Hi , I`m Jack , I will be helping you today
Can you please send me a reply when you are ready to proceed ?

Expert:  Jack replied 11 months ago.

What is connected to this tv ?
Cable box,satellite or antenna/cable ?

Cable Box

Xfinity
Expert:  Jack replied 11 months ago.

O.k then the cable box will be the one that controls the closed caption so that is where you need to look .

Now depending on the box model and the cable company , it is not always obvious where that is , unlike tv`s , there are no CC or caption button on the remote and that will be in the user menu or even the hidden menu .

Can you give me the cable box name/model and your cable company`s name ?

Expert:  Jack replied 11 months ago.

Never mind the last question , just saw xfinity but the cable box name and model would come in handy , for example Motorola explorer 4250HD

Try this ;

Turn off the cable box and within 5 secs press the MENU/SETTINGS button on the remote , this may open a different menu with various items including "closed captions" , scroll down to it and set it to " disabled " then turn the cable box back on

Let me know how that goes

Couldn't get Menu set up....
Expert:  Jack replied 11 months ago.

O.k then press the MENU button and look for SETUP then CLOSED CAPTION SETUP and turn it off there if you can find it , otherwise do look at that link and tell me which box you have

Expert:  Jack replied 11 months ago.

Here is something else ;

On the X1 remote press the down arrow twice and once the bar appear press OK to turn the captions ON or OFF

Here is another way of doing that ;

Press the Xfinity button and select SETTINGS (gear icon) and open this (press OK ) then select Accessibility Settings and open that , you will see "closed captioning " in there , turn it off .

Expert:  Jack replied 11 months ago.

Now that procedure is direct from Comcast and for the X1 that you said you had
