Re: My Vizio 37' flat Screen TV Closed Caption wont turn...
If you have a digital cable box, turn off the box but leave the TV on. Hit the "Menu" button on the front of your cable box and a setup menu should come on. Use the cursor buttons on your box's front panel to go down to the "Captions" option, which is probably set to "Enabled" and hit the right or left cursor button to change it to "Disabled." That should solve your problem.

I have found that Closed Caption in a function of your television service and not of the TV itself. We have had cable TV and used the menu function on the cable remote to find CC and select 'off'; we now have DirectTV cable TV and use the remote for the receiver to select CC and 'off' on the drop down menu of CC. We get to CC by pressing 'info' on the remote and a list of options appears at the top of the screen, one of which is "CC". Pressing the right arrow key moves the cursor and when on "CC" pressing "SELECT" creates a drop down list; "OFF" is the option to turn off Closed Captions.
Different types TV service (over the air with antenna will likely require changing the TV mode to CC off on none), but if you use cable (Time Warner, Charter, ATT Uverse, etc.) or satellite (Dish Network or DirectTV) then the tuner or receiver will likely have your CC option.
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
Do you have a cable/satellite box connected to this tv?
Try this first it sounds like you have the closed caption turned on by accident. On the remote press the MENU button. Use the navigation keys to move the selector to CC and press OK. This should bring up the Closed Caption sub menu. Ensure that the closed caption is set to OFF
CC (Closed Caption) Press the down button to highlight the CC (Closed Caption) selection. Press the > button. A separate menu will appear with the following CC settings CC When watching regular analog (NTSC) TV, the CC feature is available in the Setup menu. Press the down button to highlight the CC selection. Press the > button to select CC1, CC2, CC3 or CC4. Once the adjustments are completed press the LAST button repeatedly to exit the OSD completely. Closed Caption for regular TV is usually CC1 or CC2.
1. Press CC.
This will present the Closed Caption information display.
2. Press CC while the Closed Caption information is
still on the screen.
Press repeatedly until you select the desired closed
INFO BOX ON THE SCREEN,
Audio : MONO
CC : 1/2 CC1 ------ Closed Caption information
Ratings : NONE
If a program has three services (Digital CC(ENG), CC1
and Text1), the closed caption display will toggle in this
1/3 ENG -- 2/3 CC1 --- 3/3 Text1 -- Off
The CC button keeps a record of the last service
selected in its memory.
If the last closed caption mode (e.g. 1/3ENG) you
selected is not available for the next program, or on
another channel, the closed caption service that is
available is automatically selected, and this service
appears in parentheses, e.g. “1/3(CC1)”.
Closed Caption services that appear in parentheses will
not be stored in the CC button's memory as your last
selected service. Only services that you have selected
with the CC button are stored.
If this doesn't work, the TV may need a software upgrade.
I can get you a copy of my manual LC-32SB23U for you. But, are you sure there is and "A" in the middle of your model number?
If the closed caption setting is set to off on the tv then it would definitely be coming out of your cable box. Usually the Cable box will have the setting in the menu's if not i would definily call your cable company and have them switch your settings for you
