Closed Captioning stopped working

My close captioning stopped working on my TV this evening.  I did the same thing I normally do to turn it on, went to the menu button and switched back to watching TV and it didn't come on.

    Thanks - my remote case doesn't open - I removed the screw - no go. Regardless, the close captioning didn't work even when I tried to do direct physical input on the television. It appears to have been a cable problem - the box rebooted itself yesterday and since then the close captioning is working again. Thanks!

I have tried numerous times to turn the caption on on my tv and it will not even let me go to the 'Closed Caption' option and I would really love for my caption to be on. I need help ASAP!

The tv is on an input that closed captioning does not work on. Captioning may be available on the device connected to this input on the tv.

How do I get closed captioning on a Samsung TV model TXJ2754?


Your TV displays the closed captions that are broadcast with some

television shows. These captions are usually subtitles for the hearing

impaired or language translations. All VCRs record the closed caption

signal and most pre-recorded commercial video tapes provide closed

captions. Check for the closed caption symbol in your television

schedule and on the tape's packaging: .

1 Press MENU repeatedly until you see the Setup menu. Press CH
to select "Caption."

2 Press VOL+ to open the Closed Caption menu.

3 Press VOL + to turn closed captioning on.

Misspellings and odd characters can occur in captioning. Also, there may be a

captioning delay after changing channels. Neither situation is a TV malfunction.

4 Press CH to highlight "Mode." Press - VOL or VOL + to choose

"Capt." (captions) or "Text." In caption mode, captions appear and

cover a small portion of the picture. In text mode, information unrelated

to the program, such as news reports, are displayed and
often cover a large portion of the screen.

5 If you wish, use CH , CH , or VOL + to change the captioning

channel or field. Then, press DISPLAY to return to normal viewing.

 Different channels and fields display different information, such as additional
languages or supplemental information

I am trying to turn on my closed captioning on my 19'' orion tv but dont see it... how do i turn it on

Usually you can turn on the closed captioning from the remote. There (should) be a button labeled "cc" that you just need to press once or twice until you get the closed captioning style you want. If your remote doesn't have this button, or if you don't have a remote, you could try two things. First, you could try (i'm not sure if this would work) going into the tv menu itself and searching for the closed captioning part, or you could just go out and buy a universal remote that has the "cc" key. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Der Strom

I have a panasonic TV. direct tv remote for a . while programming the timer, somehow closed captioning got turned on & i after hours of trying to get it turned off, NO LUCK. it's driving me insane!!...

I could do better with a picture of the remote. Closed captioning is usually a multi-press button, that is each press takes you through each of the four types of closed captioning and then off.
You can enable closed captioning on a DVD Recorder, it looks like the TV, but its only on the picture from the DVD Recorder.
If you have a PVR, you could have closed captioning on on that device.
Try tuning off everything else to make sure it IS the TV.
Turn on the menu and find the closed captioning settings and set to OFF.
Press the close captioning button on the remote (If there is one) and press CC repeatedly until it says OFF.
Try and control close captioning, timer and menus with the ORIGINAL remote and not a programmable one.
Programmable remotes are not always completely compatible.

Need to know how to put the tv on close caption

Captioned programs are marked in TV listings by "CC". so press the cc button on the remote and the closed caption option will be that cc button again to turn off the closed caption option.
1) Check the size and manufactured year of your television. If it was made after 1993 and is larger than 13 inches, it has a closed captioning system built into it. Otherwise, you may need to purchase a separate closed caption system, which are available at a number of online outlets.
  1. 2)Turn on your TV and access the menu for closed captioning. The precise location of the menu varies by television set. Most are accessible by pressing the "Audio" or "Set Up" menu on your remote, then scrolling down to the "CC" or "Closed Captioning" option. Check your owner's manual for precise instructions.
  2. 3)Turn the closed captioning option to the "On" position. It will then run closed captions for every program that broadcasts them. Newer sets may allow you to adjust the size, font and colors of the closed captioning letters to fit your individual tastes.
  3. 4)Tune to a particular program for a few minutes to make sure the closed captions are working. Note that while many broadcasts run closed captioning, not all of them do. If the captions don't appear, check your TV listing to ensure the program includes them.
  4. 5)If you're watching a DVd on your TV, access the DVD's "Set Up" menu. It should have captioned options, which allow you to show captions in English and possibly other languages as well.
  5. thanks.

Cannot Stop Closed Captioning Feature

you might want to make sure it's the tv's close captioning your watching and not your cable or sattelite box's closed captioning, either way you might have to get into the menu of your box, not the tv to turn it off.

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!
