Closed caption always comes on when I turn on TV!

I can turn it off with the remote but it is annoying that it always comes back on when I turn the TV off and then back on, how can I stop it? Model number 27MS4504/17B. Thanks.

    The closed captioning on my tv comes on by itself. I turn it off with the remote but eventually it comes on again. Is there a way to turn CC off permanently? Thanks

    I have the same problem - tv on - cc on - I hit the cc button until it says off - but when I turn off the tv and then back on - it's back again! I hope someone comes up with an answer.

    I have had the same problem with my Philips TV since it was 13 months old. 1 month out of warranty of course! I think Philips just has a problem with their manufacturing. As I shop for my new flat screen TVs for the house I will look at any brand other than Philips. Vote with your pocketbook so they get the message and get better quality in their sets.

Suggestion, buy a new TV :o)
I have the same issue, just bought a used tv, no remote, can't turn off C/C
contacted philips for suggestions, may try to purchase a universal remote - the one directv provides doesn't have a cc or pip button either.

Had the same problem with my Phillips TV. CC was always on when I turned on the tv, even though I turned it off when I used the tv last. I finnally fixed it. Step 1: Turn the TV back on, Step 2: Turn off CC, and turn off the TV, Step 3: Unplug the TV from the wall for 3 minutes, Step 4: Plug the TV back into a surge protected power strip. Thats it! That worked for me. After I did this and turned the TV back on the CC was off.. whooo..

Is there a microprocessor/software reset procedure?


Simply disconnecting power for a period of time should reset it. I would do so over night.

The TV keeps going to the MENU on it's own...When you exit to TV it goes back to menu within 5 seconds


Hey djames1971 - did you ever get this resolved? My Philips is doing the same exact thing now; sooooo annoying. If I keep monkeying with the exit setting it eventually goes to the TV and stays there, but it doesn't fix it by any means. Next time I go to turn it on I have the same battle with it.

I have a philips 2005 tv model number 2DPT6441/37 closed caption stays on when we first turn the tv on. I can turn it off with the remote by hitting the cc button.


I'd be interested in the solution also my 20PT6245/37 (also a 2005) recently started doing this too. There must be some reset somewhere unless something fried. I use a universal remote, so noe I had to get the Factory remote back out, more of an annoyance now.

They don't build them like they used to ... Zenith Space Command SA 1923W (1984 Model) still going strong with a beautiful picture! Looks & works like new.

On Screen Clock Display


Without the original remote or a universal remote that does not have a display button, try unplugging the television for at least 2 minutes and plug the tv back in. This should reset the tv display. If the universal remote has a display button, depress the display button until you get the desired display results.

Rca 52 in rear projection... start up menu always on


The setup menu will repeat until it is completed and/or something is hooked up.

On my TV it kept reoccurring until I connected up the wire from the roof antenna, even though I had cable already installed.

Check your manual for setup instructions or if you do not have one, Google the make, model number and "owners manual" to see one online.

Hope this helps. :)
