My tv has a black square on the screen.


With the original remote go into the customer menu--look for closed captions---I think you will find that TEXT 1 has been selected---it was a feature that allowed for written things like books to be transmitted and never was really used much--it should only appear on certain channels---select either off or something other than TEXT 1---

It most likely got entered by accident--check it out---also if you are using a cable or sat box--most of them have the same option---if it is not selected in the TV sets own mode--you need to go into the menu for the box if you are using one and turn it off--if this is the case check with your cable or sat provider and they can tell you how to correct this if the box is the reason.

Let me know what happens---I am here to help people--

If you have any questions or need more help--just let me know.

Black square in middle of picture


your captioning or "text" is on. usually inside the tv menu. if not its your cable or dish box has captioning on. black box usually means its in text mode instead of CC thus the black box rather than text
