The problem you are experiencing lies with your provider and not your local set.

The only thing you can do is switch to direct tv / dish network or alert your provider to the issue you have.

Your local cable provider will blame the problem on your television and claim they have no solution for the situation.

This is an uphill battle but, the problem is not your fault.

Good luck.... I suggest getting satillight.

It might be because your 4:3 override on your cable box needs to be set to 480p

My closed caption is on and I can't turn it off. I don'want the writing on the screen


Did you try turning it off with the closed caption button on the remote? Its labelled cc. If you dont have the original Vizio remote you will need to go into menu-settings and find the closed caption and turn it off there

We have tried several times over thelast few months BUT can NOT get the close caption to work....HELP!!!


Hello
There is a button on the remote control of your TV marked {CC}. This button is used to select the closed caption option to On and OFF. Presing it repetedly will change the options as described below.

CC/Stop - This button will select the Closed Caption menu

in the TV mode. Options include the following: OFF, CC1,

CC2, CC3, CC4, TT1, TT2, TT3 or TT4. Additionally, this

button stops the CD, DVD or VCR when the component is
activated with the remote control. If it doesn't work, means that button on your remote control is not working, and the remote control should be replaced. OK.

My Vizio 37' flat Screen TV Closed Caption wont turn off


If you have a digital cable box, turn off the box but leave the TV on. Hit the "Menu" button on the front of your cable box and a setup menu should come on. Use the cursor buttons on your box's front panel to go down to the "Captions" option, which is probably set to "Enabled" and hit the right or left cursor button to change it to "Disabled." That should solve your problem.

Get closed captions on some channels, but not all, even though it is CC


RCA have choices for different methods of CC in user CC menu. Labelled T1, T2, etc. . Different selections are for different types of close caption. Tune to a signal (on your other TV) that has closed caption working.

Tune your RCA to the same signal. Change the T1,T2, etc settings until the closed caption for your signal appears.

If this doesn't work, try connecting analog video or VHF channel 3 (or other specified channel) to the TV. check CC. When TV stations, sat channels, sat receivers, cable boxes etc, convert analog video signals to HD, problems can result. Some equipment causes RCA TVs to do unexpected things with sound and closed caption.

If you use RF or video output, old analog video may look better on CH3 or video than on HD input and the CC will work more consistently. Watch HD signals on HD input, Analog signals on Video in or through the TV tuner . Many HD channels and programs are converted analog video and look poor on TV HD inputs.

Sounds like a bad av connection on the main board. i would try to connect the xbox via an alternate av connection or hdmi to verify problem. contact vizio support and describe your problem. they have had trouble with this main board. some of their parts have lifetime warranties and the service call is free. changing out the main board is a pretty simple process, about an hour or less. hope this helps.
