu.
2. Make sure that Closed Caption and CC on mute are both set to OFF.

This should make that black box go away...

Good Luck and please rate this solution...

Square box in middle of t.v. black everywhere else.


Turn off the closed-captioning. If it's set for text mode, the screen will blank out an area for the text to be displayed. On channels or programs where captions aren't being used you won't see any problems, but other times you'll have the mysterious black box. Many TV remotes have a single button to control captions, so it's easy to get into text mode without knowing it.

Screen is black except for thin line in middle of screen


The problem is in the vertical section of the main board. Bad capacitors and maybe the vertical IC. If you are not inclined to be a tech you will have to take it to a shop.. I don't know what they may charge but I normally get $69- $89

Is the tv that I have bought about 6 years ago ready for DTV?


6 year old tv probably not digital ready. The converter box will work if tv is on channel 3 and you use a UHF antenna. Most converter box connections have 75 ohm connectors, your tv may have the round connector to accept the input signal. If you have screw on terminals on the tv you will have to go to Home Depot or Lowes and get a matching transformer to go between the tv and the converter box. UHF antenna can be made out of a coat hanger. Just make a circle clean the paint off ends and attach. Or just buy a digital booster antenna at WalMart.

Lines on screen


Can you take a picture of the screen and post it? It is not possible for both the horizontal and vertical stages to fail at the same time to produce a cross. A picture of the screen would help significantly.
