Question about Mitsubishi CS-27407 27" TV

1 Answer

Black square in middle of screen about 25in X 25 in

While in cabletv mode, inadverdantly hit an "unknown " key on the cable co provided remote control by Scientific atlantic..Explorer cable box. The remote control from cable co is of no value in removing the black square.The original remote provided by Mitsubishi is unable to remove the caption from the screen, which appears to be the underlying problem causing the screen to reproduce the "black square" about 25x25. Any ideas out there in cyberspace?

If a black square appears on the screen and you can see the picture around the edges, it means that the closed captions are on and set to "TEXT". Go into the TV's menu, navigate to the closed captions page and set the captions to OFF.

With cable input connected to "RF in"on rear of unit make sure vidoe input is set to "Tuner". This will show up on the TV screen. Change channels numerically or using up/down arrow keys on DVR remote. Note there is a slight pause between changing channels.You probably will have to "autoscan" for channel setup/etc. If you say your TV set is old; it probabaly is equiped with coax
connection only/set TV channel to "3" or "4". when yot opt to play vcr/dvd it will override your

Black square in middle of screen

Sounds like your closed caption is on. In the menu or on the remote there should be a setting or button for the CC. It seems to be in the text mode. Either turn it off or change the setting from text.

Black square in middle of tv

He, he. Somebody activated the subtitle mode on the remote. Desactivate the CC mode on your menu and it'll go away or at least if you want CC put it in CC1 Text1
