Question about Toshiba MD20Q41 20 in. TV/DVD Combo

1 Answer

Captions We inherited the above with the Toshiba remote... however, NO owner's manual or any instructions. There is a printed caption on all of the time. It is irritating. HOW DO I GET "CAPTIONS" OFF? I know that this is a dumb question, but it is driving me nuts... I have pushed every button on the remote! Thank you, Carole

Re: captions

Carol I'll try sending the owner's manual to your personal addy... On the remote, in the center field area there are a row of three buttons, the center button larger than the rest. And right below that a row of four buttons. The one on the right is the CC button. Press that and see if the message disappears... Again I will try sending you the manual.. Bill

Close caption wont come off

Hello delores2469,

The original remote control for this model had a caption button on it, a few rows up from the bottom on the right hand side. I don't recall this model having the cations option in the menus, but it's been a few years since I sold these. If you do not have the original remote I recommend that you get one. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO USE A UNIVERSAL FOR THIS. You will only be throwing away money, trust me on this. You should be able to obtain an original from a local Toshiba authorized retailer, just not a big box. They can't or won't help you. If you do not have a local dealer, you can search for it on the 'net. There are several remote retailers and most have searchable websites by the model. The original Toshiba remote for this was a WC-5BC1.

Hope this helps you and don't forget to rate the answer,

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.
