TV 'BLOCK' BOX

Why a block box?

While viewing TV, a black square box, blocking out the prog. we're viewing, spontanesouly appears on our TV, we can see the prog. around the sides, top & bottom, we can hear the prog., just unable to view it, (this problem also happened during the time we lived in MD), sometimes there's small letters, or questions along the top edge of the black bx., all of our TV services are legitimate (cable & all cable boxes), so what's the problem?

Resetting parental controls on my RCA projection TV


From the main menu choose "Parental Controls;" it's option six.

Choose the first option, V-Chip TV Rating Limit, and using the arrow keys and the OK button on the remote, scroll through until the TV-MA rating appears. Press the right arrow button to move the highlight over to the "Status" field and toggle to "View." Press the OK button. This will set the age-based ratings to Mature.

From the Parental Controls menu, select the second option, V-Chip Movie Ratings Limit and change the rating to TV_MA and the "Status" to "View."

From the Parental Controls menu select the third option, V-Chip Unrated Program Block and select item one, which will be "View."

Select the fourth option, which is "Channel Block." Highlight the Channel field and using the channel up and down buttons, go through and check they are all set to 'View." Any set to "Block" will need to be toggled back to View.
Lock the controls to activate the changes using item six on the "Parental Controls" menu.

This is the closed captioning, even though it may not contain writing in the block. If you can access the main menu then you can try and turn the CC to off. Otherwise you are stuck with it.

Please rate this answer if it helped.

Large black square blocks screen


Most likely it's the closed captioning has been turned on. From your post I assume you have the remote control and able to access the menus so try to turn off the closed captioning. I'll be notified if you post something new.

Blach block out


if your big black square starts about the middle of the tv & goes down close to the bottom, you have closed caption text turned on. normal closed caption is small, but test caption, is just a big black box with no writing in it. go into your menu & shut it off, it could even be a button on your remote called, "caption", or "cc". good luck.
