Orion tv My mother needs to be able to set the closed caption setting and cannot with the cable remote. We have lost the original remote due to using only cable. We have not needed the closed caption setting. We gave the tv to her and the tv is working great. We bought a universal remote and the list of tv compatible with the remote orion was listed. Once the package was opened and we noticed we could not use the menu setting.........we found the instructions told us we could not use that setting........... please help my mom cannot afford a new tv......she needs this one for her bedroom. Could we get another tv remote for the orion tv? Thank you for your help. Gerald P

    Our young granddaughter has misplaced our remote for our Orion 21MT8 television set. There is nothing wrong with the TV so don't want to replace it but would be happy if someone could advise us where we can get a another remote control from. We have exhausted possibilities from our point of view. Thankyou

Hi Gerald P, just posted we experienced same problem. Few minutes later my husband has finally solved our problem. Don't know whether you can try the same. We had an old FOXTEL remote, got onto FOXTEL site and instructions how to program remote to control TV.

Dowloaded instructions with code for TV (after trying a few tries, the fifth code solved it). FOXTEL control needs to be programmed with the code suitable to TV. By pressing "ON", "AV", Red button and Select (at same time) then put code in. Turn "OFF" then "ON" see if code complies. If not try another one until you get it.

By using the FOXTEL remote on the "AV" you can change the channels on the TV and adjust volume up or down as well.

Hope this can help you in your situation. Glad we are up and running again. Bye

I have an Orion 19"

You usually need the original remote. The trouble with universal remotes is that they generally control only the basic functions of a TV (power, volume, channel) but not much else. Without the original, you often lose other functions. You can try the front panel buttons if yours has them. On some sets the on-screen menus allow you to access caption settings.

But are you sure the captions are coming from the TV? Sure, the TV is displaying them, but if you have a satellite receiver, cable box or digital set-top box, the captions may be coming from that device. This is likely to be true if the captions just mysteriously started and you don't have or aren't using the TV original remote. These devices often don't allow a TV's built-in caption decoder to work properly, so they provide captions themselves. You may have turned captions on using that device's remote. Check the menu for caption controls.

Suddenly, it's got "closed caption" or "subtitles" showing and DirectTV says it has to be the TV because my receiver doesn't support closed captions. There is no remote for this TV and the "menu" options...

Sometimes more than one button pushed [same time] on the tv itself can create an undesireable mode or setting. You may need an original remote to correct this. Contact Orion Sales at 1 800 289 0980

I do not know how to turn off the closed captioning on my son's orion tv set. I do not know the model type. I do know that closed captioning options are not on the menu.

If you have the original remote look for a button labeled "CC" or "Caption/Text" press this button till the screen says caption off.

How do I get to closed captioning on the TV?

You will need the original remote. The TV/CAP/TEXT button turns it on and off. The CH.1/2 button switches between channel 1 and 2 of the closed captioning.

You will have to order the original remote to do what you want!

Go back to the store where you bought the set and see if they will order you a new remote.
