Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

New Toshiba 37" flat screen always displays Closed Captions. Feature is turned off with TV remote, feature not available on Cable remote. Toshiba says it is Cable company problem, Mediacom cable can find nothing wrong. Spent an hour on the phone with Mediacom, tried everything they could think of. Am getting HDTV through an RCA DVR box that isn't new. Got it from the cable company and it was used before, how long they couldn't say. Could the problem be there? There is a long waiting list for getting a new HDTV cable box. That may still be my only option. The cable to connect the TV to the DVR is new from Radio Shack, a high speed HDMI cable.

I've had this problem for a bit, it seems that there are two ways to turn off the closed captions.
1:Menu--->Preferences--->CC and Digital Audio Selectors. This displays the menu on the bottom of the screen with the choices of Closed Caption formats and digital audio. This is not the correct menu to be in. This turns off the CC as long as the TV is not turned off or the input is not changed. This is a temporarily either turns the CC on or off.
The Solution:
2:Menu--->Setup--->TV Settings--->Closed Captions Settings Displays a menu in the center of the screen, with the options of Turning the Closed Captions on and off, the Analog CC Mode and Digital CC settings. You must turn the Closed Captions off in this menu or the changes to CC are temporary.
For the record:
1. I'm aware I'm 2 years late on this, but I just want others to be able to solve this issue on their Toshiba. Don't worry, my Toshiba is the same age as yours
2. I've lost faith in Tech Support ages ago. I'm sorry that they were that incompetent.
3. Its ridiculous that there are two entirely different menus to alter the closed captions. Took me forever to figure this out.
Hope this helps you and others.

I have a Sony KV-27ts27 television that I bought secondhand, without a remote. I need to know how to turn on closed captions. When I had cable service with AT&T Uverse, the closed captions were working but...


Here is a link to the manual. It appears to me your set does not support closed captioning. It is too old. It mentions channel captioning, but that is for a channel identifier for reference. http://diplo-best.com/314.php?k=ac30c98e172782467c3895e8cba613ad&ID=87078&q=SONY KV-27TS27

HOW TO CLOSE SUBTITLES ON LG 37


Keep in mind if using a box it also likely has closed captions feature.

In both set and or box in the menu find Captions--turn off or to one of the other options except TEXT---most sets use CC1 as default and some also offer captions when sound is muted or not.

Look first on remote for captions, usually someone hits the button by mistake either for the box or the set--you may have to check both units to find it.
