Toshiba TV 32AV502U - closed captioning

We just purchased this TV, and this is a minor thing, but a bit of a pain, as we have a hearing challenged person who likes to mute the TV so we can have a conversation.

When we mute the TV, the closed captioning does not come on - even on channels that we KNOW are closed captioned. The only place they appear is on the HD channels.

We do not want the captions on all the time.

    the cable company should have no problem sending someone out to help you and show you how to do this at no charge. I find that some installers just get the job done and leave.

Have a toshiba 50" Plasma TV purchased 11/06.


I do not think there is an issue with the TV. I do not think that the station themselves broadcast the Closed Captioning.

Does the toshiba 27a44 have closed captioning?


Hello
You have two options with closed caption feature.

[2] Press CAPTION/TEXT repeatedly to select caption or text mode.
[3] Press 1/2 to select the caption or text channel.
[4] To turn to off the closed caption feature, press CAP/TEXT repeatedly until captions or text no longer display 0n-screen.
Ok.

As far as i remember Samsung makes all the screens Toshiba uses. I would try to contact Toshiba for a replacement screen, from what i've heard the price of the screen is comparable with the price of a new TV

hope this helps,

Misspelling on Closed Caption


Yes - perhaps yoga, or a nice massage. You have some seriously uptight members!! It is either a computer error in translating a word from speech, or a human mistyping a word.... but it's all at the broadcast end, you really have no control over it. Try looking up "closed captioning" on Wikipedia.... and relax, the world is not perfect :)

New Toshiba 37" flat screen always displays Closed Captions. Feature is turned off with TV remote, feature not available on Cable remote. Toshiba says it is Cable company problem, Mediacom cable can...


I've had this problem for a bit, it seems that there are two ways to turn off the closed captions.
1:Menu--->Preferences--->CC and Digital Audio Selectors. This displays the menu on the bottom of the screen with the choices of Closed Caption formats and digital audio. This is not the correct menu to be in. This turns off the CC as long as the TV is not turned off or the input is not changed. This is a temporarily either turns the CC on or off.
The Solution:
2:Menu--->Setup--->TV Settings--->Closed Captions Settings Displays a menu in the center of the screen, with the options of Turning the Closed Captions on and off, the Analog CC Mode and Digital CC settings. You must turn the Closed Captions off in this menu or the changes to CC are temporary.
For the record:
1. I'm aware I'm 2 years late on this, but I just want others to be able to solve this issue on their Toshiba. Don't worry, my Toshiba is the same age as yours
2. I've lost faith in Tech Support ages ago. I'm sorry that they were that incompetent.
3. Its ridiculous that there are two entirely different menus to alter the closed captions. Took me forever to figure this out.
Hope this helps you and others.

Closed caption problem


I had the same issue... here's what I did.  If power off your cable box, then press the menu button, there's a selection to enable or disable Closed Captioning.  This works for both HD series Motorola boxes Comcast offers, at least in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.  Hope this helps!
