Question about Toshiba MV19J1 Combo

Cannot get closed captioning

I have a Toshiba MV19j1 and I cannot get it the captioning to work. I have spoken to my cable company and of course they feel it has to do with the TV. Any ideas? (that I might not have tried?) Thanks, Chris

Re: Cannot get closed captioning

Do you have a cable box?
does your cable plug into your tv through the composite (composite is the rca looking jack usually yellow in color) or coaxial cable (the one that screws onto the post on the back).

now if its through composite and your useing the cable box. make sure the cable box has it turned on. as the signal cannot be passed through composite cable that your tv needs for closed captioning

theres 2 ways of doing it with this tv

first is
now if its through coaxial cable under your menu settings it says it has cctv section where it has cc1 cc2 cc3 and text1-text3 just select cc1 and your set. its under settings.

second if you have series 2 remote there is a button that says cc right on the remote just push that button and you good to go.

both these methods can only be done if your using coax for your cable.

CC is a function of your cable box in this case. TV's have the feature as well, but Bose is right about not all HDMI devices supporting CC through HDMI, especially converting from component to HDMI before hitting your TV. The solution: call your cable provider for this. Start at the source. The cables you use or the TV won't 'take away' closed caption if it's already there.

Remote control users manual needed

I had this problem just now for the Toshiba DC-SB1 remote control model, and I think the problem might be that you're pressing the wrong button. Try pressing the "skip track" button right below where it says close caption on the remote. It's deceiving because, based on where the words 'closed caption' are, it looks as if the stop button is associated with it, but it's not. That's what I was doing wrong, it may be a different problem for you though.

All I can say is that the black box appears when the closed captions are on and set to TEXT. This is normal. Turning off the closed captions should make the black box go away. If the closed captions are somehow turning themselves back on, there may be an issue with the microprocessor in your TV.

Closed captions

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