    I haae the same problem with the black box. This didn't start until I connected my cable (digital) box. I bought the tv a long time age used and I don't have a remote for the tv. How can I fix this without a remote? Thanks

    I've had Direct TV with the same satellite box and TV for years, and in the last few weeks a black box coverting about half the screen in the lower center has shown up only on certain channels.

    I have the same problem and it occurs on Channel 7 and Channel 5 whether or not I am watching with the converter box on or not. I don't think there are any Parental Controls in place. We certainly didn't set any.

    I get this box on two local channels, one PBS, the other a local ABC channel. It's not always there. Right now I'm watching Washington Week in Review, certainly not something a Vchip would black out.

Check to see that you don't have any channel locks or parental parental permission measures deployed. If so remove them, this includes V-Chip, and Parental lock out on the remote, and check your TVs menu items. What channel are being affected by this problem? Give channel number and channel type.

Thank you,

check captions on your menu settings it has caption 1 and 2 if it is not set on caption it could be on text which cause the black box to come on the screen turn off every thing on the caption menu.if that does not work then take you set to a tech to have it reset then it could be your eprom or your video circuit.good luck.
