Go into the menu and turn off closed caption. This should fix your problem. Without the model number and brand I,m sorry i can't be more specific.

Black box appears in television screen


That's the captioning box, alright. Check through the options on your menu, or read through your owner's manual to get rid of that. There also should be a captioning key on your remote.

A black box sometimes appears on my tv screen. can you tell me if this is from having the closed caption butten on and why it happens?


Yes, if the closed caption mode is turned on in 'text mode' the set will display a black box even when no closed caption text is available. the normal closed caption mode is cc1. try turning closed caption to cc1 or off. tech7

Turning off Closed Captioning


On the 27" TruFlat the closed caption button is hidden within the DVD buttons. You have to press it multiple times to shut off closed caption. It seems to have multiple sources for closed captions. Press the button until no source appears on the screen. ITS CONTROLED AT THE REMOTE CONTROL - NOT ON THE ON-SCREEN TV MENUS. Good Luck

Vizio 42" LCD - Random appearance of small black rectangles


I would check and see if you have the text option on under your closed captioning. With the new digital transition the signal for text captioning has been getting messed up during broadcast here lately. If it is on i would just shut it off or go to regular closed captioning.

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 square on one channel


Check the closed caption feature in the menu setup. Consult the instruction manual about closed caption, or call the manufacture tech support.

What is probably activated is the closed caption bulletin board feature, and the station you are tuned to has the board up but with nothing on it. They use these to put text messages mainly for programming schedules and notifications.
