Re: Red M on top

Is the M for Mute, is there sound? The CC has many different stages, if you are on text it would show a black square, and you have CC 1-4. You should be on CC1. Check this first.

How do i add channels on my tv

The closed caption just suddenly appeared on my screen with no buttons pressed. It won't turn off. I no longer have the original remote for this Durabrand 13" DU1301 TV . I was using the Time Warner Cable remote and have a basic cable box attached to the TV. Everything was fine until suddenly with no buttons pushed the closed caption came on. Is there anything sort of buying a new tv to fix this

Closed Caption keeps coming back on

When you turn it off are you going into the setup menu to do this?? if so after it comes back on and you go back to the menu and you see "on" You will need to save your settings before you exit out of the menu

How to turn off the close caption on tv


Not all TV programs and product

commercials are made with

Closed Caption (CC) information

included. Neither are all Closed

Caption modes (CC1, or CC2) necessarily

being used during the transmission

of a closed caption program.

Refer to your area's TV program listings

for the stations and times of
Closed Caption shows.
To close the close caption display from screen; press "CC" button on the remote control.

I have no remote, how do I get off close caption on a TS2554C101

There is a Menu button on the TV for the TS2554 C101. Press this button to get the OSD menu. Then press the vol +/- buttons to highlight Set. Use the Ch +/- buttons to get Closed Caption. Then press Vol+ or Vol - to get the closed caption menu. Use the Ch+/- buttons to set the desired closed caption setting and then press Vol + or Vol - to confirm the selection. Press Menu again to exit.

This will only help if the captions are being interpreted by the TV. If there are open captions, they will not go away. If the closed captioning is on at a set top box, you will need to turn them off using the controls for the set top box. (I know satellite receivers have independent captions available.)

I hope this helps. If your TV doesn't have a menu button on the set, you will need a remote that has a matching Menu function. Some universal remotes should have this feature.

Black boxes in the middle of the screen are text boxes. Text is a part of the closed captioning feature either on your television or your cable/set top box. You would press the closed captioning button on the remote repeatedly until it displays cc off or something similar. Captioning might also be active on your cable box/set top box. There is normally a hidden menu on the cable box and that is where closed captioning is. You have to turn the cable box off. Yes I did say turn the cable box off. Then press the menu button on it and then the hidden menu will pop up. Then navigate to closed captioning and choose disable.

How do i turn off the subtitles on my toshiba 36hf72 tv, without the remote

The subtitles in dubbed videos VCD/DVD the process to follow are :-

The closed caption feature has two options:
• Captions—An on-screen display of the dialogue, narration, and
sound effects of TV programs and videos that are closed
captioned (usually marked as “CC” in TV listings).
• Text—An on-screen display of information not related to the
current program, such as weather or stock data (when provided
by individual stations).
To view captions or text:
1. Tune the TV to the desired program.
2. Press MENU, and then press x or • until the CUSTOM menu
3. Press z or y to highlight CC.
4. Press x or • to highlight the desired closed caption mode, as
• To view captions, highlight C1, C2, C3, or C4 (C1 displays
translation of the primary language in your area).
Note: If the program or video you selected is not closed captioned,
no captions will display on the screen.
• To view text, highlight T1, T2, T3, or T4.
Note: If text is not available in your area, a black rectangle may appear on your screen. If this happens, turn the Closed Caption feature OFF.
To turn off the Closed Caption feature:
Highlight OFF in step 4.
A closed caption signal may not display in the
following situations:
• when a videotape has been dubbed
• when the signal reception is weak
• when the signal reception is nonstandard

PS: If you do not want to set these function & their commands can be entered via the buttons on the TV set. Using the remote is much easier to operate............ sodeep

A black rectangular black screen shows up but..... sony trinitron

Check the set up. You may have closed captioning turned on which will show up as a black box if there is no closed captioning information for the selected channel. If that fails to resolve the problem, update this.

Black square in middle of screen


Most often, these "black box" problems are caused by Closed Captioning being on. There are different types (cc1, cc2, Text, etc.), and different ones interpret different types of closed captioning that are broadcast from the station. It is usually the TEXT ones that cause this problem, because the TV can't interpret the closed captioning symbols it is getting.

On your original TV remote, see if there is a button marker "close caption" or CC. Try pressing this button several times until "closed caption off" or OFF appears on the screen. If there is no button on the remote, then you have to get into the menu of the TV to find the closed caption and turn it off.

I hope this helps you...

Turning off Closed Captioning

On the 27" TruFlat the closed caption button is hidden within the DVD buttons. You have to press it multiple times to shut off closed caption. It seems to have multiple sources for closed captions. Press the button until no source appears on the screen. ITS CONTROLED AT THE REMOTE CONTROL - NOT ON THE ON-SCREEN TV MENUS. Good Luck
