Either on the remote control or in the tv menu somewhere will be something labeled "cctv". you might have to cycle through the few different kinds of cctv to turn it off.

Turn your TV ON, then turn your cable box OFF. Press the Menu button on the front of your cable box. A system menu will pop up and you should be able to find an option to turn CC off/on.

Motorola DCT6412 Cable box

Ive seen this before...that may be indicative of an upgrade of the software in the cable box that comes from your cable provider. The best thing to do is plug it back in, let it get the "yellow ring" for a bit, and wait for the upgrade (it make take 10 - 15 minutes). Then things should return to normal... If the condition persists, try to call the cable company.
