I guess you did:
lilypond bigblackbar.ly
tex bigblackbar.tex

Plain TeX uses these black bars to indicate output lines that are
too long. The problem is that you ask Lilypond to produce a single
line, even though it will be too long compared to the line width
of the document.

If you just want to get rid of the black bar, run
latex bigblackbar.tex instead of tex or (preferably) use
ly2dvi biblackbar.ly

However, you should get rid of the underlying problem, namely
that the line is too long. If you don't want a smaller font,
try to at least set the necessary line width for the full
  \paper{linewidth=19.0\cm} % Or whatever is necessary
this information will be transfered to the LaTeX wrapper document
if you use ly2dvi. Alternatively let Lilypond break the music into
several lines.

If you want PNG output for inclusion on a WWW page, I recommend
to use lilypond-book, which automates the task of mixing HTML
(or LaTeX or TeXinfo) with musical examples.
