I have an older standard Fisher TV, model no. PC1527. The text displays that state, "NEED SETUP PRESS SETUP KEY". I press it and nothing happens. What am I doing wrong. Please help, I want to remove this and other displays like the mute and sound lettering.
1. Display MAIN MENU. Press ACTION key on remote. 2. Display SET UP TV screen. Use arrow keys to select TV icon and press SET key. 3. Display CAPTION screen. Use arrow keys to select CAPTION and press SET. 4. Select CAPTION MODE. Use arrow keys to select CAPTION MODE. Press SET to cycle through caption settings until it says OFF. 5. Press ACTION key three times to return to normal screen.
You can download the manual from Panasonic here if you need a copy.
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!
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.
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.
