I can't shutoff closed caption. Tried using menu on the tv and the remote

Both a cable box and and a DVD work the same. The CC is included with the picture sent to the TV. The only time the TV controls and activates CC is when you are using an antenna. If the CC is not turning off then it is likely that you are connected to a cable service and the settings in the cable box need to be changed.

If you have a cable service remote then there is likely a button dedicated to closed captions. If not you will need to go into menu settings of the cable box and deactivate the closed captions. (cc)
Even though the DVD is integrated into the TV the settings for the DVD are separate. If while playing a DVD CC are on it is not the TV settings but the DVD so as the cable box the same is true.. You will need to go into menu settings of the DVD player and deactivate.

Hope this helps?

What you need is a device called a multi-switch. Here's a page which details some of the switches available with different satellite setups. You would hook up your sat recievers, your TV and your recorder up to the multiswitch:

My 32inch lcd tv keeps flickering it started all the sudden


    • 1 Turn the TV off with the front-mounted power button, not the remote. Unplug the TV's power cord from the wall outlet. Let an hour pass before plugging the cord back into the wall outlet. Turn the TV back on with the front-mounted power button and wait until it has fully restarted. Bring up a TV channel to see if the image being presented on the LCD screen is no longer flickering. A momentary power surge can cause the circuitry inside the LG-brand LCD TV to function erratically.
    • 2 Unplug the video cable from the video connection on the back or side panel of the LG TV. If more than one video cable is connected to the TV, disconnect all of them. Disconnect the other end of the video cable from the video source device that it's attached to -- a DVD or Blu-ray player, or a satellite receiver or cable box. Blow off the connections on the video source device and on the back or side panel of the TV with bursts of compressed air. Reinsert one end of the video cable into the video source device and the other end into the video input that it was connected to. Turn the TV back on with is remote to see if the picture is now free of flickering. A loose or partially connected video cable can cause the LCD TV's screen to flicker when presenting an image.
    • 3 Turn the TV off and unplug its power cord from the wall outlet. Place a power conditioner next to the wall outlet. Plug the power conditioner's power cord into the wall outlet. Plug the TV's power cord into one of the AC sockets on the power conditioner. Turn the power conditioner on. Turn the TV on to see if the picture is now free of flickering. The RF signals in the electric line that the LG TV is drawing power from can cause flicking through interference patterns being generated.

I can not play dvds, cds ok

Assuming that you mean that you cannot play dvd movies, you need software to play dvds.

You can download a free dvd player but you have to be careful about free software, sometimes they contain hacker tools

Take a look at a site called DVD REVIEWER. Or do a search. I have made all my dvd players region free. Every dvd player is capable of going region free. You just have to find the "secret code" to unlock it. There is a way.

Let me know if you can't find it, and I will dig up the site for you.

Good luck.
