Question about Toshiba MW27FN1 27 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

1 Answer

Closed captions Hi, recently I bought (for a very good price) very lightly used Toshiba MW27FN1 TV, DVD ,VCR combo unit. We are very pleased with picture and sound, but for some unknown reason I can't turn closed captions ( cc ) on. This TV set is connected to a satellite receiver so signal strength and quality is more then good. Before I've had a very simple Sanyo 25" TV set hooked up to the same receiver and never had a problem with closed captions. TV is connected via RCA cable and signal is on Line 1. When I press closed caption button on my remote control it shows closed captions ch1 or ch2 and text ch1 or ch2, but no captions will be shown on the screen. I know captions should be on "closed captions ch1" , and there is usually a few seconds time delay after cc are turned on. Also I know that not every program or movie has closed captioning available, so I made sure the cc is available on program I tried to turn cc on. I?ve tried different connections via coaxial cable and couple another things but nothing helped. I don't know if its something with cc decoder inside the TV or what. Like I already said my old TV shows cc in same place without any problems. I hope somebody can help. Thanks. peteroctober.

Re: closed captions

Closed Caption may only come on when you have the television muted.

Power cord input looks like its burned need assistant in solving problem

As the problem relates to high voltage power cord, it is to dangerous to advise anything else but to disconnect the power cord from the wall, and have the unit checked by a professional service technician. The cause may be a short circuit in the power supply board, that can only be fixed professionally.

Please do not take any risks with mains voltage.

check either the front or back of television for a small pinhole, that should be the emergency eject hole, place unwound paper clip in hole to eject disk, however, this will probably be re-occuring and dvd player will need to be replaced.

Tv wont stay on push power it goes on and then off

You could possibly have an issue in the vcr portion of the set. If the vcr is not happy the set will totally shut off. These sets are so full of safety circuits that it is really hard to say exactly what it is. These are good sets so you may want to have a shop check it out for you. Thanks for using fixya.
