Question about Samsung LN-T4061F 40 in. LCD HDTV

3 Answers

Samsung LN-T4061F We cannot get the closed captioning to work on the TV. It works fine on the HD cable channels or HD movies, but does not work on regular TV or movies that are not HD. We can set up closed captioning through our cable box but the Samsung set up has the closed captioning option grayed out and you cannot select. I wear hearing aids so this is really going to be a problem for me. Thanks for any help you can provide

    The Samsung doesn't let us select the closed caption heading - it is grayed out and not one of the choices we are allowed to make. Samsung told us we had to set up the cc through our cable box, which we did, but we don't get the cc on anything that isn't HD.

    Nope, tried that too. We have Comcast. Comcast's cc works, but if the station of movie is not HD, the cc does not work.

  • jkinseattle Apr 23, 2008

    The Samsung website said we had to set up the closed captioning through our cable, not through the television. The closed captioning option cannot be highlighted on the Samsung. The cc works only on HD channels or movies. The cc does not work on anything that is not HD.

    That does not work either. I finally got some answers from the Hearing Store inSeattle. The new TVs do not pick up closed captioning that comes across internet i.e. digital because FCC does not require internet to have closed captioning. Bascially the cc is stripped when it comes across the lines. He said it is the nature of the new TVs and hopefully will be remedied by 2010. This is not a good thing for hearing impaired people.

    We have watched a 3D movie and when I wanted to change the 3D settings, the problem occurred. The TV is only 5 days old.

To view the captions, all you have to do is turn on the decoder by following these simple steps:

  1. Access your TV menu screen using your remote or by pressing a button on the face of the TV.
  2. Select the closed captions heading. Several different caption options may appear.
  3. Select the "CC1" option.
  4. Exit the menu.
Closed captions should appear within approximately one minute of adjusting this setting. If they do not, review this portion of your television's operating manual or contact the manufacturer of the television set.

Public Television stations do not transmit Closed captioning

First try disconnecting the Cable box and see if you can set it then.

Also, it may be the type of cable, the CC might not work with component

Please let me know if this works or if you need further options


Thank you for using Fixya and Good Luck

    that is for cable, for anything not running through the cable box, you should be able to set it up right on the tv, try detaching the cable box and see if you can set the CC on the tv please

    I'm sorry to hear that, I did not know that, Is there anything else I can do for you?

    If I were you I would definitely write some letters about the cc problem to everyone that you can.

Hi there

It may be that the captioning is just not available with the other transmission formats. Sorry.

    To qualify my statement further:)



    If the caption menu item is not highlightable, this is an indication that the signal has not been encoded with the captioning information, and thus not available..

Connecting HD cable box to DVR too HDTV


When I hooked up my HD cable box using an HDMI cable, I had to go into the cable screen menus and select HDMI output. You may have to do something similar when using an S-video cable. Your DVD recorder doesn't seem to have an HDMI input, so you'll have to use the S-video or (worst case) composite video (red, white, yellow cords). Your cable box may also be scrambling the signal so that you can't record. That may be why you can record by bypassing the cable box.

Picture issues


Greetings caesar975,

Unfortunately if you chose to view the non HD channels in wide screen format, you are going to have the top and bottom of the screen cut off. Eventually this will not be a problem when everything goes to digital. However presently non HD channels are presented in 3:2 ratio where as HD is 16:9, So your choice really is to view them with the lines on either side for now.

I do not have an answer for the white flickering lines.

To get the BEST picture out of your 1080p unit I highly recommend using HDMI cables to hook it up.

I hope some of this helps.

Sincerely,

Dorothy

Turn off closed caption on input(component) on Sharp Aquos 42"


I have a Sharp Aquos 46" and go a Comcast HD receiver as well, and had the same problem turning off the Closed Captioning. I order to turn it off you need to go into the box user setting by (starting w/ the cable box and tv on) pressing the power button for the cable box then the menu button for the cable box. This will open up the user settings menu. Just toggle CLOSED CAPTION to DISABLED.

Closed caption and black square


your TV do not disable close caption in composite mode. It may in component mode. Please make sure that the close caption in your TV menu is not set to "text"
Please be advice that CC :Text is the ONLY one that can give you a black box.

Closed Caption


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
