For the life of me I can't figure out how to switch on closed caption on my samsung multisystem tv. I tried all the menu choices and read the manual end-to-end with no luck. Any help would be much appreciated

To view the captions, all you have to do is turn on the decoder by following these simple steps:
Access your TV menu screen using your remote or by pressing a button on the face of the TV.
Select the closed captions heading. Several different caption options may appear.
Select the "CC1" option.
Exit the menu.
Closed captions should appear within approximately one minute of adjusting this setting. If they do not, review this portion of your television's operating manual or contact the manufacturer of the television set.
Public Television stations do not transmit Closed captioning
Make sure it isn't your cable or satellite TV service making the captions, as closed captions on your TV are separate from the ones produced by your service provider. If it isn't your cable/ satellite, open the TV menu and find the Audio/Visual properties section of the menu (audio and visual might be separate sections), and find the closed captions or CC options menu. When you do just change the setting from whatever it is on, to off. If your TV remote is fancier than mine (which it probably is), their could possibly be a closed caption button on the remote for easy access. In this case just push the button and change what you need to.
Correct solution WITH DIRECT TV is NOT going to SETUP MENU on your Samsung TV and enabling it, this won't work with Direct TV!! I'll walk you through it. Grab your Direct TV remote, hit "Menu", pan down to "Parental, Fav & Setup", next click "System Set-up", next click "Display", now at the top of the screen between "Preferences" and "Clock" is "Captioning", click on it, now the first box reads Captioning TURN IT FROM OFF TO ON! You now have Captioning.
If the closed caption setting is set to off on the tv then it would definitely be coming out of your cable box. Usually the Cable box will have the setting in the menu's if not i would definily call your cable company and have them switch your settings for you
There are external close caption boxes that you can add to your system. But be aware: many cable boxes do not process the close captioning information "through", forcing you to use the close captioning on the cable box.
closed caption depends on your tv stations. If a tv station does not support providng closed captions, then it will not really show closed captions. Closed captions depends really on the feature of a tv station
