Black box on top of screen during HDD playback mode
When I tried to watch shows I had recorded on the HDD, all of the sudden I am getting a big black box that covers almost the entire screen. It seems to be some sort of caption box. Once, caption-type words appeared in the box. If I fast forward the show a few seconds, the box disappears. The box is there when I first enter the Direct Navigator screen, and every time I select a show to watch.
Can't find troubleshooting info for captions in my user manual.
In case anyone else has this problem, I'll tell you what I found out. This model DVD recorder does not have closed captioning functionality at all. So if this happens to yours, it is not the DVD recorder causing the problem. It is a setting on either your TV, cable box, or whatever else you have hooked up to it.
In my case, my daughter must have accidentally hit the "Text" option on our TV's caption menu. I changed that option back to its original setting, and the mysterious black box is gone.

The hard drive for the recorder is bad. That's why nothing plays during playback. The DVR can't get the video off the hard drive. You'll need to send the recorder in to be repaired and the hard drive replaced.
Depending on what model number it is? My JVC had a snap shot feature to it as well as video. Make sure that this is not an option for your camera. There could be a possibility that you did record but you have it in this camera setting, it could be taking snapshots of what you recorded.
That's because this is a quad. It compresses all 4 video feeds into 1 file. When you play it back, it decompresses the video and shows you each camera. Playback through this unit is the only way to see 1 camera at a time.
To be able to copy 1 camera shot to a DVD, this is what you need to do:
You need to have a TV with Video in and Video out jacks.
Connect the Quad to the TV Video in jack and connect the TV Video out jack to your DVD Video in jack. Playback a single camera shot on the quad to the TV and hit record on your DVD. - The DVD will record whatever is shown on the TV.
If the player is in VCR mode you will get this problem when loading discs, make sure the light on the front shows dvd. It also happens when trying to record form VHS to DVD in the dubbing menu if you are in DVD mode.
The black box is there because your closed captioning is on and set to text mode. Some channels send the signal even when there is no actual text to display. You can get rid of it by either turning off closed captioning or changing it to CC1 or CC2 mode instead of text. If you can't find those settings, then restore factory settings as directed in your user manual.
first check the iris of the camera if it is
opening,you will see this when you look inside the lens of the camera
when you turn on and off the switch at camera mode if the iris is
opening....if the iris is ok the second problem may occurs of your
camera is the ccd image sensor....go to a sony service center for
replacing that...i know it is free for replacing that sensor cause that
is the recall product not only on sony but in other brand because the
manufacturer of their sensor is only one company....
a sony cleaning cassette may clear the gunk from
your friend ' s possibly ? bad tapes ( do not
rewind it - or the gunk will be redeposited ) ;
if still no video , get an estimate to have your
heads and guides cleaned . . . professionally ;
