I doo not have the origanal control for my philips tv... I have a dish universal remote!!! And it does not give me the option for cc off!!! Help me plz its driving me crazy


That is a problem, the original remote is needed for all options, you could go to the nearest TV repair shop to see if they might have good used one for your model. Some tv tech's keep a large box of remotes for that purpose. The only other option is contact the company for a new remote if they are still available.

Why does a black box keep appearing on my screen?


The box is probably because you have closed-captioning turned on and set to "text" mode. Check the TV remote control for a button marked "CC" or "CAPTION" or something similar. Press the button to cycle through captioning options until you get to "OFF". This should clear up the trouble.

What's happening is that in text mode, the TV blanks out the area on the screen where the text should go, but there's nothing to display. Text mode isn't widely used, but in some markets it's used to display weather or other information. What sometimes happens is that the caption button on the remote gets pressed and you don't know the TV is set to text mode until the box starts coming up. And it doesn't happen on every channel, or even all the time on the same channel, so it can seem very random.

Dark shaded square area in center of tv picture - how do I get rid of it? I am at mothers and she has what looks like a 36 inch tabletop JVC tube tv probably about 10 plus years old. not able to remove tv...


I have heard complaints from some of my customers, “There is a black/gray box on my television, but I can still see the picture around the edges”. This happens to all of us and is a common symptom and can be fixed very easily. If you have a black/grey box in the picture, on the older sets they would be perfectly centered on the screen, but, on some of the newer sets the black/grey box can be in different places and can be different sizes on different sets.
Most likely the Text mode is on in the Closed Caption menu.
The way you can test if it is in Closed Caption Text mode, when you change the channels, the black/ gray box will not appear right away but it will take some time to show back up. This is a very good indication that the Closed Caption “Text” mode is turned on for your television. It just needs to be turned off.
To turn off the closed caption go into your menu and turn off closed caption (CC). This will vary from manufacture to manufacture; it should be in the options menu.
I have seen on some sets like Mitsubishi puts it under the Video adjustments button. So you may have to look around for it.
You may even have a CC button on your remote, which will make it much easier. Just press the CC button until the display indicates that CC it is off.
I hope that this tip helps you and that you enjoy your televisions for years to come.

Black box fills most of screen on certain channels


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.

I have a philips magnavox tv with the original remote. closed caption constantly (writing script)comes on tv screen, even though the remote has a cc button,i press it until cc off comes on, the cc goes off...


You're not doing anything wrong. Your TV is somehow turning the cc on "all by itself". Some bit is getting flipped inside the TV, turning the cc on.

either that or there is some sort of rf or ir interference near the TV that is mimicking the CC button on the remote.

Have you pressed the cc button on the remote, verified the cc is "off" on the TV and then removed the batteries from the remote for a while to make sure there isn't something hinky with the remote???

Go into your settings of the TV menu or there will be a single button on the JVC remote marked "CC" for closed caption. Press it or in the menu turn off the "TEXT" mode. With the text mode on you are allowing the TV to display text information wich means usually a black rectangular box that appears on the screen with no text in it. Usually on the cc button just press it until it scrolls through turning off the CC or text modes.

On the remote control is a button called closed caption or CC.. Someone turned on the closed caption. Simply turn off the closed caption. That black box is called the text box. Good Luck

Tv Has Big Black Box


shut off close caption. use the CC button onthe remote or go in to the menu and change close caption to CC1. this box is the close caption in TEXT(1,2) which will put on a black box whenever there is caption present.
