Question about Sanyo DP42746 42 in. Plasma Television
I have DVDs that have closed caption, but not subtitles. I thought maybe the DVDs actually didn't have closed caption since I couldn't get it to show up on my TV, but I let a friend use them and found out they do have closed captioning. How can I get the closed caption to show up on my TV ? If I click on caption on the remote, it says not available. Is it a problem with my settings in my TV ? or is it a problem with the settings on my DVD player? the player is only a year old so I would think it should be able to read closed caption. thanks...Don
It isn't showing up when you press the button on the remote because some DVDs list the caption/language options differently. The DVD itself determines many remote options. Just insert the DVD, go to the DVD settings/options, and select the appropriate option which may say closed captioned or English for the Hearing Impaired.

I had the same problem. My DVD was connected to my HD TV via a HDMI cable as was recommended by the DVD Owners Manual. I removed the HDMI cable and connected the three video component cables to the TV and DVD player. Closed captioning crossed immediately. Either my HDMI cable was defective or CC doesn't cross very well with a HDMI cable.

The DVD player has to have the decoding circuit built in. Most DVD players don't have this.

Tips for a great answer:
Screen Menu > Broadcasting > Caption Try Now
View subtitles along with subtitle-enabled digital and analog broadcasts.
Screen Menu > Broadcasting > Caption > Caption Try Now
Show subtitles. Subtitles will be displayed when you choose a broadcast that supports subtitles.
"" DVD Subtitles are only available when connected to an external input connector.
