Subtitles and CC are NOT the same. Imagine you are watching a mystery, and the sound of a dog or a scream or a gunshot or a splash is critical to the story. Subtitles will only reproduce spoken words. CC will describe those important sounds. Seriously, these are different, and it annoys me that folks assume they know what's okay for deaf and hard of hearing folks without asking them. As a parent of a person with severe hearing loss, I am annoyed that it is mandatory for all tvs in the US since 1993 to have CC technology, but not dvd or blu-ray players. In fact, the HDMI has not, AFAIK, the ability technically to carry the CC info. Do we try to simultaneously run RCA cables, is that even possible?!

I can't get closed caption off my dvd player

Some DVD players cannot handle closed captions. Cheaper or older hardware players sometimes strip out the closed caption data. Players that have a progressive scan mode sometimes block captions when in this mode. And anything that's connected with an HDMI cable can't pass through captions.Most software players that you use when you play a DVD on your computer don't have any way to decode the captions. Windows Media Player can display DVD captions, and Apple DVD Player can display pop-on captions but not roll-up style captions. Certain paid versions of WinDVD and PowerDVD have CC capability. Look in your player's preferences to see if there are any closed caption options.

By the numbers! How do I turn on the closed

there is no closed captions on dvds, you can use subtitles, very similar to closed captions. just load dvd
look into either extra features or subtitles

it would say "english for deaf/hard of hearing." or just plain english subtitle. either way, it works.

I need to activate CC for my Dad, Please help I have to go to work. I have a flat screen SOYO

Determine if closed captioning is available on the program that you've selected. In your program guide, the letters "CC" should appear at the end of the description.
Locate the closed captioning option on your remote. Some remotes have a "CC" button that you simply need to push to activate closed captioning
Locate the closed captioning option in your television's menu if there is no "CC" button on your remote. To do this, push the "menu" button on the remote control. The closed captioning option will probably be in the same section as the language function.
Set the closed captioning option to "on." Within several seconds, you should see the text appear on your screen.
To use closed captioning for DVDs, look for the "CC" label on the lower back section of the DVD case where it lists audio information. Turn on your TV's closed captioning and you should see the captioning like you do on a television program. Alternately, some DVDs include English subtitles that you can turn on in the setup/language menu of the DVD.
Thank you.

Closed Captions won't work

make sure your dvd player has the capability to display closed captions, as not all of them do, also if it does have the capabilities, it may need a scart connection.

DV2150 Close Captioning

Same problem here.
Instructions for DV2150 say you can access closed caption toggle by going to SETUP, then OTHER then CAPTION, but this (CAPTION) option is missing from the menu. I, too am struggling with the Jeopardy game buzzers, which I cannot program. Was wondering if the lack of "closed caption" is the reason

Closed Captioning

Turn your DVD player on with no disc inside. Use your remote and press the Setup button. From there go to audio and there should be some settings for closed captioning.

Closed captioning

I had the same problem. My DVD player was connected to my HD TV via a HDMI cable as was recommended by the DVD owner's manual. I removed the HDMI cable and attached the three video component cables. Bingo, closed caption crossed immediately.

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.
