Need to turn off words displayed on screen (for deaf or hearing impaired)...

My tv displays the script of programs in white on black type at either the top or bottom, making it difficult to view the entire screen. How do I turn this 'feature' off?

There is a large black box that appears on my screen and makes it so that that I can not watch the TV. It takes up the entire picture and all that I can do is hear whatever my be playing. Once it comes on...


Check your closed-caption settings. You will probably find that you have captioning on and set for "text" mode. Turn it off and the problem should go away.

What's happening is that with text mode on, the set clears an area (the black box) for text to be displayed, but there's no text. On channels or programs where captions aren't being broadcast, you don't have this problem. Most TV remotes have a button for quick access to caption settings, so it's easy to get this turned on without knowing it. Then you're suddenly facing the black box.

Please take a moment to give this solution a fixya rating if it gets your box cleared up, and thanks for asking here!

Black Square


I had the same problem with DVDs. It turrned out that I turned the closed caption on a few days earlier, so I turned the "closed caption" off and the problem went away.

Black box in middle of screen


Note that the large black box goes away when pushing buttons on the tv (ex: the black box will disappear to show the volume setting when changing the volume on the tv but it will cover the picture and the menu display of the dtv box).

This is caused by the closed caption setting of the television set NOT the captioning of the converter box. To fix this you must open your television's menu, find the ccd/closed caption option, and turn it off. This is a frustrating problem as when most people are told to shut off the captioning they try to do so at the box.

Normal dtv box captioning will appear as a small text box at the bottom of the screen as you would expect - not as a giant black rectangle that covers most of the screen. If you do want to shut this off too you will find that you can't do it through the usual menu options (the menu will only allow changes to font, color etc.) - there should be a ccd button on the remote that when pushed will scroll through ccd-1, ccd-2,... off.

You should check to see if the sound is really coming from the TV- you may have the sound from the directTV cable box composite audio red and white RCA connectors.

Try connecting from the audio out of the TV to the stereo

Try the menu and see if you can adjust vertical and horizontal hold.

unplug tv for 10 minutes - tehn try again.

change battery in remote, if the remote does not seem to work

good luck

Black area on screen,


Hi omsoc,

This could possibly be an issue with closed captioning. While some closed captioning is a marquee-type text near an edge of the display, your television may have an option turned on to display a different channel of captioning that would likely display a large black box on your screen if there is no data to display. This would explain why this would take place suddenly at the same time each night, as well as why pressing the display button would cause it to disappear. I suggest you look into your menu to try turning this option off, then watch the channel you normally watch at this time. If this does not resolve the situation, I recommend you contact your manufacturer’s product support line.

Thank you,
Jason,
