Black square in center of screen - no "closed caption" solution
I was researching to find out what may be the problem and all suggestions indicate to reset the "closed caption" to off but all I can find on the menu is "caption on mute" which provides option of "no, CAP1 and CAP2" - what do I do to get rid of the big black square .... in very simple terms!

Please try to unplug the TV from the wall outlet and then rest it for a while pulg it again and test. if still the issues remain then try to see the all the switch menu infront of the TV maybe lock or got errors.
meknow is right I think. To turn off your closed captioning hopefully all you need to do is get into the setup menu. You didn't list what kind of TV you have so this is a generic solution. Go into menu and in a setup menu there will be a closed captioning way to select to turn the box off.
The reason sometimes you see it and sometimes you don't is because some programs have closed cationing and some don't.
And because you are only seeing a blank box and not closed captioning is because there are different closed captioning standards. CC1, CC2, etc.
So if you can find the menu item that allows you to turn off the closed captioning, it would be a good start to solving your problem.
Go into your customer menu to closed caption and turn off the "text" mode... What you're seeing is a text box from closed caption but unless you have that additional service it will just me a black square...
your TV do not disable close caption in composite mode. It may in component mode. Please make sure that the close caption in your TV menu is not set to "text" Please be advice that CC :Text is the ONLY one that can give you a black box.
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.
