Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40V3000 Television

1 Answer

Closed Caption We just purchased a Sony Bravia 40V3000 and hooked up with Direct TV. I have tried to set up the Closed Caption for my husband but no text appears when the CC button is pushed-Just that it is on or off. I went into Home and it does show a sample of how it will look but I need to know what I am doing wrong and what the other choices should be set at.Thank you.

Re: Closed Caption

I repair alot of flat panel TVs and whenever you're dealing with a problem with OSD (on screen display) That means that the microprocessor circuit is having a problem. The microprocessor is always found on the main board of these units. So I suggest you take it to an authorized Sony repair shop to be checked out.

How do i get caption only on mute

On newer Sony TVs you press the CC button to cycle through the available settings for Closed Captions (CC): On, Off, and On when

However, it looks like your factory remote control lacks a CC button and your TV menu appears to have a simple Off/On option for what Sony calls Caption Vision. If that is the case then you would need to manually turn on Caption Vision when you mute the television. That hardly seems like the solution you're after.

If you had an aftermarket remote control that could record macros you might be able to program it so that when you press the mute button the TV would mute and also turn on Closed Captioning. This would require the proper remote control and some expertise.

The Subtitle option is available only with the connected devices like DVD Player, Blu-ray Disc Player etc. The option avaialble in the TV is known as Closed Caption. The Closed caption option can be turned off by selecting the options below:
Press Menu button on the TV Remote. Select, Setup settings. Then select Caption Vision option to OFF. This option is for turning off the Closed Caption option in the TV to OFF. For disabling the Subtitle option in the connected devices like DVD Player and Blu-ray Disc Player, press the SUBTITLE button on the supplied Remote continuously to select OFF.
In few of the TV broadcasting channels the Subtitles cannot be turned OFF as this is being broadcasted with the channels.
Good Luck! KenSolutions

Closed Caption on Sony Bravia

Try a master reset on the TV. With the TV powered on, prss and hold down the up button on the remote (there are 4 buttons grouped together for up down left and right) and while holding down the up button, press the power button on the TV. The unit should power off and then turn back on and ask you to select a language. Let me know if this helps and be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

Closed caption

There are external close caption boxes that you can add to your system. But be aware: many cable boxes do not process the close captioning information "through", forcing you to use the close captioning on the cable box.

Closed caption and black square

your TV do not disable close caption in composite mode. It may in component mode. Please make sure that the close caption in your TV menu is not set to "text"
Please be advice that CC :Text is the ONLY one that can give you a black box.

Best regards
