Question about RCA Universal Remote 3 Device Remote Control

1 Answer

Captioning Ok there is no captioning button on my tv or the remote i bought. Something happened when I was pressing the volume keys on the remote and the captioning ended up on the tv. I could not get it off. Then, the same thing happened again and now the big text box is on the screen. I have tried everything I can, yet I cannot replicate what happened, so I can't get the text box off. I need help, please.

Try getting into the tv menus with the menu button on the remote or the menu button on the tv. Find closed caption or CC and turn it off in the menus.

Why does a black box keep appearing on my screen?


The box is probably because you have closed-captioning turned on and set to "text" mode. Check the TV remote control for a button marked "CC" or "CAPTION" or something similar. Press the button to cycle through captioning options until you get to "OFF". This should clear up the trouble.

What's happening is that in text mode, the TV blanks out the area on the screen where the text should go, but there's nothing to display. Text mode isn't widely used, but in some markets it's used to display weather or other information. What sometimes happens is that the caption button on the remote gets pressed and you don't know the TV is set to text mode until the box starts coming up. And it doesn't happen on every channel, or even all the time on the same channel, so it can seem very random.

Thanks for using Fixya!

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.

Closed Captioning comes on every time i turn on the tv!


Apparently the 2002 Sharp model TV that I purchased has the closed captioning by default if the mute button is engaged. So there is no solution for my particular model, it has been built in this way. The only solution is not to use the mute button and lower the volume instead.

Black box


Make sure your closed-captioning is turned off. This box appears when you have captioning set for "text" mode and the set is on a channel where captions are being broadcast. The TV blanks the part of the screen where the text would go, but there isn't any to display. Some TV's have a single button on the remote to turn captioning on, and it's easy to set the TV for captioning without knowing it.

Panasonic flat screen can't turn off closed captioning...help...


Here's the solution...solved last night...And I'm not stupid, but Comcast is...
Our Comcast box has a flaw so says the tech support after 2 hours on hold...As much as I don't like Comcast, I have to say the English-speaking tech support person is a miracle worker...I thanked him over and over again...
If you have this problem with an HDTV and Comcast, try this: Press the power button on your cable box as soon as you release the button press the menu button twice.
You'll see a "secret" menu on your screen.
If it flashes by and doesn't stay, don't worry...
Repeat the process...Sometimes it takes 10 times or more to work (you can also try holding the menu button for 5 seconds after you release the power button).
When you get the screen use your arrow keys on your remote to select "disable" on the closed captioning option...Click ok on your remote and press power on your box.
Best of luck to anyone stuck with closed captioning...Hope this helps! Jen
