A medium sized black box in the middle of the screen indicates the text feature is engaged.

Explanation:

For several years in the settings on many sets with closed captioning there was a option for "TEXT" and the idea was books and other written things could be transmitted on certain channels.

This never really got off the ground but millions of sets have this feature.

The TEXT box can come from one of two places:

In the set's customer menu look for CC (closed caption) and make sure TEXT IS NOT HIGHLIGHTED.

If you are using a cable or satellite box etc it can also come from that.


If you find it selected for TEXT 1 (there are 1-4 in most sets) either turn it to off or select something other than TEXT 1 and the box should go away. It could also be coming from an external source of something else connected to the set but this is not likely.

Check first CC with the set's remote to see what is turned on or off and LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU FIND.

How can I obtain a picture that covers the full screen width?


There are settings accessed through the TV remote that should allow you to adjust the screen size. Sometimes movie rentals are shown at widescreen (black at top and bottom of screen) due to how the actual movie was made to be viewed by the viewing audience.

How to insert video in the PowerPoint 2003?


Insert a movie and play it automatically
In PowerPoint 2003, you can run your movies full screen. This is a very excellent feature.
  • On the Insert menu, point to Movies and Sounds, and then click Movie from File.
  • Click the video you want to use and then click OK.
  • Tips: Always put the movie in the same folder as your PowerPoint presentation. If you later move the PowerPoint presentation to another computer, copy the movie too. Keeping your movie in the same folder as your presentation ensures the link will still work. However, you should always test the movie on a new machine just to be certain. Re-insert the movie, if necessary.
  • After you click OK, you' are promoted with a message asking how you want the movie to start in the slide show.

  • 44fc8c6.gif

    I recommend choosing Automatically even if you want the movie to play when clicked- I will talk about how to set this part too. (If you choose when clicked you have to click the black box to start the movie. Because I don't like to show the black box on the slide, I do this a little differently.)

  • You should now have a small rectangle sitting on your slide.
    d62d46e.gif

  • Insert a movie using a file on your computer or in another location, such as a server.
  • The movie appears as a still frame on your slide.
  • The trick I use is to move that rectangle off the slide, so it is sitting next to it, but not on it. You can size it down if you like. Click the movie (that is, the rectangle) and then drag it off the slide.

    Play the movie full screen
  • Right-click the movie object (the small rectangle) and on the shortcut menu, click Edit Movie Object.
  • The Movie Options dialog box appears. Under Display Options, select the Zoom to full screen check box, and then click OK.
    4ceb182.gif
  • If you want your movie to play automatically when you advance to this slide, you can stop here.
Test this now to see how it workd by starting the slide show. (On the Slide Show menu, click View Show.) Advance to the slide with the movie, (best if you have the title of the movie on it). Within a couple of seconds, the movie starts to play full screen. When the movie finishes, you return to the same slide (but no unsightly box appears). Click to advance to your next slide.

Add an On Click effect to start the movie
If you prefer, you can click to start the movie. This requires one more step, setting an On Click animation effect.
1. On the Slide Show menu, click Custom Animation. The Custom Animation task pane appears on the right side of the PowerPoint window.

2. Click the movie object (the rectangle) to select it.

3. In the Custom Animation task pane, click Add Effect, point to Entrance and then click Appear.
74b0140.gif
You have added an On Click effect. The animation effect you added is the one with the Green star next to it and a gray rectangle around it. If it doesn't have a gray rectangle, click it to select it. Your Custom Animation task pane should look like the picture below (except with the name of your movie in the list).

4. The last step is to move that animation up to the top of the effects list.
To do this, make sure the animation effect is selected, and then click the Up Re-order arrow at the bottom of the Custom Animation task pane. Or simply click and drag the animation effect to the top of the effects list.

5. Your effects list should now look like this:

6. You are done. Test this to make sure it works by starting the slide show.
(On the Slide Show menu, click View Show.) When you advance to the slide with the movie, you should not see the movie. When you click the slide, the movie zooms to full screen and plays. When it finishes playing, you are returned to the same slide. Click to advance to the next slide.

i'm not familiar with this brand but try to access" setup menu" from your remote control.

1) from your remote control , locate button indicating "setup" and press it
2) viewing your screen there should be a dialogue box or this display board indicating 'Audio setup" Video setup" etc....
3)scroll arrow key (up/down key)and go to "video"
4)in "video setup there should be a dialogue box or drop box asking you to select either " Auto" " PAL" or "NTSC"
5) choose auto and see if anything change in your screen.

Letter box picture when viewing blue ray discs on Sony BR player


All blu-ray movies are in Widescreen format. So your tv converts the picture to make it look like letterbox. There will be some movies that will have those little black bars at the bottom. There will be some movies that don't. There is nothing to worry about it is normall. 

Hope this helps

DVD WS does not display right on Samsung 40'' HD 1080P LCD TV


Check the aspect ratio of your widescreen DVD. I'll assume that your flat panel TV is widescreen, which would mean it has a ratio of 16:9. Some movies are even wider than that (i.e. 2.35:1), so it would be normal for you to see black bars at the top and bottom. Look for a WS DVD described as 16:9 (usually shown on bottom on back). This should fill your TV screen and not distort the image. If you still see the black bars, you will need to check your DVD menu settings for widescreen aspect, and supply more info on the DVD player and TV.
