Sharp TV does not show Closed Captioning

I have gone through all the menus related to closed captioning I can find and cannot make it appear while I am watching TV through my Cox cable box. Closed captioning does appear on the external Roku. What should I try next? I turn CC on using the cable's remote, and it is on using the TV's remote.

Depending on which type of equipment you have with Cox, the steps are shown at the above link.

Some programs do not support closed captions at all.

Its in the TV Setup. The Cable box will output the Closed Captioning on Line 20 or 21 of the Picture - this is just at the top of the TV Picture where you can't see it. The TV Menu should have a choice of closed Captioning like CC1, Teletext, etc. and one of them should be selected. After exiting the menu, you should start seeing Closed Captioning
on the tv.

CC is either active on the Cable Box or the TV, check your settings on both.

SOURCE: HDMI cable hooked up, now CLOSED CAPTIONING is stuck on!

It has got to be the box. I would try to contact Scientific Atlanta if any way possible. The TV doesn't choose what inputs it shows CC.In other words, it would show it on all Inputs if it was the TV. Good luck and Thanks

How do you turn on closed caption on apex digital flat screen tv?


not all sets have the capability, not all programmes have captions.

This tell you how to turn OFF, but just choose ON.
http://captionmax.com/resources/turn-off-captions/

and I found this

Best Answer: There are two types of closed captions; analog and digital. It's possible that you turned one off and not the other. Some sets will only allow you to access the menus for the type of signal you are watching so make sure you are tuned to the offending channel when you access the menus.

Also, you might want to check other devices that the signal may go through on it's way to the TV like cable boxes and DVD players. Sometimes those have closed caption decoders, too.

How do i turn off closed caption


If you are connected to a cable box the CC is being controlled by the remote of the box.

Usually there is a hot key on the cable box remote if not you can go into settings and under language turn CC on or off.

When someone is speaking the words also appear on screen. How do I stop this from happening?


The closed captioning is on. If the source is OTA, you can turn it off with the remote (a button marked CC, press it until it reads CC OFF) or the On-screen Display (probably Options or Tools). This also applies to some satellite or cable systems. With satellite and some cable boxes, the captions can also be controlled by the box. The remote for the box may have a CC button. Otherwise, you'll need to go through the menus to turn it off. (I know with Dish Network boxes, if the system is set to single (rather than dual) mode, both TVs will show the captions if it is enabled.

Similarly, DVDs, VCRs, and Blu-ray inputs may have their own captions and you might need to see the remote (or menus) for that device.

I hope this helps.

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.

Black menu-like box randomly appears, covering the picture


This is a problem with closed-captioning. What you are seeing is a closed captioning box with no captioning in it. Usually this is being accidentally transmitted by the cable company "head end". Just make sure your closed captioning function is completely turned off. if you are seeing it randomly, it may well be coming from your cable company. Is it just on certain channels?

No Closed Caps With HDMI Cable


The information the closed-caption decoder in the TV needs is not provided over the HDMI cable from your converter box. This means the TV's closed-captioning can't be used. But the cable box should provide closed-captioning, so check its setup menus. Contact your cable provider for more information if it's not obvious from the box setup how to turn captions on.

Closed caption problem


I had the same issue... here's what I did.  If power off your cable box, then press the menu button, there's a selection to enable or disable Closed Captioning.  This works for both HD series Motorola boxes Comcast offers, at least in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.  Hope this helps!

Closed Captioning on HD channels


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!
