What is the source of your TV signal: Cable? Dish Networks? DirectTV? Antenna?
Many times the Cable/Dish Networks/DirectTV controller also has an option for closed captioning. Please verify that a controller is not setup to deliver the CC data.
Also, try setting the TV CC using 'C1' or 'T1' and selecting 'Enter' to accept the change; then come back and set CC to 'Off' again to see if toggling on/off helps.
Hi Meagan, my name is Cheri Torres and I work with DISH Network Internet
Response Team. I came across your post and wanted to see if I could
help. Connecting your TV to your DISH Network receiver should be
fairly easy, depending on the connections you are using. If you are
using an HDMI cable you will need to connect one side of it to your TV and the other end into your DISH receiver, as long as you have an HD
receiver. If you do not have an HD receiver you are probably going to
want to use composite cables(red, white and yellow). If you are using
either of these cables you are going to have to set your TV to an input
in order to receive the DISH picture. You can select an input by finding
a button on the TV remote or the TV itself that is listed as input,
source, AUX, mode or video. You will need to cycle through each one
until you find the DISH picture on one of them. Once you have the
picture you will need to press SAT on your DISH remote and everything
should be working fine from there. I hope this information is useful and
if you have further questions feel free to ask!
To watch Dish Network in your room there a couple of different ways to do it. Unless that cable coming out of your wall is connected to a Dishnetwork reciever its useless.Now if the reciever in your living room is a dual tuner dvr than you can run a cable from one of the two outputs to your bedroom. In this scenario you can watch different channels at the same time. If it isnt a dual tuner then you can actually put a splitter on the cable coming out of the box to the tv(has to be on cable coming out of the reciever) and run it to your bedroom. In this scenario both tvs will show the same channel.In both cases you need a UHF remote(dual tuner DVRs come with one UHF and one infrared) that will allow you to change channels while in your bedroom. If you want HD programing on both tvs you will need to contact Dish Network to get a second reciever. its $7 more a month for a second reciever.
Depending on how the satellite receiver is wired to the Sharp TV. I suppose your best try would be to select the input source on the Sharp, something like AV1 or Video (1) not channels. Channel selection would be done on the remote of the satellite receiver.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
Turned out to be a problem with my dish receiver. Found out by attaching a separate DVD unit to the TV, and it didn't flash. I then realized everything ran through the dish receiver. Called them, reset ( by unplugging for 90 seconds) and all was well.
