"Production: runin" error message on DVD player

One day i turned on the TV and put a DVD in the player, now for some reason there is always a caption in the top left of the screen saying "production: runin" on it. I have tried all of the manufacturers' recomendations on this but I can't seem to get rid of it. Please help, it is very annoying!

Re: "Production: runin" error message on DVD player

I posted my same question on another site and here is what a serviceman said......basically no parts for repairs from why bother having a repair shop?
here is his answer---
Production Runin?? That's what you see??

I have NEVER heard of that, nor have I SEEN it....and I work On Westinghouse TV sets under warranty.....

And you can't get parts ....isn't that the WEIRDEST thing you've heard?

A warranty repair station cannot get parts from the manufacturer....We're just there to verify it NEEDS parts and if so, it get's exchanged.....

How display captions on TV from DVD player?

The captions availability is part of the DVD program that you are watching. If the movie or feature recorded on the DVD disc has got captions then you should be able to select it as part of the DVD setup menu that shows up on screen when you insert the DVD disc in the DVD player.

Our LG 42LH30 TV for no reason displays closed caption. We cannot turn this feature off as when you try to select it in the set up, it is grayed out and skips past that option to turn off

What is the source of the signal for the TV? The CC may be turned on at the set top box (cable, sat, dvd player). Check the menus for any of these devices. If the source is OTA, then I'm not sure what to suggest.

I hope this helps.

(I have dealt with this for a neighbor. To get the captions on an older TV, they need the captions turned on at the satellite dish receiver and put the system in single mode. So they have to remember to turn off the captions when their hearing impaired relative leaves.)

The Subtitle option is available only with the connected devices like DVD Player, Blu-ray Disc Player etc. The option avaialble in the TV is known as Closed Caption. The Closed caption option can be turned off by selecting the options below:
Press Menu button on the TV Remote. Select, Setup settings. Then select Caption Vision option to OFF. This option is for turning off the Closed Caption option in the TV to OFF. For disabling the Subtitle option in the connected devices like DVD Player and Blu-ray Disc Player, press the SUBTITLE button on the supplied Remote continuously to select OFF.
In few of the TV broadcasting channels the Subtitles cannot be turned OFF as this is being broadcasted with the channels.
Good Luck! KenSolutions

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.)

Close captioning is always on when playing DVDs.

I believe you have to turn the caption off on the DVD. Some dvd's automatically start with caption title. Check the manual for the DVD again.

This is likely your DVD player, not the tv.

First go into the setup menu of your DVD player and make sure "subtitles" are turned off.

Next, put a DVD into the player and when it gets to the menu, go into the audio setup.

If subtitles are turned on, turn them off. If subtitles are turned off, turn them on and exit the menu, then go back into the menu and turn them off again. I've seen this reset this same problem on some DVD players.

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.
