To show the closed caption on your TV screen, broadcast
signal must contain the closed caption data.
Not all TV programs and commercials have the closed
caption or all types of the closed caption.
Captions and texts may not match the TV voice exactly.
Changing channels may delay the closed caption for a few
Adjusting or muting the volume may delay the closed
caption for a few seconds.
Abbreviations, symbols and other grammatical shortcuts
may be used in order to keep pace with the on-screen
action. This is not a problem with the unit.
The caption or text characters will not be displayed while
the main menu or functions display is shown.
If a black box appears on the TV screen, this means that
the closed caption is set to the text mode. To clear the box,
select “CAPTION 1”, “CAPTION 2” or “OFF”.
If the unit receives poor quality television signals, the
captions may contain errors, or there might be no captions
at all. Some possible causes of poor quality signals are:
- Automobile ignition noise
- Electric motor noise
- Weak signal reception
- Multiplex signal reception (ghosts or screen flutter)
The unit retains the closed caption setting if the power fails.
When the unit receives a special effects playback signal
(I.e.,Search, Slow and Still) from a VCR’s video output
channel (CH3 or CH4), the unit may not display the correct
caption or text.
