I'm trying to get rid of the closed caption box and 2 ttys...

Closed caption box works great and also in good condition...

2 ttys are not working anymore, I tried to get them repaired but they said they unable to fix it, if anyone would want to use it for parts or whatever that is fine....

All of them are free, if you are interesting, please pm me :)

Angel, have you thought of contacting a local assisted living facility to see if there is any hard of hearing elderly there who could benefit from a CC box?

I am assistant director of an assisted living facility and many seniors are too poor to get a CC box or TTY on their own. Many hard of hearing elderly wont admit that they cant understand TV or turn volume up TOO high.

So maybe you look around in your area ? :)

That sounds like a good idea. Nowadays, people don't care much for close-captioning devices since almost all televisions include it. Also, many people use online relay and emails... so TTYs have slowly faded from sight.

Maybe it is best to donate it to a deaf museum? Afterall, cc boxes are out of date. I doubt I know anyone who owns television that was made before the 90s.

For Real? no cc on the 60 inches tv? Cuz, I have a 55 inches and it does have closed caption I thought all tv now made with closed caption maybe you need to recheck it again to make sure.;)

:smash: *going once....* *going twice....* ahhhh...shucks, it's still sitting on the shelf in the closet...do I hear a 'bid'??? :smoking:

Hmmm...sounds good to 'donate' it to a nursing home or to someone who can't afford it that could greatly benefit it.... :D

Free Closed Caption Box

If this is still available, we could sure use it. My wife is deaf and we have an undercounter unit that does not have the chip for captioning.

Thanks.
