If the show you are watching has digital closed captions, you can change the size, color, and opacity of the captions. (Not every show or every channel has digital captions.) Press the “Menu” button on the remote. Select “Settings” followed by “Television.” Choose “Closed Captioning” and this will bring up a screen that gives you the option to turn the captions on or off, but it also gives you options for “Digital closed captioning” and “Standard closed captioning.” Select “Change” for digital closed captioning and this will give you the options to change the text color, size, style, opacity and the color and opacity of the background.
When both standard and digital captions are turned on and available, the TV will default to the standard captions. In order to see the changes you have made to your digital captions, you may need to turn standard closed captioning off. To do this, follow the instructions above that you used to get to the “Digital closed captioning” but instead, choose “Change” next to “Standard closed captioning.” Turn off the standard closed captioning. However, when you are watching a channel or a show without digital closed captioning, you will need to go back in and turn standard closed captioning back on.
