    Same problem as described. Watching TV no problem. Suddenly goes to blue screen with message that there is a cable/signal error. Tried switching to DVD player (different cables) and also got a blue screen there. Must be something within the circuitry of the TV because the Cable box and DVD player work independently using separate cables.

How do you turn on closed caption on apex digital flat screen tv?


not all sets have the capability, not all programmes have captions.

This tell you how to turn OFF, but just choose ON.
http://captionmax.com/resources/turn-off-captions/

and I found this

Best Answer: There are two types of closed captions; analog and digital. It's possible that you turned one off and not the other. Some sets will only allow you to access the menus for the type of signal you are watching so make sure you are tuned to the offending channel when you access the menus.

Also, you might want to check other devices that the signal may go through on it's way to the TV like cable boxes and DVD players. Sometimes those have closed caption decoders, too.

Captioning Services Turn Off Closed Captions

How does closed caption work


Closed captioning is embedded in the television signal and becomes visible when a special decoder, either as a separate appliance or built into a television set, is used. Since 1993, television sets with screens of 13 inches or more that are sold in the United States must have built-in decoders, under the Television Decoder Circuitry Act. The captions are hidden in the line 21 data area found in the vertical blanking interval of the television signal.

No picture, but light blue screen. Can hear sound.


Make sure the video cables are securely connected and adjust the contrast/brightness. Make sure the correct video mode is selected. Make sure the incoming signal is compatible. Make sure the antenna/cable is connected correctly. Check the closed caption settings. Some TEXT modes can block the screen.

How do you remove closed captioning? I have a 4yr old 50" plasma tv. Today the captioning just popped up and I can't figure out how to get rid of it


Hi

1* Use the CAPTION button repeatedly to select Caption Off, EZ Mute, or On.
* EZ Mute shows the selected captions option (if available on program) when the TV sound is muted.
2* Press the ENTER button to save.

Caption Tips

* Not all TV broadcasts include closed caption signals.

* Sometimes TV stations broadcast four different caption signals

on the same channel. By selecting CC 1 to CC 2, you

can choose which signal you view. CC 1 is usually the signal

with the captions, while Another mode might show demonstration

or programming information.

* Your TV might not receive caption signals normally in the following
situations.
OK.

How do i turn off the subtitles on my toshiba 36hf72 tv, without the remote


The subtitles in dubbed videos VCD/DVD the process to follow are :-

The closed caption feature has two options:
• Captions—An on-screen display of the dialogue, narration, and
sound effects of TV programs and videos that are closed
captioned (usually marked as “CC” in TV listings).
• Text—An on-screen display of information not related to the
current program, such as weather or stock data (when provided
by individual stations).
To view captions or text:
1. Tune the TV to the desired program.
2. Press MENU, and then press x or • until the CUSTOM menu
appears.
3. Press z or y to highlight CC.
4. Press x or • to highlight the desired closed caption mode, as
follows:
• To view captions, highlight C1, C2, C3, or C4 (C1 displays
translation of the primary language in your area).
Note: If the program or video you selected is not closed captioned,
no captions will display on the screen.
• To view text, highlight T1, T2, T3, or T4.
Note: If text is not available in your area, a black rectangle may appear on your screen. If this happens, turn the Closed Caption feature OFF.
To turn off the Closed Caption feature:
Highlight OFF in step 4.
Note:
A closed caption signal may not display in the
following situations:
• when a videotape has been dubbed
• when the signal reception is weak
• when the signal reception is nonstandard

PS: If you do not want to set these function & their commands can be entered via the buttons on the TV set. Using the remote is much easier to operate............ sodeep

65" Mitsubishi Projection Television keeps flashing black screen


check your closed caption, long time ago there were 4 cc options. Turn it completely off, that might get rid of it.

Can't get rid of black box


You have your TV in the "Teletext" mode. Go into the TV menu and select the closed-captioning menu and turn off the text function. What you are seeing is the result of the TV's captioning circuit latching onto a false text pilot signal and then throwing up the black box on the screen.

Get closed captions on some channels, but not all, even though it is CC


RCA have choices for different methods of CC in user CC menu. Labelled T1, T2, etc. . Different selections are for different types of close caption. Tune to a signal (on your other TV) that has closed caption working.

Tune your RCA to the same signal. Change the T1,T2, etc settings until the closed caption for your signal appears.

If this doesn't work, try connecting analog video or VHF channel 3 (or other specified channel) to the TV. check CC. When TV stations, sat channels, sat receivers, cable boxes etc, convert analog video signals to HD, problems can result. Some equipment causes RCA TVs to do unexpected things with sound and closed caption.

If you use RF or video output, old analog video may look better on CH3 or video than on HD input and the CC will work more consistently. Watch HD signals on HD input, Analog signals on Video in or through the TV tuner . Many HD channels and programs are converted analog video and look poor on TV HD inputs.

Black screen


I work at at a school, and we had the same problem. Turns out, it a Closed Captioning problem.

We found the manual, and it states that "If a large black box covers 80% of your screen, the Text mode is probably set. Press 'Closed Caption' to turn it off." The "Closed Caption" button is on the remote. If you don't have the remote (as in our case), you can go to "Closed Caption" in the menu, and pick something like C4 and T4. That stopped the black box for us.
