Allow me to try again with a simple question. When you go to the main menu, can you access the CC () setting, or is it grayed out? Mine is grayed out.
The instruction manual shows several adjustments for the Closed Caption feature, but no info on how to activate it.
The same thing is true of the Backlight control---grayed out---UNLESS you know to defeat the Ambient Light Sensor. The instruction manual is clueless!
The manual also states that virtually all the picture controls (color, contrast, etc.) only work in Custom mode! This is untrue! One can only speculate that something got lost in translation.
OK let me see if I can help you a bit.
To be able to adjust the back light you have to turn off the Ambient Light Sensor then your able to adjust it mine is set to 50.
To turn it off go to the menu then picture go down to more click on advanced picture and it's on the very bottom.
Closed Caption should not be grayed out unless it's not available for that program.
If you go to the CC menu you have three choices.
analog Closed Caption,digital Closed Caption, and digital CC style.
you should be able to turn on either the analog Closed Caption,digital Closed Caption depending on what type of cable you have analog digital.
I have know idea what the difference is between cc1,cc2,cc3, and cc4.
Your going to have to just play with that and see what works.
I hope I have been some Help.
My problem is this I have analog cable and of course the picture is not that great.
When I watch any show that has a dark scene on it the blacks are very bad and they get worse if you turn on the dynamic contrast so I leave that off and the backs are not too black.
Now here is where it gets strange for me If I put a DVD in Blacks are great the picture is great I put my cable back on picture is not that good and the blacks are back.
Is this because of the "analog cable"?
I'm going to guess that it is because when I play a DVD it's sending the tv a Digital signal.
So I think if I get "Digital cable" not "HD Digital cable" I should have a great picture and the backs should be as good as I see them on my DVDs right?
