Re: cc on

The "normal way to shut it off" is a little vague to me-- ---Have you tried selecting CC1,CC2,CC3,or TEXT1,2,or3? Take your time selecting caption on functions and thus you will discover how to de-activate cc.I am guessing that since you moved,you can't locate your owners manual??--Last thought-is your source box cc on??

How do i remove the captions off the bottom of the tv with my remote

Be aware that closed captions or CC can come either from the set or a cable or sat box (those have that feature also).

In menu (set or box) look for Closed captions and select off or whatever removes them--some sets/boxes have a option that they only come up when sound is muted.

If you want to prove where it is coming from and have cable--hook it direct to set with no box to see if still there or not--if not it is coming from the box used--go into its menu and turn it off.

I cannot shut off the closed captions

you have two choices. either the CC is coming from the set (ie closed caption) or if you are using a box of some kind (cable, sat etc) it can come from that also/

If from the set you need a working originial remote to remove it, same with the box if it is causing it.

CC can come from either the set or a box hooked up to the set.

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.

New Toshiba 37" flat screen always displays Closed Captions. Feature is turned off with TV remote, feature not available on Cable remote. Toshiba says it is Cable company problem, Mediacom cable can...

I've had this problem for a bit, it seems that there are two ways to turn off the closed captions.
1:Menu--->Preferences--->CC and Digital Audio Selectors. This displays the menu on the bottom of the screen with the choices of Closed Caption formats and digital audio. This is not the correct menu to be in. This turns off the CC as long as the TV is not turned off or the input is not changed. This is a temporarily either turns the CC on or off.
The Solution:
2:Menu--->Setup--->TV Settings--->Closed Captions Settings Displays a menu in the center of the screen, with the options of Turning the Closed Captions on and off, the Analog CC Mode and Digital CC settings. You must turn the Closed Captions off in this menu or the changes to CC are temporary.
For the record:
1. I'm aware I'm 2 years late on this, but I just want others to be able to solve this issue on their Toshiba. Don't worry, my Toshiba is the same age as yours
2. I've lost faith in Tech Support ages ago. I'm sorry that they were that incompetent.
3. Its ridiculous that there are two entirely different menus to alter the closed captions. Took me forever to figure this out.
Hope this helps you and others.

Your closed caption is turned on. Go into the menu and set captions to off or look for captions button on remote. Sometimes identified as cc. Press it until "captions off "appears on screen. That should do it. Good luck.

Closed caption

If you have cable or satelite receiver the cc must be set up properly in the receiver. If just using and antenna or cable direct to tv then make sure the cc is not set in the wrong position.

Closed caption

Have you verified that the programs you're viewing have closed-captioning service? Some programs and stations do not support CC on programs and commercials. The closed captions are accessed on the HD52W56 by pressing Menu > Preferences > Closed Captions on the remote control and following the onscreen instructions. Select CC1(the first choice for caption); this is the format most stations send in. Good luck!

Large Black Box Showing up in middle of screen.

When a black box appears on the screen it means that your closed captions are on and set to TEXT. When the closed captions are set to CC1, it puts the words on the screen and when set to TEXT it puts a black box in the center of the screen. Go into the set's menu, navigate to the closed captions page and set the captions to OFF.
