    thanks for mentioning the box. We disconnected the cable from the box and went straight into the TV and it no longer has the closed captions on the screen. I am calling our cable company to see if they have a setting in the box that can be changed. I will let you know for sure later on.

    The cable provider had 2 different cable company technicians that couldn't get it turned off. After you sent your message about the box, I called for support and the lady on the phone walked me through fixing the problem. thanks very much for your help

The "normal way to shut it off" is a little vague to me-- ---Have you tried selecting CC1,CC2,CC3,or TEXT1,2,or3? Take your time selecting caption on functions and thus you will discover how to de-activate cc.I am guessing that since you moved,you can't locate your owners manual??--Last thought-is your source box cc on??

How do you remove closed captioning? I have a 4yr old 50" plasma tv. Today the captioning just popped up and I can't figure out how to get rid of it


1* Use the CAPTION button repeatedly to select Caption Off, EZ Mute, or On.
* EZ Mute shows the selected captions option (if available on program) when the TV sound is muted.
2* Press the ENTER button to save.

Caption Tips

* Not all TV broadcasts include closed caption signals.

* Sometimes TV stations broadcast four different caption signals

on the same channel. By selecting CC 1 to CC 2, you

can choose which signal you view. CC 1 is usually the signal

with the captions, while Another mode might show demonstration

or programming information.

* Your TV might not receive caption signals normally in the following

How do i remove closed caption on tv - can't get menu option on remote to work - thanks.

What is the TV source? Could the captions be coming from that source? If it is, try disabling them from the Menu for the set top box (cable, satellite, DVD).

There is a menu button on the TV that will let you access the OSD if the Child Lock is not enabled.. Then the same directions apply Set > Closed Caption (Off, CC-1, CC-2, CC-Mute). If you can't access the menu directly, then the control board may be bad. Try for used parts with minimal wear (sets that were broken in shipping) or another supplier. You will need to open the TV and get the part number of the current board.

I hope this helps.

(the set-top box issue is one I have dealt with. A neighbor with an older TV needed to use the captions from the satellite receiver set to single mode to get captions for the visiting relative. This meant that both sets watched the captions until they were turned off. The main TV still showed the captions if they remembered to reset the receiver to Dual mode.)

Need to know how to put the tv on close caption

Captioned programs are marked in TV listings by "CC". so press the cc button on the remote and the closed caption option will be 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.
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 5)If you're watching a DVd on 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.
  5. thanks.

New Toshiba 37" flat screen always displays Closed Captions. Feature is turned off with TV remote, feature not available on Cable remote. Toshiba says it is Cable company problem, Mediacom cable can...

I've had this problem for a bit, it seems that there are two ways to turn off the closed captions.
1:Menu--->Preferences--->CC and Digital Audio Selectors. This displays the menu on the bottom of the screen with the choices of Closed Caption formats and digital audio. This is not the correct menu to be in. This turns off the CC as long as the TV is not turned off or the input is not changed. This is a temporarily either turns the CC on or off.
The Solution:
2:Menu--->Setup--->TV Settings--->Closed Captions Settings Displays a menu in the center of the screen, with the options of Turning the Closed Captions on and off, the Analog CC Mode and Digital CC settings. You must turn the Closed Captions off in this menu or the changes to CC are temporary.
For the record:
1. I'm aware I'm 2 years late on this, but I just want others to be able to solve this issue on their Toshiba. Don't worry, my Toshiba is the same age as yours
2. I've lost faith in Tech Support ages ago. I'm sorry that they were that incompetent.
3. Its ridiculous that there are two entirely different menus to alter the closed captions. Took me forever to figure this out.
Hope this helps you and others.
