Black box in the middle of my mitsubishi tv

My mitsubishi tv has a black box right in the middle of it. Whenever I try to adjust it, like do picture in picture or go to them menu to adjust the settings, the black box in the middle disappears, but as soon as I exit out of the main menu, the box reappears again. How can I get that box off the screen so I can see the screen clearly?

    I wish I would have read this post before I called the repair man. I did a google search for "gray box" and this page didn't come up. The repair man fixed it in 5 seconds -- got it out of text mode -- and $79 later, we're good to go. Oh well...

    im having the same problem with the black box, but with my tv, it only comes on when im trying to watch a dvd. the black box came on with the tv as well but i turned off the caption and it stopped, but not in dvd mode.

    it's not the dvd player because thats brand new, and its not the dvd itself because that worked fine on another tv...

    what do i do now?

This is a common problem, some how you have the closed caption on and turned to the text mode. So to fix this scoll through the tv's menu and find the closed caption and tur it back off

Black box in middle of screen/picture


Closed Caption function to that channel you select is ON. Make it OFF, when you are in that channel which displays this black box. It will be best to reset the TV to its factory settings first, and then re-tune it. for more details, refer its user manual.

Green tint I can't seem to fix


Hopefully someone on here has a manual and can tell you exactly where the tint controls are. Also need to try adjusting the color level, turn it clear down so you have a black and white picture.
Is the picture still green over the screen with the color control
set clear down to black and white? If it does, you might
have an issue with the green gun going out or problem in the
circuitry to it.


By the way, the best way to adjust the picture settings on a
tv are to first turn the color control clear down, then adjust
brightness and contrast for best black and white picture, then
bring up the color level to where it should be and adjust the
tint for best red/green ratio.

Black square in middle of screen about 25in X 25 in


If a black square appears on the screen and you can see the picture around the edges, it means that the closed captions are on and set to "TEXT". Go into the TV's menu, navigate to the closed captions page and set the captions to OFF.
