Question about LG 37LC7D 37 in. LCD HDTV

Removing closed captioning

We cannot remove the closed caption feature. It only comes up on the HD channels. When I go to "menu" with the remote, it does not allow me to choose the caption option. It is not illuminated as are the other options which can be accessed. When I try to access the menu from the side of the t.v. the message "keylock" appears on the screen.

Re: removing closed captioning

These flat panel TVs are all board replacement only for any type of repairs. Your problem seems to be on the main board where the microprocessor is located. Which means if you're not a technician then you have to take it somewhere to be serviced.

How to remove closed caption on Sony Bravia TV

Check the menu of set and a box if used--both usually have that feature.

In menu look for closed captions (CC) and turn off--settings may exist for leaving it to only come on if sound is muted.

Do not if using a box for signal overlook that also having the same feature.

I have a element 26 inch model# elchs262 .a black band apears in the center of the picture. pushing any button on the remote removes band for a few seconds also time and date and a code apear in band...

This is a text box. This can be turned off under the closed captioning. There should be a cc button on your remote or the closed captioning features can be accessed from your television's menu. Turn closed captioning completely off to get rid of these text boxes.

Removing closed captioning

Worked it out. The Direct TV remote has a yellow button and that did it. I don't know whether I had inadvertently programmed it that way but problem gone.

First, see if your tv is muted. By default, cc comes on when muting that model of tv. Also, you can press menu and navigate to closed captioning and turn it off that way.

Access the TV's menu by pressing the "menu" button on the remote. Look for "Captioning" or if not on the screen try "set-up" or "audio" all the while looking for "CC", "Caption" or "Closed Caption".
When you find it, turn it off.

Turn off closed caption on input(component) on Sharp Aquos 42"

I have a Sharp Aquos 46" and go a Comcast HD receiver as well, and had the same problem turning off the Closed Captioning. I order to turn it off you need to go into the box user setting by (starting w/ the cable box and tv on) pressing the power button for the cable box then the menu button for the cable box. This will open up the user settings menu. Just toggle CLOSED CAPTION to DISABLED.
