On my TV certain shows (Craig Furgerson, Oprah, The View)on different networks,a black rectangle, about 1/3 of the picture, appears. I cannot remove it.


That box appears to be from the close caption feautre. If you have the original remote you can disable using the menu and go to audio functions and look for close caption to turn it OFF.
Do you have the user's guide for this TV?
If you do not, could you provide the model number of your TV?

A black rectangle showing in the middle of the screen this appeared suddenly


this sounds like screen burn with rear projection and plasma when a picture is left sitting still on the screen sometimes it will burn in to the screen rendering it useless i left my ps3 paused on my old tv then when i changed to bbc one it still had a faint call of duty pause screen in the back it can vary from things like that to logos to your black rectangle the only way of repair is by replacing the screen all toghether i would advise you to just take the screen off and start using the tv as a projector if you cant find a screen it is only a bit of ribbed plastic but very hard part to find

According to Sharp it is a software problem. Engineer came, installed software update ,10 minute job.....TV worked fine for 1/2 day unfortunately: Then images turned black and white in all channels TV turned itself off, and stanby and OPC buttons started flashing. When TV came back on its own 10 mins later , screen had 2 large square staines superimposed in image (as if it was a burnt screen)...Engineer will be back next week...all quite sad really for a new TV.....will keep u posted

Large Black Box Showing up in middle of screen.


When a black box appears on the screen it means that your closed captions are on and set to TEXT. When the closed captions are set to CC1, it puts the words on the screen and when set to TEXT it puts a black box in the center of the screen. Go into the set's menu, navigate to the closed captions page and set the captions to OFF.
