hi, thanks for using JA:
The panasonic TC 32 LX 24 television includes a built-in decoder that is capable of providing a text display of the audio. The program being viewed must be transmitting the Closed Caption (CC) information. You can turn on/off the CC by following these steps:

1. While watching the Tv press the MENU button on your remote.

2. Navigate to the icon that says "CC". Then click on select.

You can see these two steps to be performed in this image.
3. In CC Menu Settings, navigate to "MODE" and change it off. CC modes will disappear from the television screen.

You can see this steps on an image by clicking here.

On my unit you navigate to closed captions my going to "menu" then "settings" to "accessibility" to either "off, cc1,cc2,cc3,cc4,cc5,or cc6" . None of them have any effect or defeat the CCs.


Any other suggestions?

I think that the easiest way is to reset the Television to its default factory settings. These are the steps to reset the TV settings:

1. Unplug your Tv from the main power.

2. While it's unplugged, press and hold, for at least 30 seconds, the power button of the TV. This will reset it.

3. Plug the TV back on.

After the reset process, CC should be disabled.

Didn"t work!. My unit has the following components: a Panasonic 26" flat screen, a Verizon settop box, a Vizio speaker with a separate remote, Verizon FIOS input, a Verizon remote, and a Toshiba DVD/Cassette recorder.


I pulled the plug on the flat screen and held the power button down for 45 secs. Should I have also disconnected the Verizon STB or used the remote power button?
