Question about Akai CF2791 27" TV

1 Answer

Closed Captioning My elderly father has an Akai CFT2791 television.  He really needs to turn on the closed captioning, but naturally he has lost the manual.  I have looked on the web and cannot find one.  Could anyone post the sequence for turning on the CC or the source for the manual?

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

Closed captioning is activated. HOw do I cancel it WITHOUT remote

Unfortunately, many sets these days do not allow you to access the closed captioning options without a remote. The good news is that universal remotes do and they are relatively cheap. When you look for a universal remote, be sure that it has a menu button on it. Expect to pay between $5-$7 for one.

How do I get to closed captioning on the TV?

You will need the original remote. The TV/CAP/TEXT button turns it on and off. The CH.1/2 button switches between channel 1 and 2 of the closed captioning.

Turning off Closed Captioning

On the 27" TruFlat the closed caption button is hidden within the DVD buttons. You have to press it multiple times to shut off closed caption. It seems to have multiple sources for closed captions. Press the button until no source appears on the screen. ITS CONTROLED AT THE REMOTE CONTROL - NOT ON THE ON-SCREEN TV MENUS. Good Luck

meknow is right I think. To turn off your closed captioning hopefully all you need to do is get into the setup menu. You didn't list what kind of TV you have so this is a generic solution. Go into menu and in a setup menu there will be a closed captioning way to select to turn the box off.
The reason sometimes you see it and sometimes you don't is because some programs have closed cationing and some don't.
And because you are only seeing a blank box and not closed captioning is because there are different closed captioning standards. CC1, CC2, etc.
So if you can find the menu item that allows you to turn off the closed captioning, it would be a good start to solving your problem.
