SOURCE: closed caption and black square

your TV do not disable close caption in composite mode. It may in component mode. Please make sure that the close caption in your TV menu is not set to "text"
Please be advice that CC :Text is the ONLY one that can give you a black box.

SOURCE: close caption

You need to turn on closed captions through the menu of your PVR. To have it on all the time, turn the box off, press menu on the front of the box, and scroll down to captions.
This should fix the problem

SOURCE: Closed Caption on Sony Bravia

Try a master reset on the TV. With the TV powered on, prss and hold down the up button on the remote (there are 4 buttons grouped together for up down left and right) and while holding down the up button, press the power button on the TV. The unit should power off and then turn back on and ask you to select a language. Let me know if this helps and be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

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.

How do I turn off closed captioning in HDMI? I've turned it off in tv mode but it still is on. It's annoying


What's the HDMI source? You need to disable the CC on the cable box or DVD player. These are only two of the possible HDMI sources that will provide the captions directly.

Without knowing the source, I can't tell you how to disable the captions. For many devices, you'll need to enter the settings. (Some cable/IPTV boxes will need a passcode to enter the settings menu.) On my IPTV box, the CC option is tucked into the Hardware Settings under Audio. On some satellite TV boxes, I found that the closed captioning had to be turned on at the primary box and that would enable secondary boxes to also show the captions. (It was an annoying feature for a family with one hard-of-hearing guest. They didn't need closed captions on the primary box. The specifics of their set-up and service meant that the secondary box couldn't display captions directly.)

Please add a comment with the HDMI source for specific information on turning off the captions that you currently see on that source device.

Can't get closed captioning to work on westinghouse 46" 4680 led tv


What is the video source? Some set-top boxes send a closed caption signal that doesn't match the TV's CC interpreter. For those devices, you need to enable the captions on the set-top box.

I know how to enable captions on one particular Dish satellite box. The steps will depend on if your TV is TV1 or TV2 connected to the box. If the TV is TV2, you need to set the box in Single mode (so both TVs are set to the same channel). This is done with the Mode button on the box itself (highlight Yes and click Select using the Dish remote when prompted to go to Single Mode). If the box is in Single Mode, you won't get a prompt but the unit will go to Dual mode. There is a small LED on the box to indicate Single or Dual mode.

Next press Menu on the remote and go to Properties (9). Click Select and then navigate to Closed Captions (6). Click Select. Go to the Closed Caption On/Off line (1) and press the left arrow and then the up/down arrow to set to the captions to On. Press the right arrow and then Select with Done highlighted. Exit the Menu by hitting Cancel repeatedly.

I hope this helps.

How to turn closed caption off?


If the cc button on your Sharp remote control isn't turning them off then the captions may be coming from your cable box. The hidden menu to access closed captioning on the cable box is usually found by turning it off and then (yes I did say turn the cable box off) then press the menu button on the front of it immediately after turning it off. Then you navigate down to captions and disable them. When you turn the cable box back on the captions should no longer be there.

This is most commonly caused by the use of a Closed Caption text box. This type of Closed Caption is not always supported by the broadcaster, and results in the appearance of a black rectangle with scrambled or no text.

This can be quickly resolved by adjusting the Closed Caption type to "CC1" or by disabling the Closed Caption feature on your television.

get in the menu and change the close caption with the Olevia remote control

This should fix you right up

WE HAVE A BLACK BOX IN THE MIDDLE OF OUR TV AND CAN'T GET IT OFF WITH THE REMOTE


Black boxes in the middle of the screen are text boxes. Text is a part of the closed captioning feature either on your television or your cable/set top box. You would press the closed captioning button on the remote repeatedly until it displays cc off or something similar. Captioning might also be active on your cable box/set top box. There is normally a hidden menu on the cable box and that is where closed captioning is. You have to turn the cable box off. Yes I did say turn the cable box off. Then press the menu button on it and then the hidden menu will pop up. Then navigate to closed captioning and choose disable.

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!
