Hi,

If you just want to turn the closed captions on or off, there is a key marked "CC" on the Sony remote supplied with the TV. This is located between the "FREEZE" and "SLEEP" keys. Each time you press the "CC" key, the closed captions will cycle between ON and OFF.

The closed caption settings are located in the XMB (XrossMediaBar). To open the XMB and access the closed caption settings, please follow these instructions:

1. Switch the TV on
2. Press the "HOME" key on your Sony remote to open the XMB
3. The SETTINGS option (the toolbox) should be automatically selected. If not, use the LEFT/RIGHT arrow keys to highlight this option.
4. Press the DOWN arrow repeatedly until CLOSED CAPTION (CC in a box) is highlighted.
5. Press the "+" key (in the centre of the arrows) to open the CLOSED CAPTION menu

You should now be able to see the CC options. Continue using the arrow keys and the "+" key to change the options to your required settings.

If these options are greyed out / not available, it's probably because you are using a cable/satellite receiver. In this case, you will need to change the CC options from the on-screen menus for your cable/satellite receiver.

I can't give you any specific instructions for this as I don't know which brand/model of cable/satellite receiver you are using however, the process will be very similar. Look for a MENU button on your cable/satellite remote control and then use the arrow keys and the OK/SELECT key on the remote to navigate the menus and select options. Please note: on some cable boxes, you can only open the on-screen menus when the box is in 'standby' mode.

Hope this helps. If you need any further information on CC settings or assistance with setting the CC options on your cable box, please reply to me from within this page.

Regards,
BElectric

    Sounds simple enough but I haven't go a closed captions (cc) icon when I go into the settings menu or a freeze and sleep button on my remote.

    Interesting . . . are you certain that you listed your problem under the correct Sony model number - KDL40XBR? If you have a different model number, these instructions don't necessarily apply to you.

How to turn off closed caption


For over the air usually on the lower section of the remote look for CC or subt.

If on cable the Close Caption is controlled by the cable box not the TV. Usually there is a CC near the cable select button on the cable box remote. If not found then go into the cable box settings and look for
  1. Press the SETTINGS button
  2. Use the arrow buttons to scroll to the LANGUAGE section.
  3. Scroll to Closed Captioning and press the right arrow.
  4. Press the right arrow again and highlight the Off option

For some setups it is more complex. This link may help you with.

Can't turn closed caption off on our Samsung Series 7000 LED TV


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.

I can't turn the closed captioning OFF on my insgnia flat screen tv model NS-L CD37. i have a universal rca remote & the closed captioning won't go away - HELP !


The problem is that the universal remote is not sending the correct IR signal to your units IR receiver, regaurdless whether or not you turned the captions on with the universal, it is unable to send the signal to turn them off, if you have a menu button on your unit you could try accessing the closed caption option that way, alternatively you can do a system reset, if you can access that menu option, you may need to do a tv retune to get your stations, but the closed captioning should be off. I hope this helps. Good luck.

Need to know how to put the tv on close caption


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.
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 5)If you're watching a DVd on 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.
  5. thanks.

I need to activate CC for my Dad, Please help I have to go to work. I have a flat screen SOYO


Determine if closed captioning is available on the program that you've selected. In your program guide, the letters "CC" should appear at the end of the description.
Locate the closed captioning option on your remote. Some remotes have a "CC" button that you simply need to push to activate closed captioning
Locate the closed captioning option in your television's menu if there is no "CC" button on your remote. To do this, push the "menu" button on the remote control. The closed captioning option will probably be in the same section as the language function.
Set the closed captioning option to "on." Within several seconds, you should see the text appear on your screen.
To use closed captioning for DVDs, look for the "CC" label on the lower back section of the DVD case where it lists audio information. Turn on your TV's closed captioning and you should see the captioning like you do on a television program. Alternately, some DVDs include English subtitles that you can turn on in the setup/language menu of the DVD.
Thank you.
