    • Pressing the Display button on the remote.

NOTES:

  • When using a TV that uses the Cross Media Bar (XMB™) menu, it may be necessary to change the closed caption settings for both the analog and digital signals.
  • Refer to the television manual for detailed instructions on how to access the menu settings. Manuals are posted on your model support page.
  • If the CC information is still displayed, then it is being displayed from an external source such as the broadcaster, cable box, or satellite receiver. Contact the broadcaster or the manufacturer of the cable box or satellite receiver for instructions on removing the Closed Captioned information.
