Re: Closed captioning

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.

Closed Caption is turned on on DVD/VHS player, turned on through the TV. How do you turn the Closed Caption off on DVD

Closed captions only show when you're watching TV. If you're watching a DVD they're called subtitles. Both are controlled by a button on the remote. Closed captions are controlled by a button that's labeled "cc" or "ccd". Subtitles are controlled by a button that is labeled "subtitles" or "sub". Subtitles can also be turned off by going into the DVD setup menu.

Cannot see the screen Philips DVP5990 DVD player. Setting problem

You may have probably turned on Closed Caption on your TV. Unhook the DVD player to find out if it disappears. If it disappears then Closed Caption is on on your TV. Turn off Closed Caption. If cannot find how, give me the brand and model of your TV.

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 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.
