There are several universal remotes on the market that can be programmed to work this function on your TV, one that comes to mind are the Logitech Harmony remotes. The great thing about this remote is it will work for any device in your house. The down side is they are 100$+.

Now if you simply want to turn off CC with the remote, and then take it back to the store, then that could work too! ;)

Another option would be to leave the TV completely unhooked for a while, hoping to "clear" and memory on the TV, resetting closed captioning back to the factory default. A lot of older TV's also would have a reset button, usually behind and door that could accomplish this. There is no guarantee that this would even work though. I think the safest bet would be a new universal like the Harmony.

Cheers!

I doo not have the origanal control for my philips tv... I have a dish universal remote!!! And it does not give me the option for cc off!!! Help me plz its driving me crazy


That is a problem, the original remote is needed for all options, you could go to the nearest TV repair shop to see if they might have good used one for your model. Some tv tech's keep a large box of remotes for that purpose. The only other option is contact the company for a new remote if they are still available.

No remote how to turn off cc


You might try a Magnavox brand universal remote. Get one with a "menu" button. Often they give nearly complete control on a Magnavox brand TV. Otherwise, the only real solution is to purchase the exact original remote. There are many vendors on the Internet selling replacements, but often the costs are ridiculous.

Close caption turns on and off by itself problem


Check the cable box to make sure the captions aren't truned on in the cable box.

If not -if it really is the Magnavox caption service- then -

This is assuming you have the original remote:
1 Press MENU to show the on-screen
menu.
2 Press VOL+ or VOL- until SET is highlighted.
3 Press CH+ or CH- repeatedly to
highlight CLOSED CAPTION.
4 Press VOL+ or VOL-
to display the
CLOSED CAPTION menu.
5 Press CH+ or CH- to select the
closed caption you want (OFF, CC-1,
CC-2, or CC-MUTE).
CC-MUTE sets
the TV to show closed captions when
you press MUTE. The TV volume will be
disabled until you press MUTE again to
restore the sound.
6 Press VOL+ or VOL-
to confirm your
selection.
7 Press TV/AV/EXIT to remove the
menu.
