Can I turn the caption mode off with the remote?


CC (Closed Caption)

To select the options in the CC sub-menu, press the MENU button or the #

button. A new menu will be displayed showing the following CC settings:

CC

The CC feature is available when watching regular analog (NTSC) TV.

Select from CC1, CC2, CC3 or CC4. Closed Caption for regular TV is

usually CC1 or CC2.

Digital CC Style

The Digital CC Style feature is available when watching digital TV.

Select either As Broadcaster or Custom. If Custom is selected then
you can customize the way Closed Caption is displayed.

My closed captions all channel is displayed on my vizio tv. I can't get it to go off. I use verizon fios my box doesn't have a menu button on it. Any other suggestions?


Closed captioning is selected during initial set up of your Vizio TV. If you return to that procedure, you can turn off closed captioning.

The closed capioning will not come off the screen. I went in the tv menu to shut it off but the tv menu says it is off but the words are still coming up on the screen


If you are getting your broadcast signal by way of a digital satellite or a digital cable box, you will need to access the menu(s) within them to turn off the (CC) closed captioning. I have had times when I had to contact the satellite or cable co. to have them help me get into their "special" menu to shut this off. Good luck !

I black rectangle appears on the screen and finally dissappears after a few minutes. WHat is this?


This sounds like the closed caption is turned on and in the text mode instead of the regular closed caption mode. With the remote or in the main menu there is a way to change or turn off the closed caption. Regular caption is usually marked CC1.

Closed caption wont turn off


I have a Vizio VX37L that i purchased on 12/26/08 and I had the same problem by 1/4/09. My five year old son loves to futz around with buttons and switches and he somehow enabled closed captions from the front of my Motorola digital cable box (I had it hooked up to the Vizio via HDMI 1.)
What you need to do is turn off your cable box and leave the Vizio on. Hit the "Menu" button on the front of the cable box and that should bring up a setup screen on your TV. Using the down cursor button on the front of the cable box, go down to the "Close Caption" section on the setup screen. It probably says "Enabled." Click on the right cursor button to disable CC and you should be good to go.

Close caption works when I select the input for tv, select hdmi input and the close caption option disappears from the menu. I have a shaw cable pvr hd box and need the close caption to work on all...


You need to turn on closed captions through the menu of your PVR. To have it on all the time, turn the box off, press menu on the front of the box, and scroll down to captions.
This should fix the problem

Closed captions will not disappear


Some TV will not display close caption in HD mode. This is why its Grey out in HD mode. If you switch to regular input, i can bet you your close caption will not be Grey out. The problem you are having is your cable box has close caption enable. You must go into the cable box menu and turn caption off. In some box you may have to call your cable provide for assistant.
