I recently re-programmed my remote control for my TV and now the closed captioning is on the TV all of the time. There is no caption button on my remote, and I need to know how to make it stop! I have a Jensen JER 422 remote and a Magnavox TV that also does not have any caption button or anything like that on the front of the TV. HELP!!!

Closed captioning is an option usually selected during initial setup of a TV. If you turn off the TV speakers, there is a pause and closed captions begin. To change this, go back to te TV setup procedure and deselect CC
Unfortunately there is no dedicated button on that particular universal remote for operating the Closed Captioning feature on your TV.
You can try using the MENU button on that remote in order to access the AUDIO OPTIONS on your TV. Then see if you can activate the CLOSED CAPTIONING from there. See page 5 of the above manual for instructions on how to operate the MENU button on that remote.
Otherwise you will have to use the original factory remote control that came with the TV, or go out and buy a more expensive / advanced universal remote control with all the additional features and buttons that you require.
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.
Captioned programs are marked in TV listings by "CC". so press the cc button on the remote and the closed caption option will be applied.press 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.
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.
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.
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.
5)If you're watching aDVdon 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.
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.
