How do I get rid of closed captions? I have tried the Menu

Customer Question

How do I get rid of closed captions? I have tried the Menu function "caption" and although I have selected off, the closed captions come right back after "return". Must have done it 20 times the last 2 days. HELP!! Bill
JA: What's the model number of your TV? How old is it?
Customer: I do not know the MN. It is 2 years old. CC was not an issue until 3 days ago.
JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?
Customer: Menu works. I can select caption,set it to off. But the CC does not go away. Thought I got it once but powered doff & on and it came back. What do I hit after I get it to "caption off" to select that mode?
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: 3 days. Nothing special that I know of.
JA: Is there anything else the TV Technician should be aware of?
Customer: no.
