    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,

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?

Black box in front of picture


If it's the box,just press the CCD button on the controller until you see CCD off .(Try this one first since it just started with the box)

If it's the TV,just go into the setup options and turn off the closed caption feature.

Black box in middle of screen


Note that the large black box goes away when pushing buttons on the tv (ex: the black box will disappear to show the volume setting when changing the volume on the tv but it will cover the picture and the menu display of the dtv box).

This is caused by the closed caption setting of the television set NOT the captioning of the converter box. To fix this you must open your television's menu, find the ccd/closed caption option, and turn it off. This is a frustrating problem as when most people are told to shut off the captioning they try to do so at the box.

Normal dtv box captioning will appear as a small text box at the bottom of the screen as you would expect - not as a giant black rectangle that covers most of the screen. If you do want to shut this off too you will find that you can't do it through the usual menu options (the menu will only allow changes to font, color etc.) - there should be a ccd button on the remote that when pushed will scroll through ccd-1, ccd-2,... off.
