Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-46V3000 Television
Sony tech support offers no help. These idiots even have a problem reading from their script. I just got my new tv this afternooon. I am unable to get the captions to turn on. I went through ALL the settings for both aux and digital. Cc1-4, and Settings 1-6 on both and still nothing. I tried to access the setting through my Comcast box and I still cannot get them to turn on. I don't know if this might be an issue with my HD coax cables or if the tv is defective. Before I waste another entire day waiting for the Geek Squad to come back out (possibly with a tv to replace this defective one) I was hoping that someone here could help. PLEASE!
Hi i had the same problem with my sony kdl-40v2500 with the comcast cable box.The fixing is you have to do it through cable box.Leave your tv on and turn your cable box off and hit the menu button twice on the remote repeat in till you see cable menu on the screen and you can eneble-desable the caption through there

If you have cable, it is necessary -believe it or not- for them to enable it on your cable box. It is "off" by default, and from what I can tell, it goes to default when it is powered down for time.
I have a problem with my Sony KDL-46-2500 LCD where closed caption is garbled and words run together or missing on all channels EXCEPT for one local channel and the premium channels like HBO. Replacing the TV with another one proved it is not the signal. The bandwidth on the decoder seems to be very narrow and is missing it or wavering because the industry standard is wider than Sony has set the decoder. They are coming to get my TV Monday and try to fix it. I need the closed caption, so for me it is not a matter of preference. If there is a fix that is other than what has been determined so far, I will post it for you. Good luck.

What type of cables are you using to go from the cable box to the tv ?? are there 3, 5 or the one that looks like a USB port ??? Usually when you connect using those cables the closed captioning comes from your cable box or satellite receiver. Most TV's dont offer closed captioning once you go from the TV tuner to an input. Hope that helps...
