I can't access the closed caption menu on my Sceptre TV. It's a 32" TV. When I press the Menu button and scroll down to Function, I can only access Auto Lock. All of the Caption, Closed Caption, CC Background, and Text dialog bars won't open.

Re: I can't access the closed caption menu on my TV
As far as I know, all Sceptre HDTV has internal CC feature. However, for CC to work, it requires that CC be available on those programs (specific program you're currently watching). Sometimes, its just a phone call away from your Cable Provider if they have that particular service enable / disable on their system.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. goodluck!

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.
There is a Menu button on the TV for the TS2554 C101. Press this button to get the OSD menu. Then press the vol +/- buttons to highlight Set. Use the Ch +/- buttons to get Closed Caption. Then press Vol+ or Vol - to get the closed caption menu. Use the Ch+/- buttons to set the desired closed caption setting and then press Vol + or Vol - to confirm the selection. Press Menu again to exit.
This will only help if the captions are being interpreted by the TV. If there are open captions, they will not go away. If the closed captioning is on at a set top box, you will need to turn them off using the controls for the set top box. (I know satellite receivers have independent captions available.)
I hope this helps. If your TV doesn't have a menu button on the set, you will need a remote that has a matching Menu function. Some universal remotes should have this feature.
Using this button will set the Closed Caption mode when viewing a DTV or TV channel.
Enable Caption Using the TV Menu
Open the Menu screen, select the third icon, in the middle, this is the Setup Menu.
In the Setup Menu, choose the Caption option.
Caption: There are three items in it - Analog Closed Caption, Digital Closed Caption and Digital Caption Style
Analog Closed Caption: CC1, CC2, CC3, CC4, TEXT1,TEXT2, TEXT3, TEXT4.
Digital Closed Caption: Service1, Service2, Service3, Service4, Service5, Service6.
Digital Caption Style: There are two Caption Styles. One is the
automatic function set as the broadcaster, while the other is the custom
style where you can adjust the font size, color, opacity, background
color etc., accordingly.
The cc has been enabled on your cable box. Usually there is a hidden menu accessed by turning off the cable box. Yes I did say turning off the cable box first. Then immediately pressing the menu button on the front of the cable box. The hidden menu should pop up and one of the menu options will be closed captioning,. Disable it.
Captioned programs are marked in TV listings by "CC". so press the cc button on the remote and the closed caption option will be applied.press 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.
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.
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.
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.
5)If you're watching aDVdon 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.

If you have the Suddenlink remote and the DVR box you can turn captions on or off by accessing a technical menu. To do this, press POWER and Menu buttons together (menu 2 times) to bring up a special menu. Select Closed Captions. On the popup menu select closed captions and using Select button change to OFF or ON as you wish. The trick is to get the menu to come up. Timing of pressing the two buttons is frustrating and it may take a few times befotre you get the special menu.
look on top and behind of the monitor you will find buttons for your TV then follow this steps:
