Question about Projection Televisions

5 Answers

I have a TV with a DVD player combo, #NS-13CTV. On my local channels I get a black box right in the middle of the screen. On the other cable channels it does not appear. I can't get it off. This annoys me greatly. What can I do? You can email me at roseydeb@msn.com with any help you can give me. I am sending you this at work so please respond to my personal email. Thank you for your time in this matter. Debbie Hagosky roseydeb@msn.com

Sorry - unable to reply via email, only on forum, and solution must be rated to be closed.
Is this a problem on other "lower" (1-49) channels? You dont include if your using a cable converter box but assuming not its likely due to your TV settings being incorrectly set. The antenna settings are probably set to "AIR" and not "Cable". If using converter it is probably a problem with your converter. Either way if you cant find an issue call the Cable provider and they should be able to come out and look at it. They should be able to diagnose if its Cable or TV easily (and for free).

It almost sounds like the Closed Caption setting is turned on.
If you have your Closed caption turned on and the station is not sending a C.C. signal, you will get a Square black box.
See if there is a Closed Caption or Text option on the remote control and see if you can turn it to OFF.

Hope this helps.
Good luck.

Hi,

Initially, I would suspect PIP (Picture in Picture) but that normally is only available in bigger screen sizes. It is also possible for other (OSD) On Screen Display messages or notifications.

Can you please confirm if it is an Insignia brand?

Please post back.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    I will assume that it is an Insignia.

    A few things you can try:
    set C. Caption to OFF;
    set Background to OFF;
    set Parental Lock to OFF;
    set TV Rating to NR (not rated).

Projection TV. DVD works. Cable often seems, "untuned". Static & un-fine-tuned sound of channel with black screen. Then, later, it will come on just fine. Sometimes, will go back to untuned status.


I would suspect your cable box first. I would unplug the power cable from your cable box and wait 60 seconds. Plug it back in and try to watch cable tv. I would also make sure the coaxial cable going from the wall to your cable box is connected properly. I would also make sure the cable going from the cable box to the tv is connected properly. Test your tv and see if it works correctly when you watch cable. If this fixes the issue you are good to go.
  • If this makes no difference use a set of new cables if you have them.
  • If this does not work then call your cable company. They may have to replace your cable box.

Mitsubishi VS-60805 Rear Projection won't operate in HD mode with Cable Box


Since this is an older first generation (1999) HD TV it may not be compatible with newer HDTV receivers because the standards back then were different - Make sure the HD cable box is plugged into the HD component inputs on the back of the TV (not the DVD inputs) and that the menu setting on the TV is set to DTV (not RGB) video. This TV will only accept 480i and 480p signals on the DVD input. Also the HDTV input will only accept 480i,480p and 1080i (it will not work with a 720p signal,make sure your cable box is not set to that mode)

Can't get rid of black box


You have your TV in the "Teletext" mode. Go into the TV menu and select the closed-captioning menu and turn off the text function. What you are seeing is the result of the TV's captioning circuit latching onto a false text pilot signal and then throwing up the black box on the screen.

Bought a proscanlcd hdtv 32lb30Q unable to get cable signal


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls confirm if below is how it is wired using a coaxial cable and not 3cable RCA to RCA:
  • Charter Digital Cable > DVD/VCR > TV
If yes and your concern is snowy or no signal on the TV screen, might it be that you have to power OFF the DVD/VCR when selecting channels on the TV itself (including when channel setup is being done).

Alternately, you can tune the TV to channel 3 and let the DVD/VCR do the channel selections.

Pls post back results. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Can't get second picture in Picture-in-Picture (PiP)


Watching two separate tv channels at the same time requires two tv channel sources,i.e. a split of some kind. For instance,the cable coming in thru the wall is split-half to tv or vcr/dvd combo and then to tv,the other half to cable box,then out to tv.If what I described fails,then you may have an actual tv failure.PIP video is generally a separate circuit from standard video.An expert tech w/service literature should be able to help. Let me know if you need more assistance.

Large Black Box Showing up in middle of screen.


When a black box appears on the screen it means that your closed captions are on and set to TEXT. When the closed captions are set to CC1, it puts the words on the screen and when set to TEXT it puts a black box in the center of the screen. Go into the set's menu, navigate to the closed captions page and set the captions to OFF.
