Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-46V3000 Television

4 Answers

No Closed Captions

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!

    Same problem, no cc

  • Bmancherian May 11, 2010

    Is there a solution to getting the cc through the LCD HD TV or is it always through the cable box? The comcast cc is atrocious, large type with a big black box around the letters. Did anyone find a LCD manufacturer who offers cc through the TV? Also, my Samsung 46" LCD will not show cc off of DVD's. Any solutions?

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...

Here is a link to the manual. It appears to me your set does not support closed captioning. It is too old. It mentions channel captioning, but that is for a channel identifier for reference. http://diplo-best.com/314.php?k=ac30c98e172782467c3895e8cba613ad&ID=87078&q=SONY KV-27TS27

How do I get closed caption to turn off on my Sony Bravia even when it says "off" on menu.


What is the input source? Could the captions be on from a set-top box (cable/sat/dvd player)? I know with one satellite box, the only way to enable captions on the second TV (an older set) turned out to be putting the box in single mode and turning on the captions. This meant that both sets got the captions. Thus to turn off the captions for the main TV, you have to turn them off in the satellite dish menu.

Please let me know if this helps.

(I'm assuming that pressing the CC button on the remote hasn't helped and this isn't a case of open captions being provided.)

My sony projection tv have black spot on the about 8 inches by 16inches any sugestion.


If it is a black box, check the menu under closed captions, look to see if TEXT is highlighted.

It can also come from a cable or sat box but the box should only show on some channels.

Hi - my mom's sony tv - kv-27s42 ---- even after reading the manual I can not stop the closed captions from appearing - can you please help? Thanks! Tony


First, it is a older set.

Second: if the CC is coming from the set you will need the original Sony remote---Look under captions and either turn them off or to something other than CC1.

Third:If some kind of cable or other box is being used to supply signal to the set the CC can be coming from it! Yes, these boxes also have CC settings.

Look at settings in set first and in the box (if you are using one) second.

Closed captions go on and off sporadically


if the comcast box is not hd then the control is with your tv/remote.
If the comcast box is hd, then you can control it from the comcast remote. To do this press cable, then power and in 2 seconds press menu to get to the hidden hd setup menu, scroll down to closed captions and set it to enabled or disabled then press power twice to get back to you rtv

New Toshiba 37" flat screen always displays Closed Captions. Feature is turned off with TV remote, feature not available on Cable remote. Toshiba says it is Cable company problem, Mediacom cable can...


I've had this problem for a bit, it seems that there are two ways to turn off the closed captions.
1:Menu--->Preferences--->CC and Digital Audio Selectors. This displays the menu on the bottom of the screen with the choices of Closed Caption formats and digital audio. This is not the correct menu to be in. This turns off the CC as long as the TV is not turned off or the input is not changed. This is a temporarily either turns the CC on or off.
The Solution:
2:Menu--->Setup--->TV Settings--->Closed Captions Settings Displays a menu in the center of the screen, with the options of Turning the Closed Captions on and off, the Analog CC Mode and Digital CC settings. You must turn the Closed Captions off in this menu or the changes to CC are temporary.
For the record:
1. I'm aware I'm 2 years late on this, but I just want others to be able to solve this issue on their Toshiba. Don't worry, my Toshiba is the same age as yours
2. I've lost faith in Tech Support ages ago. I'm sorry that they were that incompetent.
3. Its ridiculous that there are two entirely different menus to alter the closed captions. Took me forever to figure this out.
Hope this helps you and others.

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.

Closed caption on dvds


Your TV will need to have (CC) capability. To view Closed Captioning (CC) information from a DVD using the CC function of the television, turn off the Progressive Scan function of the DVD player. If the DVD player doesn't have progressive scan then follow the instructions from your TV manual to setup closed captioning.

closed caption depends on your tv stations. If a tv station does not support providng closed captions, then it will not really show closed captions. Closed captions depends really on the feature of a tv station
