    I can't turn the closed caption off. I believe it turned on automatically, no one admits to turning it on.

    I have the same problem. Popped a DVD in a connected player and CC is showing up, even though on the menu "off" is selected.

I have a Vizio VX37L that i purchased on 12/26/08 and I had the same problem by 1/4/09. My five year old son loves to futz around with buttons and switches and he somehow enabled closed captions from the front of my Motorola digital cable box (I had it hooked up to the Vizio via HDMI 1.)
What you need to do is turn off your cable box and leave the Vizio on. Hit the "Menu" button on the front of the cable box and that should bring up a setup screen on your TV. Using the down cursor button on the front of the cable box, go down to the "Close Caption" section on the setup screen. It probably says "Enabled." Click on the right cursor button to disable CC and you should be good to go.

I didn't find my exact problem or solution online so I'm posting it for everyone.

My Vizio 42" kept displaying Closed Caption: Off at the top right of the screen. And no matter if I turned it back on and then off again, could I get rid of the words at the top right of the screen.

Eventually I went to the Menu on my FIOS TV box and went to MENU>SETTINGS>TELEVISION>MODES>DISABLE to finally get rid of the text on the screen. Sheer luck that I tried that setting because I have no idea what it is or what it has to do with Closed Captions. But so far seems to have worked. I hope this helps someone else.

We could not get the captioning to go off either after it had suddenly came on one day so we bought another tv and guess what it was still on come to find out it was the cable box that had to be changed out.

Before taking any dastic action like sending out the set for service, carefuly read the instruction manual. Call the tech support for your TV set to see if they have a user level solution.

If it possible that there is a defect in the set. What I have seen when I was working in TV servicing, is the closed caption IC become defective, or some other defective component that is not allowing the turn-off command to occure. It is also possible that there is a fault in the uPC, and thus the turn off command is not being executed.

Problem was with my cable remote controller. After going nuts for days trying to turn it off, I look there and bye-bye CC. I would check that as well.

How do get closed caption Vizio VF550M 55 in. LCD HDTV?


Closed Caption availability may depend on the source. To enable caption viewing, press Menu (on the TV or the remote). Navigate to the Setup menu with the Up/Down arrows on the remote or the Channel Up/Down buttons on the TV. Once Setup is highlighted, press the Menu button again. Repeat the up/down navigation to the CC menu and Menu to select. The first option should be On/Off. Now use the left/right arrows on the remote (or volume up/down buttons on the TV) to choose the desired CC state. Press Menu to save or Last to cancel and return to the previous menu. Press after pressing Menu to return to the previous menu. If your content is from a digital source, you can make adjustments in the appearance of the captions by navigating to those sections of the CC sub-menu. If you would like some idea of what the screen will look like as you navigate the On-Screen Display, see the manual on Page 41. Vizio makes the manual available on their support page. The direct link to the manual is cdn.vizio.com/documents/downloads/hdtv/VF550M/155Manual.pdf . (Note: you'll need Adobe Reader or a similar program to access the manual.)

For some content, you may need to enable the captions at a set-top box (cable/satellite receiver/etc.). In that case, consult the manual for those devices or post a comment with the make/model for additional help.

I hope this helps.

My Vizio VA19L 19'' LCD Television's closed captioning isn't working. The closed caption isn't on the settings menu either. How can I get closed captioning on?


Just press the CC button on the remote. Some TV stations may not send out CC data. Pressing the CC button many times will cycle thru all the options including OFF.

How to turn closed caption off?


If the cc button on your Sharp remote control isn't turning them off then the captions may be coming from your cable box. The hidden menu to access closed captioning on the cable box is usually found by turning it off and then (yes I did say turn the cable box off) then press the menu button on the front of it immediately after turning it off. Then you navigate down to captions and disable them. When you turn the cable box back on the captions should no longer be there.

Cannot turn CC ON/OFF via remotes


Try this combination.

1) Start with the cable box turned on and TV on tuned to the cable box.

2) Press the POWER button for the cable box and then quickly press the MENU button.

3) This should bring up the user setting menu. Use the arrow keys on remote to go to Closed Caption and press right arrow button this should bring up the closed caption menu.

4) Press the OK button and this should either turn CC on or off.

5) Once Closed Caption is turned off press LEFT ARROW button to return to User Settings Menu.

6) Press the POWER button to turn the Cable box back on and the Closed Caption should be gone....


Good Luck.....

My Vizio 37' flat Screen TV Closed Caption wont turn off


If you have a digital cable box, turn off the box but leave the TV on. Hit the "Menu" button on the front of your cable box and a setup menu should come on. Use the cursor buttons on your box's front panel to go down to the "Captions" option, which is probably set to "Enabled" and hit the right or left cursor button to change it to "Disabled." That should solve your problem.
