Spanish closed captioning stuck on Tobisha 46RV530U
I just purchased a Tobisha 46RV530U HD LCD television. When I turn the chanel to HBO HD, closed captioning pops up in spanish. I've tried everything including turning off the closed captioning for the entire TV. This only happens on HBO HD chanel. I cannot get them to turn off. Anyone have advice as to how to fix this? Thanks!

Check both the set and a box if used are not having SAP engaged, secondary audio program==meant to play channel in spanish etc if available===it will blank the sound when no foreign language is present from the channel.
You have the closed captioning turned on and it's set to "text" mode. On channels where closed captioning is being broadcast the set is clearing the screen for the text which isn't there. That's why you don't see it all the time or on every channel. Just use the remote or front panel buttons to go to the caption settings and turn it off.
The closed captioning has to be sent in another language, and your set will follow it. Call the TV station to find out where they are getting the captioning from, or maybe they can get you directly in touch with the captioning people.
The closed captioning is sent as one of the many information packets during the vertical blanking interval. In the NTSC system, it is sent on line 21 in both the even and odd fields. There are usualy 2 closed captioning selections for text. These are the CC1 and CC2. They are decoded according to their address code.
On the TV's user menu (press "menu" button) look for "Captioning" or "Closed Caption" choice. If not immediately in view look in "set up" or "Audio"...it should be in the menu. Find it and then turn it off.
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.
