This is known as "burn in" it often happens with Toshiba televisions. The main reason is because of a cheaper screen they use, the color causes it to have a reaction over time, which in turn leaves the black box in the center.

    Your wrong. I went on line and found my solution. We had to go into video and get rid of the text box. And you want to charge me for a wrong solution.

I have a black block in the middle of my screen


That is the caption causing the black box, get the remote press menu and scroll down until you hit caption, use the right arrow and press it until you see off "1,2,3, and off," when the cursor is over the off press enter. That should restore your picture.

Have LG 42 inch plasma, 1 inch black line down center of screen, picture good other than black line blocking center of screen, comes and goes sometimes


Sounds like the middle scalar board is defective. Since the issue comes and goes it could just be a loose connection to the between the scalar board and the PDP Module (plasma panel).

Great caution needs to be taken when checking this connection because it is a ribbon cable connection it and needs to be put in correctly aligned or it could cause a short in one of the circuit boards.

The black block


Possibly one of two things:

Turn off Closed Captions - should be in options menu or on remote.

Or

Make sure PIP (Picture in Picture) is turned off.

Hope this helps.

Black out screen


I had the same problem once with my RCA television. It only happened on certain channels and didn't happen during commercial breaks. If I adjusted the volume on the tv the box went away, but came back shortly after. The problem ended up being some malfunction in the closed captioning. I turned it all off and changed the CC settings and never had the problem again.
