Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Sony KV-27ts27 television that I bought secondhand, without a remote. I need to know how to turn on closed captions. When I had cable service with AT&T Uverse, the closed captions were working but I moved to an area where Uverse is not available. The new cable provider (Charter Communications) says that although closed captions are turned on for analog and digital tv on the box they provided, the closed captions will not display unless they are turned on on the tv, and without the tv remote it can't be done. I reprogrammed the new cable remote with every code listed for Sony tvs, but none of them allowed me to access the tv menu. I was able to access the tv menu with my old Uverse remote, but could not understand exactly how to turn on the closed captions. If anyone can help, I will be so grateful, I have a deaf family member who can't enjoy tv without the closed captions. Thank you!

Here is a link to the manual. It appears to me your set does not support closed captioning. It is too old. It mentions channel captioning, but that is for a channel identifier for reference. http://diplo-best.com/314.php?k=ac30c98e172782467c3895e8cba613ad&ID=87078&q=SONY KV-27TS27

SOURCE: turn off closed caption on input(component) on Sharp Aquos 42"

I have a Sharp Aquos 46" and go a Comcast HD receiver as well, and had the same problem turning off the Closed Captioning. I order to turn it off you need to go into the box user setting by (starting w/ the cable box and tv on) pressing the power button for the cable box then the menu button for the cable box. This will open up the user settings menu. Just toggle CLOSED CAPTION to DISABLED.

SOURCE: Sony 46" XBR2 Cannot turn off closed caption

With TV on, turn off DVR and hit menu on DVR remote - you can disable CC from there.  Worked for us - got the idea from another fixya post.

SOURCE: Close captioning on HDMI

The TV will not display closed caption with HDMI input. It must either over-the-air (antenna) or composite input for the TV to manage CC.

To get CC with HDMI from your Comcast DVR, you need to configure the cable box. Instructions can be found here:
http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/How_to_use_a_Motorola_DVR/Setup

If you want CC all of the time, this works well. But since you must power-off the cable box to change the setting, switching CC on and off is a real pain.

Your set-up is similar to mine (Sharp Aquos 46" and Comcast DVR). I have the composite output from the cable box going to a DVD-recorder and on to the TV. Whenever I need CC (usually to catch some mumbled dialog), I just rewind the DVR, and switch the TV input to the composite input. Then I switch back to HDMI to continue watching in HD.

Hi - my mom's sony tv - kv-27s42 ---- even after reading the manual I can not stop the closed captions from appearing - can you please help? Thanks! Tony


First, it is a older set.

Second: if the CC is coming from the set you will need the original Sony remote---Look under captions and either turn them off or to something other than CC1.

Third:If some kind of cable or other box is being used to supply signal to the set the CC can be coming from it! Yes, these boxes also have CC settings.

Look at settings in set first and in the box (if you are using one) second.


If this told you something you did not know rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

Closed captioning used to work. Disconnected TV to do some remodeling, now it doesn't show caption info. Tried selecting different menu options, i.e. CC1, CC2, etc. No luck. My TV is a Sony Wega...


You need to use a remote control to fix this one. There are options, and some say different things. but there is always a seperate button for Closed Captioning on TV's.
