I found a universal remote that is of the same brand as the television. I tried every code until I found one that worked all of the functions on the menu

I have an Orion 19"


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.

I do not know how to turn off the closed captioning on my son's orion tv set. I do not know the model type. I do know that closed captioning options are not on the menu.


If you have the original remote look for a button labeled "CC" or "Caption/Text" press this button till the screen says caption off.

Turning off the closed captioning without the remote.


I had the same problem. I got a Philips Magnavox Universal Remote that has a closed captioning button [CC]. Here's a link to the same type:

Turning off Closed Captioning


On the 27" TruFlat the closed caption button is hidden within the DVD buttons. You have to press it multiple times to shut off closed caption. It seems to have multiple sources for closed captions. Press the button until no source appears on the screen. ITS CONTROLED AT THE REMOTE CONTROL - NOT ON THE ON-SCREEN TV MENUS. Good Luck

Can't shut off closed caption


I have the JVC I Art 46" TV. The Close Caption was turn on accidentally by my grandson. After lots of searching for the original remote. I called JVC Customer Support. He told me to change the Close Caption settings to CC2 and T1. That fixed the CC without having the original remote.

Closed Caption


If you dont have the original remote, its going to be kinda hard, as universals wont work on this funtion on this set. The original remote has a button marked "CC" toward the bottom of the remote. Maybe you can borrowe on from a friend or a local sales store just so you can turn off the closed caption.. You can purchae a replace remote that is exactly the same as the original at http://www.remotes.com and enter your model number.
