    You should be able to turn off the captioning
    in the Menu by toggleing the front controls.
    If you cannot then very possible the eeprom is
    corrupted ,this would require diagnoses by a Tech.


    You dont need the remote to do this.

    Get the original factory remote.... or you can call
    1-800-REMOTES for price and availability.

    I know these CTC185A chassis, Press menu button on the tv, use your
    remote press three (that is number shown 3 next to "Screen" and it
    will list few items including CC. Press that number for CC and turn
    it off. For front panel buttons, press menu button to diaplay first
    level menu. Channel buttons moves selections down and up. Volume
    buttons changes setting or selects submenus.

    RCA does sell RCA universal remotes (found in walmarts, etc). All in
    One works 100% also. This what I did with my 19" CTC185 chassis with
    an all in one remote.

    That won't work if the tv set has the parental lock turned on that locks out
    the menu button on the front of the tv set.

    Simple fix is to buy a GE/RCA brand universal remote control that has the
    buttons needed. They are cheap and readily available.
