SOURCE: closed captions will not disappear

Some TV will not display close caption in HD mode. This is why its Grey out in HD mode. If you switch to regular input, i can bet you your close caption will not be Grey out. The problem you are having is your cable box has close caption enable. You must go into the cable box menu and turn caption off. In some box you may have to call your cable provide for assistant.

Best regards

SOURCE: close caption

You need to turn on closed captions through the menu of your PVR. To have it on all the time, turn the box off, press menu on the front of the box, and scroll down to captions.
This should fix the problem

SOURCE: Sony 46" XBR2 Cannot turn off closed caption

With TV on, turn off DVR and hit menu on DVR remote - you can disable CC from there.  Worked for us - got the idea from another fixya post.

Sony KDF-E42A10 6 red flashes and i replaced the thermostat, no change


I have never seen the thermal fuse replacement not fix this problem. What is the part number that you put in the set? Do you know how to use a meter? After you replaced the thermal sensor did the set try to come on at all? or was it the same exact problem as before?
Let me know

Solid green light but no picture


I think this is a projection set. Sonys are called SXRD type lcd projection . Little diff from DLP types. But they do have a lamp. Unplug set plug back in then turn on . Count blink code. Check lamp also. blink code is 2 digit code. Code will give clue to failure.

Sony kdf-e42a10 green light blinking, followed by solid red lamp light - tv will not respond to power button


Follow instructions in owner manual and remove and inspect lamp to see if shattered inside.

Most of these sets have a 2,000 hour life span on the lamp which is customer replaceable.

Black square in middle of screen


You have selected a text option and there is no text available. Also pressing the display button on remote could turn cc and text on or off. the black box is a text option not closed caption. page 70-72 in owners manual might explain better.

Closed caption text is pale white now instead of bright green


Theres no color option on this set as far as the manual says. It sounds like the Video driver comming out of the microprocessor is bad, so the micro will need to be replace. This is not a user replaceable part so please seek a pro to repair this for you. Sorry i couldnt assist you more with this. Good Luck
