How to Turn on Closed Captioning with Comcast
Closed captioning is a service that helps the hard of hearing by printing the words being spoken on the television screen. Activating this feature with Comcast digital cable can be done in a few minutes with a few simple steps to help you enjoy your favorite programs even without the audio.
Turn on the television and Comcast digital cable receiver.
Press "Power" and "Menu" in quick succession on the cable box or with the remote. This should bring up a "User Settings" menu.
Use the arrow keys to move down to "Closed Captioning" and press the "OK/Select" button.
Use the arrow keys again to turn closed captioning to "on," then press the "OK/Select" button.
Press the "Menu" button to save your settings.
Tips & Warnings
- Different cable connections (HDMI, component video) or high-definition channels may not always display closed captioning. Contact Comcast customer and technical support for more information on fixing this problem.
