What we need to do first in a case like this is to first take one of the smaller sets in the house, that have closed caption on it, disconnect the cable from the Mitsubishi TV and reconnect it to the smaller TV set and see and make sure the cable line and or splitter to that line is good. If it still does not work on that line with the differant TV set, Then you know for sure that the cable is at fault or the cable equipment, as I have seen a problem like this a while back. If it does work on the smaller set then we know that the set does have a problem processing the cloised caption circuit and needs a servicer to repair it. You see these sets haqve no user replacable parts inside them because all parts are soldered into place and we need a schematic to trace out the closed caption curcuit. if you think you can handle a problem like this order the schematic online and upload it here and I will be more them happy to assist you to troubleshoot this beast. Good Luck PS Please do not forget to rate this thread.

How do i turn off the closed caption on my toshiba 51h84 tv? i tried setting via the remote and changed the CC option to OFF but i still see the closed caption is driving me crazy!! help!

What is the source of your TV signal: Cable? Dish Networks? DirectTV? Antenna?
Many times the Cable/Dish Networks/DirectTV controller also has an option for closed captioning. Please verify that a controller is not setup to deliver the CC data.
Also, try setting the TV CC using 'C1' or 'T1' and selecting 'Enter' to accept the change; then come back and set CC to 'Off' again to see if toggling on/off helps.

We have tried several times over thelast few months BUT can NOT get the close caption to work....HELP!!!

There is a button on the remote control of your TV marked {CC}. This button is used to select the closed caption option to On and OFF. Presing it repetedly will change the options as described below.

CC/Stop - This button will select the Closed Caption menu

in the TV mode. Options include the following: OFF, CC1,

CC2, CC3, CC4, TT1, TT2, TT3 or TT4. Additionally, this

button stops the CD, DVD or VCR when the component is
activated with the remote control. If it doesn't work, means that button on your remote control is not working, and the remote control should be replaced. OK.

JVC TV has a black box on TV after watching a DVD. Tv picture is available around black box and have sound. But I can't see the TV shows with this giant black box in the middle. It happened after viewing a...

That black box is the closed caption display. There is a button on your TV remote marked cc, ccd, or closed caption display. When you press this button, you should see something pop-up on the TV screen. With most TVs every time you press the button the TV will cycle to the next cc option. There are several cc options available. One of the options should be "Off". Keep pressing the button until you see off and then stop. This should correct your problem.

Cannot turn off Closed Caption

Here's the copy on CC from my manual LC-32SB23U.

1. Press CC.
This will present the Closed Caption information display.
2. Press CC while the Closed Caption information is
still on the screen.
Press repeatedly until you select the desired closed
caption service.

Audio : MONO
CC : 1/2 CC1 ------ Closed Caption information
Ratings : NONE

If a program has three services (Digital CC(ENG), CC1
and Text1), the closed caption display will toggle in this
1/3 ENG -- 2/3 CC1 --- 3/3 Text1 -- Off
The CC button keeps a record of the last service
selected in its memory.
If the last closed caption mode (e.g. 1/3ENG) you
selected is not available for the next program, or on
another channel, the closed caption service that is
available is automatically selected, and this service
appears in parentheses, e.g. “1/3(CC1)”.
Closed Caption services that appear in parentheses will
not be stored in the CC button's memory as your last
selected service. Only services that you have selected
with the CC button are stored.

If this doesn't work, the TV may need a software upgrade.
I can get you a copy of my manual LC-32SB23U for you. But, are you sure there is and "A" in the middle of your model number?

Get closed captions on some channels, but not all, even though it is CC

RCA have choices for different methods of CC in user CC menu. Labelled T1, T2, etc. . Different selections are for different types of close caption. Tune to a signal (on your other TV) that has closed caption working.

Tune your RCA to the same signal. Change the T1,T2, etc settings until the closed caption for your signal appears.

If this doesn't work, try connecting analog video or VHF channel 3 (or other specified channel) to the TV. check CC. When TV stations, sat channels, sat receivers, cable boxes etc, convert analog video signals to HD, problems can result. Some equipment causes RCA TVs to do unexpected things with sound and closed caption.

If you use RF or video output, old analog video may look better on CH3 or video than on HD input and the CC will work more consistently. Watch HD signals on HD input, Analog signals on Video in or through the TV tuner . Many HD channels and programs are converted analog video and look poor on TV HD inputs.

Closed Captioning on HD channels

We had the exact same problem just yesterday when we bought our Sony 46" Bravia LCD. Nobody, neither Comcast Cable or Sony seemed to really know how to get rid of the closed caption at first and we did have a Motorola box - the box is the problem, not the tv. Here is step-by-step instructions that worked for us. 1. While TV is on, power DCT (Digital Cable Terminal) off 2. Press and hold "menu" button on digital terminal (the screen below will appear) 3. Using Up/Down cursors, highlight "Close Caption" 4. Using Left/Right cursors, put - Close Caption: Disabled 5. Press "ok-select" 6. When done, press "power" to exit menu 7. Press "power" again to turn DCT on If you go through these steps slowly, you should have a caption-free screen!
