Replace the remote first, if that fails to correct the fault then other repairs are indicated

Can't turn off the closed captioning


I had the same problem. Okay, First get the TV remote. not a cable box remote. Next, switch the input to an Analog input. (TV or input one if you have the RC red, white and yellow hook up. or, just hook up the coax cable straight to the TV..
Now, use the TV remote to operate the closed caption. It will work like it should.\
Briefly, closed caption works on the TV with a straight hook up to the TV. It will not work with a cable box.

Good LUCk

I'm assuming you have a cable converter box (set-top box) that you have hooked to your receiver. Check the box volume using the cable company's remote control. These boxes frequently have variable audio output, and if you turn the volume down on the box you'll have the symptom you're describing. When you press the volume up or down buttons on the remote, you'll usually see a volume bar on the TV screen. As you raise the volume, there may be a point marked by an arrow, which is where you should set the volume. On some boxes, when you get to a certain level the words "best stereo" appear, and that's where to set it. If your box doesn't have some indication like this just leave the volume set 3/4 or full up. Then the volume on the receiver should function properly with the cable TV input.

If the cable box needs to be set to 4, the TV will need to be set to 4 as well as the dvd player. The hookup should be cable box to dvd player to the TV for your system to work. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks.

Try this (may not work):

1. UNPLUG power from TV at wall outlet.

3. Plug power cable back in (at wall outlet)
4. Turn ON TV (don't use remote this time).

Hope this works!

Video 4 not working properly


Hello,

9 out of 10 times, the problem is the device that is hooked up to the TV, and not the TV itself. This is especially true in the case of cable boxes, which have a long history of failures.

Temporarily, you can probably hook up the composite (yellow red and white) cables to get a picture and sound on a different input.

You can try to hook up a DVD player on the inputs (component, I'm guessing) and it will probably work. Then you get to call the cable company!

Hope this helps...

Closed captioning wont turn off


Go to the local Walmart and buy a generic controller and program it to your set. Go to MENU and follow the prompts. The remote will be less than 20 bucks, and you will have a remote that handles the TV, the VCR, the DVD, and the cable box. We go through roughly ten remotes a year. They all make the closed caption go away. One tip: don't lose the manual, or you will need to buy another remote. If the batteries fall out, or go dead, the remote will have to be reprogrammed. Underline the code numbers that work.The black box goes away when the info button on the remote is pressed.

Orion tv model 1934 only 3, 4 and aux no pic or sound!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Turn the set on, hook the cable directly to the TV, take the remote control and press 1 - 1 and if the TV tunes in channel 11 then your set is fine. If the TV was autoprogrammed when hooked to a cable box then the only channels that will be stored in memory are 3, maybe 4 and AUX. To correct this simply go back into the menu and look for the "autoprogram" option and perform the autoprogram while the cable is directly connected to the TV, without a cable box.
