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?

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.

Hitachi Ultrascan HD Black square question?


If that black box is generated by Tv, it should be there all the time, like on cable, av input etc.
as you said its not always, so cable top box is suspected which can generate such box as well.
I would suggest when you see that box in tv reception, simply play dvd player and check is that box still appears on dvd input? I hope black box wont appear in playback of dvd player.
Need further help, please let me know.

Black screen


I have a Sharp Tv that had the same problem with a large brownish or black square right in the middle of the screen. It only left about an inch around the edges that you
could see the picture moving in behind the big black block or square.I have DISH sat-elite and the book recomending that I check and see if the "caption settings" were on
or off. They were on. I turned the caption settings off and the large square diappeared.

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.
