Usually in most cases closed captioning will not work in S-Video mode because they are seperating the luminance (brightness) from the chrominance (color) hence the name S-Video (seperated video). Closed caption only works on composite video (yellow input) or antenna mode.

My closed caption is on and I can't turn it off. I don'want the writing on the screen

Did you try turning it off with the closed caption button on the remote? Its labelled cc. If you dont have the original Vizio remote you will need to go into menu-settings and find the closed caption and turn it off there

I have a panasonic TV. direct tv remote for a . while programming the timer, somehow closed captioning got turned on & i after hours of trying to get it turned off, NO LUCK. it's driving me insane!!...

I could do better with a picture of the remote. Closed captioning is usually a multi-press button, that is each press takes you through each of the four types of closed captioning and then off.
You can enable closed captioning on a DVD Recorder, it looks like the TV, but its only on the picture from the DVD Recorder.
If you have a PVR, you could have closed captioning on on that device.
Try tuning off everything else to make sure it IS the TV.
Turn on the menu and find the closed captioning settings and set to OFF.
Press the close captioning button on the remote (If there is one) and press CC repeatedly until it says OFF.
Try and control close captioning, timer and menus with the ORIGINAL remote and not a programmable one.
Programmable remotes are not always completely compatible.

Suddenly, it's got "closed caption" or "subtitles" showing and DirectTV says it has to be the TV because my receiver doesn't support closed captions. There is no remote for this TV and the "menu" options...

Sometimes more than one button pushed [same time] on the tv itself can create an undesireable mode or setting. You may need an original remote to correct this. Contact Orion Sales at 1 800 289 0980

Need to know how to put the tv on close caption

Captioned programs are marked in TV listings by "CC". so press the cc button on the remote and the closed caption option will be that cc button again to turn off the closed caption option.
1) Check the size and manufactured year of your television. If it was made after 1993 and is larger than 13 inches, it has a closed captioning system built into it. Otherwise, you may need to purchase a separate closed caption system, which are available at a number of online outlets.
  1. 2)Turn on your TV and access the menu for closed captioning. The precise location of the menu varies by television set. Most are accessible by pressing the "Audio" or "Set Up" menu on your remote, then scrolling down to the "CC" or "Closed Captioning" option. Check your owner's manual for precise instructions.
  2. 3)Turn the closed captioning option to the "On" position. It will then run closed captions for every program that broadcasts them. Newer sets may allow you to adjust the size, font and colors of the closed captioning letters to fit your individual tastes.
  3. 4)Tune to a particular program for a few minutes to make sure the closed captions are working. Note that while many broadcasts run closed captioning, not all of them do. If the captions don't appear, check your TV listing to ensure the program includes them.
  4. 5)If you're watching a DVd on your TV, access the DVD's "Set Up" menu. It should have captioned options, which allow you to show captions in English and possibly other languages as well.
  5. thanks.

Closed captioning used to work. Disconnected TV to do some remodeling, now it doesn't show caption info. Tried selecting different menu options, i.e. CC1, CC2, etc. No luck. My TV is a Sony Wega...

You need to use a remote control to fix this one. There are options, and some say different things. but there is always a seperate button for Closed Captioning on TV's.

Closed caption / universal remote

Couple things to try:

On the remote - Press "Clear" button
May have to turn off CC in the TV menus. Try Menu on the remote and look for closed caption there.
If remote doesn't work, can try with buttons on TV itself to get into menu and turn it off.

Here's a link to the manual for that remote:
