How to closed caption on mute vizio

On all of my old tvs (not HD), i have been able to automatically enable closed captions when tv was muted. i cannot seem to figure out how to do that on my new vizio. Does this tv not do that at all? am i missing something? my tv did NOT come with a remote in it, so maybe it is some function on vizio remote?

Hello -

The remote control for your Vizio TV probably has a Closed Caption button. Is there a button with CC printed on it? If so, that is most likely the button to press for Closed Captioning.

SOURCE: how do I turn off captions on vizio tv with remote?

With the television on and in tv mode, press the CC button on the remote. It's the button with a square on it. That should get you into the closed captioning menu.

You could also go into the main setup menu and find it there. For more information, here's a link to your user manual for the Vizio L32.

SOURCE: I can not get closed captioning on my vizio VO42L

If you are using a HD cable box then this would be setup in the cable box itself.

Example:
With a Motorola Cable box, you would turn it off and press the menu button (with the receiver off and TV on). This will bring up a menu that will allow you to adjust your digital closed caption settings.

If you do not have a Motorola cable box that I would refer to the manual or call the cable company.

How do i get caption only on mute


On newer Sony TVs you press the CC button to cycle through the available settings for Closed Captions (CC): On, Off, and On when
Muting.

However, it looks like your factory remote control lacks a CC button and your TV menu appears to have a simple Off/On option for what Sony calls Caption Vision. If that is the case then you would need to manually turn on Caption Vision when you mute the television. That hardly seems like the solution you're after.

If you had an aftermarket remote control that could record macros you might be able to program it so that when you press the mute button the TV would mute and also turn on Closed Captioning. This would require the proper remote control and some expertise.

How do you remove closed captioning? I have a 4yr old 50" plasma tv. Today the captioning just popped up and I can't figure out how to get rid of it


Hi

1* Use the CAPTION button repeatedly to select Caption Off, EZ Mute, or On.
* EZ Mute shows the selected captions option (if available on program) when the TV sound is muted.
2* Press the ENTER button to save.

Caption Tips

* Not all TV broadcasts include closed caption signals.

* Sometimes TV stations broadcast four different caption signals

on the same channel. By selecting CC 1 to CC 2, you

can choose which signal you view. CC 1 is usually the signal

with the captions, while Another mode might show demonstration

or programming information.

* Your TV might not receive caption signals normally in the following
situations.
OK.

Closed caption problems


Most sets do not automatically go CC when Mute is pressed--it's a feature on some. They are either on or off and the systems are different for old SD (white on black) and for new digital and HD (control colors, font, and size). I wouldn't want a mute indicator and CC but I do have CC on all the time--yellow on transparent. The NTSC-analog had the captions encoded on a video line (21 22 or 23?). ATSC does not have those wasted off-picture lines and sends it separately. -Ken

How do i enable the closed caption on my samsung tv/direct tv?


Correct solution WITH DIRECT TV is NOT going to SETUP MENU on your Samsung TV and enabling it, this won't work with Direct TV!! I'll walk you through it. Grab your Direct TV remote, hit "Menu", pan down to "Parental, Fav & Setup", next click "System Set-up", next click "Display", now at the top of the screen between "Preferences" and "Clock" is "Captioning", click on it, now the first box reads Captioning TURN IT FROM OFF TO ON! You now have Captioning.

Closed Captioning comes on every time i turn on the tv!


Apparently the 2002 Sharp model TV that I purchased has the closed captioning by default if the mute button is engaged. So there is no solution for my particular model, it has been built in this way. The only solution is not to use the mute button and lower the volume instead.

Close caption turns on and off by itself problem


Check the cable box to make sure the captions aren't truned on in the cable box.

If not -if it really is the Magnavox caption service- then -

This is assuming you have the original remote:
1 Press MENU to show the on-screen
menu.
2 Press VOL+ or VOL- until SET is highlighted.
3 Press CH+ or CH- repeatedly to
highlight CLOSED CAPTION.
4 Press VOL+ or VOL-
to display the
CLOSED CAPTION menu.
5 Press CH+ or CH- to select the
closed caption you want (OFF, CC-1,
CC-2, or CC-MUTE).
CC-MUTE sets
the TV to show closed captions when
you press MUTE. The TV volume will be
disabled until you press MUTE again to
restore the sound.
6 Press VOL+ or VOL-
to confirm your
selection.
7 Press TV/AV/EXIT to remove the
menu.
