    Did you ever work out a solution to this issue ? We have the same problem. We can't get to the cc from the set up menu because the TV keeps scrolling through the menu.

If when going into menu, the menu just keeps scrolling automatically then there is a circuit board fault within one of the electronic components. The only solution is to request a Samsung service technician. Cost of repair for us was $392.00. The technician said that this was a common fault with this televison !!!

My t.v. started doing this EXACT thing this afternoon. The "Not Available in Current Mode" message will not go off. When I go into the menu, it scrolls automatically very fast. I am not able to click anything. I wonder what is going on.

This is most commonly caused by the use of a Closed Caption text box. This type of Closed Caption is not always supported by the broadcaster, and results in the appearance of a black rectangle with scrambled or no text.

This can be quickly resolved by adjusting the Closed Caption type to "CC1" or by disabling the Closed Caption feature on your television.

get in the menu and change the close caption with the Olevia remote control

This should fix you right up

This sounds like one of closed caption features, there will be a CC button or menu option to adjust Closed
Captioning - you will need to select the "off" choice and it should remove the box. Once my TV had a similar problem...activated by my cat stepping on the remote.

Black box when tv is on and going through channels


This worked on my tv...give it a try:

go into your menu and find closed caption, someone has accidently set the closed caption mode to text, when the on screen display of channel or volume goes away the box appears. turn off the closed caption feature or switch it to something other than "text" mode, and your box will go away.

Closed caption and black square


your TV do not disable close caption in composite mode. It may in component mode. Please make sure that the close caption in your TV menu is not set to "text"
Please be advice that CC :Text is the ONLY one that can give you a black box.

Best regards
