TV loses caption display infrequently. Will this get worse?

albert_135May 6, 2009

My 2006 [bleep] brand TV loses the caption display infrequently, perhaps twice a year.

The programs are from Dish. My other TV, $77, WalMart TV, always has the captions.

It happens on both live and DVR programs.

It still shows subtitles of movies played on DVD player.

Unplugging it for a few minutes don't effect return of captions.

Turning it off overnight does effect return of captions.

As noted this only happens about twice a year. If it doesn't get worse I can live with it for decades. If this is the sort of thing that gets worse with time then it could become a problem as I need captions.

Would you conjecture this might get worse?

Please stop with the (bleep).

It is OK to tell us what brand of TV you are asking about.

When I used [bleep] I was being sardonic.

So many persons have had problems with this brand of TV the name has become an expletive.

Are you activating the CC with your TV or the Dish receiver?
If it's the TV, turn the CC off, and try the Dish receiver's CC.
I don't have any experience with Dish but my Directv receivers have CC capabilities.
