Hi rafaelvh,
If you see the manual.
(go here if you dont have it)
http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/man-migrate/MANUAL000060450.pdf
You can see on page 14 that it talks about the close caption.
"Not all programs offer the Closed Caption option. Please refer to the [CC] symbol to ensure the caption option is available."

It can also be caused if the broadcast source is poor, or the signal is weak.

How do I turn off closed caption on my 32 inch RCA LED LCD TV


Hello there

If you are connected to a cable box or satellite receiver then the tv does not control the CC , it is turned on/off at the cable box.

Depending on the cable box or sat. receivers model , it depends where you will find it but I can tell you that if you cannot find it in the standard settings/menu then many cable box will have it in the base/setup menu that you can access by turning off the cable box and press menu , this will open a different menu with various items including closed caption

Hope this help and happy tv :)

Pioneer PureVision 434CMX purchased from a friend who had it hooked up to a receiver, I just have it hooked directly into the cable box. Great picture, no sound.


The PureVision PDP-434CMX is a Plasma monitor. Speakers are not included in the unit (but were available as an add-on option). You will need to connect external speakers to the TV (soundbar or other type of speaker).

For additional information, see: http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Professional/Plasma/PDP-434CMX . The direct link to the technical manual is http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pio/pe/images/portal/cit_3424/287687415PDP434CMX_TMv3.pdf . The available third party expansion products are listed here:

I hope this helps.

I have samsung tv and de comcast cable,but i try to put the close caption and isn't work,can you help me please


closed caption can be blocked by the cable box- make sure cable box is set to allow closed caption.

on the TV, makes sure CC is set to CC1.

be certain you are on a Closed Caption program...all PBS stations are Closed Caption, all the time.

Dont know how to get the words to stop comming up when they talk captins on


If you have a cable box or satellite tv receiver connected to this television, and you are using the cable company/satellite tv company remote control the captions are not coming from your television. They are not controlled by your television or your television's remote. There is usually a hidden menu where captions can be enabled and disabled. You reach it by turning off your cable box and then immediately pressing the menu button. If your cable box/satellite tv receiver does not work this way the company can troubleshoot/walk you through removing the captions. If they cannot request to speak to a supervisor.

If this does not apply to you because you don't have a cable box or satellite tv receiver then there is usually a closed caption button on your remote control even if it is under a hidden fla or there is a closed caption option in the television's setup menu that can also be accessed with the television's remote control.

Cant get caption to highlight on setup menu


the closed captioning will only work when the tuner is selected. if you are using a hdmi input from a cable box you need to use the cable box's c.c.

Close captioning on HDMI


The TV will not display closed caption with HDMI input. It must either over-the-air (antenna) or composite input for the TV to manage CC.

To get CC with HDMI from your Comcast DVR, you need to configure the cable box. Instructions can be found here:
http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/How_to_use_a_Motorola_DVR/Setup

If you want CC all of the time, this works well. But since you must power-off the cable box to change the setting, switching CC on and off is a real pain.

Your set-up is similar to mine (Sharp Aquos 46" and Comcast DVR). I have the composite output from the cable box going to a DVD-recorder and on to the TV. Whenever I need CC (usually to catch some mumbled dialog), I just rewind the DVR, and switch the TV input to the composite input. Then I switch back to HDMI to continue watching in HD.

Large grey box


That may be that one of the closed captioning modes has been enabled. One of the closed caption modes or text modes does the box in the centre of the screen. Make sure that the CC on the TV and cable box is not on.

No Closed Caps With HDMI Cable


The information the closed-caption decoder in the TV needs is not provided over the HDMI cable from your converter box. This means the TV's closed-captioning can't be used. But the cable box should provide closed-captioning, so check its setup menus. Contact your cable provider for more information if it's not obvious from the box setup how to turn captions on.
