How to get words of dialogue off this TV

To get words of dialogue off a TV, you have a few options:
  1. Check the TV settings: Some televisions have built-in closed captioning options that allow you to display the dialogue as text on the screen. Look for the "CC" or "Caption" button on your TV remote control. Pressing this button should cycle through different captioning options, including turning it off, enabling standard captions, or enabling captions specifically for dialogue.
  2. Use the TV menu: Access your TV's menu settings by pressing the "Menu" button on your remote control. Navigate to the "Settings" or "Preferences" section and look for the "Caption" or "Subtitles" settings. You may find options to enable or disable captions, adjust caption styles, or choose captioning presets. Explore these settings to see if there's an option to display dialogue as text.
  3. External Closed Captioning Device: If your TV doesn't have built-in closed captioning features or if you prefer more advanced captioning options, you can consider using an external closed captioning device. These devices connect to your TV and provide enhanced closed captioning functionality, including the ability to customize the display of dialogue. Search online or consult with an electronics retailer for external closed captioning devices compatible with your TV.
  4. Streaming Services: If you're watching content from a streaming service, such as Netflix or Amazon Prime Video, they often have their own closed captioning options. Look for the closed captioning settings within the streaming service's interface. You can usually enable or disable captions, and in some cases, customize the captioning style or size.
Remember that the availability and functionality of closed captioning options may vary depending on your TV model, so consult your TV's user manual or contact the manufacturer's support if you need further assistance.

  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.

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

Turning on closed captioning

If you have a cable box or a satellite receiver you will set up closed captioning on it. For most cable boxes you have to turn off the power and immediately press the menu button on the front or them. Then the hidden menu appears if you've pressed the menu button on the cable box itself and not on its remote soon enough. Then you scroll down to closed captioning and enable it. Turn the cable box back on to view your channels with closed captioning.

If you have satellite tv you can press one of the colored buttons on the remote to get to a menu that will allow you to enable closed captioning.

How do I get closed captioning on a Samsung TV model TXJ2754?

Hello

Your TV displays the closed captions that are broadcast with some

television shows. These captions are usually subtitles for the hearing

impaired or language translations. All VCRs record the closed caption

signal and most pre-recorded commercial video tapes provide closed

captions. Check for the closed caption symbol in your television

schedule and on the tape's packaging: .


1 Press MENU repeatedly until you see the Setup menu. Press CH
to select "Caption."

2 Press VOL+ to open the Closed Caption menu.

3 Press VOL + to turn closed captioning on.

Misspellings and odd characters can occur in captioning. Also, there may be a

captioning delay after changing channels. Neither situation is a TV malfunction.


4 Press CH to highlight "Mode." Press - VOL or VOL + to choose


"Capt." (captions) or "Text." In caption mode, captions appear and

cover a small portion of the picture. In text mode, information unrelated

to the program, such as news reports, are displayed and
often cover a large portion of the screen.

5 If you wish, use CH , CH , or VOL + to change the captioning

channel or field. Then, press DISPLAY to return to normal viewing.

 Different channels and fields display different information, such as additional
languages or supplemental information

WE HAVE A BLACK BOX IN THE MIDDLE OF OUR TV AND CAN'T GET IT OFF WITH THE REMOTE

Black boxes in the middle of the screen are text boxes. Text is a part of the closed captioning feature either on your television or your cable/set top box. You would press the closed captioning button on the remote repeatedly until it displays cc off or something similar. Captioning might also be active on your cable box/set top box. There is normally a hidden menu on the cable box and that is where closed captioning is. You have to turn the cable box off. Yes I did say turn the cable box off. Then press the menu button on it and then the hidden menu will pop up. Then navigate to closed captioning and choose disable.

No signal from coax input on 32" lcd

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Due to two things that will cause the No Signal message to come up are – no data available for closed captioning and a weak signal input. Your TV is in the Closed Captioning Mode. To turn off simply bring up the on screen menu and scroll down to the part that says closed captioning and turn this function off! With the closed captioning block displayed and the program being viewed is not sending out closed captioning signals the TV will display, No Signal!

If this doesn’t resolve your issue then the problem may be with the processor failing and it is causing a random read of the EPROM to display the No Signal message.

I’ll suggest you to run the HDMI from the PVR (personal video recorder) directly to the TV (mute the TV), and then run the optical audio from the PVR directly into the receiver's optical in. The closed captioning is something that is addressed in analog broadcasts, but not necessarily digital broadcasts.

Try using Component cables if this doesn’t make a difference. After using components cables your issue will be resolved.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Cannot Stop Closed Captioning Feature

you might want to make sure it's the tv's close captioning your watching and not your cable or sattelite box's closed captioning, either way you might have to get into the menu of your box, not the tv to turn it off.

Toshiba 62hx94 cant shut off closed caption have comcast cable How do I turn off closed caption on my TV. It suddenly turned on. can' turn off closed captioning 20" ws

The problem was with the Motorfolla Comcast cable box not my T.V. . I turned off my Comcast cable box, pressed menu on the remote to the cable box. This made a 16:9 ratio appear on the cable box's LED read out, and a bluish screen appear on my television. One of the options on my television was to turn on and off closed captioning. Therfore, I turned off closed captioning and the problem was solved.
