i cannot get the cc off my tv.

Hello , my name is Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem but first i would have a few questions;

Is this tv connected to a cable box/converter,satellite receiver,digital converter etc ?

Or directly to cable/antenna ?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

cable. comcast

O.k then that would be with a cable/converter box ?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.


O.k , in that case that box would be the one that controls the CC (closed caption)


Depending on the cable box model you have , some of them have the CC function directly in the settings menu while other in what is called the "user settings" menu which is a different menu and different way to access it.


Did the captions just appeared all of sudden or you turned them on and cannot turn them off ?



Customer: replied 3 years ago.

i think i accidently pushed something. now i cant get it off.

O.k then try this ;

Turn off the cable box and press the menu button on the cable box remote, this should open a different menu with various items including "closed caption" , scroll down to it and set it to "disabled" or OFF then power on the cable box again.


Let me know how it goes.
