If you can bring up the FEATURES menu and can navigate with the Harmony remote scroll down the the CAPTIONS options. If you can turn display OFF then you should be all set.

If you do not have the manual for this set you can see it at:

How to turn off closed captioning on my 32mf301b f7 magnavox tv without a remote?


You have to have a remote to do so. You may be able to purchase a universal remote and do the same thing.

I have a philips magnavox tv with the original remote. closed caption constantly (writing script)comes on tv screen, even though the remote has a cc button,i press it until cc off comes on, the cc goes off...


You're not doing anything wrong. Your TV is somehow turning the cc on "all by itself". Some bit is getting flipped inside the TV, turning the cc on.

either that or there is some sort of rf or ir interference near the TV that is mimicking the CC button on the remote.

Have you pressed the cc button on the remote, verified the cc is "off" on the TV and then removed the batteries from the remote for a while to make sure there isn't something hinky with the remote???

Philips 50" flat screen - Closed captioning won't turn off


on my magnavox it was the verizon fios remote that enabled it by accident (it is tuned to control the tv) however it was a cc button represented by the * on the remote that i had to select to change the cc. this didn't make it go away so i just pressed buttons i used the "Aspect" button represented by the # it changed the ratio and the message went away. I usually only use the fios remote to turn the tv on and off but this must be some whacky override that comes from the fios remote.

Can't get the closed caption to stop... I don't have the remote


If you have a cable set top box (STB), it may provide controls for CC. Look for a menu button under a hidden door on the set itself as another possibility

Close captioning


Well lets try the simple things first, Go to the TVs menu using the original TV remote and find the icon or menu that says Captions, in that menu turn all the closed captions OFF. Second there is a button on the original TV remote that says format, push this till you get to a screen that says FULL in the upper left corner. That should resolve your problems, If closed caption still comes through then we need to know if this set is hooked directly to cable or goes through a cable box. It sound like you simply had the closed caption turned on and the screen in one of the zoom formats this TV provides
