Hello and welcome to

Please press the CC button on your remote control.

If this doesn't work please kindly tell me the model number of your TV.

Do you have Cable TV etc?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.

That did not work as there is not a CC button on my remote. It is a very basic Vizio remote. We also have Time Warner cable which is hooked up through a Motorola cable box. The Model number is 1080P.

Thankyou for your reply,

Since your TV doesn't have a CC button then it appears that the CC is coming from the Cable box.

I'm going to take a guess at what model of Cable box that you have and choose this one

On pg10 it shows that to access the CC feature you press the "Menu" button on the front of your Cable box and you can turn CC on & off from that menu.

If this is not your model then please kindly tell me the model number which will be on a label on the back of the Cable box.

If the CC is indeed coming from the Cable box then when you watch another source like a DVD for instance you will not see a CC box on the TV. Is this correct please?
