Radio Shack Universal Remote 15-2146 Closed Captioning Issue

Please help me. For the love of god. I can't get the closed captions off my tv. The problem started when I got the remote over a year ago. I am at my absolute breaking point.

    The problem started when I got the remote. I originally had a cable hookup and noticed that I could click the captions off with the 'exit' button on the universal remote on TV setting. However, it is only short term, for the captions come back automatically as soon as something else is said on the television. I could do no such thing with the cable remote, leading me to believe it was an issue with the TV and not cable. I've gone through the settings on the television and can't find any closed caption related options. I also have scanned the manual for the 15-2146 and there is no mention of anything having to do with closed captions also. I tried calling Radio Shack's 1-800 number but that didn't work either. I just really need to get the captions off. It's driving me insane.

I would make sure that you have the correct model code for the universal remote. I've actually had the same problem because I used the wrong model code. If it's correct, start over. disconnect everything, (will reset all options) and that should solve it.
hope i helped.

How do i turn on the caption with universal remote RCr311W to a sanyo tv moel#DS27820 ?


Here is the link to the User's Manual for that universal remote control:


http://www.voxxsupport.com/images/User%20Manuals%20-%20FAQ's/RCR311W_DOC_OM.pdf


Unfortunately there is no dedicated button on that particular universal remote for operating the Closed Captioning feature on your TV.


You can try using the MENU button on that remote in order to access the AUDIO OPTIONS on your TV. Then see if you can activate the CLOSED CAPTIONING from there. See page 5 of the above manual for instructions on how to operate the MENU button on that remote.


Otherwise you will have to use the original factory remote control that came with the TV, or go out and buy a more expensive / advanced universal remote control with all the additional features and buttons that you require.


Good luck.


Joe.

I can't turn the closed captioning off. I have went to device tv tried turning cc off. It won't turn off


If you are able to turn the closed captioning off with the original TV remote, then I suggest doing it that way. If you want that functionality on your Harmony One, you can use the original remote to teach the Harmony the closed captioning command. To learn commands, do the following:
1. Log in to the Harmony software. 2. On the "Devices" tab, click "Learn IR" next to the icon for your TV. 3. At the bottom of the screen where it says "MyNewCommand," enter the name that you want the command to have, and click "Learn." 4. Follow the on-screen instructions to learn the button. 5. Update your remote.

I have a panasonic TV. direct tv remote for a . while programming the timer, somehow closed captioning got turned on & i after hours of trying to get it turned off, NO LUCK. it's driving me insane!!...


I could do better with a picture of the remote. Closed captioning is usually a multi-press button, that is each press takes you through each of the four types of closed captioning and then off.
You can enable closed captioning on a DVD Recorder, it looks like the TV, but its only on the picture from the DVD Recorder.
If you have a PVR, you could have closed captioning on on that device.
Try tuning off everything else to make sure it IS the TV.
Turn on the menu and find the closed captioning settings and set to OFF.
Press the close captioning button on the remote (If there is one) and press CC repeatedly until it says OFF.
Try and control close captioning, timer and menus with the ORIGINAL remote and not a programmable one.
Programmable remotes are not always completely compatible.

Need to know how to put the tv on close caption


Captioned programs are marked in TV listings by "CC". so press the cc button on the remote and the closed caption option will be applied.press that cc button again to turn off the closed caption option.
1) Check the size and manufactured year of your television. If it was made after 1993 and is larger than 13 inches, it has a closed captioning system built into it. Otherwise, you may need to purchase a separate closed caption system, which are available at a number of online outlets.
  1. 2)Turn on your TV and access the menu for closed captioning. The precise location of the menu varies by television set. Most are accessible by pressing the "Audio" or "Set Up" menu on your remote, then scrolling down to the "CC" or "Closed Captioning" option. Check your owner's manual for precise instructions.
  2. 3)Turn the closed captioning option to the "On" position. It will then run closed captions for every program that broadcasts them. Newer sets may allow you to adjust the size, font and colors of the closed captioning letters to fit your individual tastes.
  3. 4)Tune to a particular program for a few minutes to make sure the closed captions are working. Note that while many broadcasts run closed captioning, not all of them do. If the captions don't appear, check your TV listing to ensure the program includes them.
  4. 5)If you're watching a DVd on your TV, access the DVD's "Set Up" menu. It should have captioned options, which allow you to show captions in English and possibly other languages as well.
  5. thanks.
