Close captioning on USA network

My close captioning works fine on all channels, DVD's, everything, EXCEPT on USA it is so bad it cannot be deciphered. Is there something special about USA close captioning? Is there anything I can do, I watch USA so much.

You are using cable or satellite, contact them for a resolution. Otherwise the TV is ok and nothing you can do on your end of things. They are probably stripping the CC data somehow on USA network.

I do not think there is an issue with the TV. I do not think that the station themselves broadcast the Closed Captioning.

How do you shut off the closed caption feature?


I do not know this dvd player, but on most anything with closed caption, you hit the cc button on the remote until you come to '0' or 'off'. As CC has about 6 channels it can use, but really only channel '1' is used. So you might have to cycle through the CC channels until closed caption disappears. Hope this helps. You might also have a setup menu on this DVD where you can control the CC.
Just cycle though it till you get to '0' or off, exit the setup menu.

Captions only on certain channels?


Closed captioning isn't broadcast on every channel and program, so the information may not be present. Since captions are displayed on other channels, you know the set is working properly. If you are on a cable system you can try asking their customer service people if they know anything. But the TV is fine.

Close captioning


Hi ckay31,

If your remote is not allowing you to navigate through the menus, you may need to replace the batteries.

If this does not work, in the meantime you should be able to navigate the menus using the menu button on the TV. The Closed Captioning option should display under Channel Settings.

If you are still unable to get your remote to function properly, I recommend you contact Westinghouse Customer Service at (866) 287-5555. You may also view your product's manual at http://www.westinghousedigital.com/pdf/15_User_Manual.pdf

Thank you,
Jason,

closed caption depends on your tv stations. If a tv station does not support providng closed captions, then it will not really show closed captions. Closed captions depends really on the feature of a tv station

Throw the damn thing away. And don't even try looking on the internet for the solution. Every link will take you to a sales pitch. Very frustrating.
