Closed captioning was originally invented for television viewers with hearing disabilities, but it's useful any time you want to be able to read what is being said on TV. Sony Bravia televisions have settings that allow you to turn on closed captioning all the time, only when the TV is muted or turn it off completely. The television remote provides two options you can choose from when you want to stop the CC text from scrolling across your screen.

CC Button

Step 1

Press the "CC" button at the top of the remote. The current setting appears.

Step 2

Continue pressing the "CC" button until "Closed Captions: Off" appears.

Press the "Return" button to exit the CC display. Closed captioning is turned off.

Menu Button

Step 1

Press the "Menu" button. Press the "Down" arrow key until you reach the Settings menu.

Step 2

Press the "Right" arrow key to access the sub-menu. Press the "Down" arrow key to select "Closed Captions (CC)." Press the "Select" button.

Step 3

Use the "Down" arrow key to select "CC Display." Press the "+" button in the center of the arrow buttons to select this option.

Press the "Up" or "Down" arrow key to select "Off" and turn off closed captioning. Press the "Return" button three times to exit the menu.


  • When you access the Closed Captions (CC) menu, you can change display options and other settings to change the way closed captioning appears and works on your TV.
  • You can turn closed captioning back on at any time using either method. Simply select either one of the "On" options.
