Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

My t.v. has a big black box that keeps appearing randomly. It only happens on certain channels with my receiver box and only while watching movies on my play station. However, not if I play games on the PlayStation or watching an HD t.v. channel.

I would check your parental controls on your TV. Make sure they are set to off

''big black box that appears in the middle of the screen on certain channels''


It's your "closed captioning." Just turn that feature off, and you'll be good to go!

Problem when watching box office movies


There are two things that may be going wrong.

Sky box office are transmitted on different Transponders. I'll explain, each transponder has a different number.. each one has 10 channels or so on them.
this would explain why you can watch regular tv channels but have pixelating on box office.

your sky dish may need to be re-aligned or the LNB (bit on the end) may need changing

the other one is if your box is old then the tuners maybe on there way out. hense you losing certain blocks of channels.

At random a black retangular box appears on the screen


Go into the TV's closed-caption settings and turn off captioning. You'll find it's set for "text" mode right now. What's happening is that in text mode, the set blanks out the part of the screen where the text will go but there isn't any. On channels or programs where captions aren't being broadcast you don't see anything. With the captions turned off the box will go away.

Black box comes up on tv screen


The black box is a text box for closed captioning. Some stations send the signal which turns on the box while not actually broadcasting any text. Go into your setup menu and turn off closed captioning, or at least change it to a different mode. The easiest option is to restore factory presets.

Black menu-like box randomly appears, covering the picture


This is a problem with closed-captioning. What you are seeing is a closed captioning box with no captioning in it. Usually this is being accidentally transmitted by the cable company "head end". Just make sure your closed captioning function is completely turned off. if you are seeing it randomly, it may well be coming from your cable company. Is it just on certain channels?

Black box appears on tv screen


Check to see that you don't have any channel locks or parental parental permission measures deployed. If so remove them, this includes V-Chip, and Parental lock out on the remote, and check your TVs menu items. What channel are being affected by this problem? Give channel number and channel type.

Thank you,

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
