Check whether there is a "CC" button on the remote control. If you are using a universal remote control, it might not have this button. As there is no selection for closed caption in the TV menu options, its original remote control will have this CC button. If you are the original remote, press this button once.
Hello Without its orginal remote, you can't turn OFF its close caption window. If you ahve its original remote control, inform me by Fixya comment. I'll assist you to turn off this option. Without orginal remote control, giving any advice to you to rectify this problem, will be waste of time.
It sounds as if you have the closed caption option activated on your TV. The easiest way to disable this is to search your remote for the closed caption button. It is most likely the button marked CC or ClosedCaption. Good Luck
If you have the original remote control, there's normally a single button that controls captioning. You press it to cycle through the captioning choices until you reach "off". If you don't have the original control, you may have caption control available through the on-screen menus. Not all makes and models provide it, though.
If you're using this TV with a cable converter, satellite receiver or another set-top box, the captions you're seeing may be coming from that device and not from the TV's caption decoder. Make sure you check that captioning is shut off on those devices as well.
Check the cable box to make sure the captions aren't truned on in the cable box.
