Question about Proton Televison & Video
36" 15 year old Proton tv. Rectangular box disappears when channel is changed, but returns 2 seconds after change is made, and stays until channel is changed again.
This is simple: set in the closed caption menu (some cable boxes also have it) called TEXT. Look in the menu and turn it off first in the set and also in the box used if used for signal.
Odd feature and never really took off--designed so some channels like PBS etc could broadcast text.

On your remote should be a button called TV caption or text. Turn off the closed caption as someone hit it and turned it on by accident. If its not on your remote, then it is in the menu. Good Luck Ps Please dont forget to rate this thread.

Check the set up. You may have closed captioning turned on which will show up as a black box if there is no closed captioning information for the selected channel. If that fails to resolve the problem, update this.
