Question about JVC AV-48WP30 48" Rear Projection Television
A weird problem has surfaced with my 48wp30. For some reason, the closed captioning has turned itself on, but only for the HD channels. It remains off for all other stations. I have used the televisions menu settings to ensure that closed captioning is off, but it appears to have always been so. Yet closed captioning appears, as I mentioned, on the HD channels nonetheless. I get my HD channels through a PVR supplied by our local cable company. After calling them, they said that closed captioning is not a cable function, just a television one. I must admit that I am stumped. Any ideas?
We had the exact same problem just yesterday when we bought our Sony 46" Bravia LCD. Nobody, neither Comcast Cable or Sony seemed to really know how to get rid of the closed caption at first and we did have a Motorola box - the box is the problem, not the tv. Here is step-by-step instructions that worked for us. 1. While TV is on, power DCT (Digital Cable Terminal) off 2. Press and hold "menu" button on digital terminal (the screen below will appear) 3. Using Up/Down cursors, highlight "Close Caption" 4. Using Left/Right cursors, put - Close Caption: Disabled 5. Press "ok-select" 6. When done, press "power" to exit menu 7. Press "power" again to turn DCT on If you go through these steps slowly, you should have a caption-free screen!

Is this a motorola box? If so, turn box off (leave tv on) press menu button, the CC options are in this menu, just turn box on or press menu again when done. Hope this helps, if not what type of box, check your menu/settings on your box, most will handle converting the digital captions.

Tips for a great answer:
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
Usually answered in minutes!
