I do not have the original remote and need to know how to access the menu in order to select cable TV. The only buttons on the fron are power, volume and channel. The universal remote will not pull up the menu.

You usually need the original remote. The trouble with universal remotes is that they generally control only the basic functions of a TV (power, volume, channel) but not much else. Without the original, you often lose other functions. You can try the front panel buttons if yours has them. On some sets the on-screen menus allow you to access caption settings.
But are you sure the captions are coming from the TV? Sure, the TV is displaying them, but if you have a satellite receiver, cable box or digital set-top box, the captions may be coming from that device. This is likely to be true if the captions just mysteriously started and you don't have or aren't using the TV original remote. These devices often don't allow a TV's built-in caption decoder to work properly, so they provide captions themselves. You may have turned captions on using that device's remote. Check the menu for caption controls.
lost the remote?... try a different universal remote. i have a orion 27" but i think it has a menu button on the front of the set. im at work.. when i get home ill check and repost....if you dont want to buy another universal.. barrow a friends and give it a try... sometimes the manufacture puts updated CODE's for the remote on the website.. might check that as well. good luck.. more to come.
Do you just mean to select channels, or do you need to have it search for active channels (programming mode)? If just select channels, then most remotes have channel up & down buttons, in addition to the number pad. To select by numbers, use 2 digits: 04, 06, 08, 10, 22 and so forth.
If the set needs to be placed in the setup or autoprogram mode to search for active channels, then the menu functions must be used.
You may be able to find an online manual on Orion's website. Use your TV model number.
You'll need to get a universal remote if not the original... The original can be purchased from places like anyremote.com and a good universal from Radio Shack... I'd strongly recommend getting the original because some features are ONLY accessible through the original remote.
