Closed Captioning on LG 50 DM

I read your answer to the CC problem on FixYa but my menu on my LG TV remote does not have an "Option" selection or any sort of "CC" selection. My sister and her kids were at the house while we were away and could not figure out the TV remote (it is complicated). They somehow succeeded in getting the CC on and now I cannot get it off. I have called LG AND Comcast's customer support. I have even had TV techs look and no one can find a solution for me. Any ideas? Thanks, Mike Rees

I have the same problem with the closed captions... i believe to turn off the captions you have to use the remote. press the CC button repeatedly until closed captioning turns off. in my case i lost my remote so i am unable to use the method to solve the issue. Can someone please confirm that this works. so i can buy a replacement remote. Thx

How can I turn off CC on my SONY 52XBR. I used the Remote control settings and selected off on the cc display, but the cc never turns off. I also used the menu button on the side of the T.V to select

If Closed Captioning is being displayed even though the CC option in the TV menu is set to Off , then it is being produced by another device, such as a cable or satellite set-top box. To remove the Closed Captioning from the TV screen, it must be disabled on the device that is decoding the Closed Captioned signal.
NOTE: Some set-top boxes may automatically display Closed Captioning on the TV screen when the set-top box sound is muted. If this is the case, turn off the Mute function of the set-top box

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

How do I get closed captioning to work on DIsh?

It all depends on the DISH system and the TV. For the most part the CC signal is carried on the cable from the box to the TV. Not sure how you have the DISH connected to the TV, but lets assume its HDMI. Connected this way you should be able to go into the TV settings (use the remote that came with the TV, NOT the dish remote) and go into the settings or menu. From there look for audio. In the audio menu is a section for CC. You should be able to turn it on from there. Or just check on the LG remote. They sometimes have a CC button that you simply push to turn it on. Hope this helps

How to get rid of closed captioning

If pressing the cc button on the Sharp remote does not turn off the closed captioning then the closed captioning is most likely coming from the cable box or whatever you have connected to this television. You can go into the cable box menu by pressing the menu button on the front when it is turned off. That's right turn off the cable box and then press menu on it to access the hidden menu that includes closed captioning. Scroll down to closed captioning and scroll over to disable. A number of other Directv receivers have the CC located on a "captioning" tab on the "display" page under setup and for dish network:
Setting Closed Captioning:
  1. Press and release the MENU button and then select "Preferences."
  2. Select "Closed Caption."
  3. Select "Caption On/Off."
  4. Select "CC is On."
  5. Select "Done."

I have a 32" LCD

you need to go to menu/settings options for your tv and there will be an option of cc (closed captioning) turn it off. if thre is a button on your remote. that says cc hit that. if you are connected via a cable box its probably due to the cable box and you need to go to menu/settings and tab thru until you find the closed captioning option

let me know if that helps

How do i remove the CC on a Hitachi P50H401?

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. Good luck! Der Strom

How to select Texting

I just got my Vizio 32" a few days ago, so this is fresh in my mind. When the tv is on and TV is selected from the top row of remote buttons, press MENU. Use the arrow keys surrounding the MENU button to select the WRENCH icon. Under this icon use the down arrow (surrounding MENU) to select CC. Use the right arrow to choose CC ON MUTE (closed captioning only when you select the MUTE button on remote) or CC where you can use the arrow key to change OFF to ON and closed captioning will be on all the time. Hope this helps!
