Open Question

I cannot turn off the closed caption on my Hitachi 50v500

The captioning was on auto, the TV was turned off, when turned back on the closed caption is on and I have been unable to turn it back off. I have reset the settings repeatedly, turned the unit off and back on.

SOURCE: closed caption and black square

your TV do not disable close caption in composite mode. It may in component mode. Please make sure that the close caption in your TV menu is not set to "text"
Please be advice that CC :Text is the ONLY one that can give you a black box.

Best regards

SOURCE: Closed captioning

I experienced the same problem for about an hour before recognizing that the "continuous on" closed captioning had been activated on my cable box, not the TV. The signal feeds through despite the CC settings on the TV. If you haven't already, try checking the CC settings on whatever device is supplying your video.

SOURCE: toshiba 62hx94 cant shut off closed caption have comcast cable

The problem was with the Motorfolla Comcast cable box not my T.V. . I turned off my Comcast cable box, pressed menu on the remote to the cable box. This made a 16:9 ratio appear on the cable box's LED read out, and a bluish screen appear on my television. One of the options on my television was to turn on and off closed captioning. Therfore, I turned off closed captioning and the problem was solved.

SOURCE: I can't turn on closed captioning on Hitachi with Comcast scientific atlanta explorer 2200 cable box. Any words of wisdom?

Both the set and the box used should have the closed caption feature.

If box is in line to rear audio/video jacks you will have to engage the CC from the box.

I doubt it will work if hooked that way from within the box---go to menu and in CC area in either set or box select CC1 which is the most common one used.

Close caption never leaves the screen


Go into your MENU most likely under Audio and look for Closed Caption, it should say on the screen which controls on the remote to navigate with. It might also be under Features you will then be able to turn it off.

Closed caption


Are you talking computer or TV?
Closed caption on a TV is when the volume is muted and it prints the speech in a box on the screen. You have to turn it on in the menu.

Hello ccharewicz, After you apply the cc settings do you turn the tv off and then back on. Also have you tried unpluging it from the outlet, sometimes either of these work, if they don't then please post again and i'll continue to look into the problem.

Did you check your cable box or satellte box set-up? I thought I had the same problem on my Hitachi 46F500 but it ended up being my Comcast box was set-up to display closed captioning on the component video output ONLY. Hope this helps...
