Question about Sharp 25L-S100 25" TV

1 Answer

BLack box in the middle of my screen?

When you turn on the TV, the picture is good for 3-5 seconds. Then a Black box appears and covers the middle of the tv on down. If you change the channel, turn up the volume, go to the menu, etc. it clears up and then black box reappears. Is there a way I can fix this without taking it somewhere? Thanks, Harry

    volume goes silent or goes to maximum when we want it to stay in the middle. also, words appear on screen randomly, like "volume" ... "menu" etc.. i don't use a remote at all. usually when i manually adjust the volume, it does go to my desired volume level. other times the volume can not be changed at all. can't watch anything like this.

    the tv has no sound but a picture and there are 4 number 2's on the screen with a letter code in the middle of the screen- no black box.

Iv'e run into this before, you have closed caption text 1,2,3 or 4 on. this is different than the normal "cc" cation. just go into your menu & turn off closed caption.

Black box in middle of screen

It's a text box for either closed captioning or demonstration mode. Go into the setup menu and turn off closed captioning. If you have trouble doing that, then just restore factory settings.

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.
