closed captioning

I have a Sony Trintron TV and anm unable to activate Closed Captioning. I have gone to the menu feature, and tried CC 1,2,3,4, and the four text features, no luck. What is Closed Captioning Mute? One of the articles posted here said to be sure that is off. Where do I find it on my menu?
Thanks

You need to check the Closed

You need to check the Closed Caption area of the TV's menu to see if CC on Mute is off. CC on Mute means that Closed Captions are only engaged if the TV is on Mute. If you provide the model of the TV, I can see what your menu looks like.

CC1 is the most common one, so set the TV for that. It can sometimes take 20 to 30 seconds for captions to appear.

What source device are you using? Do you have a cable or sat box?

Hi! I am using Dish TV, and

Hi! I am using Dish TV, and the tv set itself is a Sony Trintron, it is about 4 years old. I don't see any other identifying numbers on the front and I'm unable to see the back. on the front of the set there are buttons for Setup, tv/video,vol+, channel+,Power, standby/timer.
The menu doesn't list a Closed Captioning Mute feature.
That's the best I can do.
Sorry

Since you have a satellite

Since you have a satellite box, you may need to engage closed captions on the sat receiver, not the TV. Do you know the model of your sat box?

Negative, DVB is a logo, not

Negative, DVB is a logo, not the model number. The model number is on the back of the box. It will be something like 2700, 4000, etc.

thanks for the help. I do appreciate it. Unfortunately I am unable to see the back of the box.
I am going to try to find something on the menu of my dish. I will look for 'closed captioning mute'.
Thanks Again

Don't worry about the CC mute

Don't worry about the CC mute thing, just look for anything that looks like an option to turn on CC in your Dish box.
