    The black box only appears when i turn on the x box and yes i can see things going on behind it, everything else is fine except for the black rectangle. The cable that it is connected with is just a regular red, yellow, and white one that came with the x box.

This is very strange, so when watching TV or anything else on this Television (watching a DVD for example) there is no black rectangular box? Only when you turn on the Xbox 360? And there is nothing in the box, it is just a blank black box? And you can see things moving and happening behind the box, but the box does not appear to move?

What type of cable are you using to connect your Xbox 360 to your TV with? If you are unsure just tell me what the cable looks like, what color the connectors are if there are more than one, and if not then if it is just one connector total from the xbox to the TV...

Let me know some more information here and we will get this figured out. Just reply to my answer here and we will keep going.

Thanks
Tim

    I see, and nothing at all is in the box on the screen, just a rectangle on the screen, no message or anything? And it's definitely not there when you watch TV on this same television, or when you watch a DVD?


    Thanks

I have a42PX75U Panasonic TV. Lately when I try to put a DVD or VCR tape I get a large black rectangular box that I can't keep off the screen. Any Suggestions?


ONE: Just unplug the power cord for 20 minutes, then power it back up.

TWO: Then, after the reset in ONE go into the on-screen-display area (or on the remote control for some sets) and disable the closed captioning.

That should clear it up.

Black box on screen


Look for bad stk's on convergence module. This may take care of pincushion too.

Intermittantly there is a black rectangular box that appears on the screen for a few seconds then goes away. Our set is 4 years old. Kris 317-201-6643


Turn off close caption in tv, need to go to menu to turn off close caption function, that will solve your black rectangular box problem.

Unwanted rectangular black area appears on screen blocking 40% of picture


This could be the result of a partly shorted vertical winding on the deflection yoak.Since the line is on an angle and not straight across.
