This is due to a "Text" setting in closed caption.

The TV is a Mitsubishi CS-26201C to the extent it matters and the remote is the original remote. A small child played with the remote and now a black square pops up and covers vitrtually the entire screen...


The child managed to press the button on the remote that controls closed-captioning, and now the TV is set for "text" mode. I don't remember if the button says "caption" or "cc", but it's one of those or something very similar. Press the button again to go through the settings until you get back to "off" and the box will be gone.

What's happening is that in text mode, the TV blacks out the area where the text would go. If there isn't any, the result is that mysterious black square. It may not show up at all on some channels, or only during some programs. It depends on whether captioning is being broadcast. Since many TV remotes have a single button to control caption settings, it's easy to get into this mode without realizing it. But it's easy to fix.

Hope this helps! Thanks for using Fixya.

Tip

Curing the "black box" on some TV channels


Here's the symptom: A mysterious black box covers some or most of the picture on your TV, but not all the time. It may not show up on all channels, or sometimes it disappears only to come back later.

No, it's not the picture tube, it's your closed-captioning. Somehow your TV has been set to "text mode", and the screen is being cleared for text that isn't there. On channels or shows where captions aren't being broadcast, there's no box. But the box returns when captioning is being sent.

Many TV set remote controls have a single button to set closed-caption modes, so it's easy to set a TV to "text" without knowing it. (Especially when you have kids who love to press buttons!) Then when the box pops up, it's a mystery.

Simply press the captioning button on the remote, or use the set's menu, to cycle through the settings until you turn captions off. No more box!

Black square appears on my Legend TV


Check to see if you have text turned on in the closed captioning menu.

Black Box on the screen


It sounds like a text box that isn't receiving any text. If it covers almost the entire screen, then you might have accidentally got the settings into DEMO mode. It could also be a box for closed captioning, but that usually covers just the lower part of the screen. Either way, the solution is to go into the setup menu and restore facotry presets.

Black box appears in TV screen


The problem with the black box happened to me. I had pushed the subtitle button on my remote by mistake. Interestingly enough, as soon as I pushed the SUBTITLE key again, on the remote, the black boxes disappeared.

It also says CC which means closed captioned-- So the bottom on my remote is Subtitle, and then on the subtitle button is cc...

I hope this helps

Black box on screen


On your remote should be a button called TV caption or text. Turn off the closed caption as someone hit it and turned it on by accident. If its not on your remote, then it is in the menu. Good Luck Ps Please dont forget to rate this thread.
