If you have the original remote control, there will be a button marked "CC", and pressing it once, the closed caption funciton will turn OFF, and for an other press, it will re-appear. Now, here you are using a universal remote control. So it will be difficult to make closed caption. Try to enter its function menu by using present remote control, where you can make this funicion OFF, if you could enter into it.
Press the "CC" button on the remote controll once. If there is no such button on the remote control, get into Menu of the TV, surf thorugh, come to closed caption optione seclect fucntion, and make Closed Caption to OFF.
With our VIP receiver models, you have an option to turn on/off closed caption through the receiver. Press the Menu button on the remote, which will display the Main Menu on the TV screen. Press 8 (Preferences) and then press 6 (Closed Caption). On the Closed Caption screen, press 1. On the Closed Caption On/Off screen, select CC Off and then press Done from the TV screen (using your DISH remote). This will turn the feature off on the receiver. Test to see if it is turned off by watching a program that has CC. If it still appears, then the feature is activated through your TV. Please refer to your TV manual to turn the feature off. I hope this helps.
Black boxes in the middle of the screen are text boxes. Text is a part of the closed captioning feature either on your television or your cable/set top box. You would press the closed captioning button on the remote repeatedly until it displays cc off or something similar. Captioning might also be active on your cable box/set top box. There is normally a hidden menu on the cable box and that is where closed captioning is. You have to turn the cable box off. Yes I did say turn the cable box off. Then press the menu button on it and then the hidden menu will pop up. Then navigate to closed captioning and choose disable.
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.
Determine if closed captioning is available on the program that you've selected. In your program guide, the letters "CC" should appear at the end of the description. Locate the closed captioning option on your remote. Some remotes have a "CC" button that you simply need to push to activate closed captioning Locate the closed captioning option in your television's menu if there is no "CC" button on your remote. To do this, push the "menu" button on the remote control. The closed captioning option will probably be in the same section as the language function. Set the closed captioning option to "on." Within several seconds, you should see the text appear on your screen. To use closed captioning for DVDs, look for the "CC" label on the lower back section of the DVD case where it lists audio information. Turn on your TV's closed captioning and you should see the captioning like you do on a television program. Alternately, some DVDs include English subtitles that you can turn on in the setup/language menu of the DVD.
I cannot imagine the original person still has this issue but if you turn off the cable box, assuming it is an HD PVR, you then hit the menu key and you can go into a whole bunch of options including cc
I can't figure out how to turn the cc off either. I went to menu and then audio then captions and off but they still won't go off. The captions are only on when I am watching HD channels. Anyone know why?
