How to Get Rid of Closed Caption on a Sharp Aquos TV

As with many other television sets, the Sharp Aquos TV comes with closed captioning. This service posts the words and sentences spoken during a television program at the bottom of the Aquos TV. While closed captioning can be convenient for the hearing impaired, it can also be extremely irritating if you do not want the service enabled. Fortunately, closed captioning on a Sharp Aquos TV can be manually disabled as quickly as it can be enabled.
