Close caption turns on and off by itself problem

The close caption will turn on and off by itself. I don't know why, but I will go in to the TV menu and shut it off and after a little while it will be back on. Very frustrating

    We have a Philips Magnavox N0307UD and this just started happening. I do not see where to turn off the closed captioning through the onscreen menu, but the captioning goes off and off seemingly by itself. Immediately after pressing 'Menu' or 'Status' on the remote (regardless of whether any settings are changed), the captioning is gone, but then returns in several seconds.

Check the cable box to make sure the captions aren't truned on in the cable box.

If not -if it really is the Magnavox caption service- then -

This is assuming you have the original remote:
1 Press MENU to show the on-screen
menu.
2 Press VOL+ or VOL- until SET is highlighted.
3 Press CH+ or CH- repeatedly to
highlight CLOSED CAPTION.
4 Press VOL+ or VOL-
to display the
CLOSED CAPTION menu.
5 Press CH+ or CH- to select the
closed caption you want (OFF, CC-1,
CC-2, or CC-MUTE).
CC-MUTE sets
the TV to show closed captions when
you press MUTE. The TV volume will be
disabled until you press MUTE again to
restore the sound.
6 Press VOL+ or VOL-
to confirm your
selection.
7 Press TV/AV/EXIT to remove the
menu.

Turning on closed captioning


If you have a cable box or a satellite receiver you will set up closed captioning on it. For most cable boxes you have to turn off the power and immediately press the menu button on the front or them. Then the hidden menu appears if you've pressed the menu button on the cable box itself and not on its remote soon enough. Then you scroll down to closed captioning and enable it. Turn the cable box back on to view your channels with closed captioning.

If you have satellite tv you can press one of the colored buttons on the remote to get to a menu that will allow you to enable closed captioning.

Is there a way to turn off closed caption on this older sanyo tv ds27580


Don't know on the Sanyo, but most TVs let you turn off the CC via the remote, either by a CC listing on the remote itself, or by going to the menu (menu button) which shows on the TV screen, then working your way through the menu to the closed captioning. That should let you turn it on or off.
Good luck.

Unable to remove the closed caption through the remote control (Haier) 42 inch flat screen tv. Went through the function and selected 'No' to Closed Caption, but it does not remove it. Thanks, Sandy


I dont know what model you have i see two on there website. i read manual for one of the 42 inch lcd tvs and i do see where you confirmed you said off to closed caption mode am i correct? Ok try this turn the closed caption on and exit menu. now shut off tv and turn it back on. now go into menu and turn closed caption mode to off now and exit menu and see if that helps. ok i hope this helps ....oh i forgot to mention make sure that you didnt enable the closed captioning on your cable box remote. Just might want to check with that. It might not be your tv at all it could be the cable boxes closed captioning service. I hope some of this helps if not see if there is a factory reset in the menu.

The TV slowly, all by itself, ran closed caption on the major stations.
Unable to turn off through the menu as that option was greyed out.
Now all channels have this unwanted closed caption.

Any similar problems and ideas.

I have the JVC I Art 46" TV. The Close Caption was turn on accidentally by my grandson. After lots of searching for the original remote. I called JVC Customer Support. He told me to change the Close Caption settings to CC2 and T1. That fixed the CC without having the original remote.
