    Some CCTV recorders have a setting that will cover a portion of the camera image you define so that it will not be shown to anyone.  For example, a security keypad view is obscured.  Or a bedroom window is not shown.

    Check settings.

    Look on your cable box/satellite TV box remote for a button that says "Captions" or "CC" (for closed captioning) or "PIP" (for picture-in-picture). If you find a button, press it to remove the black box from the screen.

    Reset the power on the camera to see if it fixes the error. If not, the camera may need to be replaced.  

  • Part of the ccd in the camera has failed.  You need a new camera.
