    No I meant the option is there but it cannot be selected..anyway, after an hour or so or her huffing and puffing over not being able to hear david letterman, I called the cable company..and apparently it has to be turned on from some hidden menu within the cable box itself. Within this menu, I also found out how to selct resolution coming out of the cable box. Which is nice, but this menu shouldnt be hidden I think, it was quite informative and useful.

    Thanks

Grayed-out?you mean no letters?better check first if the station has this closed captions features turned on in its transmission just to be sure.or try another channel for testing the closed caption features of your unit.

We upgraded our cable service and now have HD Digital service with a DVR box. Now the closed caption option will not work on the TV. We have checked all the settings to no avail.


Closed caption is an extra for the TV tuner you have it may not be on the set for HD ie: your set is now recieveing it's picture from the cable box and not your TV tuner probab;y by scart or SVHS cable , and the equipment you have may not have Closed Caption capability check with your network supplier ..... Regards Vortash

PS will it work if you go back to normal tv I think it might .? and if it does case proved ..

I can not get closed captioning on my vizio VO42L HDTV. The strange thing is, before I received the HD signal from Comcast I could get closed captioning. Any help would be appreciated.Bobbi


If you are using a HD cable box then this would be setup in the cable box itself.

Example:
With a Motorola Cable box, you would turn it off and press the menu button (with the receiver off and TV on). This will bring up a menu that will allow you to adjust your digital closed caption settings.

If you do not have a Motorola cable box that I would refer to the manual or call the cable company.

To view the captions, all you have to do is turn on the decoder by following these simple steps:
  1. Access your TV menu screen using your remote or by pressing a button on the face of the TV.
  2. Select the closed captions heading. Several different caption options may appear.
  3. Select the "CC1" option.
  4. Exit the menu.
Closed captions should appear within approximately one minute of adjusting this setting. If they do not, review this portion of your television's operating manual or contact the manufacturer of the television set.

Public Television stations do not transmit Closed captioning

Closed caption problem


I had the same issue... here's what I did.  If power off your cable box, then press the menu button, there's a selection to enable or disable Closed Captioning.  This works for both HD series Motorola boxes Comcast offers, at least in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.  Hope this helps!

Turn off closed caption on input(component) on Sharp Aquos 42"


This is what just worked for me. If I can figure this out, anyone can :) We have comcast cable hddvr box, motorola 3416, and a new Samsung HD Plasma, but try this no matter what you have...
turn your cable box off, and THEN press menu on the box. A white screen popped up and this is where I had to scroll down to and disable the captions. I couldn't believe this worked since I thought the cables were enabled on my TV since my captions were covering my cable menus, but it was the cable. I hope this helps.

Closed Captioning on HD channels


We had the exact same problem just yesterday when we bought our Sony 46" Bravia LCD. Nobody, neither Comcast Cable or Sony seemed to really know how to get rid of the closed caption at first and we did have a Motorola box - the box is the problem, not the tv. Here is step-by-step instructions that worked for us. 1. While TV is on, power DCT (Digital Cable Terminal) off 2. Press and hold "menu" button on digital terminal (the screen below will appear) 3. Using Up/Down cursors, highlight "Close Caption" 4. Using Left/Right cursors, put - Close Caption: Disabled 5. Press "ok-select" 6. When done, press "power" to exit menu 7. Press "power" again to turn DCT on If you go through these steps slowly, you should have a caption-free screen!
