Closed caption activiting on everytime tv is turned on

I do not have the manual on this tv (Phillips 27PT6441). Is there anyway to program it so that the closed caption will not need to be turned off everytime I turn on the tv. I have Suddenlink cable and would like to be able to just use the one remote but until I figure out this problem, I have to keep the tv remote nearby to turn off the closed caption every time the tv is turned on.

Re: Closed caption activiting on everytime tv is turned...

If you have the Suddenlink remote and the DVR box you can turn captions on or off by accessing a technical menu. To do this, press POWER and Menu buttons together (menu 2 times) to bring up a special menu. Select Closed Captions. On the popup menu select closed captions and using Select button change to OFF or ON as you wish. The trick is to get the menu to come up. Timing of pressing the two buttons is frustrating and it may take a few times befotre you get the special menu.

Suddenlink remote controls are are difficult use to get closed captioned. Cheap remote gives closed caption without a problems. Suddenlink should be reported to the Americans With Disibilities regarding how diffficult it is for handicapped people to get closed caption without going through numerous procedures to get closed caption on their television.

Well you could try to change the data channel for the closed caption and see if that helps. It fixed the same problem with my Sharp 36k-x2000!

Need to be able to turn off the closed captions on my magnavox tv. Model# 27ms4504/17 have to achieve it manually. NO REMOTE INVOLVED!

I had same problem was told by phillips that the only way to turn off is by purchasing a new remote. You can buy a universal remote but it has to have a cc button (close caption) on the remote to turn off. Purchase price for Phillips Mag remote is $26 dollars plus shipping and tax.

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.)
