Question about RCA DRC290 DVD Player

Open Question

Cant turn on either closed captions or subtitles on dvds that say they have them

I have some dvds that are labeled as closed captioned and others that have 'english subtitles'. I know these are different things but I cant get my rca drc 290 to show either cc or subtitles. There is an option to set subtitles on English in the RCA player menu. This is set to 'English' (the other choice is 'off' or other languages. My tv is set to show closed captions. I set the cable hdm1 box to show cc. I wired up the tri coloured cables from player to tv and tried playing the dvds through the AV setting on the tv. Still no luck. What might the problem be? I get closed captions on the cable box butcant seem to get the player to even show subtitles. Thank you for any suggestions. Liz

SOURCE: Problem hooking up DVD player to TV thru my cable box

Chances are you've got your DVD player hooked to OUPUT jacks on the cable box, not inputs. I haven't yet seen a box that takes any kind of an input other than the cable line, but they will have RCA jacks for audio and video outputs on the back. So your cable channels are fine, but the DVD signal is hitting a dead end.

The only solution if your TV doesn't have RCA inputs for video and audio is to get an RF converter (around $10-$20). This takes the A/V signals from your DVD and turns them into a channel 3 or 4 signal that connects to your TV's antenna input.

The converter also has a connector on the back for the cable coming from the cable box, since you'll have to disconnect that from the TV. When the DVD player is off, the cable box signal gets passed to the TV as normal. Turn on the DVD player and the RF converter switches on; put your set on channel 3 or 4 and you'll see your video.

One final thing: The converter will need an AC outlet for its power adapter or power cord, so make sure you have a spare. If you don't already have your TV and DVD player connected to one, this would be a good time to pick up a surge-protector outlet strip. Then not only will you have enough outlets, you'll be protecting your equipment as well.

If this solution has given you what you need, please take a moment to rate it appropriately. And thanks for asking here!

SOURCE: Will my rca dvd player,

It will not do this during basic playback. You may be able to use the programmed Playback. Press Program when the unit is not playing back a DVD. Then use the numeric input buttons to choose the title or track. Then use the up/down and right left arrows to enter additional titles to playback.

You can find your manual here: http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/manual.aspx?product=125

I hope this helps.

Can't turn on closed captioning and subtitles


If it's only with some DVDs, then the problem likely lies in the DVD itself not containing any subtitles or CC.

Closed Caption is turned on on DVD/VHS player, turned on through the TV. How do you turn the Closed Caption off on DVD


Closed captions only show when you're watching TV. If you're watching a DVD they're called subtitles. Both are controlled by a button on the remote. Closed captions are controlled by a button that's labeled "cc" or "ccd". Subtitles are controlled by a button that is labeled "subtitles" or "sub". Subtitles can also be turned off by going into the DVD setup menu.

there is no closed captions on dvds, you can use subtitles, very similar to closed captions. just load dvd

it would say "english for deaf/hard of hearing." or just plain english subtitle. either way, it works.

Cant get the subtitles of the screen been pressing the subtitle button thanks.


Are you sure they are subtitles rather than closed captioning (if it is TV rather than DVD, it is closed captioning)?

If it is closed caption, pressing subtitle won't turn them off. If there is a button that says "Closed Caption" or "CC" press it. If not, press menu and look for the CC option (it should be under video or audio depending on the TV). Turn it off.

If you are watching a foreign language movie on TV (not DVD) it is likely hardsubbed (you can't turn the subs off because they are burned into the video).

I need to activate CC for my Dad, Please help I have to go to work. I have a flat screen SOYO


Determine if closed captioning is available on the program that you've selected. In your program guide, the letters "CC" should appear at the end of the description.
Locate the closed captioning option on your remote. Some remotes have a "CC" button that you simply need to push to activate closed captioning
Locate the closed captioning option in your television's menu if there is no "CC" button on your remote. To do this, push the "menu" button on the remote control. The closed captioning option will probably be in the same section as the language function.
Set the closed captioning option to "on." Within several seconds, you should see the text appear on your screen.
To use closed captioning for DVDs, look for the "CC" label on the lower back section of the DVD case where it lists audio information. Turn on your TV's closed captioning and you should see the captioning like you do on a television program. Alternately, some DVDs include English subtitles that you can turn on in the setup/language menu of the DVD.
Thank you.

HOW DO YOU REMOVE THE SUBTITLES OFF MY 36ZP38 TV PLEASE HELP


Sounds like the closed caption option is active.Check your remote to see if you have a button labeled"CC" that would turn it off and on. If not go into customer menu look for closed caption option turn it off. If you have a cable or satellite box they may also have closed caption option that you can turn off.

Do you mean the closed captioning or is it the subtitles when viewing a DVD. If it is the DVD then the subtitles need to be turned off on the DVD player. If it is the closed caption and you have a HD Comcast or other type of cable box, then the CC needs to be turned off on that device.

Closed caption on dvds


Your TV will need to have (CC) capability. To view Closed Captioning (CC) information from a DVD using the CC function of the television, turn off the Progressive Scan function of the DVD player. If the DVD player doesn't have progressive scan then follow the instructions from your TV manual to setup closed captioning.
