Question about Emerson TC2556D TV
I have the original remote and the tv works fine, but I can't figure out how to get closed captioning feature to work. i am sure it previously was configured and worked fine.
SOURCE: Closed Captioned
Assuming whatever your TV receiving from has close caption. (Not all TV channel has close caption) Solution 1) Get a new universal remote that support your model and has close caption button. Once you program in the code for your TV model and it works then all button should also programmed including th close caption button. Solution 2) Search online for the owner manual and read see how to turn it on using buttons on TV (if possible). Solution 3) Get new TV with close caption. (If you have an old old TV with bad and huge pixels then this solution is the best. Your eyes will thank you.)

On the universal remote hit the menu button then on the TV itself use the vol +/- to select and the channel +/- to move the it up and down. it that simple

If you have this TV connected to a cable box or satellite receiver, the captions may be coming from there. Some of these devices support captioning on their own, separate from the TV. Check the device setup to be sure captions are turned off.

I think Comcast doesn't know much about their equipment; their box has no influence on CC since it is embedded in the program material and is passed through their receiver to your set.
There are two possibilities; the remote is no longer sending the pulse train to control CC or the set's receiver isn't responding to that command.
You can do a rough check on your remote if you own any kind of digital camera; still or video. Turn on the camera so that you have a display picture of the room you are in. Point the remote toward the camera's lens and push (and hold) a button on the remote that you know is working, such as the "Power" button while looking at the LCD display of the camera. You should be able to easily see the blinking of the InfraRed LED(s) which most all digital cameras can 'see.' Once you know what to look for, try the button that should control the Closed Caption function. If you don't see anything on your camera LCD display, that button (or the circuit it controls) isn't sending out the code train required to control that function. If that is the case, you may be able to buy an original ('universal' remotes really aren't) replacement remote from:
Conversely, if you DO see the remote blinking, then the circuit in the TV set that responds to the CC (and others) command has partly failed and that is more costly to repair.
