Re: CC will not turn on....
There are usually several versions of the closed captioning. Cycle through them to see which ones work. Turn one set on...wait a few minutes...if that does not bring up the captioning during normal shows (not commercials)...try the next set.

I have found that Closed Caption in a function of your television service and not of the TV itself. We have had cable TV and used the menu function on the cable remote to find CC and select 'off'; we now have DirectTV cable TV and use the remote for the receiver to select CC and 'off' on the drop down menu of CC. We get to CC by pressing 'info' on the remote and a list of options appears at the top of the screen, one of which is "CC". Pressing the right arrow key moves the cursor and when on "CC" pressing "SELECT" creates a drop down list; "OFF" is the option to turn off Closed Captions.
Different types TV service (over the air with antenna will likely require changing the TV mode to CC off on none), but if you use cable (Time Warner, Charter, ATT Uverse, etc.) or satellite (Dish Network or DirectTV) then the tuner or receiver will likely have your CC option.
On newer Sony TVs you press the CC button to cycle through the available settings for Closed Captions (CC): On, Off, and On when
However, it looks like your factory remote control lacks a CC button and your TV menu appears to have a simple Off/On option for what Sony calls Caption Vision. If that is the case then you would need to manually turn on Caption Vision when you mute the television. That hardly seems like the solution you're after.
If you had an aftermarket remote control that could record macros you might be able to program it so that when you press the mute button the TV would mute and also turn on Closed Captioning. This would require the proper remote control and some expertise.
What is the TV source? For some sources (set top box), you may need to turn on the captions using the menus of the box.
Assuming you are using a source that gives captions that the TV can interpret, if you have the Proscan 26LA30Q remote, press the CC button to toggle through the caption options. Another route is to press Menu (either on the remote or the buttons on the side of the TV) then select the Feature submenu with the left/right arrows. Press Enter (menu when you use the buttons on the TV) then navigate to the Digital Closed Captions option. Here you can set the captions to on and adjust the size, style and color of the captions when they appear on-screen.
If you are using a universal remote, try the CC button. If it doesn't work, try another code for the Proscan TV on the remote. There are some codes that may not control all of the functions of the TV with the remote.
There are several possibilities here so you will need to work with me to resolve this problem. In order for Closed Captioning (CC) to work, you need to make sure the CC settings are correct on the TV, and then make sure they CC is switched on. In addition, if you are using a cable or satellite receiver box, CC also needs to be switched on for these "boxes".
It's easiest to start with the TV. Please make sure you have done the following:
1. Check the Closed Caption settings are as follows from the TV on-screen menu as follows:
a) Press the "MENU" button on the DYNEX remote b) Press the RIGHT arrow twice to highlight the "SETUP" menu c) Press the DOWN arrow once to open the "SETUP" menu d) Press the DOWN arrow twice to highlight "CLOSED CAPTION" e) Press the RIGHT arrow or the "ENTER" button once to open the CLOSED CAPTION MENU f) Make sure the Closed Caption option "CC MODE" is set to "ON". This can be changed using the UP/DOWN arrow keys to highlight "CC MODE" and using the LEFT/RIGHT arrows to switch between off and on.
The "Basic Selection" and "Advanced Selection" settings are for analogue and digital closed-captions respectively. In addition, the "Options" sub-menu can be used to change the size and style of the digital closed captions (Advanced Selection). All three of these options should eventually be set according to your personal preferences, but for the purposes of making sure it is working, I suggest you set them as follows:
Basic Selection = CC1
Advanced Selection = Service 1
These options are the basic settings which will display only the spoken dialogue of the TV program.
g) Press "EXIT" on the remote to close the menu and return to viewing mode.
2. Press the "CCD" button on your Dynex remote control. This can be found in the bottom right-hand corner of the remote. Each press of the "CCD" button will cycle the closed captions between ON and OFF. (CCD means Closed Caption Display)
3. Check the Closed Captions are displayed and then adjust the Basic and Advanced Selection options until the type and appearance of the closed captions are how you like them.
If you have done the above and still cannot get it to work, please let me know whether you are using a cable or satellite receiver and the brand/model number. I will then be able to assist you further.
There should be a key on the remote labeled "cc." If you press this until the message "cc off" or a similar message appears, it should turn off the closed captioning. If you don't have the remote, or if it doesn't have the "cc" key, there should be an option under the tv menu to turn off the cc.
Turning On Captions
Pressing the CC button displays caption options:
? CC on: Displays captions.
? CC off: Turns off captions.
? CC mute: Displays captions when the Mute
button is pressed.
To assign your preferences for captions, see “Using the
Closed Caption Menu” on page 33.
CC (Closed Caption) Press the down button to highlight the CC (Closed Caption) selection. Press the > button. A separate menu will appear with the following CC settings CC When watching regular analog (NTSC) TV, the CC feature is available in the Setup menu. Press the down button to highlight the CC selection. Press the > button to select CC1, CC2, CC3 or CC4. Once the adjustments are completed press the LAST button repeatedly to exit the OSD completely. Closed Caption for regular TV is usually CC1 or CC2.
