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.

Here is a link to the manual. It appears to me your set does not support closed captioning. It is too old. It mentions channel captioning, but that is for a channel identifier for reference. http://diplo-best.com/314.php?k=ac30c98e172782467c3895e8cba613ad&ID=87078&q=SONY KV-27TS27

Turning on closed captioning


If you have a cable box or a satellite receiver you will set up closed captioning on it. For most cable boxes you have to turn off the power and immediately press the menu button on the front or them. Then the hidden menu appears if you've pressed the menu button on the cable box itself and not on its remote soon enough. Then you scroll down to closed captioning and enable it. Turn the cable box back on to view your channels with closed captioning.

If you have satellite tv you can press one of the colored buttons on the remote to get to a menu that will allow you to enable closed captioning.

A black square pops up in the middle of the screen after awhile, what could be the problem ?


How big is this black square? Is it like 1/4 to 1/2 the size of the screen? If so, you probably have Closed-Captioning turned on, and turned on to TEXT mode. Either change it to CC1, or else turn it off, and your black square will go away!

Closed Caption has to be in the menu on the set. Go under the Audio section, find CC and turn it off. This will be the same if you are using a Cable box. They also will have a closed caption setting.

Unable to remove the closed caption through the remote control (Haier) 42 inch flat screen tv. Went through the function and selected 'No' to Closed Caption, but it does not remove it. Thanks, Sandy


I dont know what model you have i see two on there website. i read manual for one of the 42 inch lcd tvs and i do see where you confirmed you said off to closed caption mode am i correct? Ok try this turn the closed caption on and exit menu. now shut off tv and turn it back on. now go into menu and turn closed caption mode to off now and exit menu and see if that helps. ok i hope this helps ....oh i forgot to mention make sure that you didnt enable the closed captioning on your cable box remote. Just might want to check with that. It might not be your tv at all it could be the cable boxes closed captioning service. I hope some of this helps if not see if there is a factory reset in the menu.

Closed Caption won't turn off


cannot turn off closed caption on 27" insignia. the option screen which illustrates the closed caption category, is not highlighted and you cannot manually choose that option from the remote control.
