A black rectangle the size of the settings window shows up constantly. It goes away briefly if I turn the TV off and on again, change channels or bring up any settings window, but it comes back after a second or two. It doesn't show up in video 1 or video 2 modes.

If it is a large black rectangle that blots out the middle of the screen then you need to check your CC (closed caption) setting. Make sure the closed caption is turned off. I'm not up to date on the newer sets, but a lot of the older ones had more than one CC setting. One setting ran the captioning across the bottom, another put it in a big black box in the center of the screen. Most places didn't support the full text so all that showed was a big black rectangle on the screen. Since I'm not sure exactly what your rectangle looks like, this is my best estimate of your problem. Hope this helps.
go into your menu and find closed caption, someone has accidently set the closed caption mode to text, when the on screen display of channel or volume goes away the box appears. turn off the closed caption feature or switch it to something other than "text" mode, and your box will go away.
the black rectangle appears as soon as the channel indicator goes off. someone has turned on the closed captioning in the menu of the set. it is in the "text" mode. go into the menu and turn off the closed caption feature.
